Golf Monthly Verdict

A high quality pair of trainer-like golf shoes that are stable, waterproof and comfortable. The Flyer is versatile and can easily be worn away from the golf course. Styling may be a bit polarising.

Italian brand Duca del Cosma makes some of the highest quality golf footwear and you’ll experience that from the moment you take the Flyer shoes out of their box.

This spikeless trainer-like model doesn’t even particularly look like a golf shoe so will tick the box for golfers who want something casual that can be worn off the course and away from it.

I found them to be a heavy, sturdy wear when testing them out on the golf course, and you can tell that they are built to last and keep your feet warm and dry. In terms of sizing, it does come up ever-so-slightly on the small side so I'd recommend going up half a size.

The fully waterproof leather feels high quality and the shoes are supremely comfortable with a soft, locked in feel, putting them up there with some of the most comfortable golf shoes on the market. The soft leather tongue of the shoe in particular has a lovely high quality feel to it.

The grip on offer is very good in the dry but may be an issue during the winter months when the ground is much softer. In normal conditions, though, there's plenty of stability in the shoe with a very grippy outsole. I didn't find them to be too hot in warm conditions so there is breathability from the Flyer shoes, too.

Something that will divide golfers is the styling of the shoes, which certainly won’t be for everybody. They are quite ‘out there’ and have a retro trainer look in my opinion, which has certainly grown on me. They’re definitely not the best looking shoes though, I’d have to say, but that is a matter of personal opinion.

The big ‘C’ branding is fine but I’d have preferred a more clean, minimal look. The logo and Italian flag on the tongue of the shoe looks very classy but it doesn’t quite match up with the black lines around the shoe.

The Flyer is a very comfortable wear and it appears to have been made with high quality materials, making it a consideration when thinking of the best spikeless golf shoes. If you’re a fan of the styling then perhaps, barring the heaviness, there’s nothing not to like about the Duca del Cosma Flyer shoes.
