10 sole-cushioning, swing-stabilising kicks to power you through 18 holes.

Shoes that look as good off the course as on

Cole Haan GrandPro Topspin
This classic shape has rubber traction elements and so much cushion at the midsole that you’ll want to wear these away from the course, too.

Nike Free Golf
You’ll see Nelly Korda sporting these on the LPGA Tour, but the athletic silhouette and spikeless outsole means you can take them off the course.

These models offer the support you need

Ecco LT1
The outsole is connected to the lacing system for wrap-around stability and has more foam, making
Ecco’s shoes even comfier.

AllBirds Dashers
AllBirds, popular for its street shoes, got into golf in 2023. The merino wool lining helps regulate temperature and moisture. Recycled materials are used, too.

Spikeless shoes with athletic appeal

The nylon upper is lightweight and waterproof. The TPU outsole – think a cross between rubber and plastic – is flexible and durable.

Footjoy Pro SL
The Pro SL features more control with a new traction pattern and heel stabiliser. The foam compound in the midsole absorbs energy to keep your feet from aching.

Under Armour Phantom 
The Phantom sneaker was so popular, Under Armour made a golf version. It has the same lightweight upper and thick, foam midsole plus spikeless traction just for golf.

You’ll love that weightless feeling

New Balance 574 Greens V2 
The 574s were introduced in the 1980s as a running shoe and soon became popular as a street shoe. This golf-shoe version has the same focus on lightweight comfort.

True Linkswear Lux G 
The neoprene collar is so stretchy that once you slip into the shoe, it fits around your foot like a sock. The shoe is also lightweight and waterproof.

footjoy performa
The outsole is designed for on and off-course use by providing grip without being obtrusive. The waterproof upper is great for walkers, and the rounded toe shape improves comfort.
