    What was the last year FJ Classics had 12 spikes on the bottom?

    I think you need to go back pretty far -  my oldest pair  - style 51498 has 11 spikes.

  •  

    As far back as I can remember (which is quite a while) they only had 11 spikes.

  •  

    I don't think they ever had 12, I remember buying replacement spikes and only needing 22. That goes back over 40 years anyway.

    I've got to agree with NCBob, CROCMAN, and Hokies.  I do not recall any golf shoe, FJ or other, with more than 11 spikes:  4 on the heel and seven on the forefoot.  I'll even stretch the time frame back to the late 60's.  Of course, it's possible that there was/is an unusual maker out there that uses 12 spikes/cleats, but I'm not aware of any.

    Didn't Ben Hogan have a custom shoe made in England that had an extra spike? Not sure if an extra spike meant there were twelve or not, but I recall reading about Mr. Hogan's preference for an added spike once...

    There is actually a pair of exotics (lizard skin) on eBay right now that has twelve...4 on the heel and 8 at the forefoot.  Doesn't say what year, but they certainly did make them with 12 at some point.

    My 59819's have twelve. If my memory is right they were purchased about 1998.
