Editor Emma picks six women's golf shoes which offer a simple, yet stylish look and can be worn on or off the golf course this summer.

After what feels like a lifetime, the sun has finally made an appearance and looks like it may be sticking around for a little while in the UK. I am very hopeful that the winter golf shoes can now be washed for the final time and put away for a few months. Regardless of the sun, we are officially into summer, so there's a double reason to have a little focus on your footwear with this round-up of the best women's golf shoes for summer.

First up, in our look at women's golf shoes for summer, we've decided to focus on the pump-style golf shoes, more trainer like in look and for five out of our six suggestions, shoes that can be worn both on and off the golf course.

I don't know about you but I am embracing the move to use golf shoes in more casual settings and have been amazed by how many compliments I have had (especially for the Duca del Cosma Giordana's below).

It's worth noting that for our six picks below, I have chosen the most neutral colour version of the golf shoe, there are plenty of brighter and more colourful versions available.

Women & Golf choose six pump-style, women's golf shoes for summer

Duca del Cosma - Giordana

We're starting with a shoe that has been tried and tested here at Women & Golf. The Duca del Cosma Giordana golf shoe is very versatile – whether you're wearing them on the golf course or out for lunch with friends.

You have the features and tech of a golf shoe that is also styled to be more of a smart trainer.

It is worth noting that these shoes feel more roomier than their more traditional-looking women's golf shoes and boots.

Available in three colours. Sizes UK 3-9. RRP £169.00

Swing Out Sister - Sole Sister

It's not surprising to hear that Swing Out Sister had to bring their Sole Sister Shoes back by popular demand.

We totally agree with them "an ultra comfort, ultra stylish look they will lead you from the 1st to the 19th with almost no effort at all."

We've tried these on but not ventured onto the golf course. Very similar sole design to the Duca's above, so we're confident they'll perform.

If you're looking for a women's golf shoe that is a little more racey, you'll love the graffiti version. Plus a fantastic price point.

Available in four colours. Sizes UK 4-8. RRP £79.95

TRUE Linkswear - FS-02 Mixed Media

TRUE Linkswear

TRUE Linkswear may not be a golf brand that you are too familiar with. We're going to be sharing more from the brand soon. But in the meantime, if you're looking for a sneaker-style, casual women's golf shoe, then the FS-02 Mixed Media could be for you.

Premium materials have been used to deliver a widely comfortable and uniquely breathable style that also gives you water protection where you need it.

A knitted saddle promotes breathability, where the full grain leather and Nubuck suede toe and heel areas provide stability and weather protection for those dewy rounds.

A shoe that can be worn both on and off the golf cours.

Available in two colours. Size UK 3.5-7.5. RRP £165

FootJoy - Links

The FootJoy Links women's golf shoes provide on/off course comfort, with a top made from plush leather which provides visual appeal, waterproof protection and luxurious comfort.

At the end of the day, it's FootJoy, so you know that the sole has been designed for its primary job of supporting your feet through your golf swing.

The shoes come with a one year waterproof warranty and they are also available as MyJoys, so you can design them to suit your style and needs.

Available in five colours, plus design your own via MyJoys Sizes UK 3-8. RRP £114.99 (currently reduced to £69.99) MyJoys start from £159.99

adidas - Retrocross 24

adidas Retrocross

There was more than one style we could have chosen from adidas but we've gone with the Retrocross 24.

The Retrocross 24 shoe has a court-inspired design, with a waterproof upper and spikeless outsole.

As the marketing says, these women's golf shoes "offer the versatility to play any day and transition off the course without missing a beat."

We have tried this exact style but have found adidas trainer style shoes to be very comfortable and had no problem with grip when playing on the course.

Available in four colours. Sizes UK 3.5-14.5. RRP £80.00.

G/FORE - Perforated Durf

The G/FORE Perforated Durf women's golf shoe came to be due to the popularity of their equivalent street style shoe.

A simple styled shoe with perforation throughout. Don't be concerned about the holes, the shoe is waterproof and washable.

Of all the styles we've shared, this one is more of a golf only style due to the bespoke cleat design to help with optimal on-course traction (these are not replaceable spikes).

Our experience of G/FORE is of a different pair of shoes but we can vouch for the fact that the feel very comfortable and need no breaking in.

Available in one colour. Sizes 3-8.5. RRP £180.00
