The Skechers Go Golf Blade shoes have been unveiled, featuring multiple technologies that help deliver comfort and grip on an athletic and modern looking golf shoe
Skechers has extended its 2016 Go Golf shoe range with the addition of the Blade, an all-new golf shoe category for male golfers with an athletic profile and modern styling. It joins the Skechers Go Golf Elite golf shoe in the range and brings a completely new look to the golf market.
The Go Golf Blade is based on the look of a modern-day running trainer but has adapted the technologies to meet a golfer’s requirements. The first of these is a low drop midsole that improves ground feel and a fully waterproof upper with hybrid traction system.
Additionally, a dual density Resalyte shock absorbing midsole and a high-performance Resamax cushioned insole system deliver comfort. An agion anti-microbial insole helps to keep feet fresh when walking long distances on the golf course, and a stabilised midfoot area has also been added for increased control during in the golf swing.
All of these Skechers Performance technologies are combined with contemporary 3D printed overlay detailing, padded collar and tongue, and soft fabric shoe lining. The outsole is also fitted with replaceable Softspikes cleats to maximise traction throughout your round.
The new men’s GO GOLF Blade is available in wide variety of fashionable new colour schemes: Synthetic Black Upper w/ Red Trim, Black Synthetic w/ Lime Trim, Charcoal Synthetic w/ Blue Trim, Navy Synthetic w/ Red Trim, and a classic White Synthetic w/ Black Trimto and can be purchased now with a RRP of £109.
