Well, after wearing my new City shoes today, I'm very impressed! They are very comfortable and easy to wear. The Laser Last that the City is made on is the same as the Icon saddle but feels a touch smaller in the toe area which is fine to me. That makes them more in line with all the other Icon styles I have, and like the size of. One of the first things I noticed was the fact that the leather did not absorb any of the morning dew. Later, when I cleaned them, this was very obvious as the water just ran right off the shoes. And speaking of cleaning them, they were very easy to clean and hardly looked like they had even been used. Right out of the box, basically, and on to the golf course with no break-in at all, not a blister or any discomfort. Just happy to be wearing them! Traction wise, they were excellent. No slipping and easy to walk around. I did not notice any lack of grip with two less spikes in the heels. Another nice feature is that the soles were not picking up and holding onto all the morning wet grass. I have always liked the Pulsar spikes that the City comes with and they worked well.
All in all, I think that FootJoy hit a home run with the new City shoe! They are very stylish and have the look of very popular casual shoes you would see at Nordstoms or DSW. Well done FootJoy. I highly recommend these shoes, I think anyone would be happy with them.
