Srixon is well known for the golf clubs and balls it makes and sells under that name, and also for the woods, irons, wedges and putters it produces under the Cleveland and Xxio brand names. Now, the company is offering two golf shoe models in partnership with the North American division of the Japanese multinational known as Asics.
“We are excited to introduce Asics golf footwear into the U.S. golf market with the Gel-Course Glide and the Gel-Course Duo Boa,” said Mike Powell, president of sales and marketing at Srixon/Cleveland Golf/Xxio. “Asics is a huge global sports brand and widely recognized as the leader in performance footwear. They have a rich heritage of innovation and product quality and align with our values as a company. These two models will appeal to golfers that enjoy an active and healthy outdoor lifestyle and love the performance and comfort that Asics is famous for.”
In addition to featuring the Boa lacing system, the Gel-Course Duo Boa shoes are waterproof and come with a seven-spike traction sole. As for the Gel-Course Glides, they come with traditional lacing as well as a spikeless sole pattern and breathable mesh. Technicians describe them as water resistant.
Powell said both sets of shoes are athletic in design and provide a supportive fit for golfers as well as a lightweight frame that is made to promote stability and flexibility. Asics’ Rearfoot Gel cushioning technology reduces impact and increases shock absorption, while toe and lateral rubber wraps are made to help balance throughout the golf swing.
