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