best of shoes

Spiked or spikeless? Colorful or a clean white? The golf shoe preference depends on the golfer.

Welcome to GOLF’s 2021/2022 edition of the Best of Everything, where we’re providing you with the, well… best of everything! Check out our picks below or browse more items in our Pro Shop.


Golfers hold onto putters forever. They’ll game the same set of irons for years. But shoes? We’ll buy seven different pairs of shoes, all different colors, and reinvest in kicks annually. The cross-section of fashion and equipment meet where? Down near the ground, on your feet. 

You might be looking for something spikeless, that is comfortable as ever and can be worn on the course, in the parking lot, in the clubhouse and in the car on the way home. You might prefer the spiked variety, that really helps grip your body to the ground. You’re not alone. 

Thankfully, the team is here to help. Our staff of experts found the best of the best. Check our picks for the best golf shoes below, or visit our Pro Shop for a plethora of worthy options in other categories.
