We understand that golf can be an expensive sport to play because there are so many elements to it that require money. From club sets, to bags, to balls, all the way to accessories, money is needed to fill every aspect of your golfing setup. Another element is golf shoes which are a vitally important part because these need to keep your feet comfortable, stable, feel good, look good and perform in just about every way you would want them to on the golf course and sometimes off it too. 

Importantly, golf brands know we not only want different styles and designs, but also shoes at different prices as well. Not every golfer can afford to spend two hundred dollars on a pair of the best golf shoes, especially with the rising cost of living, which leads us to this guide. We have compiled a list of our favorite golf shoes that can be found for $100 or less. With such a low price, it can be tricky to find a model that is actually good but with the shoes we have selected below, someone from the Golf Monthly team has actually used them properly. As such we feel confident the shoes will perform well for you.

Style may not be to everyone's taste

This shoe is the definition of a golf sneaker. What we mean here, is in testing we noticed we could easily use this shoe at home, to the gym, walk 18 holes, have a drink in the bar and stop to pick up groceries on the way home.

The sleek, athletic style works just about anywhere, and the upper offers breathability and comfort all day. In particular, we loved the Storm Flat Knit Collar around the ankle which provides a locked-in feel while also being extremely comfortable.

We felt very stable even when swinging hard in the Charged Phantom SL however we should say that whilst the shoe performed really well in dry to damp conditions, we would recommend a spiked model if you play more golf in wetter conditions. Finally style wise we enjoyed the blue color we tested above, but there are three other colors to choose from as well, each of which really look great.

Not as stable as some spikeless golf shoes

Aesthetically, we instantly noticed an identical likeness to the Ultraboost running shoe, which is something that will no doubt go down well with admirers of the original sneakers. The materials are very similar too. It uses a Primeknit mesh upper - which is breathable and water resistant - as well as the sock-like material around the tongue of the shoe. There is plenty of padding around the ankle and there have also been some reinforcements around the toe area. The comfort from the Ultraboost is off the charts. Anyone who has worn the running sneakers will appreciate the softness and cushioning underfoot, and that has translated to this golf shoe. 

Although not fully waterproof, it is water resistant, the Ultraboost has incredible breathability, with the mesh upper giving a supreme sense of comfort when we tested out on the course. What's more, we especially liked how the Ultraboost is not pretending to be something it's not. It’s not a shoe to play your 36-hole club championships in, but it is perfect for a casual round.  With a silhouette so similar to that of the sneaker, they blend into pretty much any environment. We’ve worn them to work, to the gym and then straight to the golf course. Alongside the Cole Haan ZeroGrand OvertakeTrue Linkswear FS-01 and Air Jordan 1 Low G, they are the most versatile golf shoes we’ve ever worn.

The sneaker look will not be to everyone's taste

One of the best summer golf shoes available, the Nike Roshe G Next Nature offers bags of comfort in a supremely lightweight and breathable package. It boasts a classic style and comes in five cool colorways that will appeal to all kinds of players including those that want to stand out and those that want a more understated look on the course. during our testing sessions with these shoes, we found they delivered bags of comfort and were very spongey underfoot. Combine that with their lightweight mesh upper and these really are one of the most comfortable golf shoes around! 

On first looks, the grip on these shoes doesn't look to be that comprehensive, but in fact it really delivered. We didn't slip once when wearing these shoes, even when testing them in wetter conditions. They are a very versatile shoe aswell, with the Roshes looking great paired with any outfit and be worn in your day-to-day too, not just on the golf course. The one thing to note is these are primarily a summer golf shoe and do not perform well at all in the rain. But they aren't meant to, and are designed to keep your feet cool and ventilated in warmer days on the course.

Style may not be to everyone's tastes

Puma have always been a front runner when pushing the boundaries to design trendy yet functional golf shoes and the GS-Fast, an update on their much talked about RS-G Golf Shoes, certainly continues that trend. These are a statement shoe for those players wanting to complete a streetwear look on the course. Admittedly these shoes will not be everyone's cup of tea and we did get several comments about them from playing partners and other members of the golf course when we first tested them out. 

But aesthetics aside, our testing procedures showed us that Puma have put an awful lot of technology into these shoes, making them one of the most comfortable spikeless golf shoes on the market. Their chunky sole provides exceptional level of cushioning as you walk around the course, while the mesh sock-liner prevents the risk of blisters arising on your feet. 

The GS-Fast comes with a wide rubber outsole that is littered with a ton of small rubber studs. That means these shoes are better used as a summer golf shoe but still performed very well in slightly soft autumnal conditions with their grippy outsole providing solid traction on the turf. They are also completely waterproof and are very easy to wipe down after your round.

Quite garish in certain colorways

One of the best Adidas golf shoes in the current range, the Codechaos shoe has been designed for those looking to differentiate themselves on the golf course. The upper is made of a multi layer mesh, making it lightweight, flexible and breathable. It also has a thin film on top that provides waterproof protection, durability and it repels water and debris so it doesn’t stain and is easy to clean. Additionally, full length Boost cushioning features across the entire midsole, creating energy rebound and putting a spring in your step.

At the moment you can get the older design pictured above for less than $100 and we expect this price to come down a bit more given there is a newer Codechaos model.
