Any golf shoes made to work with Orthotics?

10 posts in this topic

I have some foot issues but they have not been so bad as to having to wear my orthotics when I play golf. Now that has changed but my orthotics don't fit in my golf shoes (dri-joys) even if I remove the bottom sole. Any custom shoe people or shoes that are made to work with orthotics? Thanks

I can't wear any type of shoe/sneaker without special insoles for more than a day without getting back pain. The ones at Costco work great fo me and I put them in all my footwear. It is always recommended to remove the original insoles. I have Footjoy Contours with BOA and True Links for hotter days and they work great. Hope this was helpfull.

Welcome to the site.

I don't use orthotics but you can try the search function above to look for all the threads on golf shoes or any other topic you like.

I did a quick search for you and a few people suggest trying out the ECCO brand.  I'm pretty sure I've read some posts from @Mr. Desmond where he mentions that he wears True Linkswear shoes with inserts so he may be able to share his experiences with them.

Thanks for the help. I have E-mailed True Linkswear shoes about what they think would be best for me. I still think its strange that their is so little access to custom fitted golf shoes......

I used to "custom fit ski boots" years ago and would use my insoles in my golf shoes.

You have a couple of options.

Purchase a 1/2 size larger golf shoe with a larger width.

Trim your custom insole (Toe, Heel, width areas) slightly to fit.

Also, check other brands of insoles. Some are less dense than other brands and work well.

A belt sander works well on most insoles for modifying.

Take your golf shoes and insoles to a ski shop and ask a boot fitter for help.

Also, insoles sold at ski shops are usually a very good product and easier to fit.

Last year my feet were absolutely killing me when I played golf so I replaced my LiteJoys (or whatever, I don't think that's the name) with the Contour series which is FootJoy's comfort shoe. On top of that I also bought some orthodics which I can comfortably slip ontop of the liner that was already there. It was tight at first, but once the shoe broke in I have no problems whatsoever and they fit me perfectly.

That works, are they BOA style or lace ups?. Let me know how you guys make out though the summer. My older Contours lost their water proof quality near year end last year...they where bought in the spring at $150. I'm dassapointed. On the up side they are the most comfortable golf shoes ever so I bought a new pair for 19.95 at GolfTown on a one day online sale. I also own a set of lace up Contours; the pointed ones with holes down the sides of the lace area and find that the heel area wore through just after three rounds.

Mine are standard lace ups, and I'm with you...they're the most comfortable golf shoe I have owned

There are also options that aren't golf shoes. Many trail running shoes will provide the same if not more traction than street golf shoes and will have a variety of fit options. I love the Inov-8 X-Talon.

Hi,

I have the same issue and most "removable" insoles do not provide enough depth. Ecco have removal insoles on some shoes but you need to try before you buy.

I have been using Footjoy XPS-1 which have a deep removal insole and they have been fine with my orthotics. However, I am now have trouble buying them in an EU47 or U.K. size 12.

Good luck, I hope this helps you.

David

    • New GolfNow layout is Awful
      Interestingly, I received this in an email from GolfNow yesterday.... You spoke and we're listening. That's why we're already hard at work fine-tuning the new GolfNow.com based on your feedback. Keep an eye out for enhancements on the way! I wouldn't be surprised if they weren't well aware of forum threads like this one too.
    • New GolfNow layout is Awful
      Every customer is different, some know exactly what they want and expect you to execute their vision.  Others want more consultation and input from the designers as to what others are doing or what trends are on the rise.  Another factor is maintenance, how much time is required to keep the site updated, can the business maintain the site on their own or must that be outsourced, etc. There are numerous reasons why a business would redesign their site, such as; The business has undergone some fundamental changes that they want reflected in a new website The cost of maintaining the current site is too high The provider of their data has changed the feeds or discontinued certain elements of the data. Users have complained about how the site works The site is outdated or dependent on outdated technology or servers. They want a site that is "responsive" meaning the same site works on desktop, tablet and smart phones. I've never done work for a business that said they want to make their site worse, less user friendly, less functional or more frustrating for their customers to use.  My guess is that given the popularity of sites like GolfNow, that some standards were created for how the data would be distributed and updated to the GolfNow like websites from the different courses to make it easier for them all to get the data (the same thing happened to the airline industry).  The change to the backend likely warranted the changing of the front end as well. In some cases compromises must be made.  I've redesigned sites that were written in HTML, PHP and jQuery which are not easy for end users to maintain and update themselves.  The client wanted a responsive site that they could maintain easily on their own.  I suggested we develop the new site using Joomla, Drupel or WordPress as those platforms provided them with everything they requested.  They ultimately ended up with a WordPress site that was responsive and very functional but because of the platform certain nuances of the old site were lost. Users initially complained but we worked out some issues and over time they appreciated the more frequent updates and ability to easily view the site on their iPads and cell phones.  Website redesign like life is full of compromises.
    • Shorts On the PGA Tour (Updated 2013, 2016)
      I don't think the PGA Tour's stance on this has only to do with "tradition." Ultimately the PGA Tour is a member-run organization. If they strongly wished for shorts, they'd vote to allow it. That they've not done so speaks volumes, IMO.
    • Donald Trump for president?
      I heard something on the radio along the lines of New Hampshire having "super delegates" that will vote for Clinton regardless of yesterday's vote.  As far as Trump goes, my bottom line  is that he simply is not electable. Moderates, women and minorities aren't going to vote for that guy.    
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Just to clarify, I consider myself a committed Trump supporter, I like him. I am not a conservative in the traditional sense. Like anyone, I don't agree with every position that my candidate stands for, I do, however, agree on his main points re: immigration.
