Skechers GO GOLF Out of the Box Comfort 54-hole Challenge

Golf Monthly is teaming up with Skechers to offer two golfers the opportunity to experience for themselves the rapidly growing golf shoe brand’s ‘Out of the Box Comfort’ this July.

Skechers is now the #2 footwear brand in the US having enjoyed huge global success in recent years.

Among the high-profile brand ambassadors now wearing shoes from its GO GOLF performance collection are Russell Knox, who wears the GO GOLF Focus model, and Matt Kuchar, Colin Montgomerie and 2017 PGA Tour winner, Wesley Bryan, who all wear a selection of shoes from the GO GOLF Pro 2 and Elite 2 ranges.

These ambassadors have all had a hand in shaping the fit and aesthetics of the Skechers GO GOLF 2017 collection.
