"Do you know your last swing thought before impact? Do you even want to know your last swing thought? Lacking a supervising adult anywhere within my psyche, “swing thought” for me might as well be “Beer Pong” or “LOOK, a squirrel!” (My pals have resorted to screaming “heel down” as I take the club back otherwise I end up like a ballerina en pointe. I can’t seem to remember such a complex matter on my own.)
ShoeTips might be my ticket, one of those amazingly basic ideas that until recently no one thought to invent and, more importantly, for which to secure the USGA’s blessing."
"If you’re like most of us, your refrigerator doors and personal devices are full of reminder notes. Now you can bring that thinking to the golf course with clip-on shoe notes that remind you of what you’d like to accomplish with your swing, such as tempo, balance or finishing. The USGA says ShoeTips are legal, so … swing away."
"ShoeTips is a revolutionary new swing thought reminder system designed to help golfers of all skill levels master their mental game while they play. ShoeTips helps golfers calm their minds and concentrate on the one or two thoughts they want to remember as they prepare to swing—boosting their confidence and enjoyment, and lowering their scores.
The reminders will be in full view on your shoes as you address the ball. To use them on your golf bag instead, simply insert the base clips through the slots on our enclosed BagTag, either way ShoeTips is 'Permitted under the Rules of Golf.' "
"Golf-minded business people continue to come up with inventions and creations that make great golf gifts and dumb golf gifts. The possibilities for golf gadgets, golf outfits and golf equipment seem as endless as a round of golf on that day when you can’t sink a putt.
When ShoeTips Golf debuted their neat little mindfulness messaging system at the PGA Expo in January, co-founder Ellen Rudolph noticed something interesting.
“Women, who tend to be more attuned to the concept of mindfulness than men, responded enthusiastically,” she said."
"Do you think too much on a golf course? I do. It's only natural. As golfers, we are exposed to so many swing thoughts through TV, videos, social media and even our playing partners.
Now I found a product that helps me narrow my swing thoughts down to a pair of things each time I walk onto the first tee. If you haven't tried ShoeTips, you should! I like them."
"ShoeTips Now Permitted Under The Rules of Golf"
"You may recall that we featured ShoeTips in our Product Showcase earlier this year, but they contacted us recently with some very exciting news that we felt we needed to share with you. “We’re very excited to announce the new USGA Equipment Standards decision stating that our newly designed base clips are Permitted under the Rules of Golf,” said Steve Lewis, Founder & CEO of ShoeTips. “Now you can wear ShoeTips on your shoes or display it on the BagTag for any round—whether you’re an amateur or a pro”. "
From Eastern Tennessee Golf Guide:
“ShoeTips helps golfers calm their minds and concentrate on the one or two thoughts they want to remember as they prepare to swing—boosting their confidence and enjoyment, and lowering their scores. ShoeTips is the perfect gift for golfers of all ages and abilities.”

"How many of you golfers out there have ten different things running through your mind at set up before each shot? …How can we remember to concentrate on just the really important ones…? …ShoeTips…could just be what we need to stay focused before each shot.
…The ShoeTips were installed on my shoes and off I went to give them a try. I really was more focused on what I wanted to remember, instead of everything else running around in my head."
“It’s like a visual voice to back up your inner one. Who cares if your buddies give you a ration for putting Shoe Tips into action — you’ll pay them back by taking their money at the end of the round, and writing down some of your lowest scores yet.”
"Using ShoeTips is easy. Before you play, select two swing thoughts you want to remember from the 18 provided. Insert the labels securely into the two base clips and slide the clips easily, and snugly, over your shoelaces. The reminders will be in full view on your shoes as you address the ball. Now …you can remember what you had wanted to concentrate on and clear your mind of the thoughts that interfere with making a good shot.”
