Callaway Apex Junior Golf Shoes

RRP £59.00 | VIEW OFFER
Sizes (UK): 1-5 | Colours: White + Black

The boom in golf is certainly feeding down to the kids and Callaway has been quick out of the blocks with this very handy junior golf shoe for the 2022 season.

The Apex could be used at any time of the year. There is tonnes of protection against the elements in the top half and although, spikeless, Callaway’s renowned Fusion Lite TPU spikeless outsole will provide ample grip, even when conditions are slippy underfoot.

You also get loads of support around the ankle and the breathable membrane sock provides a snug fit while ensuring feet stay dry and warm when required. 

Adidas Golf Tour360 22 Junior Shoes

RRP £64.99 | VIEW OFFER
Sizes (UK): 2-5 | Colours: White

The Tour360 shoe has long been a best-seller for adidas and is worn by everyone from Major champions to high-handicappers. The quality of the 2022 model means it has to be one of the best kids’ golf shoes.

Nearly 18 years after it first launched, adidas Golf delved into the brand’s archives before taking the Tour360 back to the drawing board with a focus on two critical areas – fit and traction. The result is the Tour360 22, which adidas say is the “best-performing model” they’ve ever released.

And it is difficult to argue with that assessment. Adidas have pulled out all the stops to produce a shoe that mimics the natural movement of the feet and responds to the demands put on our base by all that shifting weight.

This model is worn on Tour by former World No.1 and two-time Major champion Dustin Johnson, so you’ll be in good company!

Under Armour Draw Sport Junior Golf Shoes

RRP £59.99 | VIEW OFFER
Sizes (UK): 3-6 | Colours: White + Academy Blue

Much of Under Armour’s appeal relates to its ability to produce shoes that compare well to the leading players in the golf shoe market but at a considerably cheaper price.

One of those who especially fits that bill is the Draw Sport, which has tried to create a spiked offering that is almost a hybrid of the two types of golf shoes. UA’s patented Never-Wet technology also creates a highly reliable barrier to water. 

The rotational resistance spikes are a world away from the traditional idea of this traction method. This supremely lightweight version adds to the comfort and flexibility certain players crave.

Jordan Spieth wears UA shoes and they certainly haven’t done him any harm. We can’t guarantee they’ll help you win three Majors, but there’s no doubt that they’re one of the best kids’ golf shoes of the year.

FootJoy Fuel Junior Golf Shoes

RRP £58.95 | VIEW OFFER
Sizes (UK): 1-5 | Colours: White + Black

When you think of FootJoy, chances are that you picture the more traditional footwear the brand is most renowned for. While FJ have produced athletic golf shoes before, they have always been more synonymous with models such as 2021’s Premiere Series and Traditions shoes.

But all that has changed with the introduction of FootJoy Fuel, the brand’s most athletic shoe ever. 

Golf has seen an influx of new and returning players in the past two years and, with more and more youngsters taking up the game, FJ have cleverly decided to target that new, modern market with this bold model.

It is therefore no surprise FootJoy chose to adapt this model for the junior golf shoe market, and it’s bound to be a hit with the kids, especially as it’s worn by Will Zalatoris and Max Homa!

Skechers Blaster Junior Shoes

RRP £39.99 | VIEW OFFER
Sizes (UK): 2-5 | Colours: White

You feel it is hard for Skechers to go wrong with junior golf shoes, such is its inclination towards the younger market.

And they certainly haven’t made any mistakes with the Blaster, which look contemporary, feels as good as most Skechers do and is packed with patented technology.

At first glance, it looks like a spikeless golf shoe but there are five Softspikes arranged in Skechers’ Stealth Pin System. Inside the Ultra Go & Goga Max Cushioning offer virtually unrivalled comfort plus you also get a one-year Waterproof guarantee with the patented H2GO Shield Waterproof protection.

One of the best kids’ golf shoes out there and superb value from a big-name brand who are represented on Tour by Matt Fitzpatrick.

Benross Ryder Junior Golf Shoes

RRP £39.99 | VIEW OFFER
Sizes (UK): 1-5 | Colours: White

You tend to get plenty of bang for your buck from Benross and the Ryder junior golf shoe is no exception.

It looks pretty robust and the dynamic multi-directional rubber sole is very grippy without being too conspicuous. The EVA Comfort footbed, combined with the cleverly designed midsole support ensures a snug fit.

Up top you get plenty of protection from the elements with the synthetic upper, supported by a moisture-wicking mesh lining that is just the job in the summer. 

A great kids’ golf shoe for less than £40.

Stromberg Vector Junior Spikeless Shoes

RRP £39.99 | VIEW OFFER
Sizes (UK): 1-5 | Colours: White + Black

Another of American Golf’s own brands and the sole on this junior golf shoe is the same as the one used on the Benross Ryder (see above).

You also get the same excellent all-round package with Stromberg’s distinctive styling thrown in. The brand is certainly proving hugely popular on the back of the parent company’s considerable marketing power.

And it is easy to see why Stromberg is performing so well with a shoe that offers bags of protection – you get a one-year waterproof guarantee – and ample support in all the right places. 

Nike Roshe Jr Shoes

RRP £39.99 | VIEW OFFER
Sizes (UK): 2-5 | Colours: Blue + White

The Nike Roshe trainer is one of the most iconic in the world so it was no big surprise when Nike adapted the Roshe for the golf market and created a junior version.

It is certainly one of the new breed that sits as well off the course but the sole is still one that generates a lot of grip. Nobody quite does futuristic underbellies like Nike and this a classic example of a moulded spikeless grip that is total unique.

It is certainly a golf shoe for the summer but with that comes a large degree of comfort – the injected foam midsole does a great job in that respect – and it is also extremely lightweight.

Less than £40 for a junior golf shoe that’ll help youngsters channel their inner Rory McIlroy seems like a bargain to us.

Adidas CP Traxion Junior Golf Shoes

RRP £62.99 | VIEW OFFER
Sizes (UK): 3-6 | Colours: White

For those who like spikes, the CP Traxion is a must to consider. You have a sole packed with so much grip those ice golf tournaments suddenly don’t feel so ridiculous.

The upper has been engineered with adidas’ Climastorm protection system and the Bounce midsole is a great innovation, making this one of the most comfortable junior golf shoes.

You also get a Cloudfoam sockliner for extra padding underfoot while the Thintech EXP outsole ensures the Traxion lives up to its name.

Puma Fusion Evo shoes

RRP £59.99 | VIEW OFFER
Sizes (UK): 3-6 | Colours: Grey + White

This is definitely another kids’ golf shoe with a lot of sole. For those golfers who yearn for a bit of extra height, the FUSION EVO will give you a good couple of inches if nothing else.

The prominent lower portion is packed with Fusion Foam, an EVA foam midsole plus you also get a two-layered insole so no concerns re stability and comfort.

This junior golf shoe is not waterproof so definitely a spring-summer option but Puma have paid a lot of attention to maximising the fit. A PWRStrap fit nylon strap is designed to aid that on top of the orthodox laces. It means you get the shoe tight to your foot in just the right place and every golfer needs that.

If you’re a fan of Puma-wearing Bryson DeChambeau then these are the shoes for you.

Adidas S2G SL Junior Golf Shoes

RRP £44.99 | VIEW OFFER
Sizes (UK): 2-5.5 | Colours: Grey; White

It was only natural that one of the big players made junior golf shoes that look more like a trainer, and it’s one of the best kids’ golf shoes we’ve seen.

Traditionalists will hate them but the kids will love them, not least because they are so comfortable. On dry, summer fairways the adidas shoes will really come into their own.

But they are also sturdier than they look. The upper has been treated so it is waterproof and the V-Traxion outsole creates enough grip to cope with most under-foot conditions.
