Today I finally was able to get out and play a round of golf in one of my new pair of ICONs that I got for Christmas. I had read where everyone on here says they are "ready to go" out of the box and need no break-in period. Now I had worn them around the store a little, but we all know that's not the same. I have to admit, I was skeptical about the "no break-in period" claim. I thought, sure they may be very comfortable out of the box but they HAVE to be a little stiff right? They have to rub at least one small blister somewhere, right? WRONG! I am now a believer. These shoes never felt tight/rigid...in fact they really did feel like I'd worn them MANY times. By far the most comfortable shoes I have worn around the golf course. Not ONE SINGLE BLISTER to be found. Being a walker, comfortable shoes are a must and these are it. I do not see myself buying anything from here on out except ICONs. Lucky for me, I have two pair already, a pair of ICONs MyJoys on the way, and I just bought a pair of ICONs on clearance that should be here next week. Guys, I think I have a shoe problem...my wife just kind of looked at me funny and laughed when I told her I bought ANOTHER pair of golf shoes (this brings me to 8 total now, four of which are ICONs when everything arrives).
