Important Considerations

1. Fit

Let’s call a spade a spade. If the shoes don’t fit you well and aren’t exceptionally comfortable on your feet from the first time you try them on then put a line through them! Move onto the next potential option available. Bear in mind you generally are walking each round and not riding so that works out to be being roughly 6 miles. SIX MILES! Don’t make it harder than it already is by having uncomfortable shoes.

If you have a certain brand that you know fit you ‘like a glove’ then stick with that brand. Perhaps just opt for a different style within that brand and this will make it easier for you to follow through on those online impulse buys where you are doubting certain things. If you’re trying out a different brand then I suggest you try these shoes on at your local golf store first and then purchase through one of our affiliates that offer fantastic prices.

2. Build Quality

There is a huge amount that goes into building a quality shoe – especially waterproof golf shoes. Waterproof shoes are more expensive because they protect your feet from getting soaked during a round in wet conditions.

Besides the waterproof aspect, many manufacturers nowadays (especially Nike) are trying to make the shoe as lightweight as possible for you so that you get more enjoyment out of a round of golf. Speaking from experience, a heavy shoe is terrible and really starts taking it’s toll toward the end of the round. This also makes it easier for you to lose concentration and finish off poorly.

Pay attention to the build quality of a shoe and inspect all elements from the leather to the lightweight elements over the shoe to the laces to the sole. All play a part in comfort and performance.

3. Value for Money

Sometimes you find a bargain that you just can’t pass up, but on golf shoes it’s tough to find. At the end of the day waterproof golf shoes are expensive, but you need to keep in mind how long they are going to last you for. If you are a super keen golfer you might be playing upwards of 100 times a year. If you’re a regular golfer you can trim that to maybe 50 times a year. That means for regular golfers a great pair of waterproof golf shoes that cost you $200.00 at the time will last you roughly two years and prove to be great value. Unlike a cheaper alternative that cracks or the sole comes loose and you’re purchasing a new pair after 6 months.

5 Best Waterproof Golf Shoes 2016

Without further adieu here are top five best waterproof golf shoes 2016!

NB – All shoes mentioned in this review carry a 2 year waterproof guarantee

Adidas Tour 360 Boost – from $59.99-$149.99

I have always been an Adidas golf shoe fan and have worn this particular pair for a number of years now. In short I find the Tour 360 Boost to be super comfortable and they have that sporty, but classy look about them that is so appealing.

The FitFoam and 360 Wrap mould so well to your feet making it feel as though you are donning your most comfortable pair of sneakers.

Weight: 17.7 ounces

Here is a summary of the pros and cons.


PROS:
  • FitFoam moulds to the shape of your foot and gets more and more comfortable as time passes
  • Lining material reduces friction, heat and moisture delivering optimal shoe climate
  • Premium leather upper that is exceptionally durable and will last you a very lengthy period of time
  • The bridge between front and back of foot really does aid performance by allowing your foot more movement but still keeping shoe on the ground through the swing

CONS:
  • Slightly on the heavy side, but they are still comfortable and have worn heavier shoes before

Footjoy has been in the game longer than anyone else and all golfers will know just how good they are.

The D.N.A is a classy, but conventional looking shoe with a modern twist that a number of the world’s best players are wearing such as Adam Scott. Available in a handful of colour options and is a quality offering.

Weight: 15.7 ounces

Here is a summary of the pros and cons.

Nike Air Zoom Attack – from $59.95-$149.99

Nike have made a big move in the golf industry and whilst most of their golf shoes have the running/trainer shoe look, the Air Zoom Attack look like proper golf shoes, but with such a funky and classy aura about them.

These shoes just look expensive and are the business! Lightweight shoe that offers tremendous stability right through the swing.

Weight: 16.4 ounces

Here is a summary of the pros and cons.


PROS:
  • Great looking shoe for younger players or even older ‘cool/trendy’ players
  • The side support overlays help stability exceptionally well and help your balance through the swing
  • Waterproof membranes in both the upper and the footbed – most waterproof shoe we have tested to date

CONS:
  • Side support overlays take a couple holes to get used to each round – especially when used to never having them prior

Ecco Cage – from $189.95 (See Offer)

Ecco are known for their spikeless golf shoes, but the Cage is not. Ecco made this shoe for the player who actually enjoys wearing soft spikes.

Having always been known for their comfort, they are not always known for their shoes being the epitome of style. I have actually tested these shoes though and was quite surprised when coming off the course just how easy they were to play in. Ease and grace.

Weight: 14.9 ounces

Here is a summary of the pros and cons.


PROS:
  • Versatility and functionality in a nutshell – walking 18 holes in these shoes is an absolute breeze
  • Web-looking pattern at the heel and toe are continuations of the midsole and provide optimal stability
  • Very lightweight making each round just that much easier – the lightest shoe of all it’s competitors here

CONS:
  • As mentioned above – not the best looking shoes on the market I have to say. Even though comfort overrides that aspect

Puma TitanTour Ignite – from $124.80-$160.00 (See Offer)

Don’t you immediately just think of Rickie Fowler?? Unreal how a brand and player are synonymous.

Fantastic style and construction offering players of all caliber premium comfort and class. Your feet will stay dry in these shoes because of the Outlast Insole that wicks away moisture regulating temperature.

Weight: 15.3 ounces

Here is a summary of the pros and cons.


PROS:
  • Great looking golf shoe available in a few different color options
  • Offers wonderful comfort and stability through each and every swing – foam tongue also very comfortable
  • Great price and one of the best value for money waterproof shoes available right now at the cost

CONS:
  • I’m racking my brain here, but I can’t find a negative. Just a quality golf shoe!
