Etonic Stabilizer Golf Shoes 2011
I wrote about my dissatisfaction with a pair of Etonic golf shoes back in July. Last month the CEO of Etonic World Wide called me and apologized for my experience. My complaint wasn’t that quality control could miss a bad pair of shoes but that customer service appeared to be non-existent. I was told that the customer service issue had been addressed and I was thanked for making Etonic a better company.
Tom Elwell (the CEO) is a man of his word. There is now a wealth of contacts on the Etonic website. In addition he asked if I would be willing to review a new pair of Etonic Stabilizers. I agreed to try them and he sent me a pair. First there is a bunch of spikes on this puppy. What I like is that there is a spike in the center of each spike for increased stabilization. (I think this is where the name came from.LOL) In addition to that is a block in the insole that helps to prevent foot collapse on the turn and on the torque. I get torqued which was obvious in my first review but I also torque a lot on my golf swing. I frequently have my foot slip with the resultant bad shot. (That’s my story and I am sticking to it.) This little block seemed to have a measurable impact on foot slipping. As a bonus the shoes were really, really comfortable.
I am not a shoe tester but I am a golfer. This shoe exceeded my expectations and I really liked it. Etonic you have changed my mind and I will be recommending your shoes here and to the duffers I hang out with.
