In my humble opinion, one of the most important bits of kit to get right.
It’s no good spending $500 on a driver and $2000 on a set of irons if your feet are in agony for four hours!
Even if you can’t afford to pay top dollar for golf shoes at least spend some time finding a pair that fit you correctly.
Getting the correct width is just as important as picking the right shoe size. Unfortunately finding wide-fitting shoes is even harder than finding normal shoes in wide fittings.
Most manufacturers produce new models on a pretty regular basis which means there are usually deep discounts to be found on golf shoes if you are prepared to do a little searching.
