Golf Shoe Fitting Tips (courtesy of footjoy.com)

 



In an effort to offer the best possible fit, please consider the following tips:

  • Determine your size and width using a Brannock
    Device®,  A Brannock Device, shown here, has been the shoe fitting standard for over 70 years.  Generally, most on or off course shops have one of these in the shoe department.  This device measures heel to toe length, arch length, and width. It is best to have a shop associate help you with the measurement. 

  • Look at the general shape of your foot.  The Brannock Device helps you measure the length and width of your foot, however, it does not measure volume.  Selecting the appropriate last to match your unique fit characteristics can help address the question of volume --  a full foot requires a wider/ fuller last and a narrow foot requires a sleeker/ narrower last.

  • Check the break of the leather.  Too much breaking or bunching of the leather in the forefoot is a sign that your foot is not filling the volume of the shoe and that the shoe may be too wide.

  • Ensure that the laces are adequately comfortable on both shoes.  The proper lacing is demonstrated when the top eyelets are approximately 5/8” apart.  If the top eyelets touch, then the shoe may be too wide and iIf the top eyelets are more than 5/8” apart, the shoe may be too narrow.
  • Check for slippage.  Slipping in the heel or movement in the forefoot may indicate an incorrect size. 
  • Walk through the shop, testing your shoes for comfort.

FootJoy Last Library:

Not all shoes are created equal.  The shape of the shoe depends on the characteristics of the Last.  The LAST, originally made of wood and now made of composite plastics, is the form of the foot around which the shoe is shaped.  Last characteristics vary based on the goals of the shoe’s fit and appearance.  When considering a shoe, consider the characteristics of the Last.
