Which are the best Skechers golf shoes?
Skechers have made quite an impact since launching into the golf market in 2014.
And they have been central players in a quiet revolution in the golf shoes sector with the move towards more casual-looking footwear. Comfort has also been a byword for all things Skechers.
Its Go Golf range is one of the most extensive out there and their competitively-priced options have earned rave reviews, featuring in our best golf shoes guide.
In March, Skechers signed up 2022 US Open champion Matt Fitzpatrick and he was wearing Skechers Go Golf Pro 5 Hyper at Brookline when he won his first Major, joining the likes of Colin Montgomerie, Matt Kuchar and Brooke Henderson as brand ambassadors.
