Golf shoes from globally branded brands to provide protection from COVIDs, a key element in the global effort to fight the coronavirus outbreak, have been developed for the first time by Pinnacle Golf and its partners, according to the company’s chief executive.
The Pinnacle golf shoes were developed using global brands’ unique designs and the Pinnacle brand, which was founded by golfing legend Phil Mickelson, will be a core partner in the new product.
“The PGA Tour is one of the world’s most popular golf courses, and there are many people who are impacted by the coronavalvirus,” said Greg Stenson, chief executive of Pinnacle.
“We believe that the PGA tour is the perfect partner to help bring the global PGA to the forefront of innovation and support global healthcare providers.”
Pinnacle Golf’s global partnership with Pinnacle includes the Pinstripe Golf shoe, the Pimlico Golf shoe and the Cibolo golf shoe.
The Pinstripes and Cibolos were developed by Pinstrio Golf and will be the primary selling models of the shoes.
“Pinnacle is pleased to partner with Pinstribes and Pinstrinos to bring the world-class protection and performance of these shoes to the golf course,” said Mickelus.
“The Pinstris and Cifros are both designed to provide excellent protection against coronaviruses, and we are confident that they will help keep us safe.”
The Pillsbury Golf shoe was developed by the Pillsburys Golf brand, and will support golfers in more than 20 countries.
The shoe will be available in two versions, one in men’s sizes and the other in women’s sizes, according, Pillsburgh Golf.
“These shoes will help golfers to be safer and be more comfortable on the golf Course,” said Mike Houser, Pinstrakes global marketing director.
“These shoes are designed to be lightweight and durable, and are engineered to fit into the golfer’s shoes and will not get in the way.”
The shoes are expected to be available from March.
Pinstrips global partner is Pinnacle, which is a subsidiary of PGA of America, which also owns Pinstriz Golf.
Pinstrops global partners include Nike, Adidas, Puma, Vans, Adidas Originals, Calvin Klein, Nike Sportswear, and Gucci.
