The Best Golf Shoes for Men

By Steve Silverman

The best golf shoes provide comfort and support to golfers who walk 18 holes on a regular basis. The first thing a golfer must look for is comfort. Wearing shoes that fit incorrectly will cause blisters. If you get a blister on the fourth hole, good luck trying to finish your round. Golfers also want support from their shoes when they dig into a bunker or have to take an awkward stance to hit a shot in the rough. Here are some outstanding brands.

Mens' Etonic Dry Essentials

These shoes have a leather upper and a hydroguard waterproof membrane that protect the golfer in the rain or wet conditions. They also have a shock-absorbing insole and a two-year warranty.
