What Do You Need
To Have in a Shoe?

While the top Pro’s sign hefty contracts with shoe manufacturers, the regular golfer, and the happy hackers are often left with the insane price tag.

Golf has been under strain in the last year, with the pandemic playing havoc with golf clubs.

Even though the game has continued, the crowds of supporters have had limited access.

The exposure the brands have paid for is far less than they ever expected.

The manufacturers are still launching new lines of golf shoes. Each one is advertised with a new feature that promises features to improve your game. And they may be right.

But at what stage is it worth it to pay top dollar for a golf shoe?


Decent golf shoes are an essential item in your bag of tricks. You want to ensure you have the minimum requirements necessary to help you play the best round of golf you can, and not all to your handicap.


What Do You Need To Have In A Shoe?

  • 01

    Decent Grip

    Ensuring you have the grip option that works for you is essential. A firm grip with soft plastic spikes adds to your stability and traction during your swing in wetter conditions. 

  • 02

    Comfortable Material that works for you

    Waterproof enough to keep your foot dry during those early morning tee-off times, or even some drizzle will make your game far more enjoyable. Some shoes are made from softer leather for added comfort, but essentially, you need breathable material that will allow your feet to get the necessary air to breathe, not smell too bad when you take them off, and of course, keep any fungal growth at bay. 

Are more expensive shoes are the way to go?


Not necessarily. Each person has different shaped feet, and finding your fit is more important than a price tag. For example, fitting various shoes, trying them out during a swing, and ensuring they will not get you limping off the course after your first game.


Many golf shoes now come standard with all the basics in terms of material, grip, and spikes and will ensure a comfortable fit; without the price tag.

The main question is, are you hellbent on buying into a brand name, or do you want an excellent shoe for a reasonable price?


TRocket Golf offers a wide range of golf shoes that still come with the required technology of the more expensive brands but without the price tag.


The Chinese manufacturers are so adept at ensuring they have all the tech without the cost.
