Women’s golf shoes were bought to America in 1940.? They were created by FootJoy.? Although in 1940 when they were first introduced the FootJoy for ladies looked like a man’s shoe.? Nowadays, they are designed especially for women’s feet.? So now women have their won line rather than dragging around in a shoe made to fit the proportions of a man’s foot.

Along with the evolution of the women’s golf shoe comes the emergence of women on the golf course.? Today there are 5.76 million ladies in need of a good quality, comfortable and durable pair of golf shoes.? The reason for the change in the design was because of the many women who began complaining the game who didn’t like walking around in uncomfortable leather golf shoes with metal spikes.? Today, in women and men’s designs they can find rubber soles with leather uppers and soft spikes or plastic nubs.? In 1990 non-metal spikes were introduced.? The 1970’s saw the emergence of rubber soles.? In the 1980’s Etonic designed the first shoes (for men and women) with waterproof treated leather.

Decades have passed since the introduction of ladies footwear.? Designer brands such as Sandbaggers, Adidas, Nike, and more keep coming up with innovative ideas to enhance their products.? Sandbagger creations were bought about by Joan Villani, who being an avid golfer herself, could appreciate the need for more coolness and comfort in a golf shoe.

With the length of time it takes for a woman to play a round of golf the amount of walking will turn into miles.? As a result, women’s golf shoes have to be able to sustain the weight of constant walking about, as well as, absorbing the heels shock.? They have to be very comfortable and durable as well.

Women don’t only want to feel good but they like to look stylish as well, even on the golf course.? Traction also comes into play.?? No one wants to slip and fall on wet grass.?
