Golf Shoes Recommendations for Arthritic feet.


Recommended Posts

I need a recommendation for soft spike golf shoes that have really good support for an old golfer that has arthritic feet. I started walking this summer but due to severe pain in my foot, I am now back riding a cart. When I am not playing golf, I have to wear a boot. My doctor does not play golf so he has no idea on any golf shoes to recommend. I am almost to the point where I may have to give up golf for a few months but for me, that is an option that I do not want to do.

All suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Not sure about arthritic feet, but I have some soreness/stiffness and will say that stiffer more structured shoes hurt more than the more pliable versions. I am not really talking about sole cushion per se, but there has to be a balance of the elements for me - pliability, cushion, heel drop, toe box width.

 

Not sure I have ever found the perfect shoe..

You may have to go the way of orthotics, they do make a huge difference. As for shoes look at New Balance or Asics, they're mainly a running shoe company but they know cushioning well. But I've noticed a lot of golf shoes have less than ideal or even awful foot support and as someone with really flat feet walking can be brutal for me.

I'd suggest talking to the guys at Sqairz.  I have trouble finding shoes that are comfortable and the Sqairz have worked out really well for me.  I've moved to them exclusively and no issues with sore feet any longer.  Any questions, pm me and I'll discuss with you.

I have encountered years of feet pain and went through numerous pairs of shoes. Everything i tried would not make it 9 holes. The only golf shoe i found that kept me close to pain free is code chaos. I could get to hole 15 +/- before my feet started showing signs of pain, but the heels wore out after 2 months. So i tried something different...Vans. Got some Vans Ultrarange Exos and they are great. Light weight, roomy toe box, and plenty of grip. Only negative is they are not waterproof. I can get 15-16 holes before pain starts in. Got the for $70 compared to $140+ for typical golf shoe i bought. Good luck!

I don't know if a solid, structured shoe like Sqairz is good for arthritic feet or not, but since I got my first pair here as a reviewer I will not wear any other brand of golf shoe. I find them that comfortable and even performance enhancing with better stability and balance and now have 4 pair! PM me with any questions.
