For every pair sold, the brand will donate money to the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre to help save the critically endangered King Cheetah that inspired the pattern on the trendy shoe’s upper.

 

Women golfers looking to dazzle on and off the course can look to the trendy BOREAL shoe as it offers a super appealing appearance matched with top functionality. The premium Nappa leather construction and ARNEFLEX® memory foam insert sole combine to provide exceptional comfort both on and off the course, while the two colourways both complete a number of fashionable golfing outfits.

The PADOVA style is the perfect choice for golfers seeking a ‘Sporty’ sneaker offering the performance of a well-designed golf shoe. It features the super lightweight D-Eva outsole to reduce foot fatigue and provide optimal support and a sturdy grip. The easy-to-maintain recycled microfibre upper ensures the shoe is suitable for the golf course and other activities away from it. The stunning White/Gold option delivers an extra special look for those golfers wanting to make a real statement both on and off the course.

 

The GIORDANA is a great option for those golfers seeking a design that can be worn in all walks of life. Suitable to be worn in everyday life, as well as on the golf course, it delivers out-of-the-box comfort thanks to its sturdy construction of an Airplay 8 outsole and breathable ARNEFLEX® memory foam insert sole that fits seamlessly to a golfer’s foot shape.

 

The brand also supports several top LPGA and LET Tour players including British Major winner and Solheim Cup star Georgia Hall, who wears the GIORDANA and BELLEZZA golf shoes to play in and will choose her preferred style depending on the playing conditions each week.

 

Sharing her thoughts on Duca del Cosma, Georgia Hall said: “I love everything about the Duca del Cosma brand – from the quality of design and comfort of the shoes to the storyline behind the Italian styling and craftsmanship.”

 

Duca del Cosma was founded in Italy in 2004 by Baldovino Mattiazzo, who still designs the distinctive collections for men and women golfers. Since 2016, the company has been reinvigorated by Frank van Wezel and his wife Caroline to now see its shoes sold in more than 40 different countries worldwide. The global brand operates from four offices around the world – The Netherlands (HQ), the United States, United Kingdom and South Africa.
