Still undecided on what shoes to buy in 2020? We've put the new Skechers golf shoes through their paces so you know what to expect
Skechers are renowned for comfort and boast the likes of Matt Kuchar and Brooke Henderson among their ranks. We’ve got our hands on – and feet in – the 2020 range so let’s take a closer look.
First up, Hannah checks out the women’s range…
Skechers golf shoes 2020: Go Golf Pro 2
First impressions: Straight out of the box the high structure of this shoe really caught my eye. The more simplified clean styling is also something I prefer.
The technology: This spiked shoe is designed for unparalleled traction in all conditions. The shoes are completely waterproof thanks to synthetic leather uppers. As with the rest of the Skechers range they feature the brand’s lightweight Ultra Go and Goga Max cushioning.
NCG verdict: When I’m playing a competition I want a shoe that really supports my foot and feels stable throughout the swing. The stability this shoe provided is second to none, helped by extra details such as the raised heel and more support under the arch of my foot. The sole cushioning is extremely comfortable and the spiked sole gave me great traction. Overall I was really impressed with the performance of this shoe.
Colour options: Navy; White; Black
Skechers golf shoes 2020: Go Golf Walk Sport
First impressions: I think the the trainer style of this shoe will attract a lot of people especially in this attractive blue colour. Personally for me the pink laces were a bit too much for me so I swapped them for the blue pair that also come with this shoe.
Technology: Themed on Skecher’s popular athletic walking shoes this shoe is perfect for walking the golf course, rather than playing it, or for general outdoor wear. It features an ultra-lightweight design combined with the spikeless outsole and Goga Max cushioning for maximum comfort.
NCG verdict: This shoe was extremely comfortable but in a different way to the Pro 2. It is lightweight and makes you feel lower and more connected to the ground. The style of this shoe is great for those who want a casual shoe that can be worn both on and off the golf course. Personally this is a shoe I would use at the range, taking on holiday or for playing nine holes in the summer with my mates but would prefer the more supportive sole of the Pro 2 for competitions.
Colour options: Grey; Navy; Black
