Golf Shoes for wide feet.

18 posts in this topic

I get jealous when I hear about you guys saying some brand of golf shoes or other are "comfortable."  I can't really find any comfortable shoes. The best I have so far are some shoes from Croc, not the open back ones, but regular shoes, that I can wear for nine holes walking, but they are far from "comfortable," tolerable would be a better description.  This does limit my ability to play eighteen holes walking.

Any suggestions?

2 friends that I golf with both have wider feet and they wear True Links golf shoes. Try those and they do come in different colours as well, not sure if that is a selling point for you or not but an option at least.

I have a EEE foot and for years wore the widest Foot Joy's I could get. By the end of a round (I walk) my toes would be sore. I bought a pair of True Links this year and they are extremely comfortable.

One if the reasons I wear non-golf shoes ... Hard to find a pair wide enough ... I use my running shoes.

I find that if I buy Footjoy shoes in an extra wide and one size larger, they fit pretty well. At first they kind of looked like clown shoes (I usually wear Asics since they're the widest I can find in tennis shoes) compared to my regular shoes, but I got used to it pretty quick. That said, I still usually will wear my tennis shoes unless I have a tournament or it's wet since they're generally more comfortable for my fat feet.

I have semi wide feet and have found adidas to be good with mine. Idk how wide you are talking though.

I have wide feet (not a EEE though) When I walk, wear my Croc Sport Duet. Nice and wide. And it's like walking barefoot.

Thank you everybody. I think living here in the sticks, I am going to have to do some internet shopping, but they usually take shoes back if they don't fit. At least that is how my daughters do it, and they buy a lot of shoes over the internet.

One of the reasons I wanted golf shoes, rather than plain old athletic shoes, and maybe it is an over reaction, but I went to the range in sandals, sometimes I wear Crocs, because they don't crush my feet, and with my feet sliding around I couldn't hit anything straight. Made me think a really stable shoe makes a difference one lest variable.

Stability is over-rated. :-) Go for comfort.

Another vote for TRUE LINKS from someone with wide feet also.

The only issues I have had with them are 1) they are not as waterproof as my Footjoy Dryjoys (I have the Ryan Moore Signature Series Rebel High in suede) and 2) amount of grip on wet muddy days.

And my wife thinks they look like clown shoes so sometimes I will even wear them for going out to dinner.

I like FJ and wear 13W.  However, fit depends on more than just length and width.  The volume of the shoe matters a lot and some styles have a high volume while others not.  According to those on FJ's forum, the highest volume FJ shoe styles are Contour, MProject, and DNA.  I wear Contours.  The FJ Casual spikeless seems OK, but I've only tried them on and not worn them while playing.  I tried FJ Sports and couldn't even get my foot into a 13W.

I play in sandal spikes, which tend to be wider.  Because I also have wide-ass duck feet.

Unless I'm playing at a nice private club.  Then I break out the foot breakers and bear it for a round.

That is it exactly, my feet are not hugely wide. Not EEE or anything, I just have really high arches so I want the increased volume of a wide shoe. My brother went to a specialty store one time and they told him that he didn't really have wide feet, he just had the arch of a size 15, my brother also exaggerates a lot... but you get the idea.

Thanks again everybody.

A wider shoe will not benefit your high arches in the long run. It really doesn't make any sense.

I know exactly what you mean.  I wear a 14W and the most comfy pair of shoes I found are a pair of adidas spikeless.  I cannot find the exact link but they are something like this http://www.tgw.com/customer/category/product.jsp/SUBCATEGORY_ID/51057/refScid/1094/sattr0/Width/sattrVal0/wide/sattr1/Cleat+Technology/sattrVal1/spikeless/sattr2/Type/sattrVal2/golf/sattr3/Color/sattrVal3/White~%7C~Satellite
