Golf shoes

Post by thecolonel » Wed May 09, 2018 9:24 pm

Why is every single pair of Footjoys here XW(Extra wide) do thais have wide feet? Really? One retailer told me Footjoy only supply Thailand with this fitting?? Bizarre!

And also why are golf shoes here 2-3 times UK price? Nuts! They're probably made here!

Unfortunately, a lot seems to be about protecting the jobs for the people.
So, anything imported is taxed to hell.
It's maybe about time that Thai exports get the same.

The reason for the larger size is mainly to do with ones fitting getting broader with the constant use of open sandals in this hot and humid climate. I have always used a broad shoe with a size 8, however since arriving here I now take a xwide shoe size 10. I have spoken to numerous golfing friends and they concur with this too. Perhaps your feet have not had this or perhaps you have not been here long enough!
