MANHATTAN BEACH, California — Skechers Performance™ received top honors for the Skechers GO GOLF Elite V.3™ style as it was named by Golf Digest as a “Best Men’s Golf Shoe of 2018”, as well as “Best Spikeless Shoe of 2018” by leading independent industry authority MyGolfSpy. Additionally, the Skechers GO GOLF Pro V.3™ was named “Most Comfortable” on MyGolfSpy’s “Best Spiked Shoe of 2018” list.
“We are incredibly honored to be recognized as top performers in the golf industry,” commented Michael Greenberg, president of Skechers. “Our Skechers GO GOLF® collection outperformed amongst competitors because we use our unique innovations to deliver on both stability and comfort. And we’ve now made the Best Spikeless list with MyGolfSpy for two consecutive years further reflecting the credibility of the GO GOLF line both on and off the course.”

The Skechers GO GOLF Pro V.3 adds replaceable Softspikes® for maximum grip.
MyGolfSpy compiles top products from each golf shoe category, which are put through rigorous side-by-side testing and scored across a range of weighted categories. Their findings are based on factors including stability provided by the shoe throughout the round as well as comfort of the shoe that a golfer gets straight from the box and during the swing.
