Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada (March 29, 2010) – Dawgs Golf, (www.dawgsgolf.com), a superior line of advanced-technology super-lightweight non-slip golf footwear, has partnered with Golf Trends, Inc., who will manage a team of sales representatives in Canada to showcase the full-line collection of Dawgs Golf casual footwear featuring extraordinary comfort, performance, value and style. Dawgs Golf shoes will be available for sale in Canada in early May.
“Dawgs Golf has enjoyed a great reception in the U.S., and now we are ready to extend our reach throughout Canada,” said Steve Mann, founder, president and CEO of Dawgs Golf. “We have selected Golf Trends to implement placement of our footwear collections into select Canadian pro shops, green-grass retailers and other golf retail venues.”
Based in Mississauga, Ontario, Golf Trends, Inc. was established in 1987 to provide quality merchandise to golf professionals, golf-course operators and off-course golf retailers across Canada.
“We look forward to the opportunity to place the outstanding Dawgs Golf footwear lines into pro shops and golf specialty outlets across Canada,” said Peter Goslin, president of Golf Trends, Inc.
Dawgs Golf, a division of Double Diamond Distribution, Ltd., was formed to extend its premium footwear lines into the golf arena, to meet the needs of players for lightweight shoes that offer all the comfort, style and affordability for which Dawgs are known. Dawgs footwear collections are available in select pro shops, green-grass retailers, sporting-goods stores and other golf retail outlets in the U.S. and elsewhere. In addition to its Golf Spirit and Ultralite Golf Spirit shoes, Dawgs Golf offers its entire line of high-comfort ultra-soft men’s and women’s Firestone-licensed work shoes for grounds- and greenskeepers. For kitchen, restaurant and clubhouse workers, Dawgs Golf offers its line of extreme-comfort slip-resistant Tracker series of work shoes, including the Tracker Pro and the Ultralite Tracker.
Dawgs Golf Spirit Shoes combine style and function with EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate, or closed cell resin), creating ‘The World’s Lightest Golf Shoe’, weighing in at 7 ounces for men’s size 9 Spirits and 5 ounces for women’s size 7 Spirits. Yet the Spirit does not sacrifice weight for comfort. Rather, the built-in properties of high-quality EVA act as a shock absorber for the feet. The Golf Spirit has nine strategically-placed soft spikes embedded in a rubber/EVA outsole for surefooted play, confidence and performance. The handsome Spirit shoe is available in six color combinations. Additional features of the Spirit include an adjustable Velcro strap and ventilation holes for cool comfort. The lightweight Spirit is a convenient golf shoe for travel. Due to the success of the men’s and women’s Golf Spirit, Dawgs Golf also offers the boys’ and girls’ Golf Spirit in popular colors.
Dawgs Ultralite Golf Shoes offer features including: extremely light-weight construction; rubber outsole with soft spikes; non-marking; extra-comfort antimicrobial insole; low heel impact; adjustable Velcro strap; arch support; will work with orthotics; ultra soft; super lightweight; easy to clean; and individually boxed with carry handle. Dawgs Ultralite Golf Shoes are available in a variety of colors and sizes for both men and women.
In addition to the Dawgs Golf Spirit Shoes and the Dawgs Ultralite Golf Shoes, the comprehensive lines offered by Dawgs include casual footwear for golfers to wear before and after their rounds. Men’s and women’s Spirits (without spikes), men’s and women’s Flip Flops, men’s and women’s slides, women’s “Z” sandals and women’s 3-straps comprise the variety of selections. All feature great comfort and style.
The original Dawgs company, Double Diamond Distribution, Ltd., was formed in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, in 2005 by Steve Mann and, in 2006, USA Dawgs, Inc. was formed. The concept was then and remains today to provide comfortable, lightweight, affordable performance-based shoes to suit a wide variety of needs. Dawgs Golf shoes carry this tradition to the golf course.
As always, Dawgs are a ‘foot’s best friend’ and Dawgs Golf shoes are a ‘golfer’s best friend.’
