1. Waterproof Shoes Without Fail
The first line of defense in protecting your feet when hitting the greens in the coming months is to help them stay dry.  Waterproof shoes are a must at this time of the year.  There is nothing more uncomfortable than walking around in soggy footwear, squishing around as you go along.  Keep your concentration focused on your game and not your cold, wet feet by investing in a pair of waterproof golf shoes.  The Ashworth Leather Cardiff Shoes are the perfect balance of contemporary style and functionality for the 2013 season.  Available in a variety of colour ways and materials there’s something for everyone.  Complete with a two-year waterproof warranty you can rest assured that you’ll be prepared to tackle whatever conditions await you at tee-time.

For a more timeless look on the greens the Stuburt DCC Classic Golf Shoe offers traditional golfers the perfect look this season.  Designed by PGA Tour great Darren Clark, the DCC provides superior protection against the elements in a classic style suitable for any course.  For a subtle modern twist try the DCC in White/Black/Ceylon for a bold burst of colour sure to get you noticed.  For the ladies Nike offers a supreme choice with its sleek and contemporary Delight IV collection.  Offered in three colour ranges you can find the perfect option to best suit your golfing needs.  Made all the more attractive by a 1-year waterproof guarantee, ensuring you’re covered throughout play this autumn/winter season.
2. Dry Socks for a Mid-Game Foot Boost
Even with the best protection and waterproofing safe guards you might find your feet still manage to feel wet and cold halfway through your 18 holes.  It’s always better to be over prepared rather than risk being uncomfortable.  Packing an extra pair of socks is a great idea, especially during the wet and windy season.  Giving you the option to treat your feet to the ultimate pick-me-up if necessary.  The Glenmuir Dunbar Cotton Cushioned Golf Socks offer comfort and protection when you need it most.  Superior quality and craftsmanship associated with the longstanding Scottish brand are an added and reliable bonus.  For the golfer hoping to make a statement from the feet up there’s the Ashworth Argyle Crew Golf Socks.  Perfect for giving you a subtle yet coolly distinct look.

And for the ladies, you can’t go wrong with the FootJoy ProDry Extreme Quarter Socks.  The precise formula of soft yet flexible material combines with superior moisture controlling technology to produce a high-performance sock that’s able to keep you cool and dry throughout your round.  So don’t forget to pack your extra socks this autumn.  You never know, it could make the difference in momentum needed to get you through a soggy round!
3. Select Mud-Reducing Colours and Materials

If your first priority after a great day of golf isn’t cleaning your white shoes until they sparkle, you might benefit from choosing a darker shade golf shoe for the autumn/winter season.  As the wet and windy conditions intensify so does the amount of mud on the course.  Meaning shoes can take a serious battering while you’re perfecting that swing.  Caked on mud can be difficult to clean and can also leave stains on lighter materials.  Choosing a richer shade of footwear is a great way to lessen the effects of mud and help keep you looking clean and fresh on the course in the coming months.  For a super traditional yet totally stylish option try the Stuburt DCC Classic Golf Shoe in Black.  Designed by the 2011 Open Champion Darren Clark, you can be assured of its authenticity and superior performance.  While the all-black finish makes for easy cleaning, ensuring your footwear is crisp and ready for action at a moment’s notice.  For the golfer who wants a bit more street style in his golf shoes, try the adidas Mens Samba in Black/White/Gum.  The shoe’s dark base and sole help to protect it from the mud, while the classic Samba style speaks to golfers of a younger generation hoping for a more fashion-forward look on the greens.  

For juniors Nike offers a great option with the Remix II.  A dark shoe for young golfers looking to wear styles associated with a top brand that keep in time with latest fashion trends.  The kids will love them and you’ll be thankful the mud stains stay at bay, keeping their golf shoes in good condition throughout the season.  Ladies looking for supreme performance golf shoes in a darker shade this season will be more than impressed by the adidas Adizero Tour Golf Shoes in Black.  The super lightweight and waterproof material supports and comforts feet, while providing ultimate protection during your round.
4. Soft Spikes for Better Grip
In the spring/summer season hard ground means it’s possible to complete a round wearing the new model of golf shoes, sporting dimpled soles rather than spikes.  As the weather changes and rain begins to soften the course it’s important to wear shoes that have greater grip in order to prevent slipping and give you a better base throughout your swing.  Soft spiked golf shoes are a necessity for any player this autumn/winter to ensure you complete the course safely and efficiently.  At GolfOnline we carry a wide variety of soft spiked golf shoes perfect for complementing the many styles of golfers today.  From the traditional look and ultra comfy fit of the adidas Mens Golflite 5WD to the more modern contours and bold colour schemes of the Puma PG Clyde Golf Shoes, you’ll find something to match whatever your golfing needs.  Those looking to replace soft spikes on their beloved golf shoes can also find what they need at GolfOnline.  Including SoftSpikes Pulsar Spikes and tools to assist the changing process like the Champ MaxPro Wrench.
5. Shoe Protection and Care
It’s not enough to have the right spikes, colour and water protection.  If you don’t take care of your shoes they won’t last and will be less likely to perform to their best capabilities.  Ensuring spikes are clean and soles clear of dirt and debris is an important piece in achieving your best level of play.  The Champ Dual Brush Golf Spike Tool is perfect for removing mud from soft spikes and brushing away dirt from the top of shoes.  A fantastic clip on the handle allows this tool to be conveniently hung from your golf bag, giving you perfect and easy access when you’re immersed in a game.  

Once your shoes are particle-free take the time to properly clean and prepare them so they’re ready for your next round, storing them in a shoe bag, like the sleek Nike Sport Golf Shoe Tote Bag, to maintain good condition.  When you buy any golf shoes this week at GolfOnline we are offering 10% off the Ecco Shoe Accessories range.  This includes waterproof spray, foam cleaner and the ultimate Ecco Leather Shoe Care Kit.  Perfect for weather proofing and protecting your golf shoe investments this autumn.
