Why Golf Shoes Matter - These Shoes Were MADE for Golfing! For someone who likes shoes, but loves golf more, I can tell you that finding the right pair of golf shoes is essential for both men and women golfers alike. I have a minor fondness with shoes, but not to the extent that other women have. While I like to splurge a little bit on a nice pair here and there, I have never shelled out a lot of money on most of the shoes in my collection. For me, shoes have to function as part of an outfit and not as something that the whole outfit is mirrored around.
