JUMP TO YOUR PREFERRED BUDGET:
Ecco Biom G3
£210 | gb.ecco.com
The Ecco Biom G3 is the premium golf shoe. This is another super-high-spec golf shoe from the Danish brand and we love it.
The G3’s soft Yak leather upper is supple but durable, while the Gore-Tex membrane ensures feet stay dry in the rain but don't get too hot in the heat.
The sole has eight Zarma Tour spikes which combine with hybrid cleats to offer exceptional grip and stability.
Expensive, yes, but worth it for the style and performance if your budget can stretch.
G3 come with a one-year waterproof guarantee.

FootJoy Tour X
£179 | www.footjoy.co.uk
Nine ‘Launch Pods’ on the sole of Footjoy’s Tour X create a solid and stable platform to produce power from the ground up. A top-quality Pittards leather upper gives a real premium and durable feel, but there’s only a one-year waterproof guarantee.
£170 | www.underarmour.co.uk
It’s been great to see Jordan Spieth’s return to form in 2021 as he’s been an integral part of Under Armour’s golf business for years. The Spieth 5 golf shoes are available in spiked and spikeless versions, and are the shoe worn by the three-time Major winner himself. Breathable microfibre uppers come with a two-year waterproof guarantee.

adidas Tour360 XT
£159.95 | www.adidas.co.uk
adidas Tour360 shoes have built up a massive following over the past decade, and they’re a firm favourite on tour with the likes of Dustin Johnson.
The XT's eight-cleat sole provides enhanced traction and grip in all conditions, while the full-length Boost soles and internal cushion pads ensure you'll have energy and be in comfort throughout the round.
The leather uppers are waterproof, durable and breathable, and the shoe comes with a one-year waterproof guarantee.

FootJoy Premiere Series
If you still hanker after a favourite pair of FootJoy Classics, the Premiere Series will be right up your street. Available in both spiked and spikeless models, they’re the absolute best that FootJoy have to offer in 2021.
The headline shoe from adidas for 2021, and you’ll have seen them worn by Xander Schauffele this year. Inspired by tour player feedback, its major sell is being 20% lighter than previous adidas tour-level models. Also available as a laceless BOA version.
Skechers Go Golf Pro V.4
Skechers have always made some really comfortable golf shoes that can be relied on for comfort as soon as they come out of the box. We like the Pro V.4’s traditional leather upper, which is easier to maintain than some lighter synthetic uppers. A waterproof membrane means your feet won’t get wet, and there’s a lightweight, responsive sole that makes walking more than 18 holes more of a pleasure than a chore.
Under Armour Hovr Drive
A great year-round option for golf in the UK. The Gore-Tex membrane is waterproof and breathable, energy returning soles keep your feet fresh for longer, while the Rotational Resistance spikes are also great for golfers who use the ground to create force and speed in their swing.
Puma Ignite Proadapt Delta
It’s all very well having a stiff, stable shoe, but if it doesn’t flex to the contours of your lie then you’re giving up grip. No matter what the terrain, the ProAdapt will flex to the ground’s shape. We like the cuff around the top of the shoes, which brilliantly hugs the ankle.
Puma Ignite PWRADAPT Caged
£130 | www.cobragolf.co.uk
The Puma Caged help minimise power loss as they lock the foot into the shoe.
The multi-material upper and cuff give a really personal fit and interactive feel, the energy-returning Ignite soles are super comfortable too.
This is Bryson DeChambeau's golf shoe of choice. Unfortunately it doesn't come with any guarantees of achieving his distance, but does come with a one-year waterproof guarantee.
Consider ordering a half-a-size lower due to a long fit.

Under Armour HOVR Matchplay
£120 | www.underarmour.co.uk
With energy-returning soles being hot right now, UA have developed the HOVR mid-sole to help eliminate impact shock.
A microfibre upper option and Gore-Tex membrane are very impressive and we're huge fans of the styling and generous two-year waterproof guarantee.
RELATED: Best Winter Golf Balls
Adidas are doing more than almost any other brand to go green, which means the leather upper S2G is made from a minimum of 50% recycled materials. Unusually there’s only four sole cleats, but plenty of traction lugs give a lightweight and stable feel.
Skechers Go Golf Torque Twist
£99 | www.skechers.com
Always great value for money, Skechers’ laceless Torque Twist feature a synthetic upper and are roomy, super lightweight and incredibly comfortable.
They come with a twist closure system to create the perfect fit, low profile 'Stealth' cleats and a one-year waterproof guarantee.
£84.99 | www.adidas.co.uk
The full-grain leather upper is waterproof and includes the adidas Superstar's classic rubber shell toe, distinct 3-Stripes in the midfoot, and prominent “Superstar” name in gold foil lettering.
Six cleats and secondary lugs to the outsole provide traction and stability, while style is a given from this iconic shoe. Comes with a one-year waterproof guarantee.

The Mulligan are a lovely waterproof and breathable mid-priced option, perfect if you don’t want to spend a fortune on new shoes.
RELATED: Best Golf Polo Shirts
£74.99 | www.americangolf.co.uk
Though new to the shoe market, if you know the name Rife it’s because the brand built hi-tech milled putters before American Golf took control of the company.
