What we say:

 

The Skechers GO GOLF Torque - Twist is the same shoe as the original GO GOLF Torque, except it utilizes a boa dial fastening system. This added feature allows for more microadjustments and thus a slightly better overall fit. Whether it's worth the extra $20 is more of a personal thing. Their have been some concerns about how durable this closure system is, but so far so so good! The Skechers GO GOLF Torque - Twist is an amazing golf shoe for those on a budget. In fact, it's one of our favorite affordeable boa golf shoes. Kudos to Skechers for catering to this demographic, because a lot of golf shoes out there aren't affordable to quite a few golfers. We don't think it's the prettiest golf shoe in the world, but it makes up for this with its comfort. It's easy to forget you're actually wearing golf shoes! Another thing we love about the GO GOLF Torque - Twist is its traction system. So it might not be as lightweight or flexible as more expensive shoes, but it grips amazingly well, which when combined with it's good waterproofing makes it a nice wet weather option.  We're really hard pressed to find anything wrong with the GO GOLF Torque - Twist. In our opinion, this golf shoe is perfect for beginner to intermediate golfers on a budget who need something realiable and durable, and most importantly, something they can play year-round in.
