Thanks for posting the question KRD and welcome to the community. There's lot of good information on the spike vs. spikeless shoes this site that can be found using the search function.
That said, I wear both and have only once had an issue -- my ball landed, and stayed, on a very, very steep grass wall of a bunker. I'm not sure it would have been much different with spikes but I definitely struggled to get a good footing.
Other than that one incident, I have had no issues playing in any other terrain or wet conditions. They shoes tend to be softer and more flexible than traditional golf shoes but they also look very casual.
Good luck, keep us posted and post pics of your new shoes on the 2014 Thread.
