GoBe introduces new Pride golf shoe with retro-athletic appeal

AUSTIN, Minn. -- GoBe Golf is pleased to introduce the Pride golf shoe for men. It joins GoBe's full line of high performance footwear with a game-changing tread designed for ideal traction and maximum grip throughout the golf swing. The Pride is guaranteed to turn heads on the fairways with its bright white upper and vibrant accent color options for a retro-athletic appeal.

"Since GoBe's launch in early fall, we are overjoyed by the interest in the marketplace," said Joe Allen, President, GoBe Golf. "The Pride shoes are my personal favorite with their sporty, casual appeal."

The Pride features GoBe's innovative, patent-pending Talon™ tread sole design for the ultimate traction on the course without the need for cleats for a "go anywhere" design. It 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. The Talon™ sole is made of single density, Grade A TPU, which is as flexible as rubber but far more durable.

GoBe's PurTEC© upper is specifically designed to be roughly 20 times more water resistant than treated leathers. It breathes, keeps its color and shape, resists stains and is extremely durable in hot or wet conditions.

The GoBe Dry™ shoe liner has a patent-pending interior moisture management system; with drainage channels, aeration holes at flex points and notches above the toe area to drain perspiration away from feet. The moisture-wicking fiber lining also aerates, and has anti-microbial and anti-odor properties to keep feet cool, dry and fresh. The liner has an EVA soft, core center for extra padding at the ball and heel of the foot to provide three times more shock absorption than a standard shoe liner.

To extend the life of their shoes, customers can order an additional pair of shoe liners at no charge through www.gobegolf.com. GoBe Golf footwear is built on a European last with a deep heel cup to keep the foot in place and a wide toe area for a natural, comfortable fit.

The Pride is available in white with four accent colors - black, forest green, burnt orange and blue. GoBe shoes are sold through golf course pro shops, specialty stores and online at www.gobegolf.com for a suggested retail price of $159.
