Editor's Notes

June 10, 2020:

Nothing can spoil a day on the fairways as much as uncomfortable shoes. A few of the offerings on our previous list were getting a bit long in the tooth, like the Dawgs, which were a Crocs ripoff anyway, and had the potential to be somewhat shameful to wear in competition of any kind. We also sent off the Woodworm Surge V3, which didn't have the kind of durability they needed to remain in consideration.

It was a bit of a surprise that we hadn't included anything from FootJoy given their respected place among players, so we brought on a pair of pairs in the FootJoy Icon Black and the FootJoy Tour-S. The Icons bear all the style of shoes you might have seen on Bagger Vance, but hide some modern touches that make them far more comfortable than his shoes probably were, including top-notch waterproofing and memory foam in the tongue and collars. And the Tour-S take that modernization a step further, incorporating the BOA lacing system you'll also find on the Ecco Biom G3 Boa, which allows you to pull steel cable through a ratchet instead of traditional tied laces, providing shooters with a nuanced fit that sacrifices less power throughout the swing and should provide more accuracy, as well. That way, those expensive clubs won't go to waste.

Special Honors

G/Fore Spikeless With a wide variety of styles, most players should have an easy time finding a pair from this company that they like, as long as they don't require removable spikes. Even spike lovers might change their minds over these, however, as they feature some of the most well-designed traction systems in the business, providing good grip and a quick transition to the clubhouse.

True OG Premium Anyone who isn't crazy about the way most options on the market look will find a fine casual pair here. They're made from soft full grain leather, repel both water and oil, and feel as comfortable as they look, all without sacrificing their one most important aim: to stabilize your stance at every point of your swing.
