Things We May Not Recognize When Looking for Golf Footwear

Recreation & Leisure,Hobbies,Sports
To begin with, if you do not play golf on a recurring basis, or even when you do, will you actually need to spend money on golf footwear? The response will be: absolutely yes. Like virtually all sport, the feet act as the base for all we do, and the shoes are part of that foundation. It really isn't a issue of style, but how it aids us in the way we participate in the game. As golfers we tend to put a lot of strain on our feet, as a result our golf shoes have to not just support our foot but additionally avert slipping in the course of the golf swing.

When buying a golf shoe, even before allowing for how comfortable it feels is the assistance it's going to offer for your foot. NBA basketball players break out new shoes every second game, as the stress they place on them will cause them to begin to lose support. And the team doesn't need a weakened shoe to cause an ankle injury for their high-priced talent.

Similarly, golf footwear breaks down. Consequently when we make the purchase we want to understand how acceptably they'll assist our foot in the rotating motion of the swing. A lot of golfers suffer from the common foot problem known as neuroma. It is essentially a pinched nerve on the bottom in the foot, and it will be caused by the weight transfer which repeatedly occurs when we turn and follow-through in the course of the swing. It's the job of the shoe to support the foot during the swing.

To check to be certain you get adequate support with those new shoes, test them out. Take the heel with some one hand and the toe for the shoe in the other. Now twist in opposite directions to test for firmness. An effective shoe is going to give just a small amount. If it is exceptionally flexible it will not support your foot appropriately.

Then, try on the shoe for comfort. A great deal of it will depend on the material that the footwear will be constructed from, going with the low end synthetic leather to calfskin leather on the high side. There are dissimilar leather grades in between, and the quality is going to be a decisive factor with the cost for the shoe. Waterproofing will factor in, and generally the superior quality shoes are going to keep the feet the driest. The label "water resistant" essentially means there is no waterproof guarantee whatsoever.

Finally, we are going to look at the spikes of the footwear. Metal spikes are basically a thing of the past, and when you have them there are not a lot of golf courses that will let you on their course using them. Plastics spikes are in, and the good thing is they do not tear up the ground. The difficult thing is they do not provide as much grip. But you must wear spikes, as without them it's like car tires without tread: You will get some slippage when it is dry and could fall and injure yourself when it is damp. Just keep in mind that plastic spikes will wear down quicker as opposed to the old metal variety, and it is imperative that you change them more often.

Wearing the best golf shoes you are willing to afford will help your total golf game. For more information and some great articles on your long game and your short game, check out and Jim O'Connell is a writer and golf enthusiast living in London.
