Shoes for sum­mer

Golf Monthly - - Your View -

Golf shoe de­sign takes a big step for­ward ev­ery year, and golfers re­ally are spoilt for choice. The per­fect pair for sum­mer doesn’t nec­es­sar­ily mean spike­less. While they tend to pro­vide more com­fort and off-course ver­sa­til­ity than spiked shoes, the dis­tance be­tween the trac­tion, mo­bil­ity and com­fort pro­vided by these two cat­e­gories is nar­row­ing.

That said, the ex­tra over­all per­for­mance from a cleated shoe is use­ful all year round, and they are get­ting more com­fort­able all the time.

Many golfers have a pair of each worn in ro­ta­tion, or de­pend­ing on the weather. At this time of year, bright colours seem most ap­pro­pri­ate and these of­fer­ings from FootJoy, Puma, Skech­ers, Ecco and Adi­das fit the bill per­fectly if you are look­ing to lace up a new pair of shoes.
