My wife, the fashion queen isn't yet awake to ask.....I'm heading out for the course in an hour or two.....wondering if it is "acceptable" to wear black golf shoes with shorts.


For clarification these are all black...not saddles.

FWIW, I have brown shoes and was told that with bron and black shoes one should wear black socks. However, I've never really been concerned with fashion enough to follow the supposed "rules".

I voted "who cares".

As long as you wear black ankle socks it's fine. Do NOT - I repeat, DO NOT - wear white socks with all black shoes and shorts. To avoid this issue I only buy saddle shoes (I always have a pair of Black/White and a pair of Brown/White and am careful to match to what I am wearing).

Sweet....thanks for the fashion advice.


I want to wear this particular pair because the course is gonna be slushy from a recent deluge we've had.

Gonna wear a pair of black UnderArmor below the ankle socks with 'em.

How often do you get kicked off the course?

When the weather is nice I do it every round of every year. I ONLY wear black shoes. Either with pants OR shorts.

Black shoes, black socks, black belt. I mean, I guess you're supposed to match these things, but I wouldn't tear my hair out trying to figure it out.

If it is indeed slushy, definitely wear the black shoes! I wore all white shoes the other day in slushy conditions... wow, big mistake..

How do you clean white leather?

On the other hand, I try not to wear black shoes with shorts, but if you do, just wear black socks... just make birdies and no one will care! But if you bogey every hole someone might call the fashion police.

Just be sure to also wear black knee-high socks pulled up all the way. Otherwise people might look at you funny.

Eh, some people shouldn't answer this question. I am one of them - here are my golf shoes:



(I have other colors too, thankfully...)

I would say as long as you use a color coordinating purse it's ok.

Like others have said, perfectly acceptable if worn with black ankle socks.

I kid you not, I have a golf shirt that matches those perfectly! I wear it when playing mountain courses so I am easy to spot if I get lost looking for my ball in the woods.
