Golf shoes have come a long way. The first known golf shoes were simply regular shoes with nails hammered through the sole. These were bad for the greens and the clubhouse floors, but especially for the golfer if they pushed back up into the shoe. Shoes with screw-in metal spikes were introduced in the late 1800s, but they were very damaging to golf courses. In the early 1900s, a rage for saddle Oxford shoes in tennis spilled over into golf, and this became the standard look for most of the 20th century. Improvements in athletic shoes in the 1980s fed desire for more comfortable, flexible golf shoes, but it wasn’t until the 1990s that the metal spikes were replaced with plastic. More recently, spikeless shoes and lightweight shoes have become trendy. One thing all these shoes have in common is a love of the game and a desire to play it without discomfort or danger of slipping.
