GOLF Spring/Summer 2021 Style Guide: The best men’s and women’s shoes for your game
The golf shoe might be the most important part of any outfit.
We recently launched our Spring/Summer 2021 Style Guide, which categorized the best looks for for every golf style — athletic, casual, preppy, etc. If you’re not quite ready for the full get-up, we’ve broken out our guide further by product category (and will continue to do so over the coming weeks).
The golf shoe is arguably the most important part of your golf outfit — particularly if you’re a walker. First and foremost, it needs to be comfortable. Traction, stability, support, and reaction are all important keywords you’ll want to see in the descriptions of your next pair(s) of kicks, but remember style is important too!
Scroll down to shop our seasonal favorites. Many of these are a part of our overarching guide, but we threw in a few extras we think are great, too.
