Guaranteeing a level of quality that cannot be matched by any major footwear manufacturer, each shoe in the 2009 golf collection is touched by more than 225 sets of highly-skilled hands during production. This labor-intensive process facilitates the brand's unrivalled attention to detail that helps discerning players look, feel and play their best.

Creates a one-piece shoe construction
Ensures unrivaled durability, flexibility, lightness and weather resistance
Provides a superior level of cushioning and comfort that does not break down over time, unlike commonly-used materials such as air, rubber and EVA foam

Optimal performance is further guaranteed by:

• Ultra-soft, high-grade leathers with hydrophobic treatments for superb weather-resistance
