How we tested the best Skechers golf shoes

When it comes to testing golf shoes Golf Monthly has a strong testing procedure that revolves around putting them to the test over a number of rounds and in a variety of different conditions. We often play multiple rounds in one day in the same shoe too.

That way we have a clear understanding of which shoes are more comfortable than others, whilst also making note ot things like grip, stability, versatility, looks and overall performance.

Before the testing even begins we often attend product launches and have discussions with the manufacturer’s R&D experts to understand the new technology. That way we know what the technology is supposed to do, and can test for whether it does so.

The final point to make here is manufacturers cannot buy a good review because we tell it how it is for all golf product reviews, not just golf shoes.

What to consider when buying golf shoes

There are a number of factors to consider when picking out your next pair of golf shoes so to help you narrow down your search and inform your buying decision, below we have put together some key points.

Comfort – Obviously the first place to start is comfort. We all have different sizes and shapes of foot which will therefore mean some models are more comfortable than others. As such going to try on different models is invaluable before making a purchase.

When you are 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 so neither of these things.

Getting the right fit is important because otherwise blisters can build up. Or your feet may slide around inside, which limits your stability.

Spiked or spikeless? – Do you want a spiked or spikeless design because there are incredibly good golf shoes in each category. That being said each have their own pros and cons.

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.

Waterproofing – If you live somewhere that gets a lot of rain then a waterproof shoe is a must. The best designs will keep your feet bone dry however if you play golf in glorious sunshine most of the time, then you may view other factors as more significant.

Styling – Thankfully modern golf shoe design has seen many brands not just create 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 – Finally, set a maximum budget and shop with that in mind. There’s a great golf shoe to suit any budget and having this will help narrow your search.
