Golf Shoes: Style vs Substance

Have you ever wondered whether golf shoes are really necessary for the game?

Whilst it is entirely possible to play in regular trainers, the right pair of men’s golf shoes will ensure your grip never wavers whether playing on soft, rough or wet terrain – so why risk it? With the world of designer golf shoes ever expanding, even the most style-conscious golfer can benefit from effortless form, but the trick is knowing where to begin. Here, we explore three of our favourite men’s golf shoe brands available from Clarkes Golf, offering style, affordability and innovative technology so that you never need to sacrifice your game again.

Choose a shoe that works for you

Whether you’re a novice or a well-seasoned golfer, the chances are that when it comes to your footwear, you already have certain criteria in mind. Do you value comfort to support your feet during many hours of walking from course to course? Perhaps your priority is a stable shoe with a spiked sole that can stand the test of time. Whatever it is, the first and most important part of choosing your next pair of golf shoes is to establish what you feel is most important for you and narrow down your options to align with those needs.

There are hundreds of sporting brands out there who offer their own take on pro golf shoes, and although some brands specialise in specific styles, the three brands we talk about today offer a variety of options that will meet a range of golfer’s requirements, whatever your preference may be.
