The best summer golf shoes for 2024

The right pair of summer golf shoes can truly make or break your game. That may sound dramatic, but, as a golfer, you’re on your feet for long periods of time. So when your feet are comfortable and supported, it can contribute to a better performance and more enjoyable play all round. 

To get you laced up for the lighter months, we outline key features to consider when choosing fairway footwear. From FootJoy to Under Armour, we also share our favourite summer golf shoes for the upcoming season.

What to look for in summer golf shoes

When searching for the best summer golf shoes, there are several key features to consider:

  1. Total breathability: The best summer golf shoes are breathable, providing plenty of heat and moisture to be released and keep your feet cool during those warm rounds. If you’re feeling your feet slip inside sweaty shoes, you likely need more suitable footwear. Look for high-quality materials, such as full-grain leather, mesh, or perforated materials that allow air circulation and prevent discomfort.

  2. Optimum comfort: Staying comfy is a priority on the course, especially on milder days when you want to spend longer savouring the game and outdoors. Make sure your summer golf shoes aren’t too tight or loose, and have adequate padding and support (particularly in the insole and midsole) to walk and swing with ease.

  3. Lightweight construction: For increased agility and breezy longer rounds, definitely opt for lightweight summer golf shoes. Spikeless footwear is best for this, since they don’t have cleats or inserts that add weight, are closer to a pair of trainers, and are gentler on putting greens. 

  4. Superior stability: Drier conditions definitely lessen the need for high traction, but golf shoes with strong stability will ensure your swings and walks on varying terrains are always solid. Look for summer golf shoes with outsoles designed to provide grip without compromising flexibility.

  5. A style you love: While picking winter golf shoes is more closely shaped by harder working functionalities, you have a little more freedom to pick styles and colours to your taste in fairer months. That doesn’t mean that practical elements should be overlooked, but you can definitely be more flexible with fashion choices in the summer.
