GoBe Golf Launches New Golf Footwear


GoBe Golf spent several years of research and development to produce the perfect line of golf shoes for their consumers. GoBe’s PurTecTM style is made of a water resistant material that works 20 times better than other treated leathers. It is stain resistant, breathable and durable whether in hot or wet conditions.

The GoBe DryTM line is designed to manage inner moisture through drainage channels and aeration holes thus keeping the feet from perspiration. The feet are also kept cool, fresh and dry through the use of moisture absorbent fiber lining. It is also breathable with anti microbial and anti odor properties.

The outsole of the shoes, the patent-pending Talon, innovatively uses a molded 5-point star patterned traction designed to provide each swing a maximum grip but keeping the turf from damage. The traction stripes complement the star treads giving golfers the stability even during powerful swings. Dirt and debris are kept from building up by strategically spacing the stars.

Allen added, “The stars are a terrific breakthrough in tread design because the five points on the stars can really grip the grass without creating the pressure points traditional cleats cause which tire feet.”

“The traction stripes are placed right where your feet need the most support during the swing to keep from sliding; it’s added insurance against slippage. The confidence you get from those traction points will make a big difference in the power of your swing,” he expounded.

The GoBe Golf shoes are made of a deep heel cup last from Europe ensuring that the foot is in place during the game while the wide toe area gives the foot a natural feel keeping it comfortable.
