Yes. Being waterproof is another spectacular characteristic of Skechers’ golf shoes. 

There are some tips to keep your Skechers’ golf shoes cleaned and maintained to extend their life. The first tip is to never machine wash the shoes. For protection, apply a protector such as Skechers’ waterproofer spray. This will protect the shoes from water and stains if you wear them in damp conditions. A leather cleaning spray or lotion can also be used. With regular use, you can maintain the leather quality. Shoe creams or polishes would work for smooth leather. Make sure to choose a neutral color polish or the one that is closest to the shoe’s color. You can remove the dust with the help of a damp cloth. However, do not polish damp shoes. As for scuff resistant leather, small scuffs can be removed simply by rubbing with hand. To clean deeper scuffs and scrapes, a soft and neutral polish can be used. It will leave a prolonged, shiny coating that will keep the wear of the leather. Mesh shoes can, however, be machine washed on a gentle cycle. The protectant spray can be applied to these to protect from water and stains. For shoes with Skechers’ memory foam insole, make sure to dry the insole and shoe for 10-12 hours. 

Yes, they are. Over the years, spikeless golf shoes have advanced with forging techniques that reinforce lasting stability in them. Moreover, they can be worn both at home and on the course. Spikeless golf shoes come with a number of strengths such as more comfort, lightweight, adaptable for wet conditions, stability, support, etc. Based on various factors such as climate, course, and other things, you can decide whether you want to go for spikeless golf shoes. 

Conclusion 

One great thing about Skechers’ GO GOLF line is that all their shoes (Drive, Focus, and Fairway) are completely free from animal products. This is good news especially for vegans or generally those who are against animal cruelty. 

To answer whether Skechers’ golf shoes are of good quality, yes they most definitely are. In fact, they are particularly brilliant compared to other golf shoes in terms of their comfortability and durability. Comfortability is one thing that is not so easily achievable even for the most luxurious brands of shoes sometimes. For this reason, Skechers’ GO GOLF shoes are highly recommended.
