post #40576 of 70737

Anybody else notice the Strand and Weybridge golf shoes on the site?  They're on non-standard lasts too.  The Strand is on the 3 last instead of its standard 5 last.

I just got a pair of Fifth Streets seconds. Due to the closed lacing, putting them on is a bit of a pain. Does anyone have a preferred lacing method? They're currently laced using Shoe Shop Lacing.

Sorry to ask again, but does anyone have a recommendation on what to do about the lump on the right middle of the sole? They are new seconds. Could it be the cork bed is bad or might it press down in time?



Thanks,

They're part of the "rough" collection, I believe thats normal.

I do the Straight European lacing method for my Fifth Streets.  Seems to work well for me.

I do not believe that is accurate. He's seems to be referring to a lump in the insole which would not be normal under any circumstances. Several others have had shoes with this issue iirc, and while it seemed to go down a little bit it didn't disappear. I would not keep a shoe that has that issue as it would make the shoe terribly uncomfortable.

I recently had that in the heel of one of my shoes and it went away after a few hours however it was not golf ball more like pebble. I have the rush st and they have no issues from the rough collection. Have you tried using your hand to press it down.

I just got the heritage bone walnuts used...once worn for dirt cheap. I plan on taking the spikes off adding soul guards and using them as normal shoes.

EDIT: I use shoe trees after every wear.

That looks pretty normal to me.

The Leeds I can live with, the strands I'm torn on.

Canted toe cap, this seems more noticeable than what I've seen on other seconds. It likely wouldn't bother me as much if the right shoe wasn't bang on and looks so much better as a result.

If I had the option to I would return those.

The right sole has a rather uncomfortable bump in the front center. Could that be the defect?

Also the lining is only on the back?? Is this normal. I want to keep it but not sure if the bump will go away.

 

I doubt that the lump is the defect that made them seconds as that likely wouldn't be detected until the shoes are worn.  It should just be some unevenness in the cork underneath the insole.  I'd recommend wearing them around the house for several hours per wear, for several days and see if it dissipates.  For some people it does, but for others it doesn't.  Just don't wear them outside and nullify your chance to return them. 

 

Regarding your second question, I assume you are talking about the orange sock liner?  That's normal.  Sock liners are traditionally only 3/4 length in Goodyear-welted shoes.

FWIW, I believe I've read quite a few posts (either here or maybe somewhere else) about the rough collection shoes (most often the McTavish) having a "lump" under the forefoot in at least one of the shoes.  It seems like this, while not being "normal", is rather common.  I'm not sure if it's a byproduct of the cork laying process that would only affect this line of shoes (that doesn't seem to make sense), but who knows.
