Although spikeless golf shoes are becoming ever more popular, there’s still a big demand for spiked golf shoes 2024 has to offer.

If you’re someone who plays golf in difficult conditions, where you’re likely to slip on uneven surfaces, having a solid pair of spiked shoes is a huge benefit.

There’s a reason that tour pros, who often play on pristine surfaces, wear them, too, as that extra level of confidence can help you swing your very best.

The company that has Erik van Rooyen as part of its roster doesn't mess about.

PROS

  • BOA system ensures a snug fit
  • Ecco performance leather will last for ages
  • Would keep your feet dry in a swimming pool (probably)

A footwear brand that not only focusses on golf, but is known for its casual shoes too, they are always going to provide you with great comfort.  

The Ecco M Biom G5’s are no different, with support, stability and a snug fit guaranteed. These aren’t just comfortable, but extremely stable, too. The Pivix spikes are combined with additional grooves on the outsole of the shoe for supreme traction on any surface.  

These are undoubtedly a great option for a golfer looking for excellent build quality in their spiked golf shoes.

A more sporty look from FootJoy will appeal to plenty of players.

PROS

  • All the colourways look smashing
  • You know you're getting durability with carbon
  • Great stability through your swing

CONS

  • As is often the case with FJ, you need proper socks on or you might be uncomfortable
Available for £189.99 from FootJoy

The No.1 shoe in golf has a huge array of spiked and spikeless golf shoes and we love the Hyperflex Carbon as an option for 2024. A modern looking shoe with fantastic performance, these are a great choice.
 
These shoes are going to provide incredible stability and all-day comfort on the course. The combination of the firm FTF+ midsole wrapped with a thermoplastic outsole wing enhances stability across your entire foot. The Power Stabiliser design extends your connection to the ground for greater leverage and maximum energy transfer. 

Not only do these shoes look superb, but they offer top quality performance too.

If you had to draw a golf shoe, you would probably draw these.

PROS

  • Supreme stability and comfort on the course
  • Variety of colourways
  • The addition of spikes only adds to a top quality shoe

CONS

  • Again, thin socks don't mix with these
Available for £169 from FootJoy

If you want something a little more traditional from FootJoy, look no further than the Premiere Series Field. We were delighted to see these shoes being offered with spikes in 2024, which is going to appeal to a wide range of player. 

While there’s a wide range of FootJoy shoes that carry the classic traditional look, the FootJoy Premiere Series Field has always stood out to us. Now that they come with spikes, we have no problem including them in this list. The VersaTrax+ outsole is engineered with traction elements to deliver excellent performance on any surface.  

While it’s subjective, we think these are some of the best-looking shoes on the market right now. They perform very well too.

Rory McIlroy wears these shoes. What else is there to say?

PROS

  • Great look if you want something sporty
  • Spike system has been well thought out
  • Great comfort as you would expect from Nike

CONS

  • Not a huge upgrade on previous editions, but they were great too
Available for £102.49 from Nike

Another footwear giant, you can be sure that you’re getting quality shoes with Nike. The Air Zoom Victory Tour 3 is no different, with plenty of tour pros opting to wear these, a sure sign of quality.  

These feature spikes in all the key areas of your sole, with the Silver Tornado spikes from Softspikes giving you grip in the lateral and heel locations. These will help to give you traction in all conditions on the golf course. Inside the shoe, there’s internal foam pads which cushion your heel, giving you the best possible comfort on the course.  

If you’re looking for an iconic brand to wear on the course and prefer a sporty look, you can’t go wrong with the Nike Air Zoom Victory Tour 3.

Payntr X 004 RS
A brand that started out making cricket shoes is going to nail comfort.

PROS

  • Out of the box comfort
  • Enough stability for one of the longest hitters on the planet (bunkered's Gear Editor!)
  • Helps you get maximum energy from your swing

CONS

  • Need to go down a size which might confuse some
  • Price point puts them up against the big players
Available for £169.99 from Payntr

This might not be a name you’re familiar with, but Payntr is an upcoming brand in the golf shoe game. They’re becoming better known and that’s because they make quality footwear, just like the X 004 RS.  

If you struggle with blisters with golf shoes, then these could very well be the option for you. These come with a blister-free guarantee, something we’ve not seen in golf shoes before. James Tait reviewed them in 2023 and has used them on the course regularly since then. If they provide enough stability for a man who can drive the ball 452 yards, then they’ll provide stability for you and I. 

A great option, particularly if you want something that stands out from the crowd.

You'll do well to find a more scientific shoe on the market in 2024.

PROS

  • UA's most comfortable shoe to date
  • Impressive tech is instantly noticeable
  • Categorically proven to improve your game

CONS

  • We're yet to find a fault with these
Available for £150 from Under Armour (On-Sale February 1)

A brand-new addition to the market for 2024, there’s no shortage of technology included in the Under Armour Drive Pro shoes. These have been designed with the help of JJ Rivet and Jordan Spieth, a pretty formidable pairing of technical know-how and golf talent.  

These shoes feature a revolutionary three-layer system, which supports the natural movement of the golfer, with biomechanically correct diagonal and lateral support for golfers to unlock the power in their swing. In the midsole, UA has developed the only dual-density midsole in golf. Featuring Under Armour’s ‘Hovr Foam’ and a more supportive ‘Charged Cushioning’ where it’s needed to help guide the foot in the swing.  

All that tech is great, but these really do make a difference to your on-course experience, such is their comfort. We’re big fans.
