Here are eight sets of kicks that make a fashion statement, provide solid footing for your swing and keep your dogs from barking all the way through the 18th hole. And, at $100 or less, they won’t break the bank. Find one to suit your style and swing.
ADIDAS ADICROSS V
The stylish, street-ready shoe has a water-resistant leather and suede upper so you can play in peace during foul-weather days. Extra cushioning under the sock liner adds spring in your step, while the flexible, spikeless outsole has 72 lugs for added gripping power.
This lightweight, EVA slip-on shoe makes you feel like you’re walking barefoot. Cutout holes in the upper let air circulate; the dual-density, shock-absorbing innersole has small nodes for added comfort; and hexagon-shaped nubs provide traction. Make a statement with eye-catching wingtip, saddle, and pattern styles.
ECCO CASUAL HYBRID II
A hundred molded traction bars along the outsole create more than 800 angles for better grip. The spikeless shoe has a water-resistant leather upper and can be worn on or off the course. This marked-down shoe is available in limited quantities; act quickly to reserve a pair in the size and color (navy, grey, or dark grey) you desire.
NEW BALANCE 1701
These sporty duds are built to last with the company’s proprietary durable “Ndurance” rubber outsole. An EVA foam midsole and water-resistant microfiber leather upper keep feet comfortable in all kinds of conditions, while seven Champ Slim-Lok cleats supply stability during the swing.
FOOTJOY CONTOUR CASUAL
One of the most versatile shoes in the company’s lineup, the Contour Casual combines a soft, waterproof full grain leather upper with a lightweight cushioned fit-bed for all day comfort. An anatomically engineered last allows your feet to move naturally during the swing, while rubber lugs on the outsole provide traction.
PUMA GRIP SPORT
A lightweight, responsive foam midsole combines with a breathable mesh upper to keep your feet happy on hot, sticky days. A thin polyurethane coating on the lower half of the toe box repels dew and increases durability as well. Wear them from the links to the street — traction lugs on the outsole let you make the transition with ease.
NIKE AIR RIVAL 4
Five Champ spikes combine with rubber traction elements to provide grip during the golf swing, even on the slipperiest of days. The lightweight synthetic upper also features a waterproof treatment to help protect feet, while lightweight cushioning with Phylon adds pep in your step.
SKECHERS GO GOLF BIONIC 2
A minimal difference in height (4 mm) between the heel and toe combines with a flexible outsole to encourage a neutral posture and natural footwork during the swing. A waterproof synthetic upper with a soft fabric lining helps your feet feel good during the round, and more than 100 traction bars in the sole keep you connected to the ground.
