According to recent statistics, we’re playing more golf this summer than we have done in years.
So, we reckon now is the perfect time to treat yourself to some sleek new footwear (we know, any excuse, right?).
Well, in case you do have time for a spot of online shopping or a browse in your local pro shop, here are our top five spikeless women’s golf shoes for summer 2020...
adidas CODECHAOS - TOKYO Collection
The TOKYO Collection was originally designed for the adidas athletes to wear during the 2020 Olympic Games. Created for a total of 41 different sports and all in signal pink colourway, the CODECHAOS golf edition is unapologetically bright and fun. We might have to wait almost a whole year before we watch 120 of the world’s best golfers tee it up in Japan, but in the meantime at least we can turn heads down at the club (in a good way, of course) in these super limited editions.

Offering the perfect combination of comfort and style, you’ll struggle to find anything better if you’re looking for the highest possible levels of quality and comfort. Finished with 100 percent waterproof GORE-TEX® technology, immense grip to keep you feeling closely connected to the ground and the most incredible fit thanks to the fancy sounding ‘ZONAL FLUIDFORM™ TECHNOLOGY’, this is a shoe worth investing in. Super soft and cushioned where you want it to be, and more rigid and supportive where you need it to be, the discreet trainer-style look also makes them ideal for wearing off the course. We might just have to order a pair in every colour.
Inspired by PUMA’s RS running shoes that were first introduced in the '80s, the new RS-G (Running System – Golf) shoes certainly can’t be accused of being too old-fashioned or boring. Yes, we know they’re not for everyone, but we think it’s refreshing to see a golf brand embracing current trends. These aren’t just an impractical fashion statement either. The reengineered upper is seam sealed and completely waterproof, while the Fusion Foam midsole delivers superb cushioning. If you’re ever faced with the task of convincing a teenage girl that golf clothes can be cool, bring out a pic of these funky shoes.
FootJoy is often regarded as the king (and queen) of golf shoes, and we had exceptionally high expectations for their summer 2020 offering. Luckily, the Pro|SL has taken everything we love about the iconic brand and ramped it up a notch. Featuring a special grip designed to maximise power in your swing, the brand claim that this is their most stable spikeless shoe yet. They're 100 percent waterproof too, and if for some reason that proves not to be case during a particularly soggy round, every purchase includes a one-year waterproof warranty. The upgraded edition is available with BOA – a fitting system that offers improved stability, control, and power, but both versions are guaranteed to be mega comfortable from the first round. Colours include white and aqua, grey and blue, and white, silver and aqua. Plus, with the added option of customising your pair with personal touches, you know that nobody else in your club will have exactly the same.
Pro|SL £124.99, Pro|SL BOA £149.99, www.footjoy.co.uk.
Skechers Max Fairway 2
American brand Skechers are known for producing soft and cushioned shoes that you can walk, swing and putt in for hours and hours without your feet getting tired. The breathable textile mesh on the upper part of the Max Fairway 2 will keep your feet cool on hot days, but it’s still water-resistant against those inevitable summer showers. Offering exceptional grip and the most comfortable inner sole imaginable, the various colour options include a clean and classic white, stylish blue and grey, pretty light blue, striking navy and hot pink and finally, an ultra girly light pink. Choosing your fav shade is a real challenge, but one that we’re happy to accept.
