skechers named official footwear partner of 2017 solheim cup

 

Skechers has been announced as the official footwear partner of the 2017 Solheim Cup match between Europe and the United States in Iowa from August 18 to 20.

Some of the world’s leading players will be taking to the fairways in never-before-seen, limited edition, Team Europe and Team USA Skechers GO GOLF shoes.

"We are honoured to be involved in the Solheim Cup," said Skechers managing director for UK & Ireland, Pete Youell.

"The partnership with the Ladies European Tour further solidifies Skechers GO GOLF’s growth in the golf market. We are proud to have our footwear worn by many of the elite players in women’s golf and we’re sure our innovative designs and unparalleled comfort will give the players the perfect base to play their best golf."

Team Europe, captained by legendary Swede Annika Sorenstam, will look to regain the famous ladies trophy out of the hands of Juli Inkster's Team USA, who narrowly won by a point in the 2015 match. 

"We are delighted to join with Skechers Performance as our Official Footwear Partner for the 2017 European Solheim Cup team," said European Solheim Cup director Dae Ramirez.

"The styling, performance and comfort the brand offers made the selection process an easy one."
