2021 Shoe Guide
The best men's golf shoes of 2021
Xander Schauffele, the No. 5-ranked player in the world, tests his golf shoes with the same vigor as he does his golf clubs. “If I hit a few shots with a club that I don’t like, I toss it out. Same thing with my shoes,” he says. “If I slip once or feel looseness in the heel or lateral motion, it’s done.”
If tour pros choose their shoes with such care, perhaps you should, too. The good news? With so many options, you don’t have to sacrifice style or function.
Here are the best men's golf shoes of 2021.

With its cleated outsoles and leather upper, this is the most traditional-looking shoe in Cuater's line. The lightweight midsole adds comfort, and the waterproof treatment to the upper will keep your feet from getting wet when you're out dew-sweeping or playing in the rain.
If you want a classic-looking golf shoe with modern technology, the Premiere Series is for you. The outsole features spikes and traction elements of varied firmness to give you grip on different types of lies. Also available with BOA lacing instead of standard lacing.
The heel was made slightly wider in this version of the ProSL to make the shoe more stable. The nearly 200 traction points improve stability during the swing, too. So much so, that this spikeless option is trusted by tour players. The carbon version has a piece of carbon at the midsole that runs the length of the shoe, again adding stability.
This style is a reimagined version of the shoe Johnston & Murphy was known for back in the 1920s. The modern updates include a waterproof leather upper and traction elements on the outsole to allow you to wear them seamlessly off the course.
