Wearing proper golf shoes is very important to your foot health. The "old fashioned" golf shoes were wing-tip oxfords with spikes. Golf shoes today are designed more like athletic footwear. Some even incorporate such innovations as graphite shank reinforcements, which keep them light and add strength.
Choose golf shoes as if you were choosing shoes for taking a good long walk. Ensure that your golf shoes fit well in the store before purchasing them.
If you already wear special inserts, orthotics, in your street shoes, transfer them to your golf shoes. Some special shoe inserts are designed specifically for golf shoes and will be different than those designed for street shoes.
If a round of golf leads to painful feet, check the quality of your shoes. Persistent pain even after choosing proper golf shoes means you should visit our office.
