Are $80 Golf Shoes Too Good to Be True?

I would never tell anyone how to spend their money, but…

The Nike Rosche G Golf Shoes are terrific. The best part is, they’re $80.

I have walked 3 rounds in them, and I could not be more impressed. I walked the most elevated, hardest to walk course near me and felt great after 18 both times. The third 18, I walked a much easier course but still over 6.5 miles of walking.


The traction is outstanding. The bulk of the sole (the white portion) is soft foam rubber like a running shoe. The colored part on the sole is the same texture, but raised and made of a much more dense rubber. That should keep them from wearing too quickly.

These provided such great traction on STEEP hills, both ascending and descending, that they had me wondering if I should just be wearing running shoes to Golf in. These are essentially running shoes with “spikes” on the bottom.

I did not wear these in wet conditions. These are not waterproof, so I would obviously not wear them when it’s super wet or raining.

As for morning dew, these should fare well. I trekked over grass that was still damp late morning and the grip was still great. If anything the water gave me that annoying high-tops-on-the-hardwood squeaky grip.


There were no heel slips, no lack of arch support, no blisters, and for sure no lack of overall comfort. I wore them with very low-cut, boat shoe liner socks to really test the shoes while simultaneously lowering my sock tan lines.

Who They’re For:

If you’re a fair-weather golfer, you NEED these.

If you golf in hot conditions, these are as breathable as you’re going to get.

If you walk, these are the most comfortable golf shoes I’ve had. If you cart, I can’t imagine why you wouldn’t want these slippers on while joy riding.

Who They’re NOT For:

If you live in London or somewhere it rains every day, pass on these.

If you want to think that great golf shoes need to be over $200, you’ve already written these off.



Everyone’s feet are different. Be sure to try some on.

The only real negative is that the footbeds are glued in. Other than that, I have zero complaints!
