New Fast Twist
By David R. Holland,
Dexters 2001 line of golf shoes not only looks great, they feature the new generation Fast Twist quarter-turn spikes with Dynamic Grip Technology for extra traction.
When I got my new leather-upper Players Series burgundy/black iguana saddle oxfords the first thing I tried was removing the spikes by hand. One quarter turn left and the spike was off, two turns right and it was secure again.
The Dexter Reactive Spikes are angled providing lateral traction during the swing and they flatten on hard surfaces and greens reducing the wear on the spikes. The spikes also remain sharp, even as they wear.
Dexter does recommend you use a spike wrench.

Company Behind the Shoes
There really is a Dexter, Maine.
Many ask: "What came first, the town or the company?"
Dexter, Maine was incorporated in 1816. Located on Wassookeag Lake, it can be found on a map in the center of the state -- on the 45° Parallel.
Harold Alfond and his family incorporated Dexter Shoe Company in 1957. Alfond chose Dexter because of the people's willingness to learn new trades and a strong work ethic. Since then the company has grown, employing over 3,000 craftsmen in several locations.
Shoemakers: The Dexter Difference
Each Dexter employee understands that the key to making great shoes is the combination of quality materials, excellent design and attention to details. Many Maine craftsmen followed Alfond to Dexter and acted as mentors to the other employees. Some of those original employees still remain with the company; others have passed along their skills to their children and even grandchildren who work side-by-side.
Today, more than ever, Dexter knows its shoes have to go everywhere and do anything. The company's full line of men's and women's casual and dress shoes, as well as boating, hiking, walking, bowling and golf styles, all live up to this promise. So whether you are rushing to a meeting or chasing after the kids, putting for birdie or bowling in a tournament - Dexter makes a shoe for any needs.
