Why Good Golf Shoes Are A Must Have For Your Golf Game

Nov 21, 2007
It should not be a mystical journey to find a pair of practical, good-fitting, good-looking golf shoes. There are certainly many factors that go into the decision to buy them, yet with a little study it should not be too hard to get the golf shoes you need. You may be pressured to buy if you go immediately into a store and start asking questions. That is why it makes sense to start looking for answers on the internet. There you will find sites of companies who make the shoes, companies who sell the shoes, and individual's opinions about different shoes.

While you are investigating the different shoes, do some research about the courses where you have or will want to play golf. Golf course facilities and policies will make a difference in the golf shoes you will want. For example, golf courses that do not have any or enough golf carts for everyone to use will leave you with no choice but to walk. In this case, you will want footwear that will stand up to several hours of walking. Comfort is even more important when you are moving from hole to hole on your feet.

Golf course policies can have an effect in different ways. For one thing, many golf clubs do not allow hard metal spikes on their courses. The soft spikes have virtually taken over where golf shoes are concerned. If you have any doubt, ask your golf club. Chances are they will tell you no to hard spikes.

Another way golf club policies have an impact on which shoes you wear is that many will not allow you to wear tennis shoes on the course. If you are worried that your footwear looks too much like tennis shoes, it may prevent you from playing your best or enjoying the game. if you think that will be a problem, you might look for more classic shoe styles like saddle golf shoes or oxfords, wing tip golf shoes, or shoes that look more like dress shoes. They do not have to feel stiff or uncomfortable, just look classy and respectable.

Fit is an important part of getting good golf shoes. Try them on and walk around the store in them to see how they feel. Do not be taken in by the theory that shoes need to be broken in. If they do not feel good when you put them on, they will not feel good after hours on the golf course. Some women's footwear comes in combination widths for a more perfect fit. For example, you might get a B width with a AA heel. If you have been shopping a long time and have not found what you want, stop and try again another day. Your feet may be beginning to swell after being put in and out of shoes all day. Whatever size is right for you, you will find it by trying on as many shoes as necessary.

Whether you opt for Nike golf shoes, Foot Joy, or any other brand, you will only be happy if you get the shoes that are most practical for your situation. It should not be a very difficult task. It should be something you can do without pain or frustration.
