Callaway Golf Company has announced the November 1, 2011 retail availability of its 2012 line of golf footwear for men and women. Recognised worldwide for its performance-enhancing golf clubs, Callaway's footwear products are developed with the same dedication to meaningful technology and authentic performance.
Through an extensive portfolio of proprietary and licensed technology, Callaway footwear also delivers best-inclass comfort for a full day on the course. The 2012 line introduces several new styles, including the Company's most advanced performance golf shoe to date, the RAZR. Combining the most advanced comfort and stability technologies Callaway has to offer with progressive styling that appeals to discerning golfers, including the Tour Professionals consulted during its development, the RAZR has been meticulously designed for ultimate performance on the golf course. Additionally, the 2012 line of footwear from Callaway will introduce updated styles that reflect contemporary style and fashion. Such models include the street shoe-looking Del Mar and the fashionforward KoKo for women.
Representing a major step forward in the category, the 2012 Callaway footwear line boasts unrivaled technology in golf footwear, such as a temperature regulating system from Outlast®, performance insoles from OrthoLite® and the introduction of a proprietary spike design called Callaway PINS® (Performance Insert System), developed by Softspikes®, which improves comfort and traction on-course. The PINS also decreases spike pressure on the player's foot during a full round of golf. The Company's extensive technology portfolio addresses comfort, traction and stability, and blends these performance elements with distinct styling that is unique to Callaway.
'This is the most technologically-advanced and high-performance line of footwear in Callaway's history," said John Melican, Senior Vice President, Global Soft Goods, Callaway Golf. 'We remain dedicated to offering the ultimate in comfort and performance for golfers; and while other brands might branch into golf from the worlds of fashion or athletics, Callaway is a focused Brand that offers premium and authentic golf products."
As the Company's most technologically advanced shoe, the RAZR includes the Outlast temperature management system, an Ortholite X40 molded insert, 11 Callaway PINS Performance Spikes and a waterproof, leather upper. For improved stability, the RAZR features a lightweight TPU Pro Tour Outsole. All this technology unites for unrivaled performance, stability, and comfort in a golf shoe.
