We proudly deliver a range of golf shoes in the form of all different types of shoes, including pairs which are spiked, spikeless, waterproof, water resistant, leather, synthetic leather and mesh designed. Our immeasurable lineup guarantees to improve any male golfer’s footwear wardrobe. This highly popular category includes numerous pairs of golf shoes situated across some of the leading golf shoe brands such as FootJoy, adidas Golf, PUMA Golf, ECCO, Skechers, Under Armour, Rife, Duca Del Cosma, Stromberg, Benross, Fazer, and Payntr.

American Golf provides multiple choices of various different styles, designs and patterns of male golf shoes in order to cater for each and every male footwear fashion desires. Within our male golf shoe lineup, each pair will instantly differ from including either a spiked or spikeless sole. A traditionally styled spiked pair of male golf shoes will feature rubber cleated spikes to provide maximum grip when gracing the hollow turf of the golf course. The spikeless shoe is more of a modern-day footwear choice as these occupy a moulded sole to provide the utmost comfort on the bottom of your feet, but still provide the much-required gripping factor. Regardless of the preferred sole choice we also offer the option of waterproof and water-resistant models; these can be suited to all weathers. Our lineup includes both waterproof spiked and spikeless pairs which are designed to be used all year round, whereas within the summer and sunnier times of the year, a spiked or spikeless, lightweight, casual and breathable water-resistant pair is the ideal choice of footwear.

Our wide range of male golf shoes features pairs constructed out of all different materials in order to meet the preferred choice of footwear requirements by any male golfer. In our premium selection of men’s golf shoes, the majority of pairs are made out of high-quality leather. Leather is naturally a more expensive component in all forms of shoes as this allows for maximum breathability, durability, comfort, protection, fit and it’s easy to clean nature. Synthetic leather shoes, on the other hand, retain their shape better than leather, are often more durable and more water resistant than leather shoes and at a fraction of the price. Mesh shoes are suited to dryer summer conditions as these are extremely lightweight and breathable but don’t offer any protection for cold, rainy and windy weathers. Spiked soles tend to be made firmly whereas the majority of spikeless soles are extremely flexible due to their bespoke rubber moulded design. Overall, our vast choice of shoes made out of all different materials provide males with the opportunity to identify the perfectly suited golf shoe to them.
Within our impressive lineup of men’s golf shoes, we provide golfers with a wide range of sizes to choose from and also depending on the make and model, a selection of different width fit options. Players can choose between either a regular or wide width fit to provide the utmost amount of comfort possible. We therefore provide a whole selection of sizes for each male pair of shoes as these include UK Men’s sizes 6.5, 6.5-7, 7, 7.5, 8, 8-8.5, 8.5, 9, 9.5, 9.5-10, 10, 10.5, 10.5-11, 11 and 12. With the availability of getting a pair which meets the perfect combination of length and width requirements, we ensure your feet attain the best possible comfort no matter what your foot dimensions are.

Men’s Golf Shoes Frequently Asked Questions
What are acceptable shoes for golf?
We’d always recommend you be fitted for men’s golf shoes if you’re a keen player. This isn’t to say that all clubhouses call for them, as some of the more accessible ranges will allow men’s golf trainers, running shoes, or smart trainers with hard plastic or rubber soles, but many will politely insist on them. Golf shoes are specifically designed for the sport, so they could also improve your game, comfort, and performance on the green as well as adhering to the clubhouse dress codes and regulations. Flashy fashion trainers, sandals, flip flops, and boots should not be worn on the golf course. If you’re a keen golf player, you’ll no doubt already be aware of the benefits that men’s golf shoes have to offer and so you should definitely purchase a pair for yourself.
What are golf shoes?
Golf shoes are a sports shoe designed to support the player during all aspects of their game. They incorporate design functions to aid balance, stability, and comfort, so every golfer stands to gain something from a quality pair of golf shoes.
To increase stability, men’s golf shoes have wide rubber soles to increase the surface area of the foot. This helps to keep you balanced whether you’re driving momentum for an approach on the fairway or need the added stability for a precision shot. Golf shoes come in different shapes and sizes, including spiked, cleated, grip-soled, and spikeless. Most golf courses today don’t allow for the old fashioned metal spiked golf shoes because they mark the green and leave blemishes but cleated and rubber gripped soles still allow for that rooted stability whilst following regulations.
Many golf shoes also have stabilisers built into the arches of the shoe that slide as the player swings. This allows you to maintain the proper technique, as the stabilisers in your shoes will naturally follow the shifting of your weight and the momentum of your shot.
Golf shoes have more padding than your average pair of trainers for added comfort. When you’re playing multiple holes and have dedicated an afternoon or a day to the green, you’re on your feet for multiple hours. This extra padding not only supports your feet for playing comfort, but also for walking between holes and provides added lumbar support.
Golf shoes and men’s golf trainers differ still, in that you’re encouraged to wear your trainers around the clubhouse and any time you’re not on the green. This is to protect your golf shoes and their grips because they’ll become worn down if they’re used to walk across concrete or flooring (and could damage the latter!). Having both men’s golf shoes and golf trainers means that you can play your best game on the green, but also change out of your shoes to clean them properly whilst wearing your trainers.
How to keep golf shoes waterproof
Keeping your golf shoes waterproof is imperative to enjoying a long and happy life with them. Waterproofing will naturally deteriorate over time, but you can prolong its lifespan by taking good care of them between games. This means drying them down with a towel immediately after playing to minimise any surface water damage and moisture seeping through before you can get them home.
Once you’re home and your shoes have already been towel-dried, use a soft bristled brush to remove dirt, soil, and grass from all surfaces. Pay close attention to the sole of the shoes here too, taking time to get in between the grooves and moulds. Next, use a waterproof shoe cleaner or sealant – depending on the brand of your golf shoe there may be a specific product to use in tandem – and rub it in with a clean rag. Leave them to air dry before storing them again.
Are golf shoes the same size as regular shoes?
When shopping for golf shoes, start by looking around your regular shoe size. However, we would always recommend getting fitted for a pair of men’s golf shoes, because every brand and every model of shoe is created differently. For example, adidas Golf shoes are a reputable brand, as are FootJoy golf shoes, but both will follow slightly different design specs in material, width, forgivability, and size. Be prepared to go up or down half a size, or even a full size, when you’re shopping for golf shoes.
If you know what you’re looking for, feel free to browse and shop online, but if you need a golf shoe fitting we’d recommend you find your nearest American Golf store where one of our on-hand golf experts can help you find the right men’s golf shoe for you.
How to care for golf shoes
It’s highly important you clean your golf shoes after every game, because the better you look after them then the longer they’re likely to last you. Before you begin to clean their uppers, the synthetic fabric or leather, you need to remove all dirt and grass from the soles. This includes getting into all of the grooves and folds of the spikes, moulded grips, or cleats.
If your golf shoes aren’t waterproof and they get wet on the course, dry them off as soon as you finish your game. Do this by towel-drying the outside of the shoes and placing newspaper bundles on the inside to soak up the excess moisture. Leave the newspaper to work for between 8-10 hours and then remove when they feel suitably dry. Swap out the bundles of newspaper with fresh paper as necessary.
For men’s leather golf shoes, take your time with the appropriate cleaning solution or leather treatment to keep them supple. Should you not have any leather crème, wipe them clean with a gentle soap and water. The same can be done for golf shoes with synthetic uppers. If you have leather soles, you should follow the same cleaning ritual and apply a leather oil to keep them firm.
Men’s white golf shoes can show scuffs very easily, so if you want to keep them looking sharp you need to use a white shoe crème. Lightly rub this into the leather to remove scuff marks and other impurities. Men’s black golf shoes also need a similar treatment, but for this you’ll need a darker or black-based shoe crème to maintain them, using a similar approach as you would to regular shoe polish.
Once you’ve cleaned your shoes, it’s vital you don’t simply put them away again. Let them air-dry in an open and well-ventilated space so they don’t retain any residual moisture. Packing them away before they are dry could lead to incubating the moisture and damaging the materials, so always leave them to stand for a good few hours before putting them in your shoe bag.
When you do come to storing your men’s golf shoes, and even just your men’s golf trainers, use a shoe tree. This will help them to keep their shape between uses. When you go to put them on again, use a shoehorn. It’s a simple little trick to keep the shoes strong without bending or creasing their heels.
