Spikeless golf shoes have gone from something scoffed at by serious golfers not too long ago to being the preferred choice of amateurs and tour pros alike. That’s because the latest spikeless golf shoes offer grip that can match, if not beat, spiked golf shoes, while being incredibly comfortable and lightweight.

The majority of spikeless golf shoes are now also waterproof, meaning they can be worn all year round (even in the British summer).
Here’s our pick of the best spikeless golf shoes for 2021:
Skechers Go Golf Arch Fit
RRP £89 | skechers.com
The chunky Arch Fit soles are designed with podiatrist-certified arch support, which makes them a great fit for anyone, but particularly golfers who suffer with their feet.
They are designed with a water-repellent upper and a Goodyear Performance Outsole for traction, stability and durability.
Skechers say the hook-and-loop laces give a very personalised fit. Available in black and white or grey, they're great value for money, too.
adidas Tour 360 XT-SL Textile
RRP £140 | adidas.co.uk
Knitted textile shoes are a huge trend in golf right now. While some are soft and squidgy and offer little or no support, the SLs are built on adidas’ brilliant Tour360 platform. Expect all day comfort and grip, even in wet conditions.

Ecco Biom H4
RRP £159.99 | ecco.com
Ecco’s Biom shoes have a dedicated following thanks to being based on the shape of thousands of pairs of scanned and analysed feet. Expect a cracking comfy fit, and thanks to the Gore-Tex membrane, your feet will breathe and be dry. We love the durability of the perforated leather upper.

£159.99 | FootJoy.co.uk
A classically styled leather spikeless shoe which comes with a one-year waterproof guarantee. FootJoy say the heavily textured sole is great for getting grip no matter what the conditions are like, or the angle of your feet on the grass.

RRP £89 | puma.com
Puma love pushing the boundaries of what’s acceptable in golf, and the RS-G’s modern trainer look (inspired by a 1980s Puma classic) will divide opinion; you’ll either love them or hate them.
Incorporating the same, bold, chunky silhouette as the sportstyle version, the RS-G’s reengineered upper is seam-sealed and completely waterproof, with microfibre leather and TPU skin that delivers protection from the elements, keeping your feet dry all day long.
Available in Vaporous Gray/Thyme/Pureed Pumpkin; White/Quiet Shade/Quarry; and Black/Quiet Shade/Dark Shadow, we found them to be supremely comfortable and they’re great value.

Under Armour Spieth 5
£160 | underarmour.co.uk
The shoe that Jordan Spieth has been wearing since his game’s taken a massive upturn at the start of the year.
The Clarino microfibre uppers are lightweight and breathable for long-lasting comfort with a waterproof membrane keeping your feet dry. UA's HOVR technology supports natural foot movement with energy return while the 3D-moulded footbed improves the fit and reduces risk of slipping.
It's also a cracking-looking shoe.

RRP £159 | gfore.com
The Gallivanter is G/Fore’s all-time classic model and combines an athletic fit with a 100% waterproof premium leather upper.
The rippled inner sole lets air circulate around your foot and the ultra lightweight sole couples with a bespoke cleat design for optimal on-course traction. We’ve always found they give a really low profile and interactive feel with the ground.
The Gallivanter includes a washable and anti-microbial, triple density foam cushion footbed and is available in Snow/Twilight, Snow/Charcoal and Onyx.

RRP £129.95 | adidas.co.uk
The CodeChaos shoe was a big hit on tour last year for adidas and the modern-looking model is still going strong in 2021.
It’s one of the lightest shoes available, features adidas’ famous Boost technology with Torsion X stability bar and is completely waterproof thanks to a very fine film that wraps around the mesh of the shoe.
Available in grey, white and black, this darker colourway will work year-round in the UK. One of the best spikeless golf shoes we’ve worn.

Callaway Apex Pro Knit
£119.99 | callawaygolf.com
The Apex Pro Knit combine a modern and very stylish knitted upper, which moulds brilliantly to your foot, with classic, timeless brogue styling.
The design does an excellent job of preventing lateral slippage during the swing, which can be an issue with some of the more relaxed fitting spikeless golf shoes.
The Callaway Apex Pro Knit are lightweight and highly breathable, meaning your foot will stay cool and dry. They come in black, grey and navy and have a one-year waterproof warranty.

Payntr X 001 F
RRP £119.99 | payntr.com
Brand new to golf, Payntr made their name in cricket with former pro David Paynter behind the brand.
We like the lightweight construction and really stylish looks of the 001 F, which Payntr say has been designed to enhance traction, give holistic comfort and deliver explosive propulsion.
The X 001 F is waterproof, comes in white, cool grey or anthracite black and will be available direct to consumers from the PAYNTR Golf website.

Duca del Cosma Eldorado
RRP £179.95 | ducadelcosma.com
Lots of golfers like the idea of spikeless shoes but aren’t fans of trainer-style looks. The waterproof Eldorado looks and feels like a traditional golf shoe; soft Italian leather makes them a joy to wear, while the memory foam leather insole moulds to your feet.
Available in white/brown/red, black/brown and white/blue/cognac, the Eldorado provides the sort of class you come to expect from Duca del Cosma’s shoes.

Rife RF-02 Blade
RRP £64.99 | americangolf.co.uk
Rife are only available at American Golf, but we reckon if you’re after a comfy pair of spikeless shoes for playing on hard-baked summer turf, you’ll struggle to beat the Blade on value for money.
The High-Density Micro PU upper provides long-lasting durability and 100% waterproof protection from the elements, guaranteed for one year.
The Rife has a low profile phylon midsole for high-rebound cushioning and stability, while a specifically moulded EVA insole provides maximum walking comfort.
