Drying your Golf shoes

Let the golf shoes air dry at room temperature before storing them. Avoid placing them in the sun to dry, or near a heater or any other external heat source. If you were playing in the rain and your shoes have soaked, place newspapers inside them to help absorb excess moisture.

Polish once in a while  

It is a good idea to polish your shoes every once in a while. Polishing once a month is sufficient to achieve the purpose. It will not only help maintain their appearance but also their structure and thus increase their life.

Keep a check on the spikes

Make it a habit to check the condition of the spikes after every round. Plastic spikes wear down easily after regular use. Replacement spikes are easily available in the market. If any spikes need replacement, simply unscrew them with a spike wrench and replace them with new spikes.


Place cedar shoe trees inside the shoes before storing them. Cedar shoe trees absorb any moisture left in the shoes and maintain the shape of the shoe thus enabling them to survive longer.  After placing cedar shoe trees inside them, store the shoes in a golf bag to keep them safe. It is advisable to keep a golf bag with a netted design to prevent bacterial growth due to moisture.
