CleatSkins - Awesome
By Kickntrue on 9/22/08
I found a new product over the weekend that's coming to the golf world- CleatSkins. Think of CleatSkins as a slipper or rubber booty that slips over your golf cleats so you don't have to deal with taking them on and off either at your car or clubhouse. At the end of the round I find myself wanting to just jump in the car and driving. Now you can- and you don't need to worry about making a pit stop or two either.

It should save your cleats from walking on pavement or concrete AND make life easier getting in and out. Now my best pair of shoes don't need to live in my basement or in my trunk. I can put them in the bedroom and just wear them with CleatSkins.

And of course... this is all pre-excitement. They don't actually exist yet for golf- but the site says they're coming. They do already exist for other sports, which if you have kids playing make a lot of sense. I always slipped when walking around in my cleats.

Plus I for one can attest that Andrew has wanted his own pair of "ruby slippers" ever since he saw the wizard of oz. From the looks of that picture the day may finally be here for you Andrew.

It looks like it should have one of those fake flowers on the front of it to make it a little snazzier.

Wow- you guys are killing these things. :) Maybe the red one was a bad example to show. These things while not as stylish as they'd like to think of themselves- they aren't that bad.

My thought is that men enjoy taking their golf shoes off after a round. I like to throw on flip-flops and go into the club house for a beer. The fact that I'm now wearing no shoes or socks allows the whole clubhouse to enjoy my manly foot essence.

Cleatskins - for the man who also carries a purse.

Seriously though --- I'm with Josh, before and after golf I don't want to wear my golf shoes. I'd rather be in flip-flops or sneakers... this seems like a silly product.

Kickntrue, why would you want to pad around your powder room in the same dainty slippers you wear to the golf course. You'll track mud on your new carpet.

Not a chance these take off.

I think what shocks me most about the comments are how uncomfortable most people think their golf shoes are. Not that I would wear a covers on mine, but if I am sitting out having a beer at the 19th hole I don't usually change shoes. Perhaps I just got lucky and found a comfortable pair of shoes.

Comfortable shoes indeed. Even the guy in the kilt won't wear them. That should say EVERYTHING.
