Are Golf Shoes Necessary To Play The Game Well?

Whether you're opting to traverse the course on foot or in a golf cart, the fact is you'll still need to do a considerable amount of walking during game play, so what you choose to wear on your feet really matters.

But how much?

Today, we're going to be answering this much asked question as we delve a little deeper into how much the right pair of men's golf shoes can affect game play.

The benefits of good golf shoes

If you're looking to step your golfing game up a level, the right pair of golfing shoes can be all it takes. Well-fitted golf shoes can help you stay comfortable during the long and often laborious day on the course, helping you to better focus on the game itself. But that's not all, they can also:

  • Support your weight when swinging.
  • Provide a sturdier foundation.
  • Offer more flexibility during play.
  • Be adapted on different terrains.
  • Provide better grip.
There's no denying that those serious about playing golf can benefit from a more secure and fluid experience when wearing appropriate golf shoes.

Golf shoes may not be mandatory, but they can significantly reduce the risk of injury

Golf is so often misunderstood as a pretty sedentary game, but the truth is there is a lot of physicality to playing. Not only can you expect to walk several thousands of steps during the day, but there is also a lot of movement that can easily result in injury if the proper form and equipment isn't used.

In this case, the right men's golf shoes can offer a sturdy base for players to swing from, allowing the body to turn, and bodyweight to shift with less risk of injury occurring. Not to mention that the option for additional features such as spiked golf shoes make it even less likely of a slip, trip or fall from happening.

So, if style and performance aren't enough of a reason to consider investing in golf shoes – perhaps reducing your risks of injury might be.

Still not sure? Here's why we think that golf shoes are a MUST for all golfers

Yes, golf shoes can be a pretty hefty investment, and for those who are just starting out, it may not seem necessary. But the truth is that the right pair of men's golf shoes pay for themselves when it comes to unexpected benefits that they can offer you, including:

  • Unrivalled comfort and foot support on those long days.
  • Waterproof material keeping your feet warm and dry in inclement weather.
  • Improvement in your overall performance.
  • They just look good!

Their reputation proceeds them, so if anyone could convince you to invest in your footwear, it's them.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
