Feet Don't Fail Me Now!

This may be a bit of a mundane subject but wearing the proper shoes can be a big help if you're a walker. If you're a rider then wear pink bunny slippers, who cares. Well here's 7 tips for picking the proper pair of shoes from Shoes Brands Blog (catchy name):

1. Always wear the same socks you golf in when trying on new golf shoes
2. Don’t wear socks that are too tight or tend to scrunch up.
3. Check the fit of the shoes by standing on one foot. You should be able to wiggle your toes, and when you stand on tiptoe the shoes should bend where your foot bends.
4. The fit around the middle of the shoe should feel tighter than with ordinary shoes. This is where you get the most support when swinging the club. Don’t overworry about the tightness because all shoes will stretch a little after you have worn them a few times.
5. There should be no more or less than about a half inch of space from your big toe to the end of the golf shoe.
6. It is important to make sure that the shoe and the widest part of your foot are a comfortable fit, without being too loose. Loose fitting shoes cause your feet to slide when you swing the club, and you lose stability, essential for good golf.
7. If the shoe fits all the above criteria, but is a little loose, then use an insole to make the fit a little tighter

And the 8th tip is mine: If the shoe fits, you must acquit!
