Golf shoes have a come a long way over the last few years thanks to technology and they no longer have to be uncomfortable in the quest for functionality and performance.
In fact, some of the most comfortable golf shoes ever have been released in the last couple of years.
We take a look at the best golf shoes for 2017 as different brands innovate and refine their offerings to give consumers more choice than they ever had before.
Most Comfortable Golf Shoes Review
These shoes are worn by a number of Golf Professionals on the PGA Tour and have been tested to perform satisfactorily in extremely tough conditions. FootJoy is one of the oldest and most respected Golf brands and so it is no surprise that these shoes are made with attention to tiny details.
FootJoy uses a perimeter weighted outsole to ensure complete stability even as the shoes remain extremely lightweight.
This, along with a proprietary Laser Plus Fit that ensures adequate underfoot cushioning and an extremely reliable fit, means that the FootJoy Pro/SL is easily one of the most comfortable golf shoes to be sold in the market today.
The top of the shoes is made of ChromoSkin (Developed by Pittards) that is a supple, breathable leather while being 100% waterproof at the same time. A TPU molded sole provides traction on the course and the versatility to walk on the course straight from work.
We recommend these shoes highly to anyone looking for a perfect blend of comfort and performance.

Ecco Men’s Casual Hybrid Golf Shoes
Gone are the days of the clunky Golf Shoes that used to populate courses everywhere, especially since companies like Ecco have pushed the envelope further and developed comfortable golf shoes that look perfectly in place even when worn in other settings.
The Ecco Men’s Casual Hybrid Golf Shoes are easily the best looking golf shoes in our opinion and quite possibly the most comfortable golf shoes as well.
They are available in a variety of colors and textures (The Dark Clay version is the one to get!), some of them quite tasteful, and should cover the tastes of most people.
Ecco has used leather to make the uppers of the shoes like traditional Golf Shoes and treated it with Ecco Hydromax technology that makes these shoes fantastically water resistant. The shoes also have a removable second skin and insole to allow extra width if someone needs it.
Coming to the performance of this shoe, Ecco has built the outsole with E-DTS Hybrid technology that provides over 800 traction angles on the course. Golfers using these shoes will not lack for grip or stability under most playable conditions.
The fact these shoes look good, are extremely comfortable and do not compromise on performance makes them one of our favorite golf shoes for 2017 and a pair that you can’t really go wrong with.

Nike Golf Lunar Control Vapor Shoes
Our third pick for the most comfortable golf shoes you can buy right now are the Nike Golf Lunar Control Vapor Shoes. They look futuristic with their blade live grooves in the soles and can be eye-catching with some vivid colors. These look like Golf Shoes from the future and Nike has put in all of its latest technology in them to ensure they perform like those as well.
There is ample cushioning in the shoes thanks to a Lunarlon midsole insert while the Flywire technology locks down the show firmly on your foot.
The most eye-catching feature of these shoes are the blades on the outsoles and we are happy to say that are much more comfortable than you would think at first glance.
The soft Nike Articulated Integrated Traction sole provides fantastic grip and stability on the course while being supremely comfortable.
These shoes have also been weatherproofed to their gills and Nike guarantees them being waterproof for 2 years.
The shoes are also flexible enough to allow a full range of movement without compromising on traction, a trick that can be difficult to master.
Finally, the presence of a mesh lining in the interior of the shoes adds more comfort for your feet.
If you are looking for modern, futuristic looks with top of the line performance and yet be among the most comfortable shoes available then these are the pair for you.
