Each year I write a holiday gift guide around Thanksgiving. I usually include many random items from golf equipment to golf apparel. Those articles feature a comment or two about the item, plus a link to my original product article or review.
I’m going to do something a little different this year. Rather than putting a bunch of random items into one post, I’m going to post a few more focused golf gift guides. This one will be shoes.
Holiday Golf Gift Guide – Golf Shoes
When looking back the the shoe reviews I’ve done this year, and there are many, I’d be inclined to give FootJoy’s new M:Project the best golf shoe of 2013. The M:Project is a departure for the normally conservative FJ in its appearance, in a good way. Not only are these shoes very stylish, they’re perhaps the most comfortable golf shoe from FJ I’ve ever worn.
GoBe Prodigy Golf Shoes
GoBe is a new player in the golf shoe market.
The new GoBe Prodigy golf shoe is a hybrid street/golf shoe with great comfort, performance and best of all, a very cool look.
The GoBe Prodigy shoes are 20x more water resistant than treated leather golf shoes.
Puma Faas Lite Mesh Golf Shoes
I really dig Puma golf shoes. They’re always very stylish and trendy, with all sorts of great innovations.
The Puma Faas Lite Mesh golf shoes are the lightest golf shoes on the planet (currently). They’re like wearing super-light sneakers, only more comfortable and better looking.
The treads are very innovative with their “SmartQuill” pattern and flex grooves. Great traction.
Ecco Tour Hybrid Wingtip
I’d have to say the best looking shoe I’ve reviewed in 2013 is the Ecco Tour Hybrid Wingtip. You could wear this shoe to a wedding, then run out to the adjoining golf course to squeeze in nine holes between the ceremony and the reception.
Not only are they fantastic looking, the Ecco Tour Hybrid Wingtip is as comfortable as wearing a pair of fuzzy bunny slippers.
Whether you’re going for comfort, performance, style or a bit of each, the list above has you covered for great holiday golf gifts!
