Even non-athletes are aware of the preeminence of Nike in athletic footwear, so it’s not surprising that this brand comes in at #1 on our list. Its regular version does have a rather narrow width, and for those of us who need wide golf shoes, that simply won’t cut it. But the wide width golf shoes version is a welcome revelation.

The traction and lateral support is more than adequate, but the comfort level is truly out of this world. Perhaps we’re rhapsodic about the TW 13 because those of us who need wide width golf shoes don’t always get the right size 13 golf shoes with the right width. But there’s no denying just how utterly comfortable it is to wear this pair of extra wide golf shoes.
It’s probably not just the width. It’s also because of the ergonomic design that fits the natural motion of our feet that really makes the difference. They’re very easy to break in, and it’s almost like they’re already broken in when you get them. It feels like you can just lace up this pair of golf shoes plus and play at your best.
In any case, in golf it goes a long way in improving your game when you feel utterly relaxed and comfy. When you don’t have to worry about the constriction on your feet, everything you do—your stance, your swing, your accuracy—it all improves significantly.
“Pricey, But Worth It.”
New Balance seems like just another also-ran in the race for supremacy in the athletic shoes industry. But when it comes to extra wide golf shoes, it’s a solid contender. It’s not just hoping for the bronze medal—it really wants the gold this time. And for some people in search of golf shoes size 14 or bigger, the Minimus LX is solid gold.
Now some people may say that golf isn’t really a sport and that it’s just another game, just like Monopoly is a game and not a sport. But don’t tell that to the geniuses at New Balance. They built this pair of wide width golf shoes for athletes. It feels like a shoe for cross training, so you feel like you’re ready for anything.
Now just don’t forget to break them in first, so you get maximum comfort out on the course. And don’t forget to get a nice golf shoe bag to go with it when you’re done. After all, this pair of wide golf shoes has taken good care of you, so you ought to reciprocate and take good care of them as well.
“Reasonably Priced And Very Comfortable.”
If you’re a bit more price conscious the Nike Heritage III is a much more affordable alternative to the excellent TW 13, and in its own way the Heritage III is excellent as well. Of course, the price is a nice surprise, and these days you can even cut a substantial fraction off the list price. Yet just because it’s cheap doesn’t mean the quality is cheap. After all, it’s still Nike.
Again, the comfort level is superb. We don’t mean it’s superb at this price range; we mean it’s superb, period. Quite a few owners have played golf with this pair of wide width golf shoes right out of the box, and you can’t believe how many say that they forgot they were wearing brand new wide golf shoes. It even offers water-resistant protection, just in case you play in bad weather or you don’t have a convenient golf ball retriever.
Like other Nike shoes, the traction is more than adequate, the lateral support is there too, and you’re able to move naturally with no problem. If your old shoes were giving you problems when it comes to comfort, these wide width golf shoes will solve those problems. And it may even improve your game quite a bit. In the end, that’s still a priority along with your comfort. They go hand in hand.
But of course, there’s a catch. You don’t expect everything to be perfect at this price range, right? And here, the catch is that if you need extra wide golf shoes you’ll probably have to order something that’s half a size larger than you normally do.
“Comfortable and Affordable, But the Sizes Run Slightly Small”
The thing about the Nike Air WP II is that it’s quite light, and it feels like it’s perfect for summer golf. But it’s actually a year-round pair of wide width golf shoes, as it’s actually waterproof. The price is also more than reasonable, ranging from really affordable to somewhat expensive (if you’re looking for golf shoes size 16 or larger).
But this pair, while it qualifies as a pair of wide width golf shoes, isn’t quite deserving of being called extra wide golf shoes. It may be a little bit too tight for some who really need absolutely extra wide golf shoes.
So that means you really need to know your measurements. But if you buy it and find it just a tad too tight when brand new, time and some tennis balls stuffed inside will provide the proper fit eventually.
Like the others on this list, the cleats here aren’t replaceable. But these wide golf shoes are meant for weekend warriors, not for pros dreaming of a green jacket. It’s also available in white, so do your best to make sure the golf ball goes where you want it to go so your shoes doen’t get super-dirty in pursuit.
“Wide, But Not Extra Wide.”
This FootJoy is for casual golfing, and that means it doesn’t have spikes. That’s okay when you live in Arizona, and even more so if you don’t like playing in wet conditions no matter where you live. But even if you do, this may still work because it’s water-proof, even if the stability may not be up to par.
Another plus is that this pair of shoes is quite versatile, as you can use it for all types of casual occasions. It’s perfect for an idyllic visit to the park or the beach. It also looks like a nice pair of tennis sneakers, so you don’t have to look like an old fuddy-duddy.
But this is another pair of wide golf shoes which you can’t really consider as extra wide golf shoes.
“Great for Golf and Even as Casual Wear.”
