Best shoes for golf, football, board sports and climbing
Looking for performance-enhancing shoes for golf, tennis, skating or climbing? Then check out this lot.
Football: Nike T90 Laser III Elite
It's garish, yes, but with good reason - the hi-vis orange trim on this boot creates a flickering effect your team-mates will pick up in their peripheral vision. In theory this means they'll know where to pass to without having to look around too much. The boot's surface is made of shape-correcting memory foam so it won't develop any bobbly bits that cause you to skew the ball off the pitch like most of the England forwards at the World Cup.

Skateboarding: Busenitz Pro
The Buesnitz feels sturdier than many skate shoes on the market thanks to extra layers of suede on the parts of the shoe that get the most abuse from your board. It's also got a protective heel cup to help your feet cope with jarring impacts and a customisable tongue you can let fan out or cut down according to your style preference. If you're wondering why the shoe looks familiar, it's because it's based on the classic Adidas football boot the Copa Mundial.
PRICE : £55

Climbing: La Sportiva Katana
The Katana is made of an extremely durable and highly flexible combination of natural and synthetic materials. A prehensile area under the toe delivers optimal support for edging and gives you an excellent feel for the rock beneath your foot. It has a versatile Velcro closure system that can be rearranged to fit different types of climbing so whether you're on a climbing wall for one hour or on El Capitan for 12, your shoe will stay supportive and secure.
PRICE : £89.99

Golf: FootJoy SYNR-G
This shoe provides incredible stability and, thanks to the extra spikes on the sole, excellent grip so there's no danger of slipping over mid-swing. What's more, the memory foam around the tongue moulds to your foot, providing an incredibly comfortable fit. After 18 holes there's very little chance of foot ache or grass stains on the seat of your trousers.
PRICE : £150
