Anyone else get this?

My foot kills me after 18 holes just the one foot, had 18 holes last night wore my oakley spikeless shoes which are comfortable but after 18 my feet were hurting and today I can barely walk

Could it be the shoes? Not enough support? Don't really want to change shoes but would if I think they're the problem

Anyone have any recommendations for shoes that are maybe more supportive but still "trainer" comfy?

And the kicker is I'm a size 13! S lots of stuff is out as it only goes to an 11 or 12

Is this the first time this has happened and the first time you have worn your Oakleys? If yes then it is obviously the shoe. If not and you are just about unable to walk after a round of golf then something is probably a bit more wrong than the support of the shoe?

every round for me due to a fallen met arch, supposed to wear a 'special' insole and shoe but sod that as it would limit choice massively, I find it eases after a few hours anyway. Not sure I will be golfing in my 60's though as its deffo getting worse with age :(

It could just be the harder ground at the moment as possibly more impact on the foot walking.

It's odd I get sore feet after most rounds but not to the extent of yesterday, I don't recall having such sore feet after a round in my adipure z's but its been such a long time since I've worn them, as they're like brown "proper shoes" and look wrong when your wearing shorts so i've been in the oakleys for a few months now

I do have flat feet, but also I'm a postie so walking is not a problem for me as I walk miles every day

Very unusual, perhaps a trip to the docs is in order :mad:

Does it happen if you go for a long walk in regular trainers?

Not really, walk miles for work in royal mail issue cat trainers and don't seem to struggle, it does only appear to be after golf

Perhaps a more "trainer" style shoe might be in order

I like the adidas crossflex but hear bad things about the longevity and ability to clean them after a round

There seems to be so many trainer style shoes out there now. Ecco Streets are ridiculously comfy for me. Not sure about the amount of support they give.

Strange that its only one foot tho. Maybe it's the way you turn/transfer weight during your swing?? I'm only guessing.

I do't so much get sore feet, mine just ache for an hour or 2 after.

I'm thinking of gettingsome insoles to see if these help with it.

Either that or dunking them in ice cold water when I get back from a round :mad:

It's my right foot so maybe I finish funnily on it, it does soon to be my big toe "region"

I'd try ecco's and footjoy but sadly hey only go up to a tiny 12 lol

I'm pretty much limited to adidas, puma and the odd nike, although I sometimes fit a 12 in nike

When you say it's in the big toe region, is it the joint of the toe or just general soreness? I only ask as I have a problem with the joint of my big toe on my right foot. It's more pain than soreness though

ive found the soles of my feet sore lately , im putting it down to the hard ground (& been overweight doesnt help) i was beginning to think it was the shoes also as i dont remember havig this problem wearing the FJ , mind you that was last "summer" when the fairways were never as hard as they are now ..

i used to have a problem like this. get yourself to a running shop that specialises in running shoes. They will do one of those GAIT (i think its called that) tests and will recommend a form of insole (will be about £15). i can assure you it will help a lot. also, saves buying another pair of shoes!

Yep, what this guy says!!

Strange it being your right foot though as your left probably takes more abuse during a golf swing. I personally have never tried these spikeless shoes for the main reason being what you said! I don't think they would offer the support your feet need. I played once at the golf range with my trainers on and it was terrible!

Morning mate, is it the big toe joint? If so I am having exactly the same issue and I wear a 13 too. Unfortunately for me though it appears to be a Hallux Limitus (Google it, I promise I am not making it up) Arthritus is annoyingly popular in my family and it certainly seems like the issue for me.

My Addidas 360's have been great but after leaving them at my old mans I have used an old pair recently... think its worth the trip over as this pain has increased since wearing the old pair.
