Best Spikeless Golf Shoes 2020
GM Says: For 2020 FootJoy has updated its iconic Pro/SL shoe. The new edition features an Infinity outsole, which is 11.5 per cent wider than the previous version and also has 30 per cent more traction points with the ground for increased grip. There’s also a redesigned Power Harness for support and the upper is now made of soft Chromoskin leather, which is waterproof and more breathable.
GM Says: A spikeless model that blends on-course performance with off-course style, the S-Three delivers dynamic comfort and modern looks with a mix of technologies to enhance performance. The most notable innovation is 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.
GM Says: A shoe doing the rounds on Tour with Jon Rahm and Sergio Garcia putting them on, the Codechaos shoes from adidas feature a new upper made of multi-layer mesh, giving the shoe a unique texture while enhancing durability and breathability. This also keeps them extremely lightweight which is perfect for out on the course.

They are easy to clean too thanks to Soleshield which is a thin TPU film that is vacuum-formed around the full-length Ignite foam midsole to make cleaning off dirt easier. It also comes in Disc Closure and Solelace (online only) lacing options as well as more traditional, all-leather Pro version.

Under Armour HOVR Show GTX SL
GM Says: Under Armour’s new HOVR Show shoe has several pieces of technology to ensure high performance on the course. Chief among them is HOVR cushioning, which supports the natural motion of the foot and provides energy return to help eliminate impact fatigue. Additionally, the Rotational Resistance outsole helps provide stability and traction throughout the swing.
Skechers Go Golf Elite 4
GM Says: Spearheading the new Skechers shoe line-up for 2020 is the Elite 4. This spikeless model boasts a sporty, low profile with luxury leather uppers and features Skechers’ Griplflex TPU outsoles for superior balance and traction.
Duca Del Cosma Belair
GM Says: The design of the bi-colour TR outsole combines function and fitting suited for use both on and off the course. The 5 mm cone-shaped nubs ensure optimal stability and grip during the swing. The lightweight Airplay VI outsole provides cushioning across the whole sole area and features an integrated bumper at the front for protection. Comes in three colours.
Mizuno Wave Cadence Spikeless
GM Says: This is a lightweight golf shoe built for enhanced comfort thanks to a new one-piece ‘booty’ structure in which the tongue is connected to the lining for a more comfortable fit. Mizuno’s Wave Platform seen in its running shoes blends the support of a high-end running shoe, with the lateral stability and traction needed for golf.
FootJoy SuperLites XP
GM Says: Synthetic uppers and a waterproof membrane balances lightweight flexibility with durability to create a shoe that delivers all-round summer performance while also protecting against unwanted showers.
GM Says: Summer shoes need to be light, comfortable and versatile and not many pull this combination off better than the new Ecco S-Lite. In fact, it’s one of the lightest golf shoes we’ve ever tested yet one that still doesn’t sacrifice the grip you need to perform.

Nike Golf Lunar Control Vapour 2
GM Says: The new shoe features the same TPU outsole with protruding tracks for the ultimate grip and traction in all conditions as the orginal. Nike Flywire technology provides locked down support, while the full length Lunarlon cushioning provides walk-in comfort. The split tongue breaks when you walk to prevent rubbing the top of the foot, while there’s a cleaner look thanks to the hidden Flywire technology and movement of the Nike Swoosh logo to the side.
Adidas Tour360 XT SL
GM says: In terms of style, the new adidas Tour360 XT shoes deliver an attractive blend of traditional golf shoe looks with a sporting edge. These are aesthetics that will appeal to a broad spectrum of golfers of different ages.
The Tour360 XT gets the name from the X-shaped traction system on the outsole, providing multi-directional grip throughout the swing. These X-shaped lugs provide more stability and can react with better traction through uneven lies due to their eight-sided touch points, without sacrificing any comfort. The grip is certainly excellent, even in tougher ground conditions.
