‘I felt like I was wear­ing a pair of slip­pers on the golf course’

They may have over­taken adi­das as the sec­ond big­gest footwear brand in Amer­ica, 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 head­turn­ing 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.
