Equipment news: Wolsey and Tricker’s create new golf shoeMarch, 2014 Competitions
Modern British heritage brands Wolsey and Tricker’s have joined forces to create a special-edition golf shoe, which marks the very first time Tricker’s will be offering an off-the-shelf model.
5 For the collaboration, Wolsey envisioned a simple and timeless design, emphasised by a traditional welted construction.
Authentic craftsmanship is evident through the use of materials such as calf leather uppers and linings, a leather insole and a stitched leather outsole.
“We are delighted to have our first ever golf shoe collaboration with the world renowned Wolsey brand. Their knowledge and experience in the golf market combined with our expertise in traditionally-constructed welted footwear has led to this first historic shoe,” said Richard Gammidge, UK sales & new business development at Tricker’s.
Jamey Hargreaves, Wolsey’s chairman & creative director, added: “Wolsey approached Tricker’s because we wanted to produce a hand-crafted golf shoe made in England.
“Our shoe is very clean and minimal with our signature Wolsey red as an internal pop colour, which conveys our overall brand aesthetic “less-is-more.”
The shoe will be released online at Wolsey.com and TrendyGolf.com in May with a SRP of £390.
Other leading golf resorts and speciality stores will stock the shoes from July 14.
