Alternative to Golf Shoes : Quick Spikes


You're looking at a new alternative to golf shoes, better known as Quick Spikes. Not only were Quick Spikes launched as an alternative to golf shoes, but also as an innovative and convenient product for the golfer who's always on the run. Quick Spikes are designed to fit comfortably over any pair of regular shoes or sneakers to deliver a snug, secure footwear experience in all golf conditions. 

Recently we were asked to put Quick Spikes through the ole' ringer and give them a proper testing and review session. Two weeks later, we're finished and ready to show you the results... Here we go!

quick-spikes-review.jpg"The idea for Quick Spikes was born from a personal experience when I was caught on a golf vacation with my spikes resting safely at home, after choosing to play in sneakers and slipping with every swing, I had the motivation to develop aproduct that could help golfers in a similar situation." -Brendan Walsh, Quick Spikes Founder and President

The Review:

Comfort: (10 out of 10) They're only as comfortable as the shoes you put them on, so choose wisely! Once on, you hardly notice them except for the better grip they give your shoes. They're like snow chains for you feet.

Style: (8 out of 10) They look best on dark or black colored shoes, and stick out and sometimes clash against lighter colors. Keep in mind, these aren't a fashion statement, in-fact you might even get some ribbing from your playing partners if they see you slipping them on before a round. When I tried them on for the first time on the course nobody even noticed I was wearing them, until I told them.

Convenience: (10 out of 10) If you do a lot of traveling or just don't want to spend $100 to $300 on a pair of "real" golf shoes, quick spikes are perfect. They pack easily and don't take up much space at all. I keep a pair in my golf bag now just in case I forget my golf shoes or don't feel like bringing them at all.

Durability: (8 out of 10) Only time will tell in this category, but from right out of the box we can tell that the spikes as well as the rubber are made from quality materials and proved to be quite durable throughout testing. Our biggest worry would be that over time (years) the rubber might stretch out or become dry and cracked.

Stability: (9 out of 10) Surprisingly stable! We thought that the Quick Spikes system might set you up a little higher that you're used to, but we were absolutely wrong and they actually keep you in full contact with the ground at all times with ease. The only time we felt regular golf shoes had the upper-hand on the quick spikes was in wet conditions. It felt like the spikes were holding to the ground, but that the shoe and the rubber of the quick spikes system were slipping against each other. Nothing major, but something to keep in-mind for sure!

Value: (9 out of 10) At one quarter the cost of an average pair of golf shoes, the Quick Spikes are a steal, worth more than the retail price if you want our opinion!

The Bottom Line: For new golfers who don't want to drop a ton of cash on pricey golf shoes or for the golfer who's always on-the-go the Quick Spikes are a great alternative and convenient way to get on and off the course, all while staying in firm contact with the turf. Not to mention they'd also make for a great birthday or holiday present for that special golfer in the family.
