Skechers GO GOLF Torque Twist Golf Shoe Review

50 Words or Less

The Skechers GO GOLF Torque Twist golf shoe is incredibly comfortable right out of the box.  Strong value.

Introduction

Prior to this review, I’d never worn a pair of Skechers shoes.  What I did know is that every year their booth at the PGA Show got bigger and that Meeker raved about them, so I decided it was time to see for myself what they were about.  The GO GOLF Torque Twist made it clear why Skechers continues to expand its reach: the shoes are just plain comfortable.

Looks

The Skechers GO GOLF Torque Twist has the look of a dialed down, traditional athletic shoe.  From the player’s perspective, the shoe is all white.  There is some texture along the sides, but it’s nearly monochromatic.  Around the heel, the white mixes with silver, more textures come into view, and the Skechers “S” logo appears.

Overall, this shoe has an aesthetic that aims for the middle of the bell curve – it may not light anyone’s fire, but no one will hate it either.  There are three colorways available – white, black, and grey with neon green accents.

Comfort

I didn’t even get the second shoe on before I texted Meeker an, “Ok, I get it now.”  Right out of the box, the Skechers GO GOLF Torque Twist is as comfortable as any shoe I’ve worn.  There is absolutely zero break in period.  I tried them on to make sure they fit, then immediately walked 18 holes.

The comfort comes from two things.  First, the shoe is roomy.  The toe box is wide, and no part of the shoe constrained my foot.  Second, everything about the shoe is soft.  The upper moves easily, the GOGO MAX insole is cushy, and the Twist closure gently snugs around your foot.

Performance

My Skechers GO GOLF Torque Twist got a torture test in their first round – wet, sloppy, half-frozen conditions that challenged their waterproofing and their traction.  These shoes were up to the task.  For a shoe that costs just over $100, the waterproofing is excellent.  My feet were bone dry after the round, and I didn’t even consider how wet the course had been until I sat down to write this review.

The traction that these shoes provided was also quite good.  Each sole has six replaceable Softspikes and some molded traction elements.  They are not the most aggressive soles, but they provided plenty of grip even on a muddy day.

Overall, I was very impressed with the GO GOLF Torque Twist and barely thought about them as I played.  If I were going to nitpick, I would note that the heel is a little loose and the shoe doesn’t provide much structure.  The Twist closure works well, but if you like a shoe that really locks your foot into place, these aren’t for you.

Conclusion

If comfort and value are your top priorities, the Skechers GO GOLF Torque Twist golf shoes are hard to beat.  For $110, you get shoes with a 1-year waterproof warranty that make you feel like you’re walking on air.

  1. It’s very well documented. It was helpful. Thank you.

  2. Ordered a pair last week. This will be my 3rd pair of Skechers golf shoes. The best for comfort and fit. I average 70+ rounds a year. All of my everyday shoes are Skechers as well. If you buy online, join their Elite
    club, free shipping and rewards to apply to your purchases. Also some great promotions during the year.

  3. The top with s logo on the twist mechanism fell of after one round. Not sure these will be durable.

    Very comfortable shoe right out of the box. After about a month and a half of wear, (5 days a week) they developed squeeks when ever I step. Very annoying to myself and my playing partners. Any ideas? Tied WD-40 etc

  5. We live in Decatur Al. Where can you buy Skeches Golf Shoes?

      Ann,

      There’s a link to Skechers at the top of the review that will allow you to buy shoes directly or find a retailer.

      Best,

    Bought GoGolf Twist-Fit late May 2022. Really liked them but noted one twist knob was not working as smoothly as the other. Then the line broke. So how do I fix the problem?

      Wayne,

      I’m not sure that’s something that the golfer is meant to fix. I would contact Skechers about a replacement/warranty repair.

      Best,

      Matt

      Tom,

      I would contact Skechers. If you just bought them recently, I would expect they would offer you some kind of replacement.

      Best,

      Matt

    I purchased a pair of Sketchers Go Golf with twist fit and the first pair string broke while loosening after about 20 rounds. They did replace with another pair but the second pair broke while loosening after about another 20 rounds. They gave me a 35% discount code for another model. Too bad string isn’t fixable like the FootJoy brand. Customer service was great, twist fit sucks
