Let’s face it, playing golf at this time of year is largely down to the weather.

And if you are heading out on the course, you need to make sure you’re wearing appropriate footwear to keep you protected from the damp ground underfoot.

If you’re a regular golfer you’ll no doubt have a dependable pair of winter golf shoes at the ready to complete your outfit, but have you heard of golf boots? Brands like FootJoy makes specific boots to keep you feeling comfy and focused on the course throughout the winter months.

Picture yourself out on the golf course right now. You’re playing well but the winter winds are whipping at your heels. You’re needing to step tentatively around the well-worn pathways where the mud is at its thickest.

As we’ve hinted at, these golf boots will stop you from slipping over on the wintery golf course. Whether you’re navigating pathways between holes or climbing a skiddy slope, you’ll have the ideal degree of underfoot traction needed to keep your focus and balance. Plus, any mud or dirt your pick up is easy to wipe off, so getting back in to the clubhouse is never a chore.

Losing your footing can throw you off your game, but you’ll be totally at ease when you’re playing in a sturdy golf boot. So, why not join us as we take a closer look at FootJoy’s latest golf boot, the Stormwalker.

Both the Men’s Stormwalker Golf Boots and Ladies Winter Golf Boots effortlessly combine eye-catching style with durable performance to bring you a truly comfortable golf boot.

The boot features a full grain leather construction and thermal lining on the interior, so any mud will be easy to clean off once you’ve finished your round and your feet will feel warm and content the entire time you’re walking about.

What makes these boots ideal for golf over any typical winter boot is the traction you’ll get on the course thanks to the Pulsar cleats found on the sole. These cleats will keep you in firm connection with the ground even when the winter elements have made the firmness of the fairways moist and changeable.

There’s a misconception that golf boots must feel rather large and cumbersome to keep you protected from the climate, but this is simply not the case. These boots offer a more athletic toe profile.

Please let us know if you’d like to try the appropriate pair of boots on, we’d be more than happy to help.
