GoBe introduces new Elite and Spirit golf shoe styles for women

AUSTIN, Minn. -- GoBe Golf has introduced two new styles of footwear for women - the Elite and Spirit. Both styles of high performance footwear feature GoBe's innovative, patent-pending Talon™ tread sole design that allows for superior traction on the course without the need for cleats for a "go anywhere" design.

"The Elite and Spirit styles combine premium technologies for exceptional performance, comfort and a stylish look," said Joe Allen, President of GoBe Golf. "We challenged our designers to create a forward trending shoe that could stand the test of time."

The Elite bridges the traditional styling of a saddle shoe with a modern updated design to produce a timeless look. Two color options are available: white with black patent accents, and white with silver accents. The neutral colors make these "go to" shoes to match any outfit, and are perfect for traveling.

The Spirit has a sporty look with a white body and a color-capped toe and heel. The classic design is a youthful, fun style that will flatter women. The Spirit also comes with black patent accents or an electric, sky blue accent color option. Both are versatile enough to be paired with many of today's golf fashion lines.

The Talon™ tread sole design uses a molded 5-point star traction pattern to provide maximum grip throughout the golf swing. The points of each star grip the grass, creating superior traction without damaging the turf. The stars are strategically placed on the sole to keep dirt and debris from building up. The sole's non-slip vertical and horizontal traction stripes complement the star treads and stabilize the golfer during the powerful motion of the swing.

GoBe Golf footwear has a deep heel cup for a snug fit to keep the foot in place and a wide roomy toe area for a natural, comfortable fit. Even women with narrow feet will feel comfortable swinging a club in these shoes.

The GoBe Dry™ shoe liner offers drainage channels and aeration holes at flex points to drain perspiration away from feet. The moisture-wicking fiber lining has anti-microbial and anti-odor properties to keep feet cool, dry, and fresh. For ultimate comfort, the liner has an EVA soft, core for extra padding at the ball and heel of the foot to provide three times more shock absorption than a standard liner. To extend the life of the shoes, customers can order an additional pair of shoe liners at no charge through www.gobegolf.com. GoBe's PurTEC© innovative upper is specifically designed to be roughly 20 times more water resistant than treated leathers. It breathes, keeps its color and shape, and resists stains even in hot or wet weather conditions. The Elite and Spirit will be sold only through high-end resorts, golf course pro shops, and online at www.gobegolf.com for a suggested retail of $139.
