Off The Beaten Cart Path
By Douglas Carey,
I never thought Id care about golf shoes, but that was until I started playing the game.
I always thought all youd need to play golf was a set of sticks, a few balls, a stogie for the back nine and good companionship. Forget all that glove and shoe stuffthose were just unnecessary extras that equipment manufacturers threw in to drive up their profit margins.
To me, shoes were as essential to golf as a mother-in-law suite is to a housethey may be there, but youd just assume forget about them when theyre occupied.
That was until my first pair of cheap golf shoes started hurting. Its tough enough to concentrate on this game without distractions, but when youve got pressure points on your feet and theyre half soaked from the early morning dew, its an ache youd just assume do without.
I also wanted a shoe that was different in looksso many of the shoes you see today are just clones of each other. I was looking for a shoe that was set apart from your typical bowling shoe with spikes.
And I found it in the Bite Saddleback shoe. Sure, it looks somewhat like your traditional golf saddle shoe, but Bite appropriately describes them as So close to being normal, but with a little flair that lets everyone know that you appreciate the differences in life. You don't mind playing by the rules, adhering to etiquette, but you're NOT everyone else
Thats definitely me.
Im NOT everyone else. Let all the others continue on through life looking like Johnnie Miller clones in their seventies style shoes. Not me. Ive got the saddle shoe with flare.
And theyre more than just differenttheyve got the attributes that all of the other top name brands carry with themnamely theyre extremely comfortable, and theyre waterproof. What more can you ask for? Theyre set-apart in style, theyre comfortable as walking shoes, and your toes wont go numb from moisture.
Youll also probably save some money (all the others dump millions into advertising at your expense).
So, if youre looking for a shoe thats a tad set-apart from the crowd, Id recommend Bite shoestheyll give you style you really dont have to think twice about. And I like that.
