There are plenty of excellent shoes in the Skechers range to choose from but this one has something a bit extra. At present they are only available in black, but we love the flash of sea blue from the sole and the piping and detailing. They look great with a skort. The traction is second to none with an outsole that is peppered with firm nubbins which really screws you into the ground as you hit shots. 

Let's talk comfort for a second. The Skechers Arch Fit insole system with podiatrist-certified arch support literally gave my feet a much-needed hug. For good reason too, the shape was developed with 20 years of data and 120,000 unweighted foot scans so that would be why then. I won’t lie these shoes made me smile. Great job Skechers. Plus they’re 100% waterproof making them an excellent pair of spikeless women's golf shoes (opens in new tab).

How We Test Our 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? 

As these shoes are sneakers, we also used many of them in other settings around the clubhouse, or on our way to the course. That also gave us a good indication of their versatility and how well they can be styled with everyday clothing. Here at Golf Monthly, golf shoe testing is headed up by Staff Writer Dan Parker(opens in new tab) who is ably assisted by our Technical Editor Joel Tadman and Digital Editor Neil Tappin(opens in new tab).

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. If you're looking to find out more about the methodology behind our golf shoe testing process, take a look at our how we test guide(opens in new tab) (opens in new tab), which also provides information on how we rank each product. 

What to Consider When Buying a Golf Shoe

There are a number of factors to consider when picking out your next pair of golf shoes, particularly if you have wider feet than others. Let's take a look at them below.

1. Comfort

Comfort is one of the key things any golfer should think about when purchasing a new golf shoe. You're going to be wearing this for 18-holes multiple times per week, so you want to ensure that what you're putting on your feet is a comfortable shoe that has 

When trying shoes on, listen for a 'whoosh' sound which should indicate air leaving the shoe which usually suggests a good fit. Walk around in the shoes too so you can feel any pinching and whether your feet are moving around inside them. A correctly fitted shoe should do neither of these things.

This is important because if your feet slide around inside, or you get rubbing and blisters, you won't want to wear them again and they could damage your feet and hinder your performance. 

2. Support

Similarly, when purchasing a pair of golf sneakers you need to make sure you buy the shoe that provides you with the most support. This is especially vital if you're planning on playing regularly in these shoes with it being very easy to twist and turn your ankle while walking on an undulating course. 

Likewise, it is also very easy to put additional strain or stress on your knees or hips, if you're not wearing a well-supported pair of shoes. For that reason, you need to consider buying sneakers that keep your feet well locked into the shoe, provide good ankle support and superior cushioning underfoot. 

3. Waterproofing 

Waterproofing is always important in a good golf shoe. Us golfers are outside all day sometimes and that means the occasional bit of rain is inevitable, and your shoes need to be able to deal with this. Therefore always check if a model is waterproof.  While golf sneakers are mostly designed for summer use, you will find some that are waterproof, as the weather can be very unpredictable, it might be a wise decision to purchase a shoe that will always keep your feet dry. It's also worth noting that some shoes are 'water-resistant' and they will survive in a short shower, but will struggle to keep the water out in significant rain. 

4. Grip

Golf sneakers are designed to be worn during the summer months as their lack of spikes means they are not great for use in wet or muddy terrain. But it is still always important to buy the shoe that gives you the best grip. Grip is so important as the better connection you have with the ground, the greater your performance on the course will be. Plus with a spikeless golf shoe you'll get greater versatility to wear the shoe not just on the course but off it as well. 

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 but might not offer as much traction. Have a think about which factor is most important to you here.

As you have seen in this guide, most of the best casual golf shoes are spikeless, so check out our best spiked golf shoes guide for a comprehensive look at some spiked options.

5. Budget

Finally, be aware of your budget because you can find a casual golf shoe at any price point. Sneakers can be some of the more expensive models on the market because they combine greater style elements from some of the biggest and best apparel brands on the market. But as they are made of slightly less material compared to a spiked golf shoe, you can find some great deals on golf sneakers on the market if you shop around. 

Skechers produce some of the best golf shoes on the market, but why not take a look at some of the other great shoes that other brands have to offer also.
