Skechers shoes have shown that they are not only a huge hit with Foremost’s retail partner and golfing consumers, but also with the golf media, as the Skechers GoGolf Elite 4 was awarded top honours in the recent Today’s Golfer and Golf Monthly Editor’s Choice Awards.

The next generation of one of the best-selling shoes in the UK golf market, the new Elite 4 has a sporty, low profile with luxury leather uppers. Its drop design keeps the golfer’s feet low to the ground and combines with Skechers’ GRIPFLEX spikeless TPU outsoles to provide golfers with superior balance and traction throughout the swing. 

Golf Monthly equipment editor Joel Tadman described the Elite 4 as “providing the optimum blend of stability, walking comfort and excellent grip”, adding “the midsole gives you a genuine spring in your step all the way to the 18th green. They’re also lightweight, waterproof and easy to keep clean, with dirt wiping off easily.”

A spokesman for Skechers in the UK said: “Out-of-the-box comfort, great looks and innovative technology and fabrics are seeing Skechers shoes growing in popularity among golfers as well as the golf media. Add to that fast sell through, great margin, and it’s easy to why Skechers is proving such as popular brand for retailers wanting to offer their members stylish, functional footwear at the right price.”
