The Best Golf Shoes For Winter

By: | Fri 20 Oct 2023

Considering the warm and dry summers that we now experience in the UK, we have several options for footwear during a round of golf.

However, as the temperatures drop and we’re forced to embrace chillier and wetter times, our decision regarding shoes becomes crucial.

Golfers will be looking for footwear that provides ample grip, is comfortable over long periods and can handle hilly terrains.

Below, we provide information on six pairs of golf shoes that will be welcome additions as we slowly gear up towards the start of winter.

Skechers also opted for an ultra-lightweight, responsive Ultra Go midsole and GOGA Max technology that is neatly packed into the shoe. By also including high-rebound cushioning, your feet will feel less fatigued during the latter parts of the round. The Softspikes Stealth cleats ensure you are locked into the surface and provides the needed grip during troubling conditions.
