Budget golf shoes for "junior" golfer with rapidly-growing feet?


Recommended Posts

Son just turned 15. He's starting to develop the level of game and swing speed where he probably should move up from golfing in sneakers to actual golf shoes with a little traction. 

 

Kid's already almost 6' tall with size 11 shoes. Which is why I quoted "junior", as he's at least at an age where I can buy him adult shoes. But he doesn't play often enough that he can wear out a pair of golf shoes before he outgrows them. So there's little point in spending $100 on a pair of shoes he's going to grow out of in 5-6 months. 

 

So if you were looking at golf shoes, price being a major component and durability isn't a tremendous concern, but obviously not something that is utter trash (i.e. if you're walking multiple miles every round, you don't want *bad* shoes, of course)... 

 

What do you have in mind? 

Ping G25 10.5* w/ Diamana 'ahina 70 x5ct stiff (set -0.5 to 10*)

Sub70 699 Pro 3 Utility w/ Recoil 680 F4

Wishon EQ1-NX 4h, 5i-GW single-length built to 37.5" w/ Nippon Modus3 120 stiff

Sub70 286 52/10, 286 56/12, and JB 60/6 wedges, black, built to 36.75" w/ Nippon Modus3 120 stiff

Sub70 Sycamore Mallet putter @ 36.5" with Winn midsize pistol grip

Thanks. Those look like decent dual-purpose (golf and non-golf) options and for a SoCal teen, probably would be stylish too.

 

We just bought him his sneakers for the school year, so for now I'm looking more golf-specific (and a bit lower cost if they're golf-specific) but I'll keep those in mind when he grows out of his current sneakers.

Good call here if he’s not a first-light player who wants a waterproof shoe. 

 

You can get good deals on Rock Bottom Golf or Budgetgolf, I’ve bought many a pair from those sites at deep discounts.

  Ping G425 Max Driver, 4W, 7W....+2"

  Maltby KE4 9W....+2"

  Sub 70 699U 5i - 7i, 699 8i - AW....all +4"

  Sub 70 286 Forged 56 degree

  LAB DF 2.1 putter, nickel, 38" / 67

Thanks guys. Looks like both Rock Bottom and BudgetGolf would have at least some options in the <$50 range, so I should be good to go.

 

Appreciate it!

There’s always deals to be found on closeout 1 - 2 yrs old styles of golf shoes. I’ve seen some as low as $40 on budget golf, rock bottom golf, and many other sites.
