Don't let style make feet hurt during Masters Week

  • Follow Applause

You've got your sherbet-colored separates and sundresses picked out, but before you put on your shoes to walk the course at Augusta National Golf Club, assess how cute you'll feel at the end of the day hobbling over gravel to your parking spot.

You don't have to sacrifice comfort for style. I found some shoes that fulfill the fashion and functional demands of Masters Week.

First, throw the heels out of the equation; otherwise, you'll make divots everywhere you go. Flats are the first requirement for comfortable course wear.

Oxfords are a popular spring style for women, and variations have popped up everywhere, from Free People to Steve Madden to Urban Outfitters.

You can find some comfy golf shoes, or check out cute options by Steve Madden.

For a classic preppy look, sport two-tone "Melin" oxfords. For a softer look, try the crochet-side "Manque" shoes. Both run about $100.

Oxfords can be worn with anything, even dresses. Try some bold or flirty socks with them.

Make sure at least to wear low socks to avoid having the back of your heel rub against the shoe (particularly if it rains), and consider inserts.

If you're looking for cheaper shoes already broken in, check out vintage offerings on etsy.com.

One of the best hybrid shoes I saw is the Nike Gladiator women's shoe. It is part metallic gladiator sandal, part sporty shoe. A pair runs about $80.

I saw a lot of punk-infused golf wear last year on the course. Update it with bright-colored high-top sneakers, such as Nike Air Morgan shoes in pink, teal and purple.

Blend "jerk" fashion and golf style with bright colors and plaids. This is an '80s-influenced style, so keep that style consistent through your ensemble.
