TV presenter wears golf shoes live on air

Dan Walker

BBC Breakfast host Dan Walker was caught out by viewers for his peculiar choice of golf-themed fashion on Tuesday morning.

Walker, 43, was called out by a fan for wearing what looked like a trainer and suit combo as he presented the BBC’s morning show.

However, Walker was quick to make light of the situation, pointing out that the shoes were actually the latest release from FootJoy.

The pictured shoes are FootJoy’s all-new Flex LE1 golf shoes, released last month.

The BBC presenter is well-known for his avid love of golf and recently won at the BMW PGA pro-am tournament at Wentworth.

The shoes are available in three colour options, grey, tan and navy.
