FIVE FEATURED PAIRS OF FOOTWEAR

Jul 19, 2019

When it comes to your feet on (and off) the golf course, comfort and performance are the name of the game. These 5 pairs of shoes are some of our favorites.

Golf Shoes for On the Course

Adidas and Puma make some of the best looking, feeling, and performing shoes on the market. Here's a look at 2 pairs that perform well on the course.

Adidas Tour360 XT Parley

The adidas Tour360 XT Parley is a spiked golf shoe with a story. On the course, the shoe keeps your feet firmly planted with an all-new X-Traxion pattern on the sole. Your midsole gets support from the familiar, but modified, 360Wrap lacing.

The Tour360 XT Parley don't lack comfort either. PureBoost foam on the sole and a unique knit upper make these shoes a joy to wear on the course. What makes the upper unique is the material it's made of. Woven into the fabric is recycled plastic taken from the ocean. Good for the planet and your feet!

Puma Ignite ProAdapt

The Puma Ignite ProAdapt golf shoe is the ultra-premium shoe in Puma's lineup. It has a soft, yet structured leather upper that gives the shoe a rich look. A molded comfort collar snuggly hugs your ankle, ensuring your feet stay grounded.

The sole of these shoes have Ignite foam running the length of the shoe for outstanding comfort. The PROADAPT outsole grasps the contours of the ground, giving you stability no matter your stance.

Off The Course Golf Shoes

More and more, companies are making golf shoes that you can wear off the course as well as on. These shoes are some of the standouts for 2019.

Nike Air Max 1 G

Your mind may not immediately go to "golf shoe" when you think about a Nike Air Max shoe. The Air Max 1 G challenges that notion.

Overall, the shoe looks like the original Air Max shoes. Where these Air Max's differ from their non-golf counterpart is the sole. Two different rubber traction patterns cover the bottom of the shoe. The curved pattern provides stability with lateral movement during your swing. The straight pattern helps you on uphill and downhill lies.

It goes without saying that these Nike shoes will be comfortable as well. So, if you like to have a sporty vibe on and off the course, these shoes are for you.

Adidas adiPure SP Knit

Knit uppers have been a trend in the shoe industry in 2019. The knitting gives the shoes breathability and comfort.

Adidas adds a touch of class to the trend with the adiPure SP Knit. The shoe is lightweight, breathable, and even waterproof (1-year warranty). Underfoot is the killer comfort combination of a Cloudfoam sockliner and the company's Boost foam in the midsole. The leather heel lining gives the shoe an elegant feel.

When you're on the course, 108 traction lugs on the sole keep your feet stable.

Oakley Sueded Lighthouse

Oakley has its traditions rooted in the surf/skate lifestyle. That hasn't stopped them from producing high-quality golf apparel, though.

The Sueded Lighthouse shoe looks like a skate shoe that can be used on the golf course. The suede and leather upper give the shoes a laid back vibe.

The rubber outsole may not provide as much traction support as other spikeless golf shoes but they are still functional. We like to wear these more off the course than on, though.
