Matt Kuchar has become the first brand ambassador for the burgeoning golf division of the US footwear company Skechers.
The signing of World number 5 and winner of seven events on the PGA Tour is an important landmark for the Skechers Performance Division as it pushes its combination of high-performance technology and innovation with the utmost levels of comfort into the golf market.
Kuchar, who will team up with the Performance Division to design his own signature line of shoe, is clearly impressed.
Whether competing or practicing, I’m on my feet for hours, so the comfort and performance of my shoes is a critical factor in my success. In trying out the GOgolf line, I
was really pleased both with the shoe and with the Skechers Performance Division team. Their attention to detail and expertise in performance footwear is impressive.
Skechers GoGolf takes inspiration from the companies award winning running and walking shoes and they are bringing this technological know how into golf with shoes designed to perform both on and off the course.
Rick Higgins, VP of Merchandising / Marketing in the Skechers Performance Division was excited at the partnership with Kuchar and the possibilities it brings in pushing the boundaries as the company looks to embed itself in the golf market.
Matt brings a great deal of knowledge to our product development. He offers all the qualities we look for in a brand ambassador so we’re thrilled to partner with him on our Skechers GOgolf line. We work closely with our elite athletes to build innovative footwear and Matt’s insight will help infuse our existing award-‐winning technologies into our golf offering.
