|Performance enhancing & eco-friendly features give latest range an extra edge|
|NORTH PALM BEACH, FL. – April 19, 2021 – Italian golf fashion brand Duca del Cosma has unveiled its most advanced shoe range in the latest SS21 Collection designed to appeal to American golfers looking for premium hand-crafted footwear that push the boundaries in terms of style, performance and sustainability.|
Featuring a host of new premium styles for men and women in an array of daring colors, the vibrant Spring/Summer Collection incorporates new performance-enhancing and eco-friendly features to deliver an unrivalled look and feel on and off the course. “The SS21 collection is the most technologically advanced and eco-friendly range that we have ever introduced,” said Steve Gray, VP Sales for North America. “We expect the comfortable new models to be popular with golfers able to appreciate top-quality golf shoes that are distinctively different to anything else on the market,” he added.
The athletic Tomcat & Wildcat (RRP $209) pairing spearhead the collection and incorporate the new Airplay XII outsole that demonstrates the brand’s commitment to sustainability. This innovatively engineered outsole is made from recyclable rubber and has 2-Way-Twist triangular nubs on the pivot point for an extra smooth transition in the swing. Cone-shaped nubs ensure optimum grip and the B-Light rubber outsole delivers a lightweight feel.
OnSteam® technology provides waterproof protection in the inner lining and features a new 100% breathable, recyclable microfibre that offers the feel of leather, but with the absorption capacity eight times its weight in water. Maximum comfort is achieved with a temperature-regulating effect that keeps the foot dry in all weather conditions.
More new models include the classic looking Elpaso in the Men’s collection, as well as the stylish Siren, chic Bellezza and dashing Esti in the Women’s range. The stylish Elpaso ($229) adds a modern twist to a traditional golf shoe. A Nappa leather upper provides superior comfort, while recyclable microfibre in the sock system and insole gives the shoe an eco-friendly update. Both the OnSteam® lining and ARNEFLEX® insert sole provide waterproofing and breathability, while the spikeless Airplay XI outsole adds a striking modern look.
The stylish Siren ($219) in the Women’s range is crafted using soft Italian Nappa leather and delivers unparalleled looks for wear both on and off the course. With OnSteam® lining and an ARNEFLEX® insert sole, the waterproof shoe ensures feet remain dry and comfortable throughout the day. The shoe also features the new Airplay XII outsole. The white Bellezza ($229) is a nod to classic golf shoes of the past thanks to the stylish interchangeable kiltie that covers the laces. The outer is crafted from soft Italian leather to guarantee comfort, while cone-shaped nubs on the Airplay IX outsole deliver a solid grip.
