5 star review
NCG SUMMARY

These golf shoes are a great mix of style with comfort and performance whilst make very sure your feet will stay dry in the wet weather.

These are a great choice if you’re looking for a designer golf shoe that won’t let you down on the course.

PROS

  • Great design
  • Warm
  • Comfortable
  • Very waterproof

CONS

  • Pricey
  • Mud can be tough to wash out

First Impressions

A standard Saturday afternoon for me in winter consists of returning home from a round of golf, coming inside and peeling off my wet socks due to the conditions of a wet and muddy British winter course. For that reason, this pair of shoes are a revelation and have improved my quality of life more than I’d care to admit. J. Lindenberg have released their first ever golf shoe, the Vent 500, and have done so in style.

Following the brand’s philosophy, they have set out to create high-quality products that are optimised for performance on the course without sacrificing style. And overall, I would say that they’ve succeeded in that endeavour.

The Vent 500 golf shoes are a very nice shoe to wear on the golf course and reflect the designer label and price tag in their appearance; I would say they are aesthetically closer to modern trainers than the vast majority of offerings on the market. Therefore, if you like the look of these from the pictures, then they won’t disappoint.

On Course Testing

My first reaction to putting on the shoes is that they feel very comfortable and stable; they are designed based on a runner shoe concept and having a quick jog around the office confirmed this. Whilst I did have some back foot slip issues on the damp, worn driving range mats of the local range I frequent, out on the golf course I never had a traction or stability issue from the custom JL TPU outsole tred.

Having put these shoes through probably the most gruelling wet weather conditions they can expect to be in (bar literally walking into a lake to receive my tee shot), I can confirm these shoes are 100% waterproof.

There is also a good layer of padding within the shoes, which makes it more comfortable than a more traditional golf shoe and warmer, which I prioritise in my off-season rounds.  The only issue I had with these shoes was the juxtaposition of a very sleek golf shoe covered in mud. Unfortunately, my local courses are pretty sodden, and the shoes did become covered in mud very quickly, and the mud does settle into the mesh outer, which requires a good scrub to clean; so, I might suggest that these shoes are better suited for summer or dry golf courses.

These shoes are a nice neutral colour and would work excellently for a walk in the woods, as they are very comfortable, easy to put on and certainly won’t be getting your feet wet in winter. This golf shoe is definitely one of the best options if you’re looking for a versatile pair to take on and off the course.

These shoes do look similar to a typical pair of trainers, and if you like the look of them, you could definitely get away with wearing them out and about, however, I don’t know if they could ever truly crossover into my everyday wardrobe. I believe the combination of a simple style with excellent waterproofing and comfort makes them a great choice for a pair of all-weather golf shoes, especially if you are looking for a more designer pair.

Callaway Epic Max driver review

Jack is a PGA Golf Professional who specialises in coaching, teaching golf to beginners and top-level amateurs for 10+ years. He also loves his golf equipment and analysing the data of the latest clubs on the market using launch monitors, specialising in blade irons and low-spinning drivers despite having a chronically low ball flight.

Although Jack has no formal journalism training, He has been reading What's In The Bag articles since he started playing at 12 and studying golf swings since his dad first filmed his swing to reveal one of the worst over-the-top slice swings he reckons has ever been recorded, which set him off on the path to be a coach. His favourite club ever owned was a Ping G10 driver bought from a local top amateur with the hope that some of the quality golf shots would come with it (they didn't), and worst was a Nike SQ driver he only bought because Tiger was using it.

Jack is a member of Sand Moor Golf Club and regularly gets out on the golf course to prepare for tournaments. Jack uses a TaylorMade BRNR Mini driver, a half set of TaylorMade P7MB irons, MG4 wedges and a TaylorMade TP Reserve putter.
