    Golf shoes leaking from the top

    Someone described this problem in passing in another thread.

    My Footjoys are fine tramping along wet fairways, through wet rough and minor puddles.

    But when it is raining, the rain runs off my trusty Galvin Green trousers, down the front of the leg and into my shoes where they lace up!
    Now I finally know what those stupid kilties were for on traditional golf shoes!

    I have been looking at hiking gaiters but they don't all cover the lace up part where the water gets in.

    I assume a lot of other golfers have this problem, so what to you do?

    Yours, soggily, Mimms

    I just endure wet feet

    I always take a spare pair of socks for afterwards. Sometimes you just cant avoid some water ingress

    Just cover your laces with a strip of gaffer tape before the round water will simply just run off

    Wear some SealSkinz socks, nice and waterproof, so doesn't even matter if your shoes are letting in water or soaked through.

    I remember those tongues on the top of shoes. Never looked great even in the 70's. I tend to just pack some spare socks in my shoe bag but 9 times out of 10 its never too bad

    Never remove the gaffer tape during a medal round, we don't want another Lyle/Faldo moment!

    Sealskinz socks are expensive but work really well for golf and hill walking.
    I hate having wet feet anywhere except in the shower.
