New Designs Combine Innovative Performance Technology with Skechers’ Signature Comfort
The 2021 Skechers GO GOLF® footwear collection delivers game-changing performance technology, exciting new designs, and ultimate comfort for men, women and juniors. The line features innovations and designs inspired by the brand’s award-winning running and lifestyle divisions, and was developed with crucial insight and feedback from a roster of Skechers Performance tour pros including Matt Kuchar, Brooke Henderson, Colin Montgomerie and Billy Andrade.
At the core of the 2021 range are Skechers’ proven technologies and materials that deliver traction and comfort through 18-holes and beyond to help every golfer unleash their true potential. Styles are designed with Skechers ULTRA GO® and ULTRA FLIGHT® midsole technologies, a lightweight, responsive cushioning that was first developed for the brand’s award-winning GO RUNTM collection.
A key innovation for 2021 is the introduction of Skechers Arch Fit® technology to its golf line – an insole system developed with over 20 years of data and 120,000 unweighted foot scans to provide podiatrist- certified arch support.
First launched in Skechers sport and performance walking styles, the popular Arch Fit insole is designed to mold to your foot, reduce shock and increase weight dispersion. The addition of the technology in four Skechers GO GOLF styles, two for men and two for women, will provide enhanced arch support for long- lasting comfort on the course.
Outlined below, new styles range from athletic and sleek to modern, plus traditional, tried and true favorites that are carrying over, the 2021 line ensures every golfer can look and feel their best on and off the course.
