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 comfier 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.
