FootJoy Premiere Series-Packard
- High stability and structure
- Full-grain leather upper
- Timeless look
FootJoy will forever be at the top of the best golf shoes for pros. Among them: Tiger Woods, who wore these shoes at the 2022 Masters. It’s a pointed move, given the GOAT only wore Nike on the links. But after his recent car wreck, he needed a shoe that was “more stable” an opted for the Premiere Series-Packard, which has an OrthoLite footbed that’s plush and secure to offer all-day-long comfort. If it’s good enough for Tiger, it’s good enough for us.

Best Bang for Your Buck
- Super affordable
- Made with full-grain leather
The Original G is a staple in the world of golf shoes. They’re uber-affordable, which is great in case you trash them during a bad day at the links, you can order another pair for less than a c-note. One downside is they don’t feature prominent spikes—PUMA instead equips the shoe with rubber knobs along the outsole. The upside is the shoe stays low and flat to the ground, which makes it easier to stay connected through your swing.

Jordan ADG 4
- Responsive traction
- Great design
Michael Jordan loves golf, so it’s a no brainer why there are multiple Jordan sneakers made for the fairway. This one takes inspiration from the Jordan Retro 4 while offering a lean, sleek silhouette.
TRUE linkswear is still building up its name in the golf world, and it already has a solid reputation. Its Knit II is an easy-to-put-on trainer with a minimalist design ala Allbirds. The kicks have a such a great look you can get away with wearing them for more casual settings, too.
Adidas’ bestselling golf shoe has all the latest technology. The cleat is equipped with 360Wrap support that locks and supports your feet through all 18 holes. Meanwhile Its SPIKEMORE traction and six-spike TPU outsole guarantee you won’t ever have problems slipping in the rain. And perhaps the most exciting feature is the double stacked BOOST midsole for supreme cushioning. Yes, it’s expensive, but in this instance, you get what you paid for.
The Fresh Foam Contend is a wallet-friendly golf shoe that offers solid cushioning and stylish design. Some highlights of the Contend include its Fresh Foam technology (a staple in NB’s running shoes) as well as its breathable performance mesh upper. We also like the fact the shoe comes in multiple colors.
