Looking to buy a new pair of slip on golf shoes?
We’ve got you covered.
In this guide we’ve picked out the best slip on golf shoes from this year’s line ups.
But before we get to the shoes, let’s quickly answer a couple of questions…
What is a slip on golf shoe?
A slip on golf shoe is designed for you to be able to slip it on and off without untying the laces. In fact, some slip on golf shoes (like the adidas Adidas Matchcourse) don’t even have laces.
So yeah, the clue is in the name.
Why would you want a pair of slip on golf shoes?
Well if you’re like me (constantly running late for your tee time), a slip on golf shoe will save you a couple of minutes before each round. Basically, they’re convenient.
And they’ll also stop you wrecking the heel of your shoe by trying to squeeze your feet into tied golf shoes (mea culpa).
So now we know what they are and why you want them…. let’s look at the best slip on golf shoes available right now.
The 3 best slip on golf shoes for men
Slip on golf shoes are fairly new, so you won’t find a huge selection.
But fortunately, 3 of the world’s best golf shoe brands (Footjoy, Skechers, and adidas) have slip on options.
Let’s start with our #1 pick from Skechers.
1. Skechers Go Golf Elite 5 Slip In
There’s not a huge choice at the premium end for slip on golf shoes. We think that’s a bit of a gap in the market considering their growing popularity, but, it leaves us with a clear winner for the best slip on golf shoe this year, Skechers Go Golf Elite 5.
Let’s get this out of the way. Skechers is known for being a skate brand. But they’ve been upping their game in other sports (particularly golf) over the past few years, and their golf shoes now stand with the bigger brands like adidas and Footjoy. On the tour, you’ll see Matt Fitzpatrick, Matt Kuchar, and Brooke Henderson rocking a pair of Skechers on their feet.
And going back to that gap in the market, Skechers clearly saw it. Because the Go Golf Elite 5 slip on isn’t an afterthought, it literally sits right at the top of their range. Not only is it the best slip on golf shoe you can buy, it’s also the best Skechers golf shoe you can buy.
In terms of “slipping it on”, you’ll be able to do that completely hands free. And there’s a dial on the side (which Skechers call Twist Fit) you can adjust to tighten or loosen the fit according to your preference.
With Skechers background in the sneaker/skate world, they know how to make a comfortable shoe. So it’s no surprise that the Go Golf Elite 5 slip on is one of the most feet pleasing shoes around right now, with a Heel Pillow that will hold your foot snuggly in place, and a patented Arch Fit insole system that’s podiatist certified and backed by 20 years of Skechers own data.
It’s a spikeless shoe, but Skechers GRIPFLEX tech offers plenty of traction for all but perhaps the most aggressive of swingers. The synthetic upper is waterproof, and backed with a one year warranty from Skechers.
In summary, if you’re looking for the best slip on golf shoe this year, Skechers Go Golf Elite 5 is the one to buy.
2. adidas Men’s Matchcourse Spikeless Golf Shoe
We previously mentioned adicross FL slip on golf shoe here, and we were huge fans. Since then, Adidas has discontinued and released the Matchcourse Spikeless slip on golf shoe, which is even better!
They’re certainly much easier to slip on and off in comparison to the Footjoy’s mentioned above, no laces here!
It’s worth noting that you will sacrifice a little traction in comparison to your normal golf shoes. That said, for a dry course they’re going to be more than sufficient to keep you well planted on the green.
Like the Adicross, they really are as comfortable as they look.
Whilst the rubber sole gives you the grip you need on the course, the cushioned midsole means you get the comfort that many traditional golf shoes lack.
And with the upper part of the Matchless Spikeless golf shoe being water-resistant, this is one of the best slip on golf shoes for casual rounds.
3. FootJoy Men’s Club Casual Loafers
If you’re looking for a more dress-like slip on golf shoe from a top golf shoe brand, then the FootJoy Club Casual Loafers will look the part both on the course and in the club house.
They’re made from full grain leather, with a synthetic sole.
And while they might not look like actual golf shoes, trust us, they are. The sole uses FootJoy’s proprietary DuraMax rubber compound to offer decent grip and traction.
Again, we’d probably recommend wearing these for casual rounds rather than tournament play. But if you want a pair of golf shoes that you can wear to the office, then head straight out onto the golf course with, then these are an excellent choice.
Not the cheapest golf shoes around, but they’ve got to be the smartest!
The 2 best slip on golf shoes for women
Lots of best golf shoe guides ignore women. We don’t.
So here are our top 2 picks for women’s slip on golf shoes this year.
1. FootJoy Women’s Leisure Slip-on Golf Shoes
Again, FootJoy is our top pick.
And again, their slip on shoes for women are all-round great golf shoes.
They’re waterproof, comfortable, and breathable with excellent grip and traction courtesy of a DuraMax sole.
And the pull tab at the back makes them super easy to slip on and off before and after a round.
2. Puma Women’s Tustin Golf Shoe
A no frills appearance, but a super comfortable golf shoe.
Puma Tustin are as slip on as you can get, looking more like gym shoes than golf shoes.
But there’s hidden traction in the sole, which should be plenty for dry conditions and casual rounds.
A good pair of golf shoes for carrying in your bag in case you suddenly get the urge to grab a quick 9 holes after work.
But for more serious golf, we’d probably go with the FootJoys.
Looking for more golf shoe options?
That rounds it up for our pick of this year’s best slip on golf shoes.
There’s not a huge selection at the moment. But we’re expecting more golf brands to introduce slip on options over the next few years, so we’ll be sure to update our guide when they do.
And in the meantime, head over to our guide to this year’s best golf shoe brands if you need a little more choice.
