Skechers Go Golf Torque 2: Key Features
- Lightweight ULTRA GO cushioning
- High-rebound Goga Max cushioned insole
- Ortholite comfort foam insole
- Replaceable Softspikes with Stealth PIN system
Having tested two pairs of Skechers golf shoes in the last two weeks, one thing has become clear, the brand might well be the kings of comfort.
We were lucky enough to take the Skechers Go Golf Torque 2 out for a spin, and as we've come to expect from the brand, they were incredibly comfortable.
Featuring a whole host of comfort-focused features, including UlTRA Go cushioning and an Orhtolite comfort foam insole, we felt like we were walking with clouds on our feet.
Simple in styling, these shoes are ideal for golfers who like to walk the course and they also come in at a price point that won't break the bank
Offering waterproof protection, we put the shoes through their paces over a number of rounds in different conditions to see how they performed.
Let's get into it
Skechers Go Golf Torque 2: Looks
In the looks department, these shoes offer a solid but understated design.
Very trainer-like in appearance, if it weren't for the spikes on the sole, you could be fooled into believing these were tennis or gym shoes.
The shoes feature a simple slatted design on the side with a small arrow of indented dots at the base of the laces, while a subtle silver Skechers S logo hugs the heel to round out a basic yet pleasing aesthetic.
While perhaps not the most eye-catching shoes on the market, they offer a really solid look that we think will appeal to a lot of golfers.
There's little more to say on the design front other than as soon as you get them out of the box, you do get a real impression that they will be enjoyable to wear. The thick cushioned collar was an early indicator of the comfort level we were about to experience.
Skechers Go Golf Torque 2: Comfort and Performance
I know we keep banging on about clouds, but honestly, if you've ever let your mind wander to what it would feel like to walk on clouds, then you could save some time and just go out and buy a pair of these golf shoes instead.
As previously mentioned, they do look a bit like trainers, and they feel a lot like them too. As seems to be a trend in modern golf shoes, a more athletic design and feel is becoming more and more popular, with the lines between trainer and golf shoe becoming somewhat blurred.
While comfort is obviously key, performance can't be sacrificed, and Skechers has done a good job of creating a shoe that remains strong and stable throughout the golf swing.
With ample support in the heel region and a good set of soft spikes underfoot, you feel nicely locked in, which is key to ensuring you can commit to your swing without the fear of losing balance or slipping over.
During one of the rounds we were testing these shoes, we did encounter some rain, and the shoes held up nicely against the downpour with our feet staying warm and dry. Reassuringly the shoes also come with a one-year waterproof warranty, so you're covered if any leaks do arise.
All in all, we could find little fault with these shoes with regard to comfort and performance. We didn't experience any discomfort during any of our rounds, which is particularly impressive considering most shoes take at least a round or two to wear in.
Should you buy the Skechers Go Golf Torque 2 shoes?
If you're looking for a comfy and affordable upgrade in the golf shoe department, then you should definitely consider a pair of these shoes next time you're in the pro shop.
The straightforward design may not turn heads on the course, but slip these on, and you'll fully understand why we rate them so highly.
If comfort is high on your priority list, then you certainly won't be disappointed, and at only £72.99, you're also getting yourself an absolute bargain.
