Only the most determined golfer plays in winter, those dedicated to the sport, unafraid of the cold, the wet, damp, high winds and of course the large number of fallen leaves that conspire to hide the golf ball at every opportunity.
And yet it’s those golfers who understand the value of being ‘geared’ up, who understand the benefit of the technologies that Skechers develop for their comfort and well-being and it’s probably for those reasons that they are prepared to play in the harsh winter climate…that and the dogged determination not to be influenced by the weather and an old fashioned love of the game.
Shoes, as we know can make or break a round at any time of year but it’s in the mud and damp that they can really come into their own. Skechers GoGolf are renowned for the comfort that they bring golfers and increasing numbers are realising just what that means to their game – one less thing to think about in a game already plagued by the mind.
