Even though golf is booming, welcoming new players to the game should be a priority. Here’s a friendly reminder: Some of these new golfers may not know (or even care) that their choice of golf shoe can impact performance.
Here at MyGolfSpy, our goal is to help golfers make the best buying decisions. That’s why we have such a rigorous testing regimen and why our mantra is #TruthDigest. It’s why we pour our heart and sole (get it?) into testing golf shoes to bring your our Best Golf Shoes of 2022 lists.
But all that has nothing to do with this article!
As I always say: Golf is about having fun and what makes the game fun is up to you. Does performing well make the game fun for you? I’d suggest checking out our Best Spikeless and Best Spiked golf shoes for 2022. But if all you need to have fun on the course is a sweet-looking pair of shoes, you’ve come to the right place.
It’s OK to buy a shoe because of hype, because it matches your favorite shirt or reminds you of shoes from your childhood. That’s what my weekly StockX picks are all about.
Enough rambling. Here are my top five golf shoes from StockX this week:
NIKE Air Max 270 Golf Shoes
The NIKE Air Max 270 will never be a top performer, and you won’t find it with the coveted MGS Most Wanted badge next to its name, but the shoe itself just looks so darned good. The NIKE Air Max 270 was originally intended to be a casual shoe, a “runner” as some call it, but NIKE gave it a small makeover to make it serviceable as a golf shoe.
We should be cautious not to put too much stock into what’s being worn by the professionals but PGA TOUR bomber Cameron Champ has been wearing this shoe for the last season or two. Does that make it OK to choose a shoe for reasons other than performance? You tell me. For my money, I’d absolutely wear this pair regardless of how they perform. The huge Air Max unit in the heel and sleek design have me feeling some type of way.
NIKE SB Dunk Low Golf Shoes
If you ask any shoe enthusiast what the most popular shoe is right now, most would probably mention the NIKE Dunk. This model was introduced in 1985 alongside the OG Air Jordan 1 and was billed as a college basketball shoe up until the 2000s when it became one of NIKE’s most popular skateboarding shoes.
Fast forward to the present day. The NIKE Dunk is extremely sought-after for casual wear and it looks like that same hype surrounds the golf-specific pair. I particularly love the nod to tradition with the wingtip-style leather upper. The NIKE Dunk Low Golf shown here is from 2006, making it even more rare. With NIKE’s recent affinity for turning their popular casual shoes into golf shoes, I really hope they bring the Dunk Golf shoe back into the retail lineup!
NIKE Roshe Golf Tour
This one is a little loud but stick with me. The “Safari Print” design has been a NIKE staple for a long time and it looks really good on the NIKE Roshe Golf Tour.
The Roshe Golf Tour is still the shoe of choice for Viktor Hovland and Tommy Fleetwood, despite it being nearly five years old. Like a trusted fairway wood, if it works there’s no need to upgrade, right?
Imagine rolling up to the first tee in a pair of these bad boys. What a power move! Although you’d better have the game to back it up if you plan on making a bold fashion statement like this.
Under Armour Spieth One Golf
One of the things I love about StockX is the platform’s expansive stock of older shoes. We’re almost six years removed from the launch of Jordan Spieth’s first signature shoe with Under Armour and you can still pick up a pair right now on StockX!
Maybe you’re a Spieth fan or just want to see what the technology was like way back in 2017. No matter the reason, it’s fun to look at the Under Armour Spieth One and see how far it has come. Maybe we should look at doing a full-on Spieth lineup comparison, 1-5! Let me know in the comments if you’d like to see something like that.
adidas CODECHAOS “Summer of Golf”
Finally, a pair that performs as good as it looks. The adidas CODECHAOS has been a welcome addition to adidas’s golf shoe line and this special “Summer of Golf” colorway adds some hype to the mix.
The inspiration for this color was drawn from the 1967 “Summer of Love” phenomenon that took place in San Francisco. This 2020 release was meant to symbolize a rallying cry for the game and the solace that some found in golf during the COVID-19 pandemic.
With a story like that and the performance to back it up, you really can’t go wrong with this pick!
Two Must-Have Accessories Straight from StockX
StockX started out as an online shoe marketplace but has expanded into all sorts of goods, including golf accessories. That’s good news for those of us who like finding those hidden gems, rare pieces and anything that will make us stand out on the course. Sound like something you’re interested in? Here are two limited golf accessories I found on StockX this week!
NIKE Golf Tiger Woods Heritage 86 Cap
You can never have too many golf hats and this one is too good to pass up. The Tiger fist-pump logo is amazing and the leather strap makes it look and feel premium. Unlike most items on StockX, this hat is surprisingly affordable, too. Act fast, deals like this won’t last long!
Palace Titleist Pro V1 Golf Balls
Who knew you could buy Pro V1’s from StockX? OK, this is a little misleading. Most of the golf balls available on StockX are limited-edition three-packs, meaning this is probably not something you’re buying for your next round. But for those of you who like to collect or display golf balls, the Palace x Titleist Pro V1 is a great option!
Are You Buying Into the Hype?
I’m not here to help you find the best performing golf shoe. My job is to introduce you to the other side of golf—dare I say the cool side?
StockX is full of super-rare and ultra-hyped golf shoes that are just waiting to be bought. Did any of my picks catch your eye? Drop me a line if you would consider buying any of the shoes (or accessories) listed above!
You wouldn’t believe the other 10,000 limited-run golf shoes we found.

I have 8 pair of FJ’s , 6 spiked 2 spikeless., 1 Duca del Cosma, 1 Etonic, 3 pair of Pumas, 1 pair Ecco, 2 pair Nike. I try to rotate so I never wear the same pair two rounds 8n a row.

I just bought 2 pairs of FootJoy’s “Dry Joys Premiere Series”, which means I now have a total of 5 pairs of golf shoes in the closet, 4 pairs of which are FootJoy and a lone pair of Nikes. The only reason I have a pair of Nike is that I won them in a golf tournament. I wanted to trade them in for a pair of FootJoy’s and even pay the difference, but the pro shop didn’t have a pair in my size.
I’ve never been a fan of the current state of golf shoes that are being peddled today. The golf shoe manufacturers that make leather lined shoes is getting smaller every year. The cheap synthetic materials they make golf shoes from nowadays is appalling. Call me old fashioned but my golf shoes need to be made of leather…inside and out. I find leather provides uncompromising comfort, stability, traction as well as providing water resistance.

As soon as I saw the first three shows were Nike you lost me. I will never buy another Nike product again because of the anti-police stance and kneeling before the National Anthem of Kaepernick.
Ryan Smith5 months ago
I will never wear Nike anything.

No BOA, no thanks….
Bob Lambert5 months ago
I haven’t ever had a pair of Nike shoes fit very well. I would probably wear eighth e Adidas or the U A shoes. Had great success with both of those brands
Guy Brown5 months ago
I have wide feet and most brands don’t fit me, I’ve tried 7 or 8 brands. The only brand that fit me properly are New Balance. The ones I am wearing are 2 years old and are spike less and still fit and perform like they were new.

I am a purist at heart and don’t care for the tennis shoe look. I was hesitant to try the Boa but found some foot Joys that still looked traditional and I love them…
Gary McKenzie5 months ago
I would only wear the Under Armour shoes.
Sean M5 months ago
I would wear the majority of these shoes. If it looks good, if it’s comfortable and the price is right, I’d buy it.
Favourites would be the Air Max, Adidas and Speith’s.
Roger5 months ago
I love the style. I don’t own any BOA shoes but totally believe in them. I currently own two pairs of Adidas and love them.

I have worn the NIKE AIR MAX 270 GOLF SHOES. really like the stance they put me in over the ball. feels like a very natural heel drop and theyre relatively supportive for a stylish shoe. That being said they are TERRIBLE for walking rounds. they are heavy as hell and very tight.
Larry T5 months ago
I would not object to wearing any of these. However, I am completely happy with my ECCO’s.
Todd Hassler5 months ago
The AIRMAX 270 is a horrible shoe. I have had 2 pairs and each pair has had the same issue as they start to squeak. Annoyingly Squeak!! I was in Atlanta’s Airport recently and heard the squeak. I knew exactly what that squeak was and almost didn’t have to look down, but I did, and a guy was walking right beside me with the AIRMAX270 on, I said something to him, and he has had the same experience as I did with my pair too. It is a comfortable shoe, but the squeaking is unreal. I tried different type of socks, foot powder everything I could think of, to stop the squeak but it is from the shoe itself. .

I’d wear the Adidas’s for sure not to Nike’s!
Bob Schmalbach5 months ago
Yes, I like some of them and would buy them.

Nike golf shoes? Really? I think they are trying to “exit” the golf footwear business like they did with hardgoods.
Scott Eichelberger5 months ago
I would wear the Nike Dunk. Takes me back to some favorite basketball shoes I once had. Who cares if they’re not the most stable on the course. They would only be worn on special occasions.
DJ Shack5 months ago
Sorry but a big NO WAY on me buying any Nike product. I banned Nike when they decided to be anti-police. I wouldn’t be caught dead buying Nike anything.
No3Jacks5 months ago
I only wear Ecco’s. I do not wear anything with a swoosh on it.
Michael5 months ago
Yes I would. I believe it is what is comfortable and affordable for you as a person.

I bought a pair of the FJ HyperFlex when they came out in the spring of 2021. They’re the most comfortable golf shoes I’ve ever worn. Love them. Didn’t get the BOA model, because I didn’t want to spend the extra $. I’ve always worn FJ because I had a problem with a pair many years ago, and the customer service was so good, I’ve stayed loyal.

I like the Under Armor Spieth One Golf shoes and wouldn’t having a pair on my feet the next round. As for the “wild” Nike Roshe Golf Tour shoes… looks wild as long as your game doesn’t go wild. I would rock up with a pair any day of the week
Thomas A5 months ago
Serious question: why would anyone wear a shoe with a midsole designed for running on asphalt to play a sport that requires 100% stability on a soft grass surface? The Dunk and Speith are the only shoes close to being appropriate for golf.
Guy5 months ago
I already have a summer & non-summer pairs of the Adidas Code Chaos, so would happily have them again. The Nike Air Max & Roshe I would absolutely have but haven’t bought due to the retail price.
The Under Armour & Nike SB shoes just look ugly, the latter look like uncomfortable skater shoes (probably the point but not for me).
Myron Bish5 months ago
I’d consider the Adidas shoes but have generally preferred spiked over non-spiked shoes. I won’t purchase any Nike products ever – their support of Colin Kaepernick is inexcusable. I won’t buy any Footjoy products since they are made in China, which is a clear enemy of the USA and freedom around the world.
Kevin C5 months ago
I’d wear just about any of the shoes. The Adidas look the nicest. I’ve had good luck with Adidas in the past. I would certainly buy the Adidas.

Totally agree with your comment – short and accurate!

I have been the Imelda Marcos of golf shoes ! A few years ago, I found ECCO to be most comfortable, but recently have become a big fan of G Fore.
