OGIO Steps Into the World of Shoes With Four Collections


New golf shoes designed by OGIO cater to the ever-evolving golfer looking for fashion, performance and comfort 


The new OGIO shoe collections will be on display for the first time at the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, FL January 22-24 at Booth 3462 

Salt Lake City, UT (January 16, 2013) – OGIO, a global leader in golf bag, apparel and accessories design, expands its top-of-the-line golf apparel family with the introduction of its highly-anticipated footwear. Available in four different models, the Race, City Spiked, City Turf and Sport shoes each have unique design elements dependent on each golfers needs.

Inspired by OGIO’s heritage in adrenaline sports and men’s lifestyle fashion, the new shoe collections deliver three crucial features, style, comfort and performance. The design of each shoe is made to stabilize your swing platform and improve your balance to enhance your game. Built with high quality materials for comfort and durability, OGIO’s golf shoes offer the most comfortable “out of the box” golf experience, while withstanding the toughest conditions in all types of climates.

The Race shoe draws its inspiration from OGIO’s heritage in adrenaline sports, embodying the ideal blend of a fast look, custom fit comfort and performance. Similar to the technology used to build a race car, it’s built on a perfectly balanced frame where weight, support and traction are maximized to improve your stability. The Race is crafted from the most exotic supple leather and features OGIO’s ‘Synkfit’ insole, an internal stabilizing system that minimizes the movement of your foot inside the shoe, therefore maximizing the transfer of energy into the golf ball. Comfort is also enhanced with OGIO’s Clymate Control, a one way ventilation system that allows heat to escape from the shoe and prevents one’s foot from overheating.

The City Turf shoe is built with the on-the-go golfer in mind. Inspired by an urban lifestyle, the City Turf fuses a dress shoe, casual shoe and golf shoe. With OGIO’s proprietary Permaspyke, the City Turf delivers perfect traction straight from the office to the sidewalk to the golf course. Edgy lines and stitches create a fashionable appearance sure to turn heads on and off the course. City Turf is crafted with full grain, waterproof leathers and features OGIO’s Synkfit insole system.

The City Spiked shoe offers the same stylish upper look as the City Turf, but with spikes intelligently integrated into OGIO’s Ground Control traction outsole. This additional support guarantees golfers maximum traction and stability during the most demanding conditions. Designed with a square toe box, this shoe brings today’s popular off-course style to a dressy golf shoe while serving the joint benefit of natural foot position, maximizing balance during a golf swing. The City Spiked also features the Synkfit insole for stability and a built in lateral torsion stabilizer.

The Sport shoe is a creation built to embody the attributes found in OGIO’s Endurance Division. An aggressive look, available in three color choices, this model is made for users looking for a combination of lightweight materials, breathable custom comfort and a fast look. Crafted from half leather, half breathable mesh, it offers a natural airflow in and out of the shoe with each step while maintaining the stability a golfer needs during the swing. The Sport features a uniquely design that incorporates OGIO’s XWRAP upper design, coupled with its built in Lateral Torsion Control system and Synkfit Insole to ensure ultimate stability in such a light and breathable shoe.

“We are constantly on a mission to offer our loyal customers the most fashion forward, intelligently designed gear for their golf inspired lifestyles.” said Tom Gocke, Global VP of OGIO Golf. “By offering intelligently designed footwear, we’re excited to offer OGIO gear that will enhance, yet, another part the game. PGA Tour multiple winner and veteran Aaron Baddeley has studied and embraced our footwear and has chosen to use it to support his swing on tour for 2014.”

OGIO’s new footwear collection will be exhibited at the PGA 2014 Merchandise Show in Orlando, FL January 22 – January 24 at OGIO’s booth located at 3462.
