Fusing fashion with function
Words: John Dean
Skechers Performance Division™ have announced the launch of an all-new men’s golf shoe category in the lead up to the summer season. The GO GOLF Drive II is Skechers’ latest release and is geared to golfers who demand on-course performance as well as a fashionable street-wear look.
The GO GOLF Drive II has been developed through taking the premium modern materials seen in the men’s GO GOLF Pro and Elite™ styles, and combining them with brand-new contemporary colour schemes and styling.
Building on the continued success of the GO GOLF Drive II’s predecessor the GO GOLF Drive, this contemporary performance model features an abundance of Skechers’ award-winning technologies, including the introduction of the innovative Goga Mat comfort.
The Drive II is available in three stylish colour schemes: black synthetic with white trim, navy synthetic with white trim and white synthetic with navy trim.
To design these modern golf shoes, Skechers Performance have taken the award-winning innovations from their world-famous lifestyle division and adapted it to golfing specifics given by Skechers ambassadors like PGA Tour stars Matt Kuchar and Russell Knox.
PGA Tour star, Matt Kuchar and recent WGC Champion Russell Knox both endorse the men’s GO GOLF Pro. European Tour legend, and Ryder Cup Captain Colin Montgomery also takes to the course in the men’s GO GOLF Elite.
Golfers who choose the GO GOLF Drive II will also benefit from the innovative Goga Mat® Technology insole that offers high-rebound cushioning resulting maximum comfort. The shoe itself is built upon a solid foundation due to ‘Low Drop’, a technology that ensures the foot stays low to the ground and in a central position.
The low drop midsole is in place for excellent ground feel, which results in improved player performance and stability during the golf swing.
The Drive II is constructed with a leather upper, side perforated accents, soft fabric shoe lining and a flexible turf cleated outsole. The Drive II still manages to be 100% waterproof, due to H2GO shield waterproof seam-sealed protection.
The GO GOLF Drive II will be available to purchase now and will have a SRP of £79.00.
