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.

Over­all verdict

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.
