Finally! New, STYLISH Golf Shoes!

I have been in and out of golf retirement for years now. For the past three years I have been nudged out of retirement for golf outings. For a few outings per year, I didn't feel the need to invest in lots of golf gear and a golfer-chic wardrobe. During the Bye Buy year I felt the pain in a severe way. I had no golf clothes (none that fit, anyway) and my shoes were hideous. Here was the set-up:

  • Wearing the correct outfit (if I had one) and a coordinating golf glove, grab the needed club, a cool colored tee and your ball and head to the tee box. 
  • Place your ball on the cool colored tee.
  • Stand the correct distance from the ball with arms extended.
  • Address the ball (hi there you cute little thing!)
  • Screeeeeching halt as I glimpse my ├╝ber-hideous golf shoes. Complete distraction as the super-sized, chalky white, butt-ugly boats stare back at me.
  • Completely lose concentration and wiff.
  • Return to golf cart, head hanging low wondering why in the world I ever chose those hideous shoes.
Golf was not fun during that year.

During the Bye Buy year I contemplated future purchases, things I REALLY wanted and needed. One thing high on my list was a new pair of golf shoes. I even did some preparatory window shopping only to find that golf shoes, in general, are ugly. What would I do? Find the least ugly pair?

Thankfully, Nike got the message (I'm pretty sure they were listening to me) and they introduced the Lunar Summer Lite Golf Shoes. Available in several cool colors, I was stopped in my tracks by

Sunburst/Bright Mango!!!
I sometimes choose my OPI nail polish by name alone and I would have selected these simply because of that name, but they are beautiful! My husband agreed that they would make an excellent birthday gift for me. I ordered them online and they arrived in a few days. Wow! I have some snappy shorts in nearly the same color. The shoes are super lightweight and comfortable. I gave them a go at the driving range last night. Here's the new setup:

  • Wearing the correct outfit (I do have one) and a coordinating golf glove, grab the needed club, a cool colored tee and your ball and head to the tee box. 
  • Place your ball on the cool colored tee.
  • Stand the correct distance from the ball with arms extended.
  • Address the ball (hey there!)
  • Screeeeeching halt as I glimpse my SUPER CUTE golf shoes. Smile. Tingle of satisfaction. Hey, I'll bet these would look fabulous with a lime green ...
  • Completely lose concentration and wiff.
I'll keep practicing!

  1. Dependent on opinion has separated a number of sports fanatics apart, because of the continuing debate of whether golf is really a sport or perhaps skill. Famous golfer Arnold Palmer declared Golf is stealthily easy and forever complicated it satisfies the soul and irritates the intellect And is simultaneously rewarding and maddening - also it is undoubtedly the finest game mankind has ever invented.
