Here you'll find all the latest, juiciest news and gossip...all that relates to golf shoes, that is.
The Most Expensive Golf Shoes?
Ok, so it's slightly weird that nobody really knows about these shoes, yet they're perhaps the most expensive out there. Ladies and gentlemen, this is the ParWest Augusta golf shoe. The prices vary greatly, but if you're looking to spin heads in the clubhouse, we recommend the crocodile leather ones. At a mere $3200, this shoe can be yours. Each pair of shoes is custom built, so they're bound to be comfy.
This new company "Golfkicks" has come up with quite the innovative idea. It allows you to basically change any of your shoes to golf shoes. You buy the kit, which involves screwing spikes into the outsole of your shoe of choice, and you're ready to golf! Keep in mind this is a very new thing, and we haven't really heard any feedback. For starters, we're very interested to see how durable the spikes are and whether or not they actually stay in place. Time will tell!
Brooks Koepka and Bo Jackson's Custom Nike Golf Shoes
Brooks Koepka and Bo Jackson recently played together at the BMW Championship Pro-am, and were rocking some pretty sweet custom kicks. Bo had "Bo Knows" on his, while Brooks had "Brooks Knows" on his Nike Tour Premieres.
Brooks Koepka's Off-White x Nike Air Max 90s
Brooks Koepka has been making a lot of headlines lately. Perhaps it's because he's the best player in the world. And he just posed nude for ESPN. All this aside, you may have noticed that his golf shoes have been attracting quite a bit of attention. Not only did he sport the new and not-yet-released Off-White x Nike Air Max 90s at the Tour Championship, but he went ahead and left the tag on as well. For most mere mortals, this would seem a bit distracting. But not for Brooks.
C.T. Pan's Custom Nikes
C.T. Pan got his maiden PGA Tour victory at the RBC Heritage last April. Along with earning tons of money for his win, C.T. is also getting a litle perk from his sponsor, Nike.

Justin Thomas's "Bahamas Strong" Golf Shoes
The Bahamas is a place close to Justin Thomas's heart, with a house and friends there he considers it his second home. As a way of supporting the peole after the devastating hurricane, he's wearing a custom pair of FootJoy ICONs, dubbed "Bahamas Strong". These words wrap around the back of the shoe in white lettering contrasted by a light blue background. He'll wear these cool kicks for the next few weeks, and is also donating $1000 for every birdie he makes for the rest of the year.

PUMA IGNITE NXT President's Cup Edition
You may have noticed Ernie Els's golf shoes at the President's Cup a couple weeks ago.

This special edition features a gold speckled midsole, along with a gold outsole and heel sides. At $140, it's only slightly more expensive than the original IGNITE NXT.
Brooks Koepka's New Nikes. Air Zoom Infinity Tour
The idea for the Nike Air Zoom Infinity Tour spawned from Brooks Koekpa's desire for a golf shoe that can also be used for running. Nike then got to work utilizing technology from their various sport shoes to create this hybrid golf shoe. They emphasize that although it looks like a running shoe and shares much of the same technology, the Air Zoom Infinity Tour isn't meant for long runs. Instead, this technology further increases your comfort on the course. It looks pretty cool, and will be available for purchase April 1st.
Jon Rahm's Custom Adidas CodeChaos Boa Golf Shoes
As an ASU graduate and Arizona resident, Jon Rahm always looks forward to the Waste Management Phoenix Open. This week he has been sporting an awesome customized pair of Adidas CodeChaos Boa shoes, which honor fallen hero and fellow ASU alum Pat Tillman. For those not aware of Pat, he gave up his pro NFL career to go and fight in the military for his country after the September 11 attacks, and tragically died in Afghanistan 2 years later.
Air Jordan 4 and Air Jordan 5 Golf Shoes
Nothing excites PGA pro Pat Perez like a new pair of Nike Air Jordans. As you'd expect, he's one of the lucky few that gets a taste of Air Jordans long before they're released to the public. He recently sent out tantilizing tweets of his new par of Air Jordan 4 and Air Jordan 5 golf shoes. Word on the street is that Air Jordan 5s might be released mid February, so be on the lookout.
Justin Thomas's Kobe Bryant FootJoy ICON Blacks
Justin Thomas always admired Kobe Bryant, and has been showing his appreciation of Kobe's skills and work ethic since his passing a few weeks ago. Although he unfortunately missed the cut at the Genesis Invitational in Los Angeles, Justin was sporting some awesome custom FootJoy ICON Black golf shoes that paid tribute to Kobe. These shoes were done by a company called Nomad Customs.
Rory McIlroy Switches Back to Metal Spikes
You may have noticed a bit more noise lately when Rory walks on cart paths. That's because he has switched back to using metal cleats on his Nike Roshe G Tour golf shoes. He switched to soft spikes a number of years ago due to pain in his left knee, but has recently switched back to metal spikes simply because he felt he needed just that extra bit of stability that they provide. He and Tiger Woods are part of only a handful of PGA players using metal spikes.
PUMA IGNITE PROADAPT Palmer
One of the most anticipated tournaments of the year is upon us, the Arnold Palmer Invitational. As per usual, PUMA goes out of their way during this time to introduce custom Arnold Palmer apparel and accessories, including golf shoes. This time around , it's the IGNITE PROADAPT, Arnold Palmer edition. It features N1AP on the medial side, which was the tail number of Arnold's favorite plane. There are a few other subtle Palmer features, including Arnold's signature. You can purchase this shoe on PUMA/Cobra golf website for $250.

They are limited edition so get them while you can from the Adidas website!
TRUE linkswear Helps Out in Tough Times
We'd just like to give a huge shout out to TRUE linkswear for donating 10% of their sales to senior citizens through March 24th.

PUMA Steps Up for Autism
PUMA is stepping up in a huge way during National Autism Awareness Month. Throughout the entire month of April, PUMA will donate a portion of its sales of the IGNITE PWRADAPT Caged golf shoe to the Els for Autism Foundation. This is already our favorite golf shoe, and even more so now after this gesture!
Tiger Woods's New Golf Shoes
You may have noticed that Tiger Woods has been wearing new golf shoes lately. They were on full display at the recent Match II. Although there isn't a whole lot of information out there, we do know they are called "TW20", but we're not sure of the release date. The specific ones Tiger was wearing, with the Frank logo at the heel and a tiger pattern in the Nike swoosh, won't be available until next year.
Short for "Running-System-Golf", the new PUMA RS-G looks mighty similar to the brand's 1980s running shoes. This bulky sneaker trend is back, and the RS-G embodies this look. Designed with versatility in mind, this golf shoe feels great on and of the course. We can't wait to get our hands (or should we say feet) on a pair!
