THE NCG TEST: Waterproof shoesJanuary, 2013
These days you can look good and still stay dry
ABOUT THE TEST
We invited all the major manufacturers to send in their latest waterproof shoes. We tested them on the course, hitting shots and walking at least one hole in each pair.
We took into consideration looks, price, bulkiness, weight, stability, comfort and how easy it was to walk and swing in each pair.
(NOT) TESTING WATERPROOFNESS
We would have needed to test the shoes for several rounds to make any comment on this – and even then could have been at the mercy of a rogue fault, or just walked through a particularly wet patch of long grass that let water in from the top, rather than through the shoe. We have only featured models that come with waterproof guarantees so we presume that they will all keep your feet dry. We have made no judgements on their effectiveness in this area.
