Equipment editor James Savage runs through the best spiked golf shoes on the market for 2018...
We’ve had a fair few new releases at the start of the year so let’s take a look at the best spiked golf shoes 2018.

Spikeless shoes were very much a rarity in the professional game up until Freddie Couples wore the Ecco Street model at the 2010 Masters.
Since then spikeless shoes have overtaken with models such as the FootJoy ProSL being among the most popular on the European and PGA Tours.
But for some of us, me included, a pair of spiked or cleated golf shoes just seem to offer that added bit of stability – particularly during the UK winter.
