Choosing The Right Pair Of Golf Shoes
By Richard G Hart
Having a good pair of golf shoes can make a night and day difference in your golf game. If you have gone through every option available, changed your golf clubs, hired a golf swing teacher, was properly fitted for your clubs, but you still do not feel completely comfortable with your swing performance, you might want to look at your golf shoes. If you have a pair of five-year old Callaway's, and the spikes have been changed ten times, the Callaway chevron is wore out, you might want to look at getting yourself a more solid, platform to swing from.
There are many different shoe brands to choose from regarding your personal style. Many of the manufacturers have the capacity to suit any golfer, if your personal preference is Adidas I suggest you shop around and product test their product. Remember, just because you spend $200.00 on the latest Tour 360 golf shoes does not mean you are getting the best shoe to maximize your performance. If you have a problem with rolling your ankles you could always consider trading up (or down) to a different shoe brand.
I have noticed the TW's from Nike have a high top look and design to them, which may, give you the extra support needed to perform your best every golf swing. I find it very hard to hit a solid, long, accurate drive when my balance is off. If you have no problem with rolling your ankle and you just do not feel solid about your swing, check the spikes. The spikes in the bottom of your shoe could give you a different feel to other golfers, giving you an awkward platform to shift weight on.
Also, there are many shoes that have different technologies incorporated in them. If you have a hard time shifting weight, you could look at a pair of shoes that have a natural twist, that assist in a guiding motion of the sole of your foot.
You may feel the prices on golf shoes are too outrageous for you, and you simply cannot afford a high performance golf shoe. That is a good argument, but not true. There are so many great, discount golf shoes available on today's market that offers the same technologies as Adidas or Nike. I suggest a new, up and coming manufacturer A-Game Golf.
A-Game Golf Shoes have the latest technologies and designs any golfer could aspire to have. What they do not have is the high, brand price name. A-Game Golf Shoes run from $49.00 - $79.00 men and women's shoes, which makes for a great alternative compared to more popular companies.
Whatever your choice may be, I suggest looking and shopping around. See where you personally as a golfer, could use added performance. Where ever you lack in technique, try to see what shoe will best compliment your weakness and give you a boost in performance on the links.
