Skechers 2019 Go Golf Shoe Range Revealed - New spikeless and cleated models said to build on impressive comfort and performance combination
Skechers 2019 Go Golf Shoe Range Revealed
Popular for its comfort and performance without the punchy prices, Skechers is launching a host of new footwear models for 2019 – many of which you’ll see out on tour on the feet of Russell Knox, Matt Kuchar and Brooke Henderson, who had their say on the new designs.
Skechers is also expanding its range of shoe widths and sizes in 2019 to help more golfers find the perfect fit. Skechers new Relaxed Fit (RF) models are said to feature a roomier forefoot section to suit those with wider feet.
Returning from last year are the Go Golf Elite Approach, Elite Approach LT, Elite V.3 and the Fairway Lead. The Go Golf Elite V.3 and the Fairway Lead are now available in Plus Fit sizes 14-16 (EU 49-53) to suit those with larger feet.
Headlining the five new models is the Go Golf Pro 4 (above, £139), worn by Kuchar to win twice on the PGA Tour this year.
This shoe boasts a full-grain leather upper, a low profile sole, lightweight ‘Ultra Flight’ cushioning and Resamax insoles. Grip is provided by a dynamic diamond traction plate and replaceable Softspikes cleats.
A heel-lock feature prevents the rear portion of the foot from moving during the phases of the swing, while Skechers’ H2GO Shield technology provides waterproof protection. It is available in white, grey and black colour options as well as an Honors version (above), which features a knitted textile upper.
Also new for 2019 is the spikeless Go Golf Mojo Elite (below, £119), which features a Gripflex sole that combines multi-directional cleats and lugs to provide superior traction and stability, all in a green-friendly, flexible design that can be worn on and off the golf course.
There's a textile and full-grain leather upper plus a central saddle for added lateral stability and mid-foot support as well as the Ultra Flight cushioning, Resamax insoles and H2GO waterproof protection.
It also comes in a Go Golf Mojo Punch Shot version (below), which has a full-grain leather upper for a more traditional look.
Finally, there’s the Go Golf Drive 4 (below, £84), which is a more relaxed, trainer-style shoe aimed at players looking for a more casual look on and off the golf course, but who still demand high levels of comfort and performance.
This sneaker style golf shoe features the same Ultra Flight cushioning and a Goga Max insole for high-rebound cushioning, and a durable rubber traction plate for grip.
It also comes in an LX version that boasts a premium full-grain leather upper and H2GO waterproof protection.
