Skechers Go Golf Pro 2
The Go Golf Pro 2, famously worn by Matt Kuchar on Tour, is Skechers top-level tour golf shoe.With a relatively simple look and offerings in white and charcoal, the Go Golf Pro 2 provides a no-frills look that focuses on the comfort and performance over the flash.
It all starts with the 5GEN lightweight responsive foam cushioning on the sole. The trademarked technology is a soft platform for the foot, creating outstanding comfort for walking. The low profile design features less of a drop between the heel and forefoot than most shoes on the market, making walking easier. For those who need additional arch support, this relatively deep shoe allows plenty of room for orthotic insoles and comfort for those with tall feet. Finally, the U shape throat and heavily padded tongue allow for a very secure fit.
