3 Ways Golf Shoes Help Improve Your Game, Manhattan, New York

Buying new golf shoes could improve your game out on the greens. Shoes designed specifically for golfing offer a few perks that will help make your game better. For the largest and best selection of golf shoes, stop by New York Golf Center in Midtown.

Here are three ways purchasing golf shoes will help you on the golf course:

  • Stability: Golf shoes have built-in stabilizers along the arches to keep feet from shifting and sliding during a swing. This support becomes necessary for driving the ball since golfers end strokes on the balls of their feet. Golf shoes sometimes also feature spikes, which help prevent sliding on wet or uneven grass.
  • Golf ShoesBalance: Players will gain better balance during their golf swing due to the broader base of a golf shoe. Golf shoes have a larger sole than other athletic shoes, giving golfers a more solid foundation for the stationary stance a golf swing needs. Regular running shoes are not ideal because they do not have this base as they are designed for quicker foot motion.
  • Flexibility: Golfers are sometimes forced to maneuver on uneven ground, hills, and slopes. While other athletic shoes are rigid to keep feet and ankles stable, golf shoes provide elasticity so they can be flexible on any terrain.
  • Comfort: Golf shoes are also comfortable, as they are designed for walking the long distances necessary for 18 holes. They also breathe more than other shoes and are waterproof.

If you are in the Manhattan area and need golf equipment, New York Golf Center has everything you need for your next game, from golf clubs and balls to bags and apparel. To pick up a new pair of golf shoes, stop by one of their three locations or call (212) 564-0078 for more information.
