    toe spikes?

    are toe spikes a significant factor if absent in a shoe that works for me? would I use them (on average) once per season?

    thanks in advance

    If the shoe fits, wear it. You'll do just fine without toe spikes. I wouldn't purchase new shoes just to get the spikes, unless you need new shoes for other reasons.

    go out and have fun.

    It depends on your courses. Around here, muddy run-ups are a very common feature. Other places, maybe not.

    You can always just screw a couple bolts in to keep the muck from fouling the threads ,
    until you need to screw the cleats in..

    Soccer shoe cleats work too, doesn't have to be the sharp steel ones .
