They’ve been taking the US market by storm, and now Skechers have expanded their footprint in the UK market by launching an updated Go Golf shoe collection for 2017.
The US No.2 footwear brand, which is endorsed by Matt Kuchar, Russell Knox and Colin Montgomerie, has taken inspiration from their market-leading running and lifestyle divisions by introducing six technology-enhanced golf shoes.
Like its 2016 predecessor, the collection showcases some of the most eye-catching designs and colourful schemes on the market.
Comfort remains the brand’s biggest selling point and they’ve sought to push the boundaries even further in 2017 by incorporating award-winning performance technologies into every design.
Resalyte and resamax cushioning has been integrated alongside a next-generation, highly responsive cushioning foam inside the sole to provide additional support.
Durability has also been taken care of with the addition of a waterproof H2Go shield and DRI-LEX moisture management in selected models.
The entire collection is scheduled to hit UK and Ireland stores in mid-February. To help you decide which style suits you best, here’s a rundown of each shoe model …
