The summer golf season is almost upon us. We have wiled away those winter months catching up on the golf from far-flung sunny destinations on TV. We have worked on a few drills at home or at the driving range that we want to bring into our game for golf days and club competitions. Or we have kept playing on cold and damp days, dreaming of firm fairways and slick greens. But now it’s time to shed those woolly hats and winter mittens (fingers crossed!), loosen our shoulders and get golfing.

But to top off the start of the summer, why not treat ourselves to a new pair of golf shoes? Let’s look good and feel good as our golfing activity increases. Here at AMERICAN GOLF, we have picked out some of the best golf shoes available from all the leading brands. Read on and see which one ticks the boxes to get us golf-ready for summer 2024.

Top Golf Shoes 2024

Under Armour Men’s Charged Phantom (£69.99):

Under Armour Men’s Charged Phantom

Sizes available: 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12

Spiked or Spikeless: SPIKELESS

Under Armour Golf has become a big player in the golfing apparel market in the last decade and their golf shoes are certainly worthy of our attention. In the same way that Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy have become synonymous with Nike, then Jordan Spieth is Mr Under Armour and it’s easy to picture him in a pair of shoes like these at The Open at Royal Liverpool later this summer.

With a good range of sizes, three great colour options (white/blue/black) and a very good price, these shoes are comparable with any of the other best golf shoes of 2024. The Charged Phantom shoe is all about being weather-resistant and comfortable and for any golfer who plays in the UK, it is hard to look beyond those two characteristics.

Under Armour Men's Medal RST Waterproof (£59.99):

Sizes available: 7, 8, 9, 10, 11

Spiked or Spikeless: SPIKED

Another Under Armour golf shoe and another one of the best golf shoes on the market. Customers have been thrilled with these shoes with comments ranging from looking good and feeling comfortable to being great value for money, something that is especially important in the current economic climate.

With four potential colours, we are spoilt for choice depending on our preference for a light or dark golf shoe, while the carefully positioned spikes offer more traction and stability to those of us golfers who want the guarantee and confidence that a spiked shoe gives us. There is also a moulded midsole to soak up any pressure on our feet as we exert ourselves during the golf swing.

Skechers Men's GO GOLF Torque Victorious Waterproof (£99.99):

Skechers Men's GO GOLF Torque Victorious Waterproof

Sizes available: 7, 8, 9, 10, 11

Spiked or Spikeless: SPIKED

Skechers are renowned for producing comfortable footwear and they do not disappoint with these Torque Victorious shoes. Having removable rubber spikes (cleats) allows for excellent grip in any kind of conditions and the latest in insole technology should ensure that we don’t get tired walking for hours in these shoes. That fact has been emphasised by customers who have already bought this item, with comfort top of the compliments they have.

The colours of navy, and white with touches of black, make this look like a stylish shoe with the famous ‘S’ nicely positioned on the heel and a stand-out as one of the best choices for a golf shoe in 2024.

New Balance Men's Fresh Foam Contend Waterproof Spikeless (£69.99):

New Balance Men's Fresh Foam Contend Waterproof Spikeless

Sizes available: 7.5, 8.5, 9.5, 10.5, 11.5

Spiked or Spikeless: SPIKELESS

Some are proclaiming this as the ‘ultimate walking shoe’, as the people at New Balance have applied all their expertise into designing this golf shoe, one of the best golf shoes on the market.

There is certainly an element of style to their design, however, as it comes in three snazzy colour combinations; grey and charcoal, navy and red and white with blue and red trim because golfers don’t just want to feel comfortable, they want to make sure other people notice how good New Balance golf shoes look! And with these being spikeless, they are perfect for using away from the course. The Fresh Foam midsole reinforces the feeling of ultra comfort inside the shoe, the durable rubber outsole offers long-lasting traction and the combination of microfibre leather and performance mesh provides the waterproof resistance.

FootJoy Men's Fuel Sport Waterproof Spikeless (£109.99):

FootJoy Men's Fuel Sport Waterproof Spikeless

Sizes available: 7, 8, 9, 10, 11

Spiked or Spikeless: SPIKELESS

Another offering from FootJoy and another excellent choice as one of the best golf shoes to have. There is a pronounced athletic profile to the shoe as they have gone for a combination of performance allied to style. The outsole has increased stability to allow us a stable grip on any surface and the patented ‘Stability Bridge’ offers ideal mid-foot support during the rigours of a golf swing.

Given these are spikeless shoes, they can be worn away from the course if grabbing a coffee or going out for lunch. FootJoy golf shoes are known for being one of the best golf shoes and they still have more of a resemblance to a golf shoe than some of the other more trainer-like designs. Predominantly white, we can add a dash of colour to our shoes by opting for one of a navy heel, a lime green trim and outsole or a striking pink and blue outsole.

Adidas Men's ZG23 Waterproof (£99.99):

Adidas Men's ZG23 Waterproof

Sizes available: 7, 8, 9, 10, 11

Spiked or Spikeless: SPIKED

Adidas golf is a well-established brand in golf shoes and their offering as one of the best golf shoes for 2024 is all about lightweight performance. The upper part of the shoe has been designed with a lightweight laminated synthetic material to reduce the weight but still keep our feet dry. While the six low-profile spikes offer us the traction and stability we need to perform our golf swing without any problems.

Predominantly white shoes, the only colour decision is whether to opt for a blue, silver or orange trim around the legendary three stripes. Fellow golfers will not need to guess which make we have chosen to wear as the German sports manufacturers remain one of the go-to names in golf.

FootJoy Men's Pro SL Waterproof Spikeless Golf Shoes (£109.99):

Sizes available: 7.5, 8.5, 9.5, 10.5, 11.5

Spiked or Spikeless: SPIKELESS

As a company, Footjoy has a reputation for great golf shoes and they have applied those skills here to produce the FootJoy Pro SL Waterproof Spikeless Golf Shoes . This looks like a walking shoe and if nothing else, a round of golf is a great walk in lovely surroundings!

Available in 5 different colourway combination, the shoe is designed to give comfort, stability and traction as if we walking over different types of terrain. Full-Grain leather is lightweight, thin, durable, and completely waterproof. The shoe has a new perimeter weighted outsole for increased stability and a spikeless traction system that offers superb grip on any surface.

Nike Air Pegasus 89 G Waterproof Spikeless Golf Shoes £109.95

in 1984 Nike got into golf with clothing and shoes and they continued with the release of the Nike Air Pegasus 89 G Waterproof Spikeless Golf Shoes. Fully waterproof golf shoe melds the vintage vibes of yesteryear with game-breaking golf technology for an everlasting look on the links

Available in 4 different silhouettes with synthetic leather overlays combined with stretch skin and mesh, to make for an elevated level of defense against the elements.
