Pro Tip: Wear the Right Golf Shoes for Every Round

Pro Tip Golf Shoes for Every Occasion

Not too long ago, men’s golf shoes only came in a couple core designs, looks and feels. Golfers would then choose what golf shoes to wear based on only a few aspects and what the rest of their golf attire looked like for any given round. This brings us to Pro Tip #3 -- wear the right shoes for every round and every occasion.

Over the last few years, men’s golf shoes have entered a new era where golfers and sneakerheads are actually mingling in the same space. But traditional golfers needn’t worry -- at the same time, there are plenty of classics that satisfy players who still just want a pair that will last them a couple seasons.

If you’re a member or guest at an established country club with a very formal dress code, golfers should probably leave the Air Jordan’s in their hermetically sealed box at home. Instead, make sure you have a pair of classic, formal-looking golf shoes.

A modern saddle golf shoe like the FootJoy DryJoy Tour looks the part of a classic men’s shoe while giving a golfer all the comfort and performance of a modern men’s golf shoe.

A Casual Round Calls for Casual Shoes

Casual men’s golf shoes are generally spikeless, and no one put them on the map like Freddie Couples did when he wore his ECCO hybrid golf shoes during the 2010 Masters. It doesn’t hurt that Couples also explained how much better his notoriously bad back felt after wearing his ECCOs.

In the past decade, ECCO and other companies have expanded the market for casual golf shoes. Today, many look good on and off the course, like the ECCO Hybrid 3 GTX Spikeless Shoes that pair with most golf attire and allow a golfer to feel less ‘stuffy’ at the golf course.

As golf companies have been inspired more and more by ‘street’ style shoes, they have versions that look identical to fashionable sneakers. Now, if a golfer is also part of the sneakerhead culture (those that collect various sneakers), he can find golf versions of many popular sneakers. Most of the time, manufacturers put one of their spiked or spikeless outsoles on the bottom and presto!

Leading the way is Nike, who took the Air Jordan basketball shoes and reengineered them with golf-specific soles. Other brands are getting into the game like Puma with these new RS-G spikeless golf shoes. Wearing these really makes a statement on the course and in the clubhouse.

Metal spikes used to play a significant role in men’s golf shoes. However, today, metal spikes are basically extinct as every men’s golf shoe manufacturer tries to figure out the best spikeless pattern to deliver optimal comfort and grip.

Spikeless golf shoes come in many different shapes and styles that fit a golfer’s outfit and personality. However, for those not looking to compromise, the Puma Ignite NXT Crafted golf shoes are athletic enough to be semi-casual while still featuring premium materials. They can also be dressed up, if necessary. Oh, and they’re extremely comfortable, too.

Sometimes when you’re coming to the course from elsewhere and haven’t had time to grab your normal spikes or you’re just looking to play a few holes at a local pitch ‘n putt, a golfer doesn’t need traditional shoes.

The Adidas adiPure SP Knit spikeless golf shoes are perfect for anyone who truly wants to wear a single pair of shoes all day on and off the course.
