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

    • Played better at Western Gailes yesterday and loved the course - very welcoming and had me thinking much more than Turnberry did as the greens were smaller with danger pretty much everywhere. I started out brilliantly, playing the first 4 in -1, but then turned into the wind - into and off the right - and immediately lost a ball playing for too much wind on the hardest hole, which I'd have bogeyed anyway. Putting again wasn't as good as it has been and I just haven't felt like I'm going to hole anything outside of 6 feet. Highlights were the first four holes, particularly feeling like DJ or Rory on the 4th, a good par on 7 (see below) and a good last four holes - bar another lost ball on 18...  http://www.gamegolf.com/player/benpage101/round/1072354 My par on the 7th - only swing I recorded was a really nice punch 5 iron from 170 into a strong breeze: 3rd tee: 'Secret' 6th green: Looking back on the 13th green: I get a few days' rest now before my last couple of rounds, both at Machrihanish Dunes. I've learnt a lot about my game playing these two rounds that I hadn't known beforehand. I find it really hard when I don't know the line and have to guess and commit to the shot far less. If I can see it though, it's generally fine. I need to sort the driving in the wind out as there's just no room for error - a slight mishit and a ball that would be safe is gone. Additionally, particularly at Turnberry, I need to stop overthinking things. Occasionally I'd find myself trying to hit a 7 iron with the ball miles back in my stance to deloft it, aiming way left to compensate and just should have hit what I felt comfortable with and taken the hit with the wind. My putting has to get better as well, particularly from range. So much fun though and I will definitely play Western Gailes again (probably more of a certainty than Turnberry) - I loved the course and the welcome you get was amazing.
    • Played better at Western Gailes yesterday and loved the course - very welcoming and had me thinking much more than Turnberry did as the greens were smaller with danger pretty much everywhere. The main thing I've taken away from this trip though is that I need to control my driver in the wind better. A lot of times, it was definitely the play and my second shot was excellent, but I lost too many going with the wind, which probably wouldn't have been too bad without it. Partial wedges were really good again and approach play was generally alright. I started out brilliantly, playing the first 4 in -1, but then turned into the wind - into and off the right - and immediately lost a ball playing for too much wind on the hardest hole, which I'd have bogeyed anyway.

    • Lake Mead. It's down 150' +/-, and still losing about 5' every year. 
    • Well the head of the pros looks quite steady in the horizontal movement. I just want to emphasize that swing in a barrel and steady head can harm your swing especially if your swing is already good. 
    • Sounds similar, I have never heard any one with this swing thought just hope it's not a one time fluke.It makes sense though if your belly button follows your club head all the way back and through with arms connected to body you can't get ahead or behind with your swing , if  that make sense , don't have to think of anything else it just happens naturally perfect rythem  and a nice draw I also visualize the swing path and try to keep club head on that path
