Through online and real life research, we've compiled golf shoe reviews of just about every major shoe on the market. Some you've heard of, some you may not have. It's not easy staying on top of the hundreds of options, especially as models and even brands come and go. As you probably already know, Adidas, ECCO, FootJoy, Nike, PUMA, and more recently Under Armour, are at the forefront of the golf shoe industry. They have the most options and innovations, and for the most part, produce quality products. This is by no means saying that the other brands don't, but the aforementioned brands are well known and consistently prove their reputations.
Some brands are all about style, while others focus on comfort. Some brands are concerned with performance while others try to combine everything. The big brands have the means to produce every type of golf shoe. Adidas, ECCO, FootJoy, Nike and PUMA all offer trainer/sport, performance, and casual/street golf shoes. Others, such as New Balance, focus on trainer/sport golf shoes, which are lightweight, breathable and comfortable. Biion is pushing the boundaries with its multi-purpose shoe, while G/FORE and Duca del Cosma are all about luxury. PUMA combines the best of everything in their top-level golf shoes, and in our opinion, is slightly ahead of the competition in terms of aesthetics and performance.
So, what is the best golf shoe? While the debate never ends, and models come and go, the PUMA IGNITE PWRADAPT Caged tops the current list, followed closely by the FootJoy FURY and the PUMA TitanTour IGNITE.
