Sizes: 6.5-11
Colours: 5 (Black, White/Green, White/Orange, Grey, White/Black)

+ Super comfy and provides excellent grip
+ Lots of performance for the price
– Colours aren’t for everyone but there is plenty of choice here

One of the best Adidas golf shoes in the current range, the Codechaos shoe has been designed for those looking to differentiate themselves on the golf course. The upper is made of a multi layer mesh, making it lightweight, flexible and breathable. It also has a thin film on top that provides waterproof protection, durability and it repels water and debris so it doesn’t stain and is easy to clean. Additionally, full length Boost cushioning features across the entire midsole, creating energy rebound and putting a spring in your step.

Nike Air Zoom Infinity Tour Shoes

Sizes: 7-12
Colours: 7 (White/Blue, Black, White/Black, White/Yellow, Black/Pink, White/Grey, Grey/Light Blue)

+ Outstanding stability, grip and comfort
+ Good colour choice
– Unusual floppy tongue and very snug around the heel

The Nike Infinity Tour shoes were inspired by Brooks Koepka‘s habit of chipping and putting in Nike running shoes, and as such they are designed to provide speed and comfort to golfers, leveraging maximum energy return from the ground up. Nike borrowed design inspiration from other sports (running, basketball) to create a golf shoe that is as comfortable as they come, and yet still gives stability, weather protection and also look great too.

FootJoy Pro/SL Carbon Shoes

Sizes: 6-14
Colours: 2 (White and Black)

+ Exceptional all-round performance
+ Leads the way when it comes to spikeless grip and stability
– Carbon model makes the standard Pro/SL a little redundant

For 2020, FootJoy has reinvented the immensely popular Pro/SL shoe and also added an even more stable version in the form of the Pro/SL Carbon. They look very similar but the Carbon version has a carbon fibre inlay integrated into the midsole running along the entire length of the shoe. In short FootJoy has somehow taken the most popular spikeless shoe in the world and made it more comfortable, offer better grip and improved the stability.

Ecco S-Three Shoes

Ecco s-three

Sizes: 6.5-12.5
Colours: 3 (White, White/Grey, Grey)

+ Stylish and extremely comfortable
+ Ample grip from different lies and protection from the elements
– Price could be a stumbling block for some

This is one of the most comfortable shoes Ecco has ever made which therefore makes it one of the best Ecco golf shoes ever as well. This comfort comes from the new Zonal Fluidform Technology, which creates a moulded midsole with three distinct zones of softness to ensure the right balance of cushioning and stability exactly where you need it. We also like the modern but sophisticated styling because it strikes a very likeable balance between the two.

adidas Tour360 XT Shoes

Best Golf Shoes 2020

Sizes: 6.5-12.5
Colours: 3 (White, White/Grey, Grey)

+ Grip performance hard to beat
+ One of the best looking shoes out there
– Require wearing in

You will probably find it hard to find a shoe that looks as good as the Tour360 XT from adidas, but it doesn’t skimp on performance either. Thanks to the X-shaped traction system and eight cleats, the shoe provides good multi-directional grip and create a stable base for your stance and feet. We also love the combination of the predominantly leather uppers and clean toe section with the modern Boost cushioning underneath.

Puma Ignite Pwradapt Caged Shoes

Sizes: 7-15
Colours: 4 (Black, Grey, White, Blue)

+ Stylish and very comfortable
+ Excellent grip from a variety of lies
– Perhaps more of a summer shoe than all-year round option

The Puma Ignite Pwradapt Caged footwear is said to deliver the optimum blend of comfort, style, and locked-in stability no matter how hard a golfer swings. It has a sporty sneaker style look to it which we really like and you’ll notice the underfoot cushioning from the Ignite foam providing a spring in your step while also letting you feel relatively low to the ground.
