Golf Sandals for Men

By Steve Silverman

Golf sandals are a relatively new development that makes for a cooler and less oppressive game when golfers play in intense heat. Instead of wearing heavy golf shoes and thick socks, golfers can wear sandals that supply excellent support and allow them to dig into the ground and hit the ball without slipping.

FootJoy CoolJoys

The FootJoy CoolJoys are a great innovation for golfers who get tired of wearing heavy shoes in hot and humid summer conditions. With two Velcro straps and open toes, golfers are significantly cooler than playing partners who wear heavier golf shoes. While the open toes can put the golfer at some risk if he has to walk into the woods to look for errant shots, many believe the benefits of playing in a strong and supportive sandal outweigh the risks.

Bite Mens X

The Bite Mens X sandals provide a sense of cool and comfort for golfers who want to escape heat and humidity. Golfers get support from the leather upper straps and the cushion soles. The golf sandals also include plastic spikes that keep the golfer from slipping in the bunker or on wet fairways.

Reef Mens

The Reef sandal is a stretch for golfers who have been wearing golf shoes throughout their whole careers. These look more like beach sandals and are best in extreme heat for coastal courses. It has a molded rubber outer sole, and the upper is all leather. It comes with detachable spikes that can be changed according to course circumstances.
