Callaway® Apparel Launches Fall 2018 Collections

The fall season is here. While the leaves are falling off of the trees and everything is starting to slowly fall into dormancy it doesn’t mean an end to bright colors. After all, before the leaves fall from the branches that line the fairways they show off bright oranges, yellows and reds. But they aren’t the only thing bright this autumn.

Callaway Golf Apparel recently launched its Fall 2018 Collection and the splashes of color are vivid. Color palettes consisting of bright blues (Hawaiian Ocean) and what they call “Bittersweet” highlight the collection. The orange in the “Bittersweet Collection” looks a lot like coral. The collection as one might expect features layering pieces as well to help keep you warm as fall golf turns into winter hibernation. A sad reality.

Please see the press release below for full details. Thank to Stuart Goldstein of RG Narrative Inc. for sharing.

New Balance Golf Introduces Striker

Thanks go out to Jackie Beck for sharing this press release.

New Balance knows a thing or two about footwear. The Boston, Mass based athletic footwear company has been around for 112 years starting back in 1906 when they were known as the “New Balance Arch Support Company”. Much has changed in the last century and with that has come valuable research in kinesiology in how the foot moves. It only makes sense for a company like New Balance to be involved with golf. New Balance is proud to introduce the new Striker golf shoe. An athletic-style shoe boasting lightweight and less “drop”.

 

A High-Performance, Lightweight Athletic-Style Cleated Golf Shoe

Boston, Mass, October 9, 2018 – New Balance Golf introduces the Striker golf shoe, a lightweight, athletic-style cleated shoe designed to provide golfers with the perfect fit, comfort and maximum performance. Like all New Balance footwear, the Striker is ready to wear right out of the box.

NB Tour Features:

Fit:

New Balance is known for its excellent fit in footwear and golfers will experience this in the new Striker golf shoe. The Striker is built on a PW-1 last which gives golfers a wider forefoot with a shallow toe box depth and a lower instep height allowing them better ground feel throughout their swing and in every step on the fairways. The waterproof microfiber leather upper has skeletally engineered, ultralight FantomFit™ support to provide the ultimate fit.

Comfort:
When it comes to comfort, once again, New Balance gets rave reviews due to its foam compounds used in its golf and athletic shoes. The REVlite® midsole, originally designed to provide lightweight cushioning to runners, provides maximum comfort for golfers while walking the course. This innovative foam midsole combined with CUSH+® insoles create ultra-soft responsive cushioning and comfort without sacrificing durability or stability.

Performance:
The ultimate test of a shoe is how it performs under all types of conditions. Comfort, traction, and durability are the keys to providing superior performance for golfers with the Striker. The TPU outsole features flex grooves that are specifically designed to move with the natural motion of the foot. The Striker uses the low-profile Champ Slim-Lok®

Zarma Tour cleat system* with seven cleats. The cleat system is anti-clogging and is highly durable with superior traction.
