The Best Golf Shoes For Performance And Support

OluKai golf shoes might be the most comfortable you’ll ever wear on the green. We're serious about our golf game, which is why we've crafted a collection specifically for golfers like us—those who prefer to walk. Featuring anatomically contoured arch support, our classic Drop In Heel, and removable, washable footbeds (a key feature for golfers spending all day out in the sun), OluKai golf shoes are designed to perform from tee to green, rain or shine.


Speaking of varying conditions, we know how crucial it is for your golf shoes to endure all types of weather. That's why we've ensured they include performance features such as a stain and water-resistant coating, an updated outsole for stability and grip, and an ultra-lightweight midsole with extra cushioning to keep you comfortable and energized, no matter the duration of your round. With top-notch arch support, you've got the ultimate golf shoe for all-day wear. 



What The Players Are Saying


Remember earlier we said our golf shoe collection features “the most comfortable golf shoes you’ll ever wear”? Believe us, we wouldn’t have made such a bold claim if we didn’t plan on backing it up. That’s why we brought together a few experts in the field to join us on Hawai’i Island to test out the collection. Here’s what they had to say:


Hunter Larson, PGA Professional


Hunter is a Class A PGA Professional and Pro Golfer who’s been playing for almost 30 years. He’s well-accomplished in the sport, earning titles like Player Captain 2010 USGA State Team Championship: Team Hawaii and 2019 Aloha Section PGA Assistant Professional of the Year (among others). With that kind of track record, we knew he’d put our products to the ultimate test.


“They stayed with me on every single swing and are extremely comfortable. This is the first time I’ve had arch support in a golf shoe.”

Hannah Gregg, Pro Golfer


Hannah Gregg is a Pro Golfer on the Epson Tour and Women’s All Pro Tour. She co-owns a golf training aid company called Short Game Gains to help people improve their golf skills in an accessible way. Hannah needs a high-performance golf shoe that can keep up with her on any type of terrain, round after round. For her, lasting comfort and solid grip are two of the most important qualities.


"There was no breaking in or uncomfortable rounds. I like how they’re spikeless and still have enough grip for me to feel comfortable playing. My feet feel awesome.”


Blair Wheeler, 10 Hdcp


Blaire Wheeler grew up in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and has been golfing for the past 19 years. He took some time away from the sport to focus on surfing but recently fell in love with it again out of “sheer competitiveness”. As a waterman, Blair was excited to see OluKai enter the golf space.


“The epitome of a perfect golf shoe for any environment and situation.”


Reece Alnas, PGA Professional


Reece was born and raised in Waikoloa Village on Hawai‘i Island and spends most of his days on the golf course. He’s been an Assistant Golf Professional at Kuki‘o Golf and Beach Club for seven years, which means he knows the best gear in the game. According to Reece, when it comes to shoes, comfort means everything.


“I fell in love with these before I even put them on. They are comfortable, breathable, easy to slip on and off, and have very good grip.”


Kaira Martin, 3 Hdcp


Kaira Martin played golf competitively from the age of six and all the way through college, picking up her first club at just three years old. These days, Kaira is focused on playing for fun and empowering female golfers. She’s turned her expertise into a social media career and always has the best gear recommendations.


“These are incredibly comfortable and I love that they’re so transitional. I can go from the course out to dinner, and they still have the performance of a high-quality golf shoe.”

Shota Tikata, PGA and JPGA Tour Caddy


As a golf caddy on tour, Shota spends a lot of his time walking the course. That being said, footwear choices can make or break his day. Shota typically looks for a pair of golf shoes that are supportive, stable, and have the ability to adjust to different terrains. We designed OluKai Golf to deliver all of that and more.


“I encounter all kinds of terrains and having a golf shoe that can adapt to any of those gives me the comfort and stability to play my best golf game.”

Men’s Manele, Kā‘anapali and Women’s Kawela Golf Shoes


Long walks down the fairway require a golf shoe that can keep up. These lightweight and breathable sneakers have all the support and stability you need—no slipping, just comfort. We crafted them with water and stain-resistant materials like breezy mesh and an extra responsive midsole for comfort round after round.


The outsole construction features a kalo-inspired, full-rubber spikeless design for multi-directional traction and non-marking Wet Grip Rubber, making these the ultimate casual golf sneakers. They're perfect for days when you need to stay light on your feet. Blair Wheeler put it best when he said, "You could go straight from the beach to the links. You don't even need socks."
