Skechers Golf Shoes Poor Quality?

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

I've been meaning to post this for over a month now.

I got my first pair of Skechers golf shoes at the beginning of this year. I've never particularly liked Skechers golf shoes looks but thought I'd give em a shot because they were supposed to be extremely comfortable (which they are).

 

I never thought I'd have to worry about the quality of the shoe though! Within a month the plastic was cracking on them. Now, nearly 8 months later they are about to fall apart. Is this normal???

I play a decent amount of golf but not that much. I probably average around 2 round a week riding (not walking). And I haven't even worn these shoes every time I've played. My last couple pair of Nikes lasted years and are still wearable. They definitely didn't start falling apart on me. 

I asked the pro I bought them from and he said that personally he hasn't problems with them, but said that he has heard other members expressing issues with them. This worries me. These are $150 shoes and I guess I'm a cheap ass but that seems like a decent amount for a shoe that barely makes it 6 months. 

Have any of yall seen quality control issues with your pairs of Skechers? Or did I just get a lemon of a shoe? lol

Mine are super comfortable however they squeak when I walk.   All my golfing buddies started calling me squeaky. I thought the squeaking would go away with time however they are still at it.

That's strange. I think mine did that a little when they were new but it has since gone a way.

I'm now waiting for my 3rd. pair to be delivered, all within 18 months.  Last 2 pairs leaked and here in " occasionally" wet and damp Scotland a good pair of waterproof shoes are essential. Once the warranty runs out I'll not be buying Skechers again.

That's a real drag. I looked at your shoe and I almost bought the same ones. Hope it works out.

Warranty you say? I may have to check into this.

 

Edit: it seems they do have a waterproof warranty. I have no idea where mine is(comes in the box) so I'm going to email them and see what happens. This is the email btw.  gogolfwarranty@skechers.com

I have about a dozen walking rounds in the original Go Golf Focus (collegiate version). They are lightweight, comfortable, super stable and have very little heel drop. I have a feeling the fabric inside the heel cup may start tearing soon but otherwise they are holding up well.

 

Re: waterproof warranty. I checked into it after my purchase and learned Skechers offers zero product warranties in the USA (Europe holds the manufacturer to a higher standard). I heard some rumors about Skechers introducing a 2 year waterproof warranty starting this year or next but their website still says only “unworn” products can be returned within 45 days. I was pretty disappointed to find out they didn't offer any quality assurance programs on a $150 shoe.

Wow... If that's the case with these, then it'll be the first and last pair of skechers I ever buy. I've emailed them and am waiting to hear back. 

 

I'm hoping they cover it though bc I noticed the bottom question on my shoes' page was about the shoes leaking due to a tear and Skechers said they'd cover it. That's actually where I got the email address from. That question came from a guy in Cincy Ohio so maybe there's hope. I'll be sure to let you know what I find.

I have a pair of sneakers that I use for working out that I love. I was thinking of buying a pair of golf shoes at the end of the season - I try to have three pairs at all times and rotate them so I will be anxious to see how this turns out.

I was in the market for some new shoes and Sketchers was right up there, but decided to go with the FJ Pro SL. In my opinion, definitely not normal for only playing 2 days a week and not even walking.

I don't have that shoe, but I bought the GoGolf Elite V3 LX about a month ago.  They seem very nice; no squeaking, very stable and waterproof!!   I've worn them about half the time I play, just to get used to them.  They are much different feeling than the True Linkswear shoes I have worn for years.

that's a real bummer.... there aren't too many wide shoes on the market and if these are no bueno then my pool of choices just got even smaller.

 

hope it works out in the end but man am I disappointed...
