“We’re very pleased with the positive feedback our new Crocs Golf with Hank Haney collection has received, including being named ‘Best New Product’ at the PGA Merchandise Show,” said Dale Bathum, Senior Vice President of Product Development for Crocs. “This award speaks to the innovative combination of comfort and function behind these new products that makes them unlike any other golf shoe on the market.” All Crocs™ Golf with Hank Haney styles are intended to be worn both on and off the course and were designed with input from Haney based on his experience as a leading golf instructor for the past 35 years. Each of the new Crocs™ Golf styles features a unique hybrid construction plus a midsole and footbed made with Crocs’ proprietary Croslite™ material, providing form-to-foot cushioning for all day wear. The new collection strikes the perfect balance between comfort and technical engineering for the casual golfer. In addition to the spring styles debut, attendees got a first glance at the new Crocs™ Golf fall collection, which included the Langdon LoPro and the Tyne LoPro – both styles are designed to offer the golfer more technical styling with a one-year limited waterproof warranty.
