Best Golf Shoes – Cleated

Cleated golf shoes feature spikes on the bottom of the outsoles for more reliable traction and grip on terrain such as hills, wet courses, and soft ground. In the past, spikes were generally metal, but they are slowly being phased out for plastic spikes. Plastic spikes don’t ruin the grass like metal spikes do, which is why most golf courses are now banning metal one. Cleated golf shoes also offer more stability and torsional control. Most pro golfers choose to play with spiked shoes.

Low-end

For low-end cleat options, we chose the Callaway Xfer Nitro and Callaway Xfer Pro. They both feature comfortable microfiber uppers that are weather resistant with great stability.

Best Golf Shoes – Spikeless

Spikeless shoes are a tad different than cleated shoes. Instead of spikes on the bottom of the outsole, they actually have small rubber lugs. These lugs also provide traction–not to the degree of spiked shoes–but also allow high-range movements. Traction in spikeless shoes is best on firmer ground. They are also lightweight, low-profile, more flexible, and slightly more comfortable with a more grounded feel. You can even wear them off the golf course if you want to. This makes them widely versatile and convenient, which is why sales for them have soared in the past few years.

Low-end

Our top choices for low-end spikeless shoes include the Adidas Adicross V, with 72 strategically placed lugs and comfortable sockliner and EVA cushioning. The next would be the Ashworth Cardiff ADC, which is fully leather, waterproof, with full-length cushioning. It’s quite a steal!
