Do you charge sales taxes?

In compliance with various state sales tax laws, we collect sales tax for those states that require it based on either physical or economic nexus laws. Based on the ship-to address you specify in your order, we currently collect and remit sales taxes in North Carolina, Massachusetts and Utah (states in which we have physical nexus) and Alabama, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Nevada, New Jersey, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Vermont, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming (states in which we have economic nexus). If we are shipping your order to any of these states, the appropriate sales taxes will be added to your order total in accordance with state and local sales tax laws and such taxes displayed in the shopping cart and on your final order confirmation.

For orders shipped to states other than those listed above, we are not currently required to and do not collect and remit sales tax. However, it is likely that other states not listed above will enact or enforce internet sales tax laws in the future with which we will be required to comply. Additionally, many states require resident purchasers to file sales/use tax returns at the end of the year reporting all of the taxable purchases that were not taxed and to pay tax on those purchases. For more information, visit your state’s tax information website.

Sales taxes are not charged on sales of gift certificates; although, for any purchase made where gift certificates are used as tender, sales taxes will be charged if the products are taxable in accordance with the information described above.

How do I know my shoe size?

If you do not know your shoe size, we would encourage you to measure your size with a ruler or common Brannock device. As with all footwear, manufacturers use different lasts, so sizes may vary from manufacturer to manufacturer.

What do the letter sizes stand for?

Certain models, use letters to denote different widths. The table below serves as a general rule for shoe widths:
A-Extra Extra Narrow
B-Extra Narrow
EE-Double Wide
EEE-Extra Wide
XW-Extra Wide

What is a closeout?

A closeout is a discontinued style that is no longer produced. Closeout shoes are new and qualify for all warranty coverage offered by the manufacturer.

How should I care for golf shoes?

Proper care and maintenance can extend the life of your golf footwear. Here are a few care tips:

  • Always clean your shoes after each round and store them at room temperature.
  • Never leave your shoes in a car trunk or in a garage. Constant exposure to both heat and cold can cause leathers to become brittle and crack.
  • Use cedar shoe trees which remove any excess moisture and help the shoes to retain their shape.
  • Not walking on cart paths or asphalt will prolong the life of your golf shoe spikes.
  • Replace your golf shoe spikes every 10-15 rounds.

What does a waterproof warranty mean?

Some golf shoes include either a one year or two year waterproof warranty. The warranty is determined by the shoe construction. Shoes with a one year waterproof warranty have a treated leather upper while a two year waterproof shoe includes a waterproof membrane. If your shoes do not remain waterproof throughout the entire warranty period, please contact us as soon as possible. We honor all valid manufacturer warranties.

What is the difference between genuine leather and synthetic leather?

A genuine leather shoe upper is waterproof and but requires more upkeep than a synthetic leather shoe. Genuine leater shoes often breathe better and are cooler on the feet. A synthetic leather upper requires less maintenance, and generally not waterproof and tend to be warmer than a leather shoe.
