Skechers launch new range
Introducing the GO GOLF Elite
Words: John Dean Photography: Skechers
Skechers Performance Division has announced the launch of a new premium spikeless golf shoe category, which they are calling GO GOLF Elite™.
Skechers are the #2 footwear brand in the US, and have recently started breaking into the UK & Ireland golf market.
Worn by PGA Tour star Matt Kuchar, the Skechers design team believes that they have created the brand’s most comfortable performance model to date.
Skechers GO GOLF Elite unites its premium GO GOLF Pro leather upper with an innovative spikeless design and comfort outsole to deliver outstanding comfort and performance across the board.
When it comes to waterproof protection, this shoe comes with a 2-year warranty, courtesy of the brand’s cutting-edge H2GO Shield seam-sealed technology.
The GO GOLF Elite also features a durable grip TPU bottom plate and Skechers’ unique GOimpulse™ Sensors for superior traction control as well as a high-performance Resamax® cushioned insole.
Alongside a low drop design to keep your foot low to the ground in a neutral position and agion® antimicrobial protection, Skechers has created a golf shoe that ensures you are sturdy and comfortable, to enable you to play your best.
The GO GOLF 2016 line-up for 2016 has been developed with the input of Global Ambassador’s Colin Montgomerie, Matt Kuchar and Belen Mozo.
Their feedback has provided Skechers with invaluable insights on fit, aesthetics and function of the diverse range and has helped create a number of new innovations and technologies to the GO GOLF™ range for 2016.
Three-time Senior Major winner, winning Ryder Cup captain and eight-time European Order of Merit winner, Montgomerie commented, “I knew when I joined the Skechers team last year that they would provide me with everything I need from a golf shoe in terms of performance, comfort and style. Having seen the 2016 range and especially the new GO GOLF Elite’s I have to say that I’m really impressed and can't wait to put them in play straight away.”
The new GO GOLF Elite will be available from the beginning of February 2016 in the following colourways (Grey, White, Black, Black/White and Brown/White) and will retail at £99.
