Skechers has been named the official footwear supplier of both the European and United States Solheim Cup Teams for the 2021 tournament.
The US-based footwear company, known for developing golf shoes worn by a wide range of leading tour professionals for men and women, including LPGA Tour star Brooke Henderson, has designed exclusive Skechers GO GOLF Elite 3 styles in unique colorus for the United States and European teams, to be provided to players, caddies and support staff during the September event at Inverness Club in Toledo, Ohio.
Michael Greenberg, president of Skechers, said: “As the Solheim Cup moves back to the States, it’s a perfect time to expand our partnership with this storied event in women’s golf. After outfitting some of the top European players through the tournaments in 2017 and 2019, we look forward to seeing the American women wearing Skechers GO GOLF as well this year. This event is a perfect opportunity to reach fans on both sides of the Atlantic and illustrate why golfers everywhere have come to love the innovative performance and comfort of Skechers GO GOLF footwear.”
Solheim Cup tournament director Becky Newell commented: “We are excited to expand the previous partnership with Skechers as they become the Official Footwear Partner for the entire 2021 Solheim Cup. We know that the styling, performance and comfort offered by Skechers is a perfect match for our players and the support staff on both sides of the competition.”
European Solheim Cup Captain Catriona Matthew said: “When it comes to the game, Skechers GO GOLF delivers with footwear that offers the comfort players need for three days of competition at the Solheim Cup. I’m thrilled that our team will be partnering with the brand for the third time.”
United States Solheim Cup Captain Pat Hurst said: “I know the European women found success with Skechers on their side two years ago, so now in my first year as captain with Skechers on our side as well, I hope we can bring the trophy home.”
In addition to pairs of shoes for the golfers, support staff and officials will be provided with Skechers GO RUN Supersonic style footwear in team colors, with caddies outfitted in a special waterproof version.
This is the first time Skechers will supply footwear to both sides after previously sponsoring Skechers, Official Team Footwear Supplier of the 2021 Solheim Cup, reveals exclusive Skechers GO GOLF Elite 3 and Skechers GO RUN Supersonic styles in United States and European team colours to the European team in 2017 and 2019.
Known for its lightweight, high-quality, stable and comfortable designs, Skechers GO GOLF has achieved prominence within the golf category alongside the brand’s award-winning running, walking and training collections.
In addition to Canadian Brooke Henderson, the roster of elite golfers wearing Skechers GO GOLF on tour also includes Colin Montgomerie and Billy Andrade.
