Proper care and attention is required to maintain and prolong the look, performance, feel and comfort of golf shoes. Faced with a wide range of hazards, both leather and synthetic golf shoes must be thoroughly cleaned and properly stored between rounds in order to prolong the look and life of the shoes.
- We recommend rotating shoes between rounds - properly maintained the rotation of two pairs of shoes will last much longer than twice the life of a single pair.
- Use a shoe horn when putting on your golf shoes to protect the heel counter of the shoe.
- Check your cleats between rounds to ensure they are intact and secured properly into their respective receptacles, but DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN your cleats.
- Do not store your golf shoes in your car boot, where high temperatures can break down shoe materials resulting in decreased lifespan of your shoes.
- We strongly recommend leaving Cedar shoe trees in your golfing shoes at all times when shoes are not in use.
Pre-Round Shoe Care
Use a shoe horn when putting on your golf shoes. This will protect the heel counter of the shoe. Damage to the heel counter can cause improper fit in the heel which can lead to blistering and overall discomfort.
Post-Round Shoe Cleaning & Care
Clean leather or synthetic golfing shoes after each round by removing dirt and residue using mild soap and water. Allow to air dry at room temperature.
Wet Shoes: If your shoes become soaked during a round,
- Clean them quickly.
- Place crumpled newspaper inside for 8-10 hours to soak up all excess water.
- Remove newspaper and ideally replace with Cedar Shoe Trees. Cedar shoe trees will bring the uppers back to normal shape, smooth the linings and absorb any remaining water and odour. The absorption properties of cedar make them far more effective than plastic shoe trees.
- Remove the laces when cleaning.
- If not glued into the shoe, remove the inner sole when cleaning your golf shoes.
- Do not place your shoes in direct sunlight to dry, but rather allow them to air-dry in a shaded area or indoors.
- NEVER dry your shoes using a blow-dryer or by putting them on any external heat source. Excessive heat can damage both the uppers and the outsoles.
All non-leather outsoles should be wiped clean of dirt and residue after every round.
Check to ensure that all cleats are intact and secured properly into their respective receptacles. DO NOT OVER-TIGHTEN THE CLEATS.
