Golf Shoes And How They Can Improve Your Golf Game

Buying the right golf shoes is just as important for your golf game as buying the right set of clubs or golf balls. Actually, if you think about it, they are more important. If your feet are not secure when you go to swing, you can and will loose your balance. Most golf courses do not require a certain type of shoes, but there are a few that do. If you play at one of the courses that require a certain type of shoe, you need to know what they are before you go shopping.

The first thing you will notice about your golf shoes is that they are lighter weight then your regular shoes and tire you out less. The next thing you may notice is that the bottom of the shoes offers you a more secure footing, allowing for a better swing. Not all golf shoes have cleats on the bottom of them, some have special designed soles and others have suction cups.

You may also notice that the style of golf shoes and the golf game have changed drastically over the years. No longer do you have one plain design with different colors, but now you have Clogs, Tennis style, Sandals, and of course, the dressier styles to choose from. The makers of golf shoes know that the more comfortable your feet are the better your game.

You have a variety of materials to choose from as well. There are shoes made from leather, both real and fake, and then you have shoes made from suede, plastic and even PVC. You will then also choose from waterproof and water-resistant.

Remember the type of soles mentioned? You can now choose from soft spikes to hard spikes - but be warned, you may not be able to use the hard spikes at your local golf course as they tend to damage it. There are also Carbide or ceramic tip spikes for the more serious golfer, simply because they are some of the most expensive on the market.

Playing golf is not all about what your upper half can do, but bringing your whole body into it. Find a shoe that can be made around your foot, and wear comfortable socks at the time of fitting as well. Even when trying on the sandals as they will be adjustable.

The right golf shoes can only improve your golf game, so be choosy, be comfortable, but most of all, find a style that fits you just right.
