Christian Hafer

Welcome to GOLF’s 2020 Style Guide. Our Ashley Mayo and Christian Hafer put together their go-to looks based off their favorite items coming to market right now. So as we head toward crisp fall mornings and chilly winter rounds, these pieces will help you look cool, play confidently and feel like yourself. Check out our picks below or browse more items on Fairway Jockey.

Full disclosure: I’m really excited about the golf shoe offerings we’re seeing from brands across the spectrum this fall. For a while now, we’ve seen golf shoes get more and more athletic, but the infusion of streetwear has never felt more prominent.

Puma’s chunky RS-G shoe is arguably the closest a golf shoe has ever gotten to high fashion. Nike and Adidas are churning out golf-takes of iconic sneaker styles. Footjoy is nailing the intersection of timeless style and modern comfort. True Linkswear, G/Fore and Cuater by TravisMathew have proven to be unequivocal masters of the lifestyle golf shoe. Basically, every brand is modernizing the golf shoe as we know it — and we’re here for it.

Gone are the days of having just one pair of shoes in your locker. Shop our favorites below to up your style game in one quick sweep.

TRUE LUX Hybrid Men’s Golf Shoe

We took the modern performance and heritage design from the LUX Knit and elevated the aesthetic, fit, and function.
