Hate getting soggy feet? We all do, so here are the best waterproof golf shoes to keep those wet underfoot conditions at bay

There’s nothing worse than getting your feet soaked because you’ve gone to play golf with shoes that aren’t fully waterproof.

All of us have been there, but we learn from our mistakes, especially when it comes to playing golf.

Even when it’s summer, courses tend to be wet underfoot. Don’t be fooled by the overhead conditions!

The best spikeless golf shoes, best golf shoes for wide feet and best golf shoes for walking are all great for what they’re made for, but when the year is coming to an end a waterproof golf shoe is an absolute must if you’re wanting to play golf often.

These technology-packed shoes won’t just keep the your shoes dry, but they’re also really comfortable and look great. There’s a wide range of styling options available for you to find your perfect pair.

If you’re already sorted in the golf shoes department, we also think you should check out our guides to the best golf waterproofs and best golf umbrellas before braving the rain this month.
