Bite is the company that launched its first sandal line more than five years ago and created a niche for itself. Bite described the golf-shoe market as "scary" and that it was dominated by a very few "Big Boys."
So Bite pioneered the golf sandal and introduced the idea to consumers that there was more to choose from than their father's wingtips and traditional saddle shoes.
Now, Bite says it looks like the "Big Boys" want a piece of the action in the golf casual category that Bite has created and continues to dominate.
"I saw an opportunity and I ran with it," said Dale Bathum, president of Bite Footwear and inventor of the golf sandal. "The Big Boys may be introducing more golf casual footwear, but our customers have already embraced our products for not only being different, but for being the most comfortable and coolest shoes on the market -- and that is why we have an indistinguishable product."
The Canyon High and Canyon Low has been joined by the Tradition II and the new black/white Saddleback. The Kahuna of the "Exodus Sandal Series" for men and the 3-Under of the "Snake River Series" for women is also new from Bite.
