Skechers Go Golf Reader Test
They may be doing well in the American market in particular, but it's easy to forget that Skechers are still relative newcomers to the golf market. The casual footwear brand only debuted its Go Golf shoe collection in 2014, but that didn’t stop Colin Montgomerie from buying his own pair soon after. Now, he’s a brand ambassador alongside Matt Kuchar, Russell Knox, and Brooke Henderson.
The Go Golf range has more than doubled in size for 2017, with seven new styles and more head- turning colours than a Coldplay concert. As ever, Skechers promises ‘out of the box comfort’ with every pair, but is this really the case? To find out, we invited four readers to try out two different designs over 18 holes
at The Shire.
James Carr-Smith, Handicap 9
Skechers Go Golf Elite 2 (Spikeless)
I really liked them as soon as I put them on; I thought they looked great and were very comfortable. Normally you’d expect a pair of shoes to take a few rounds to break in, but it felt as if I’d already broken them in a long time ago.
Skechers Go Golf Pro 2 LX (Soft Spikes)
Compared to the spikeless pair, I felt like they had less flexibility in the sole, but I would still say they are com er than any other pair of shoes I’ve worn. They also look really smart and trendy, but I’m not sure I’d go for this style because of the suede material. Even after nine holes, they scuffed up a bit, so I’m not sure how they would hold up in the winter.
I’m 29 and I think they definitely appeal to someone my age, or even younger than that. They haven’t gone overboard by sacrificing style for comfort, either, and it felt like I was walking on memory foam pads. I think Skechers have some work to do with their brand perception, but they’ve certainly changed my opinion. I want to drive home in them now.

Skechers Go Golf (Spikeless)
As soon as I put them on, I felt like I was wearing my comfiest pair of trainers,. Despite playing on hard ground, they were really grippy for a spikeless shoe and I felt like I had a lot of stability. They are the sort of shoes you’d try on in a shop and ask if you could walk out in them.
Skechers Go Golf Tour (Spikeless)
I couldn’t fault these shoes for comfort, but the only drawback was the design and white colour scheme which made them look like a more conventional golf shoe; whereas I prefer a slightly neater-looking shoe. On the plus side, they didn’t hurt my feet at all, which is something I was worried about. If they had them in a different colour, I wouldn’t hesitate to buy a pair.
I was incredibly surprised about just how comfortable Skechers Go Golf both pairs of golf shoes were. I’ve always had issues getting blisters from new shoes, but after 18 holes I didn’t want to take them off.
Paul Griffiths, Handicap 6
Skechers Go Golf Elite 2 (Spikeless)
I’ve never worn golf shoes which are more comfortable, especially straight out of the box. I have quite wide feet, but I felt like they moulded around my feet. There were no sign of any blisters and I felt like I could wear them all day and my feet wouldn’t hurt. I can’t compliment them enough.
Skechers Go Golf Focus (Soft spikes)
Comfort wise, 10 out of 10 again. They’re lightweight and I felt like I was wearing a pair of slippers on the golf course. I haven’t got any negative comments. I think the Focus shoes prove that you can still have spikes with the comfort of a spikeless shoe.
I’ve tried Nike, FootJoy and Adidas, but I would recommend them ahead of other golf shoes on the market. You can tell most golf shoes a mile away, but I would describe the look of these as smart, understated elegance. I think they would appeal to anyone; from seniors who have problems with their knees and want some cushioning to kids who want a cool, trendy pair of shoes.
Keith Baldwin, Handicap 9
Skechers Go Golf Drive 2 LX(Spikeless)
I really liked the style; they looked like an ordinary pair of shoes. Even after nine holes, they still felt just as soft and I had no blisters which was the main thing. They were superb in every way, and I would wear them on the course, on the range or in the bar.
Skechers Go Golf Pro 2 (Soft spikes)
They delivered straight out of the box comfort as soon as I put them on. They were very stable on the course, and my feet didn’t ache at all. Although you can feel that they are a spiked shoe, they are still comfortable and easy to walk in. I also liked the plainness of them – I thought they looked very neat – so there were no drawbacks at all really.
I would definitely recommend them to other people. You could get them out on the first tee for the first time and have no problems. I probably preferred the Drive 2 shoes as they were an all-round, more comfortable shoe, but I expected the spiked shoes to be a lot firmer which they weren’t, so they still exceeded my expectations.
