How to Find a Great Pair of Golf Shoes

Aug 9, 2008
When you are looking for golf shoes there are a few things to consider. You should consider the material, type, style and other factors in a golf shoe. There are also several different places you can go when you are looking for the right golf shoe.

Most golf shoes are either leather or polyester. The leather golf shoes are usually the preferred material. Leather has a natural waterproofing in it in addition to the extra artificial waterproof offered by the manufacturers of the shoes. Leather golf shoes are breathable and perfect for summer weather. When you buy golf shoes you shouldn't go cheap. It is important to find a quality pair of leather shoes. Polyester is for someone who is on a tight budget for golf shoes. The ideal polyester shoe has polyester lining which is non-porous.

There are three designs of golf shoes you might consider when you are shopping for golf shoes. These include the classic golf shoe, the sandal, and the boot. The classic golf shoe is the most common. When you select a classic shoe be sure it is appropriate for the weather and lightweight. The sandal is not confining like the saddle golf shoes but they are light and breathable. Sandal golf shoes are also really comfortable but you should be sure they fit your feet right. The boot golf shoe is not popular and cannot be found in a lot of places. These are tough shoes that offer traction in bad weather. The boot is expensive. However, if you need protection from wet weather and warmth then you should consider these.

Waterproofing is important in your golf shoes. If your feet are wet because you are playing on a wet green then this can make your entire game uncomfortable. If you play in wet feet you can also get blisters which can make for worse days to come. Golf shoes should be made from Gortex material because it is tough and great for poor weather conditions.

When you are shopping for golf shoes it is important to be there in person to try on your shoes. You need to know they fit you properly and they are comfortable for your foot. What fits great on your golf partner may not fit so great on you. Try on your shoes. Don't buy your shoes online where you have no idea what they will fit like.

There are many places you can buy golf shoes. You can go to the golf pro shops to find the best shoes. These are usually located on the golf courses. However, the sports shops like Big 5, FootLocker and so on will have good golf shoes. The brands you should look for include Callaway, HI-Tec, Footjoy Dryjoys PODS, Addidas Tour 360, Concorde GTX, Nike SP-7, and more.

When you are looking for the right golf shoe you need to be sure it fits properly. There are many types of shoes to pick from but don't forget the waterproofing.
