Fore!  Golf season is finally here after our unpredictable winter.  You may need to get new golf shoes before heading out to Casperkill Country Club, McCann Golf Course in Poughkeepsie, or the Beekman Golf Course in Hopewell Junction.  However, choosing your next pair of golf shoes is not as easy as you would think.  Hollowbrook Foot Specialists would like to offer you a few suggestions to get you back in the game.

Choosing Your Next Pair of Golf Shoes

Tips for Choosing Your Next Pair of Golf Shoes

  • Get fitted for your new golf shoes at the end of the day.  Everyone’s feet swell a little bit throughout the day.
  • Have a salesperson measure both of your feet.  Most people have one foot that is larger than the other.  You want to buy shoes that fit the larger foot.
  • There should be ½ inch of space between your toes and the tip of the shoes.
  • Always try the shoes on.  There can be a difference in sizes between brands.  Bring the type of socks that you plan on wearing with the shoes to try on with the shoes.
  • Buy for comfort.  Even if you rent a cart, you will still be doing a good bit of walking.
  • Make sure the shoe is lightweight.
  • While holding the shoe at the heel and at the toes, twist in opposite directions.  You shouldn’t have a lot of rotation in a golf shoe.
  • When choosing your next pair of golf shoes, find out about the courses policy for spikes. Most clubs have banned metal spikes.  If you plan on buying shoes with the soft spikes, you might want to get replaceable spikes so the shoes last longer.

Choosing Your Next Pair of Golf Shoes: But I Got The Best!!!

Even with really good golf shoes, your foot may still need better support.  Dr. David Schlam is an expert in making shoe inserts (orthotics) that are specially measured to your foot.  If you begin to notice heel pain, swelling, redness, or bruising after a day out on the course, you should come in for an appointment.  We want to help you lower your handicap by being able to play pain free.  Schedule an appointment with us online or by calling (845) 298 – 9074.
