Your Shoe Guide (June) in­cluded sev­eral mod­els which are not found at lo­cal golf retail out­lets, and can only be bought through web­sites. Our golf shops seem to be locked into selling the same old brands which we have had for­ever, and not recog­nis­ing the emerg­ing new ones. Con­sumers are los­ing out as a re­sult of these “obli­ga­tions.” I read on the My Golf Spy web­site that some of the best golf shoes to­day come from an Amer­i­can com­pany called Skech­ers, which have over­taken Adi­das in sales in the US. And yet you can’t buy a pair in a lo­cal shop. Skech­ers might not be as stylish as some mod­els, but they are rated best for sta­bil­ity, com­fort and fit, and that’s what you want most from a golf shoe. Plus, they’re cheaper than the big brands. Please im­port them. James By­wa­ter, email
