The Complete Golf Shoe Buyer's Guide 

With more and more companies producing more and more varieties of golf shoes, it has become increasingly difficult to choose which ones to buy. Not too long ago, most of them were almost the same, both in terms of looks and performance. These days, you can choose from classic style shoes to sneakers to street shoes and many more. At Golf Shoes Info, we’ve created a golf shoe buyer's guide, making it just a bit easier to choose which ones to buy. Through our reviews, comparisons, and top 10 lists, we hope your decision process will be that much easier. By breaking golf shoes down into categories and then reviewing and comparing them, it should help answer the all important questions of: Which golf shoes should I buy? And: What are the best golf shoes?

Which Style Golf Shoe Should I Get?

There are basically 4 types of golf shoes on the market:


Casual/retro/street - These "street" style shoes look stylish and are often comfortable as well. You'll find that your feet have more room in these shoes than other styles. They are spikeless golf shoes, which means they don't have the classic style soft spikes, but have traction lugs/nubs instead. While some insist their performance isn't up to par with other styles of shoes, the fact that a number of PGA Tour players opt for them is a strong indication that they perform as required. These shoes are great because you can wear them to work and then straight onto the golf course. 

Strengths: Stylish. Can wear on and off the golf course. Comfortable

Weaknesses: May lack stability and support. Not the best for walking

Recommended for: The casual golfer who wants a stylish shoe they can wear everywhere. You don't mind riding in a cart, but still require comfort and performance.

Classic - These are the original style golf shoes. When most people think of golf shoes, these are what come to mind. Most of them have leather uppers with spiked traction, though there are a few spikeless ones on the market as well. Although they may look classic, the interiors boast the latest cushion and supportive technology. They look great with long pants and add a classy look to any outfit. You can usually expect to pay a bit more for classic golf shoes.

Strenghts: Classy and stylish. Good support and traction. Highly waterproof

Weaknesses: Usually higher in price. Heavier than other styles

Recommended for: Golfers who don't mind paying more for a classic look while maintaining support and traction. You don't mind paying the extra price.  Perhaps better for cart golf, but you'll have no problem walking with them also.

Performance - These golf shoes look sportier than classic designs, while maintaining that unique "golf shoe" look. They focus on performance, which means they consistently rank high in stability, support and traction. You'll find a more snug fit with these shoes, but by no means a sacrifice in comfort. They look great with all types of attire, and are capable of tackling the toughest terrains. Traction is usually spiked, though there are plenty of spikeless as well. Prices for these shoes vary greatly.

Strengths: Sleek design. Good support and traction. Most quite waterproof. Lightweight. Great all around shoe

Weaknesses: Not many! 

Recommended for: Those in need of an all around golf shoe that can tackle all types of terrain. You enjoy walking the course, but still require a high level of support and stability.

PUMA PROADAPT Delta Performance Golf Shoe

Trainer/Sport - These golf shoes are more reminiscent of athletic trainers than golf shoes. They're designed for comfort, but still maintain solid traction, which is pretty much evenly divided between spiked and spikeless. These shoes are also a snug fit, but breathe the best of any shoe. They look best with shorts, and can be found at bargain prices. They usually aren't as stable and supportive as classic and performance shoes, but are lightweight golf shoes and great for hot days.

Strengths: Very breathable. Comfortable. Flexible. Good for walking. Lightweight

Weaknesses: Usually not as waterproof as other styles. May lack stability and support. May not look good with long pants

Recommended for: Golfers who enjoy walking the course. You enjoy playing on hot days, and require a breathable shoe. You care more about comfort than anything else.

Which Golf Shoe Brands Are The Best?

This question is like choosing your favorite child. It's literally impossible to answer. Nobody has the same feet as you. Nobody has the same swing or gait as you. And nobody has the same aethetic tastes as you. It is therefore not only impossible, but unfair to label any one brand the best. Luckily, the golf shoe market is saturated with hundreds of different models to choose from. Our aim is to help you sift through these until you have your perfect match.

Tommy Fleetwood was the latest winner on the DP World Tour with victory at the Dubai Invitational, which was held at Dubai Creek Resort in Dubai, UAE. He finished strong with birdie, birdie wearing the Nike Tiger Woods '13. This is definitely one of the most popular and recognizable of the TW Nike golf shoes. Ladies and gentlemen, here are Tommy Fleetwood's golf shoes:

We love how Skechers isn't afraid to think outside of the box when it comes to shoe design. They always focus on comfort and practicality, which are two things you get with the Skechers GO GOLF Elite 5 - Slip In. It actually looks pretty cool too, which we weren't necessarily expecting. We don't usually associate the term "slip-in" with style. It's not just words either, the slip-in aspect of this Skechers golf shoe actually works, providing a really easy on/off. Then there's the dial/twist fit system, which is always nice not having to deal with laces. Another aspect of the GO GOLF Elite 5 Slip In we really like is the traction system. The GRIPFLEX outsole is a hybrid of spiked and spikeless traction, which creates amazing grip on the course without sacrificing comfort when walking on other surfaces off the course. The Skechers Elite 5 Slip In is wearable year-round, as it is reasonably breathable and waterproof. We recommend this golf shoe for those who want something easy to wear without sacrificing performance.

As with most Stuburt golf shoes, the first thing we noticed about the ACE CASUAL was the price tag. At well under $100, the Stuburt ACE CASUAL Hybrid Golf Shoe is one of the better deals out there, especially if you're looking for casual style. While we're on the topic of style, let's just say that as far as aesthetics go, this is right up there with the best looking Stuburt golf shoes. The hybrid nature of the ACE CASUAL allows it to be worn just about anywhere on and off the course. Of course, with this hybrid design comes some minor performance deficiencies. Not serious ones, but just enough to be noticeable. For instance, the hybrid outsole is great for versatility, but doesn't grip all that great during the swing, especially in wet conditions. Since it's relatively waterproof and quite breathable, the ACE CASUAL can be worn pretty much year-round. We recommend it for those who appreciate style and versatility, and who don't want to have to carry around an extra pair of shoes when they go to play golf.

As you may have guessed, the New Balance 997 Spikeless is pretty much identical to the original NB 997, except it has a spikeless traction system instead of spiked. This Ndurance traction system is absolutely fantastic, with the spikeless version gripping almost as well as the spiked version, with the added benefit of being more versatile on all types of surfaces. What really stuck out about the New Balance 997 SL Golf Shoe was just how cool it looks. It has that hint of retro, which looks awesome. And it's not just all about looks. The NB 997 SL is really comfortable. We love the comfort and responsiveness of the Abzorb midsole, which makes walking the course more than enjoyable. Although it may get a bit warm in hot conditions, the 997 SL does well year-round, even in really wet conditions. While not the most supportive golf shoe out there, the New Balance 997 SL is still pretty solid and gets the job done. We recommend this golf shoe for those who like the retro sneaker vibe along with high comfort and traction.

New Balance 997 SL Golf Shoe

As you may have guessed, the G/FORE MG4+ Mid-Top golf shoe comes with just about the same technology and materials as the original MG4+. The big difference here is obviously that the Mid-Top is, well, a mid-top, whereas the original isn't. In our opinion, this adds style points. As far as performance is concerned, they're about the same. We thought these G/FORE MG4 Plus versions would basically be the same shoe as the MG4.1, just more waterproof, but we were wrong! Ok, so admittedly some of the technology, such as the cushioning, is the same, but there are plenty of differences (for the better). We love how the MG4+ Mid-Top can be worn year-round, not really overheating on hot days, while providing plenty of waterproofing on wet days. In our opinion, the traction system has been improved since the MG4.1, and grips better during the swing while still remaining flexible and comfortable for walking off the course. While the support isn't great, it definitely does the job, especially with the added heel cup. The most important thing to remember about the MG4+ Mid-Top is that it was designed with versatility in mind, meaning you can go straight from the street to the course without having to change shoes, all the while looking really trendy!

GFORE MG4+ Mid-Top Golf Shoe

The PAYNTR X 004 RS Golf Shoe offers some really cool innovative technology, which undoubtedly helps both in terms of comfort and support. First of all, the X 004 RS comes with a blister-free warranty in the heel area. Their 3D molded PMX heel-counter hugs the back of the foot in such a way that it eliminates blisters. Then there's the footbed, which won't compress more than 5% for the life of the shoe. It's also removable, which adds more fit options. Our favorite feature of the PAYNTR X 004 RS is its innovative anti-perspiration technology, which allows sweat to escape through the midsole and outsole. This awesome technology makes the X 004 pretty ideal for year-round play, except for perhaps really wet and cold conditions. Aside from all this comfort and support, there's also the traction system, which ensures ultimate ground contact no matter the lie. This is our favorite PAYNTR golf shoe, which we recommend to those who value innovative technology that no doubt helps on the course in terms of energy saving and comfort.

PAYNTR X 004 RS Golf Shoe

The TRUE linkswear LUX Hybrid is easily one of our favorite TRUE linkswear golf shoes. We really love it. Starting with its style. The LUX Hybrid simply looks fantastic. It's such a cool a blend of casual/leisure and sport styles. Which of course means you can wear it everywhere, off the course included since its traction system is also versatile. TRUE golf shoes are always comfortable, and the LUX Hybrid is no exception. As we just said, you can, and will want to, wear it all day. Not only can you wear it all day, but you can also wear it every day since it has an amazing combo of breathability and waterproofing. Compared with other TRUE models, we feel that the LUX Hybrid has a bit more stability in the upper, most likely due to the leather saddle. While it is no doubt pricey, you get high quality class with the TRUE LUX Hybrid.

TRUE linkswear LUX Hybrid Golf Shoe

The PUMA FUSION Classic Spikeless Golf Shoe is very similar to its predecessor, the PUMA Original G. They share similarities both in terms of aesthetics and performance. The biggest noticeable difference is that the FUSION Classic utilizes FUSIONFOAM technology in the midsole, which adds more energy return and overall comfort. On the negative side, this FUSION Classic version is only water-resistant, whereas the Original G had a one year waterproof guarantee. In a nutshell, the PUMA FUSION Classic golf shoe is pretty awesome. Okay, so it doesn't perform among the top golf shoes, but it beats most in terms of style. Let's face it, most people buying this shoe are doing it for fashion. And in this regard, it doesn't disappoint. This is not to say that its performance is disappointing, it's just simply average. It's really clever how they hid the golf-specific traction in the outsole, which means that from the top and side view, you wouldn't be able to distinguish this model from the original classic model. All in all, the FUSION Classic is a hip, stylish golf shoe that holds its own on the course.

PUMA FUSION Classic Golf Shoe

It's always a good time reviewing Jordan golf shoes, and the Jordan XII G is no exception. As with all Jordan golf shoes, what stands out immediately is its style. The classic aesthetics of the Jordan 12 G are among the most famous within the brand, which just oozes classic style. Of course it's comfortable as well. Whether you're walking or riding, the Jordan XII G will definitely keep you comfortable on the course. Performance-wise, our favorite aspect of the Jordan 12 G is its traction system. The seven removable spikes work together with the permanent traction lugs and ridges to create amazing grip on the course. As far as other performance features are concerned, we feel that the Jordan 12 G is adequate, but doesn't offer anything outstanding. We recommend this Jordan golf shoe for the style-conscious, Jordan brand lovers who demand dependable grip and comfort.

Jordan XII G Golf Shoe

As we've grown accustomed to, this Royal Albartross golf shoe is pure class. The RA Northcote oozes style and quality. Let's start with the upper, which is made of premium Italian Nappa leather. It just feels completely different from other leather and microfibers. Along with that incredibly soft feeling, this luxury leather affords the highest quality, which basically means this shoe will last for a long, long time. Which is good, because it certainly isn't cheap. In our honest opinion, while you do get the upmost luxury and quality with the Northcote, we do feel that there are plenty of other similar golf shoes out there that are a better deal. That being said, most patrons who can afford this golf shoe aren't overly concerned with the price tag, concerning themselves rather with the essence of casual class. The overall golf-specific performance of the Northcote isn't anything outstanding, but it for sure gets the job done.

Royal Albartross Northcote Golf Shoe

We've always appreciated how FootJoy offers such an array of golf shoes, from some of the cheapest out there to some of the most expensive. We mostly consider their pricing to be fair, basically getting what you pay for. This is the case with the FootJoy eComfort. It's a great shoe for mid to high handicappers who don't demand too much in the way of performance. That being said, we were pleasantly surprised by how effective the traction system is. As far as grip is concerned, the Duramax outsole with Pulsar cleats can match up against any. The synthetic upper does a pretty good job of keeping your feet dry, but isn't the most breathable. We therefore recommend the eComfort for mild to cool/cold conditions. All this being said, it's hard to be critical of a golf shoe for well under $100.

FootJoy eComfort Golf Shoe

Once again, ECCO has come out with a high-quality, durable golf shoe. This time it's the GOLF BIOM TOUR LACE golf shoe. ECCO uses top-notch materials in their shoes, which is usually our favorite aspect of any golf shoe from this brand. The quality leather and synthetic upper looks and feels great, all while keeping your feet dry in wet conditions. It isn't overly hot in summer conditions either, which makes the BIOM TOUR LACE great for year-round play. You'll have no problem walking the course in this ECCO golf shoe, as the comfort level is really high. We love how the insole is removable and washable, which gives extra fit options. The spiked outsole in the BIOM TOUR LACE utilizes 8 Pivix spikes combined with permanent traction ridges, which as a whole creates an amazing traction system. We recommend the ECCO BIOM TOUR LACE for those who desire high-quality looks and feels along with durability.


The Callaway Coronado V3 Spiked Golf Shoe is very similar to its predecessor, the Coronado V2. Much of the technology and even aesthetics remain the same, with a few improvements. This is a feat in itself since the Coronado V2 was already an amazing golf shoe. The main difference we noticed was that the Coronado V3 felt a bit more stable than the V2. In fact, this is one of the most, if not the most, stable golf shoe that Callaway offers. Add an amazing spiked traction system to the mix and you have yourself one fantastic performance golf shoe. Another standout feature of the Coronado V3 is its comfort and spacious feeling. It gives your feet plenty of room while simultaneously providing that stable lateral feeling. Its mesh upper allows for pretty decent breathability in hot conditions, while keeping your feet completely dry in harsh conditions. We recommend the Coronado V3 for the low handicap golfer who demands nothing but the best in golf shoe technology.

We've become accustomed to OluKai delivering trendy, sporty yet casual golf shoes, and weren't disappointed with the Ka'anapali. This sport/casual golf shoe encompasses everything that Olukai is known for. Without a doubt, the biggest strength of this spikeless golf shoe is its comfort and versatility. Oh, and we should probably mention style as well. The mesh upper and amazing footbed offer incredible walking comfort along with breathability. This style and comfort combine with the spikeless outsole to create a golf shoe that is amazingly versatile. It literally looks great in every casual setting imaginable. As far as golf-specific performance is concerned, the Ka'anapali is pretty solid. It doesn't offer anything outstanding, but definitely does the job. The spikeless outsole is quite grippy considering it was designed with verstatility in mind, and the outer shell in the upper adds a bit of structure and support. We recommend the OluKai Ka'anapali for those in need of a casual, trendy and comfortable summer shoe that will last a long time.

OluKai Ka'anapali Golf Shoe

The ASICS GEL-KAYANO ACE BOA golf shoe definitely impressed us. We were hoping it would be similar to the other GEL-ACE models, and were not disappointed. This GEL-KAYANO ACE BOA edition features everything the original GEL-KAYANO ACE has, but with an added BOA fastening system that allows for micro-adjustments and thus a more precision fit. Whether or not this is worth the extra $20 is highly subjective. Without a doubt, the standout feature of the GEL-KAYANO ACE BOA is its comfort. The cushioning is in all the right places, delivering one heck of a walking experience. It provides the perfect balance of shock absorption and rebound, which can save quite a bit of energy during a round. Then there is the support and traction. We love how the TPU heel cradle keeps your foot locked in, which feels especially great during the swing. The spikeless outsole provides all the grip you'd ever need, while still feeling great when walking. Due to its breathable nature and decent waterproofing, the GEL-KAYANO ACE BOA is a great golf shoe for year-round play. We recommend this spikeless ASICS golf shoe for those who place an emphasis on top-of-the-line comfort and support.


We've been a fan of every Johnston & Murphy golf shoe we've tried so far, and the XC4 H3-Luxe Hybrid is no exception. The golf-specific technology in this performance golf shoe is really incredible, especially in terms of comfort. This is one of our favorite aspects of the XC4 H3-Luxe Hybrid. The removable footbed and EVA midsole combine to create one of the most comfortable golf shoes out there. Another feature of this golf shoe that we're in love with is the spikeless traction system. It is hands down one of the grippiest spikeless golf shoes on the market. The XC4 H3-Luxe Hybrid is solidly waterproof too, which means it can be worn year-round, because the J&M Smart Degree Technology keeps it from overheating in the summer. While it's not cheap, the XC4 H3-Luxe Hybrid offers some of the best comfort and traction out there, with high-quality, durable materials as well.

Johnston & Murphy XC4 H3-Luxe Hybrid

The adidas MC80 spikeless golf shoe is as unique as it is innovative. It's a hybrid of classic and casual designs, which blend beautifully to create one of the coolest-looking golf shoes adidas offers. This awesome style is by far our favorite feature of the MC80. Next on our list of positives is the comfort on offer. We've always loved BOOST cushioning technology, with its high level of comfort and rebound, it's hard not to enjoy a long round on the course. The TPU traction system is pretty solid, and provides a nice blend of walking comfort and grip. As far as golf-specific performance is concerned, the MC80 doesn't really have any faults. Our biggest complaint about this adidas golf shoe is that it isn't the most breathable, yet isn't really waterproof either. For a high-level golf shoe such as this, we were hoping for a bit more weather versatility. Nonetheless, we recommend the adidas MC80 golf shoe for those searching for something stylish and a bit different, that offers solid overall performance.

adidas MC80 Spikeless Golf Shoe

The UA Charged Curry spikeless golf shoe is very similar to the UA Charged Phantom. In fact, aside from minor aesthetic differences, the technologies in both are almost identical. However, a big difference is that while the Charged Phantom is water-resistant, the Charged Curry is not. This obviously limits year-round wearability, making it more of a summer golf shoe. With Under Armour we expect good things, but the UA Charged Curry spikeless golf shoe went beyond expectations. Perhaps the aspect of this shoe that caught us off guard the most is its support. We always lower our expectations regarding support when it comes to knit and mesh golf shoes. They usually just don't provide the stability/support that other golf shoes do. However, the knit upper in the Charged Curry felt really stable. In addition, the Rotational Resistance traction system provides some of the best traction you're going to find on a spikeless golf shoe. Because of its spikeless nature, the Charged Curry feels pretty good when worn off the course as well. You'll be hard-pressed to find a more comfortable and stable knit golf shoe than this one.

Under Armour Charged Curry Spikeless Golf Shoe

The Skechers GO GOLF Elite 5 - GF is our favorite Skechers golf shoe! Not only for its amazing performance, but also for how great of a bargain it is. We'll start with perhaps our favorite aspect of the shoe, which is its comfort. Customer reviews are full of praise for just how comfortable it is. The insole and midsole are formed in such a way that the Elite 5 is comfortable for all different types of feet and their unique demands. Then there's the traction system, which is really great for on-course performance. In fact, it's one of the best permanent, spikeless traction systems we've seen. Just be careful when walking on surfaces off the course as it can be a little bit slippery. All of this incredible performance comes in at just over $100, which makes it one of the best deals out there. We recommend the GO GOLF Elite 5 - GF for all levels of golfers who need high performance and comfort at a very affordable price.

Skechers GO GOLF Elite 5 - GF Golf Shoe

The PUMA ALPHACAT NITRO is basically a slightly improved version of the original PROADAPT ALPHACAT. Aside from aesthetic differences, we felt the biggest change between the two was that the NITRO feels just a bit more supportive and responsive. This is most likely due to the NITRO midsole, which is the latest, most innovative midsole cushioning PUMA has to offer. As with the original ALPHACAT, there are two aspects of this golf shoe that we love. One of these is its excellent combination of breathability and waterproofing. It won't overheat on hot days, and will keep your feet dry on rainy days. The other aspect we love about the ALPHACAT NITRO is its traction system. They placed the various traction lugs and ridges in just the right places and angles, creating a feeling of being locked to the ground during the swing. We recommend the PUMA ALPHACAT NITRO for the mid-level golfer in search of year-round wearability and reliable performance.


Kudos to COLE HAAN for making a more sustainable, environmentally friendly golf shoe. The GrandPro Crew golf shoe is perhaps most well-known for its sustainable approach. This hasn't sacrificed performance or comfort either. In fact, one could argue that it enhances the shoe's aesthetic. Aside from style and the aforementioned, the GrandPro Crew is also breathable, which makes it great for summer rounds. Do keep in mind that it's not waterproof, which of course classifies it as a summer golf shoe. The traction system in the GrandPro Crew is solid. It's versatile enough to go anywhere, yet keeps you firmly planted to the ground during your swing. We weren't overly impressed with the overall support of the shoe, but it's sufficient. We recommend the GrandPro Crew for those who want to minimize their footprint, but who also want to look cool while doing so.

COLE HAAN GrandPro Crew Golf Shoe

The G/FORE G.112 P.U. Leather Golf Shoe is pretty cool. We like its hybrid mix of casual and athletic styles. This design not only looks amazing, but also allows the shoe to be worn on and off the course. Versatility such as this goes a long way with those who want to keep things simple by not lugging around an extra pair of golf shoes. As with all G/FORE golf shoes, with the G.112 P.U. you get high quality style. However, there is something else you get with this golf shoe that we weren't necessarily expecting; awesome support. It's a combination of the low drop midsole, lateral wrap and TPU shank. These features offer some of the best support and stability that you're going to find in a G/FORE golf shoe. While certainly not the cheapest golf shoe out there, the G/FORE G.112. P.U. does provide plenty of style and pretty good performance.

We say this all the time when it comes to Duca golf shoes, but we'll say it again; they've done it yet again! This time with the Duca del Cosma Regent golf shoe. Duca has brilliantly combined luxury fashion with golf-specific demands. This feat isn't as easy to accomplish as Duca makes it look, so kudos to them. The Regent certainly isn't for those on a tight budget, but for those who don't mind paying a pretty penny for the upmost in luxury and style, then this could be a great option. While the Regent no doubt functions on the golf course moderately well, it just can't compete with the top spikeless golf shoes in terms of golf-specific performance. However, it does sit right at the top of the list of premium, luxury golf shoes. With this comes the added benefits of durability comfort. The Regent certainly isn't an all-weather golf shoe, so is perhaps best suited for the fall and autumn.

Duca del Cosma Regent Golf Shoe

Made from sustainable materials, the Nike Victory Pro 3 golf shoe is a great option for mid-level golfers who need something reliable, but without all the bells and whistles that some more advanced golfers need/desire. Our favorite aspect of this Nike golf shoe is the traction system. The permanent traction ridges work well with the strategically placed removable spikes, which allows for complete confidence during the swing that you won't slip. The Victory Pro 3 is quite comfortable, and offers fairly decent support. However, we do find that the synthetic leather upper isn't the most breathable on hot days. It's also not really waterproof, which limits when it can be worn. The Victory Pro 3 doesn't really excite us like some  other Nike golf shoes do, but it gets the job done and is a great option for those who want something no-nonsense, durable and dependable.

Nike Victory Pro 3 Golf Shoe

The NB Brighton Golf Shoe is just really solid. It fits into the company's mold of no nonsense, stable, durable and reliable golf shoes. It's not necessarily flashy, but the Brighton golf shoe gets the job done. And comfortably, we might add. The CUSH+ insole and DynaSoft midsole combine nicely to provide one heck of a comfortable walk on the golf course. This comfortable walk can happen anytime of the year as well, since the Brighton is both waterproof and reasonably breathable. It doesn't have the high-level support that some other NB golf shoes have, but holds its own in the mid-level category. One of the best features of the Brighton is the traction system. We've always loved NDurance outsoles, especially when 5 FastTwist Pulsar spikes are thrown in. With this you have grip that won't let you down in any conditions. We recommend the New Balance Brighton for mid-level golfers who demand comfort, great traction and dependability.

New Balance Brighton Golf Shoe

It was pretty much love at first sight when it comes to Chevalier golf shoes. We've always had a soft spot for classic style golf shoes, and these just really hit the spot. However, we couldn't base our review on looks alone, so we dove deeper into the product. What we found actually surprised us a bit. We were expecting high quality, handmade golf shoes that performed average at best. However, we weren't expecting the solid overall performance they provide, particularly in terms of comfort and support/stability. Lurking under the classic aesthetics are modern technologies such as an EVA midsole and a really responsive insole. This comfort combined with a spikeless outsole actually makes Chevalier golf shoes quite good for walking. When it comes to classic style golf shoes, they actually don't get much more comfortable than this. For a handmade, premium quality golf shoe such as this, we were expecting something well over $200, so we find the price very reasonable indeed. We recommend Chevalier golf shoes for those who place an emphasis on style and quality.

G/FORE G.112 P.U. Leather Golf Shoe

The FootJoy Fuel Sport, as you may have guessed, is very similar to the original FJ Fuel. The Fuel Sport, however, is mesh instead of synthetic leather. Without sacrificing much waterproofing at all, this mesh upper adds quite a bit more breathability. This breathable, waterproof combination isn't easy to find, so well done to FJ for getting it done. The FootJoy Fuel Sport, in our opinion, is a perfect golf shoe for beginner to intermediate players. While it is certainly suitable for golfers of all abilities and swing speeds, we think it fits the aforementioned demographic the best. We say this because it's a really solid, all-around golf shoe that doesn't feature anything outstanding performance-wise, yet doesn't lack at all in any category. The FJ Fuel Sport, as previously mentioned, can also be worn year-round, which is great for those who don't want to buy shoes for varying weather conditions. The outsole feels great when walking and grips really well too, with new Stability Bridge adding that extra bit of lateral stability. Perhaps our favorite aspect of this shoe is its durability, which will without a doubt attract those who want a pair of golf shoes to last at least a couple seasons. If you're in need of a durable, all-around solid golf shoe that won't break the bank, the FJ Fuel Sport is a great option.

We're always suckers for classic, elegant golf shoes. And these are the perfect adjectives for the ECCO GOLF CLASSIC HYBRID. It really is a thing of beauty. The high-quality leather upper looks and feels absolutely amazing. Do keep in mind that it isn't fully waterproof, but is water-repellent enough to keep your feet dry in moderately wet conditions. What also struck us was how comfortable the GOLF CLASSIC HYBRID is. The direct injection midsole and removable insole offer a really comfortable round, even when walking. The spikeless outsole is a cool touch because it makes the shoe more versatile. Since it looks so stylish and classy, the CLASSIC HYBRID can definitely be worn on occasions off the course. We'd rate the overall performance of the shoe as moderate, meaning it holds its own on the course, but doesn't offer anything that stands out. However, in terms of aesthetics, the ECCO GOLF CLASSIC HYBRID definitely stands out.


The TRUE linkswear OG Tour is quite similar to the TRUE OG in its overall design and aesthetics, but boasts some nice upgrades. We like how TRUE stuck with what they're known for; wide toe-box golf shoes with zero-drop. This has been quite unique to TRUE golf shoes, and fans of this style will be pleased that they continue to offer this in upgraded models. While it's not for everyone, this TRUE design offers plenty of room and stability. The wide toe box allows for an increased surface area for ground contact, which is always good for increased traction. The zero drop sole increases feel by bringing you closer to the ground and the surface that you're standing on. As we said, the main difference between the OG Tour and the OG is that the upper in the OG Tour is slightly higher grade leather, which not only looks amazing, but is also quite supple and durable. The cowhide heel cup in the OG Tour also adds that extra bit of support by reducing heel slippage.

TRUE linkswear OG Tour Golf Shoe

Callaway has done it again! We've always been a fan of Callaway golf shoes, namely for their high-level performance at very affordable prices. The Callaway Monterey SL is no different. For this price, at just over $100, you probably won't find anything that performs better. First of all, it's really comfortable. The DX midsole and PLUSfoam midsole combine to create a really enjoyable walking experience. The Monterey SL is relatively breathable and has solid waterproofing, which means it's great year-round (although we recommend it more for cooler days). A concern one always has with spikeless traction is how well it grips in wet conditions. We can confidently say that the Dura-Rubber outsole on the Monterey SL won't let you down. It keeps you planted to the ground while simultaneously allowing for a very comfortable walk. We recommend the Callaway Monterey Spikeless golf shoe for those who need something comfortable and stable, yet won't break the bank.

Callaway Monterey SL Golf Shoe

The Nike Air Zoom Victory Tour 3 looks and feels very similar to the Air Zoom Victory Tour 2. Aside from a slightly upgraded traction system, everything else remains almost the same. They added separate traction systems for the forefoot and lateral/heel areas, which meets the specific demand of each zone. This improves what was already great traction, meaning you don't have to worry at all about slippage on the course. The Nike Air Zoom Victory Tour 3 Golf Shoe is one of the best performing Nike golf shoes! While it may not be the most affordable golf shoe, it certainly packs innovative technology which undoubtedly enhances the playing experience. While the shoe as a whole is mightily impressive, the aspect that stands out the most is its cushioning. Nike continues to come out with cutting-edge cushioning technologies, this time with the Zoom Air unit and the React Foam. Aside from the obvious benefit of amazing comfort, this technology also offers noticeable rebound, which enhances energy return and also feels better when walking. Because of this, the Air Zoom Victory Tour 3 is great for walking the course year-round, in all conditions. The full-grain leather upper is perfectly waterproof while still not overheating in hot conditions, and the traction system will no-doubt boost the confidence of even the highest swing speeds. We recommend the Nike Air Zoom Victory Tour 3 for the advanced golfer who demands nothing but the best performance and comfort.
