The Best Waterproof Golf Shoes will keep your stance solid and your feet warm and dry – whatever weather you face this winter.
If you’re lucky enough to play your golf on a links course that stays fairly dry all year round then you may get away with wearing your favourite spikeless golf shoes throughout the whole winter. For most of us, though, a decent pair of waterproof spiked golf shoes are an absolute necessity for enjoying winter golf in the UK.

If you play regularly on a muddy parkland track, a pair of winter boots are well worth consideration, if you can get over the slightly unusual look.
Whichever winter golf shoe you go for, a longer waterproof guarantee gives you greater reassurance that your shoes will keep you dry for longer. A one-year waterproof guarantee is fairly standard, but some manufacturers offer two years.

Admittedly golf boots aren't going to win any prizes for looks, but if you’re fed up of dew and damp seeping over the top of your golf shoes and making your socks wet, having a boot covering your ankle can be a revelation (or you could, y'know, just stop hitting your ball into the long grass...)
Three major brands now make golf boots, which says everything you need to know about the category being a thriving market in the UK.
