Non-golfers or occasional players might wonder about the effectiveness and necessity of wearing golf shoes. Some might even think of it as just an optional investment. But if you play seriously or want to improve your game, golf shoes are a must.
Other sports like tennis and basketball have very specific footwear, why should golf be any different?
A golfer who walks, as opposed to riding a golf cart, typically walks about five miles or more when playing 18-hole. For this reason alone, you want comfortable shoes that fit perfectly, keep your feet warm and dry.
