As a brand, Nike is unsurpassed in sports. And over the years, many of the world's greatest athletes have worn sports apparel emblazoned with the famous Nike tick. From Tiger Woods to Serena Williams, their roster of athletes is perhaps the most illustrious on the planet. However, when most people think of Nike they think of the company's most iconic athlete, Micheal Jordan. And Jordan loves golf, which is why the Nike subsidiary brand, Jordan, expanded its Jordan Brand of sneakers into the golf realm a few years ago.

The Jordan Brand is probably the most unique in golf because like Jordan sneakers, they can quickly become collector's items. These limited edition releases certainly appeal to a different demographic of golfers, perhaps a group that hasn’t always been welcome on the golf course. 

The best Nike golf shoes are more readily available than Jordan golf shoes but they arguably don't have the same desirability as these offerings. What we have found is that the best golf shoes from Jordan might gain value that goes way beyond their performance or look on the golf course - these are also very capable golf shoes, with imaginative colors and designs that often venture way beyond golf’s stuffy past.

Virtually nothing is off-limits when it comes to Jordan shoes, especially when it comes to styling. Low tops, mid tops, even the best high tops, plenty of color combinations, materials, spikes and spikeless with aggressive soles describe the options. So without further ado, we've put together the below list of some of the best Jordan golf shoes. If these styles aren't to your taste, check out our guides on the best golf shoes for walking, the versatile styles of the best Ecco golf shoes or the best Skechers golf shoes too which are notorious for comfort.

May not be the best shoes for those who suffer with blisters on their heels

Starting with the ADG 4 shoes, Nike has produced a stunning, traditional design that is perfect for those summer rounds. Featuring a supple leather construction, you could be forgiven for thinking breathability is compromised somewhat but this is not the case thanks to holes textured all around its tongue and upper.

Keeping true to traditions, these shoes also have the iconic elephant print pattern on their heel as well as the signature Jordan logo. And while you'll look the part on the course wearing these shoes, their rubber sole has an integrated traction pattern that offers a stable and firm base on the ground. In terms of performance, we found the traction of the sole gave plenty of stability. We tested these shoes on a damp, dreary day when any lack of traction would certainly have shown up but the ADG 4 showed no weakness whatsoever in this area. Finally we found them to be very comfortable thanks to the Nike React technology. It features a lightweight, durable foam which absorbs just the right amount of pressure to make them a very comfortable shoe even on the toughest of walks.

May not deliver the same grip as other shoes on this list

Next up we have one of the best spikeless golf shoes out there - the Air Jordan 1 Low G. Paying tribute to the classic Jordan silhouette, these golf specific shoes have been redesigned. As such they feature encapsulated air in the heel cushions that make every step a joy, and they are made from genuine leather for comfort too.

While the outsole has been adjusted to suit added grip on the golf course, it's still incredibly low. The adjustments on the outsole include a forefoot pivot circle, which offers extra traction on one of the most vital areas of the foot. We found no problems with grip in dry and damp conditions. That being said we certainly wouldn't wear these shoes in properly wet conditions, but the grip in damp morning conditions was impressive.

While these shoes are designed for use in warmer conditions, they do also come with a 1 year waterproof warranty, which is a great addition as you can never predict when the heavens will open on the course. Ultimately, these shoes exist to look really good on - and off - the golf course with the comfort we had while walking was an added bonus. With that in mind, these are brilliant casual golf shoes.

Like all white shoes, keeping them clean and bright can be a challenge

If you’re looking for a warm-weather golf shoe with a bit of a classic look while still retaining the Jordan flair, the Air Jordan XI all-white shoe is a pretty good fit. The shoe features glossy patent leather on the mudguard and on the leather-tone outsole plate. That makes it quite an easy shoe to wipe clean, compared to others on this list so it’s not super difficult to keep clean, but any white shoe is always a challenge, especially in muddy conditions.

This is a shoe that appeals to younger and older golfers alike, and certainly doesn’t offend the more conservative player - we think this is the best golf shoe for seniors in the Nike Air Jordan range. Plus, it’s a very comfortable shoe that’s also waterproof. With seven sets of spikes surrounded by an aggressive outsole design, it offers excellent grip and traction on the turf.

Retro design will put some off

Another new model at the moment are the Retro 6G golf shoes. A design you might have seen an early Michael Jordan play in, these shoes feature some classic 90's design features like the visible air bubbles and rubber sole. These shoes also feature a moulded heel that Jordan requested back in 1991 for perfect comfort in the Achilles, two holes in the tongue and extra reinforcement around the tongue area.

The result is a comfortable shoe with a degree of stability thanks to the seven spikes and outsole design. We also like how you can get the shoe in sizes ranging from 3-15 although we do wish there were more colors to choose from.

The size of the shoe will put some off

The Jordan Brand made a point to celebrate the Air Jordan IV throughout 2021, and that included its performance versions for golf. Three new Air Jordan IV Golf colorways were introduced this year -- the “Seersuchker”, “Green Metallic,” and “Teal Purple,” worn by the Jordan Brand’s family of athletes at various golf tournaments this year. These mid-top shoes feature an aggressive sole with seven sets of spikes on each shoe. The Seersucker is in reference to one of MJ’s suits, and features classic, striped material. The Green Metallic is based on the Air Jordan/OG Metallic Pack, and the Teal Purple was inspired by oceanside colors and ripstop nylon of Jordan Flight Suits. It has also been seen on tour over the past few years, with former Masters champion Bubba Watson regularly sporting this excellent pair of sneakers.  

How we test golf shoes

Our golf shoe testing methodology revolves around putting models to the test over a number of rounds and in different conditions. This is so we can gain a better idea of overall performance in terms of factors like grip comfort, grip, stability, waterproofing and how they actually look on the golf course. Each of the shoes listed above has been personally used by a member of the Golf Monthly team. This is the best way of testing a golf shoe, as using it in the real world over a number of weeks allows us to see how the sneakers perform when variables change like weather, ground conditions, different stances and lies, and so on. 

We think this also gives us information on the little details as well like which brands come up small or large, which models start to rub a bit too much after 36 holes, which designs can be used off the golf course and for the drive home? We are very comprehensive in our tests to the point where we will regularly attend product launches and meet with the manufacturer’s R&D experts to understand the new technology. That isn't to say manufacturers can buy a good review though, as all our reviews are made by golfers, for golfers.

How to choose golf shoes

Nike Jordan shoes are some of the best and most reliable golf shoes on the market. Each boasts a variety of features that will help you play better and score lower rounds, but which shoe is right for you? As there are a lot of things to consider when purchasing the best golf shoe, from grip to comfort, we've decided to set a few key points out for you below, that will help you make the most informed choice when buying your next pair of golf Jordans. 

Spiked or spikeless?

The best golf shoes above are split into spiked (or cleated) and spikeless designs and there are pros and cons of each. Spiked golf shoes offer better grip and stability but don't sit as low to the ground as spikeless models. Spikeless golf shoes offer off-course versatility. They are perfect for driving in the car to the golf course, playing a round, and then driving home again because they are usually light and comfortable, but most won't offer as much traction as a spiked shoe.

Waterproofing

If you live somewhere that gets a lot of rain, then a waterproof shoe is a must. Some of the best designs will keep your feet bone dry but if you play golf in glorious sunshine most of the time, then you may view other factors as more significant, like breathability. Many players choose to have one pair for winter and a lighter pair for summer as both kinds of shoe suit different requirements.

Getting the right fit

When picking out golf shoes getting the right fit is important because otherwise blisters can build up or your feet may slide around inside, which can limit your stability when playing a shot. When trying a pair on for the first time, listen for the 'whoosh' sound when you slide your feet in - that's the sound of all the air leaving the shoe to confirm it is the correct size, but do a walking test to be sure. They shouldn't pinch anywhere, nor should your feet be moving around inside.

When it comes to the right fit, it is also worth considering using different laces. Normal laces are good for most but for some golfers, BOA-laced shoes provide more convenient fastening and shouldn’t loosen during the course of a round but are usually a tad more expensive.

Styling

Thankfully modern golf shoe design has seen many brands create not just traditional, classic-looking shoes, but also modern styles that can be used off the golf course too. Therefore it is important to think about what your shoes look like and what style suits you. Whatever you like or dislike, there is something for everyone these days.

Budget

Some of the best golf shoes on the market do come with a pretty heavy price tag and it is always wise to shop around before you commit to buying a new pair of golf shoes.
