Skechers’ 2019 Go Golf shoe collection for men and women introduces 13 new designs, including the spiked PRO 4 shoes worn by Matt Kuchar during his recent victory at the PGA Tour’s Sony Open in Hawaii.
The 2019 Skechers Go Golf line continues to advance innovation and design through inspiration gained from the brand’s market-leading running and lifestyle divisions, as well as through crucial insight and feedback from a roster of Skechers Performance tour pros including Kuchar, Russell Knox, Wesley Bryan, Colin Montgomerie, Billy Andrade and Brooke Henderson.
