Though best known for relatively casual golf shoe designs, Ashworth is taking a step in the traditional direction with the new Encinitas collection. The company's first wingtip model, the Encinitas ($200) is built to be worn both on and off the course and features a lightweight, spikeless outsole, soft midsole and premium leather uppers for maximum comfort. The new model is available in three color options: running white/air force blue/new navy, dark brown/tan brown/air force blue, and black/black/air force blue.
“At Ashworth Golf, we challenged ourselves to create something unique and special for the golfer,” said Masun Denison, Director, Global Product Footwear Marketing, Ashworth Golf. “While the Encinitas draws inspiration from classic footwear, we’ve updated the design details and construction methods to create a product that not only looks great, but has proven performance benefits.”In addition to the Encinitas, Ashworth has also released their first spiked shoe, the Kingston ($150). Featuring a classic saddle design, seven-cleat outsole, and leather welt construction, the Kingston is also available in three color options: white/tan brown/bordeaux, white/black/azure, and aluminum/iron/ tour white.
