TG2: “What sneaker would you turn into a golf shoe?”

Published

on

“If you could turn any sneaker into a golf shoe, what would you pick?”

This question was first raised in our recent “Yo, GolfWRX?” episode, leading to a number of responses on Facebook — some better than others. So, for this week’s Two Guys Talkin’ Golf episode, equipment expert Brian Knudson and Editor Andrew Tursky discuss their top-3 sneaker picks to turn into golf shoes. Also, they discuss Tiger Woods’ reported club head speed of 128.4 mph, and whether that’s even possible.

Bonus Giveaway: We will select a random follower from our @TG2WRX Instagram page to win a Ping Vault 2.0 Dale Anser putter. Click here and press follow to enter. We will announce the winner in two weeks!

    Soap shoes with cleats, so I could grind the bench in the locker room after I shoot 99.

    What dress shoe would you turn into a golf shoe? I’d go with my slip-on loafers made in Spain. Or, in a pinch, my farm & ranch boots by Georgia Boots. I’ve actually used the latter on the range and practice putting green.

    Not sure what the obsession is with high tops / basketball shoes being turned into golf shoes. Apparently I’m the only one that gets really hot / sweaty feet when I play haha I do think Vans would sick bruhhhh #shaka

    Want to stop hearing of a$$holes at PGA Tour events? Stop selling them the golf shoes they wear. This isn’t rocket science.

    In the category of shoes that would actually work well, to add to Vans, I would love to see a pair of Nike Cortez. Maybe the old adidas Sambas or Gazelles. Skateboard shoes, too. Maybe DC shoes.
