Masters 2022: Our favorite Augusta-inspired golf shoes
Masters week is finally upon us, and that means brands are releasing Augusta National-inspired gear left and right. From an Adidas x Waffle House collaboration to a Puma pattern that reflects the unpredictable weather in Augusta, golf companies get creative around this time of year. These five Masters themed shoes — some of which release in limited quantities later this week — will help get you ready for the first major of the year and maybe even inspire your game post-Masters.

adidasTOUR360 22 x Waffle House Limited-Edition Golf Shoes
Dropping on Thursday, April 7, these Adidas x Waffle House Tour 360's use a unique waffle texture to celebrate the famous Georgia-bred dining experience. The illusion of syrup dripping down the bottom of the shoe, the Waffle House logo on the heel, and a batter-like colorway are just some details of this creative Masters week collaboration.

Puma ProAdapt Alphacat Gust O Wind Golf Shoes
As part of Puma’s Masters-inspired collection, the new spikeless Proadapt Alphacat Model has been revamped with an intricate swirling cloud pattern. Inspired by the ever-changing weather conditions at Augusta National, this style is just one of the items in Puma’s “A Gust O’ Wind Collection” that released on April 4, 2022. The white and green colorway is also fitting for the first major of the year.
Nike Air Max 90 G Golf Shoes
According to Nike, this new Air Max 90 colorway was inspired by “a legendary golf course.” Dropping at 10:00 am on April 5, we think we can guess which major championship venue gave rise to these shoes. With integrated traction, a Max Air unit in the heel, and a foam midsole, these Augusta-themed Air Max 90’s are a perfect option for the golfer who wants a light-weight, sneaker-like shoe.
Johnston & Murphy XC4® H1-Luxe Hybrid
Johnston & Murphy’s newest Masters-inspired golf shoe features a rich hunter green leather, with a subtle azalea design etched into the outsole. The H1-Luxe model is equipped with waterproof technology, a spikeless turf-hugging sole design, and enhanced cushioning for added comfort and stability. This special edition design is a great option for any Masters fan who values a well-structured golf shoe.
Although not a Masters-specific line, Steve Madden’s new women’s golf shoe collection dropped just before the Masters. As part of a collaboration with Jena Sims, Brooks Koepka’s fiancé, the line includes several trendy, sneaker-like golf shoe options with light colors and fun prints. All of the styles use rubber spikeless traction and can transition seamlessly from the golf course to brunch and beyond.
