Here’s the third installment of golf shoe tips.
It’s hard to have comfortable shoes without dry feet. And to have dry feet, you’ve got to have good socks.
There’s just no way to wear your everyday socks and get away with it. Get some good golf socks that wick away moisture and are padded to protect your feet.
Feet that are cushioned, comfortable and dry are happy feet.
Use shoe trees to keep your golf shoes in their proper shape despite your throwing them in your trunk and forgetting them for a week.
Cedar shoe trees are the best you can get. I let my golf shoes dry and then put my cedar shoe trees in them. This is one of the reasons I have several pairs of golf shoes. To let one dry completely while I wear a different pair.
Finally, keep your receipt and warranty handy. Golf shoes have been known to fail and if they do, the manufacturers should have to stand behind them.
You can’t play underwater golf and expect the manufacturer to replace the shoes, but under normal conditions, you should get your money’s worth.
If you buy your golf shoes from a local golf shop, talk to the sales rep about the warranty BEFORE you leave the store.
There are more than enough reasons to buy good golf shoes than there are to go cheap. Do your research before you buy, keep your receipt and know your warranty and you’ll be happy that you did.
