Best overall

FootJoy Premiere Series – Packard

  • Great stability and structure
  • Full-grain leather upper
  • Timeless look

FootJoy will forever be at the top of the best golf shoes for the pros. Among them: Tiger Woods, who wore these shoes at the 2022 Masters. It’s a sharp move, considering the GOAT only wore Nike on the links. But after his recent car accident, he needed a “more stable” shoe and opted for the Premiere Series-Packard, which has a plush and secure OrthoLite footbed to provide all-day comfort. If it’s good enough for Tiger, it’s good enough for us.

The best value for money

  • Super affordable

The downside is that they don’t feature prominent spikes – PUMA instead equips the shoe with rubber studs along the outsole. The advantage is that the shoe stays low and flat on the ground, making it easier to stay connected throughout your swing.
