Las Vegas (December 6, 2011) – Dawgs Golf™ (www.dawgsgolf.com), a superior line of advanced-technology super-lightweight golf footwear, will exhibit at the National Athletic Directors Conference to be held Dec. 9-13 in Indianapolis. Dawgs will present to attending scholastic athletic directors the various Dawgs footwear lines as well as the Dawgs Partners program (www.dawgspartners.com), a new nationwide scholastic fundraising program.
“We look forward to the opportunity to exhibit our Dawgs footwear lines to this national gathering of high school athletic directors,” said Steve Mann, founder, president and CEO of Dawgs Golf. “Our new Dawgs Partners program should be of great interest as an exciting and effective fundraising tool for schools coast to coast.”
A high school that becomes a Dawgs Partner™ can raise funds for its programs through the online sale of Dawgs shoes, including footwear customized for the school. The Dawgs Partners program allows each institution to reach its students, faculty, staff, families, boosters – in fact, its entire educational community – with the opportunity to purchase Dawgs footwear to help support the school and its programs. A portion of the proceeds from each Dawgs Partners sale is returned to the school to help support the academic and/or athletic programs of its choice.
About Dawgs Golf
Dawgs Golf (www.dawgsgolf.com) , a division of USA Dawgs, Inc., was formed in 2009 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 Golf footwear collections are available in select pro shops, green-grass retailers, sporting-goods stores and other golf retail outlets around the country.
Dawgs Golf Spirit shoes are the “World’s Lightest Golf Shoes.” They consist of a rubber outsole with soft spikes, a massaging foot bed, arch support and an adjustable Velcro™ strap to accommodate most foot widths. Available in women’s sizes 5-11, they can be worn either with or without socks. They are non-marking, odor resistant and easy to clean. Dawgs Golf Spirit shoes combine style and function with EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate, or closed cell resin), weighing in at 7 ounces for men’s size 9 Spirits and 5 ounces for women’s size 7 Spirits. Yet the Dawgs Golf 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 Dawgs Golf Spirit has nine strategically-placed molded rubber spikes embedded in a rubber/EVA outsole for surefooted play, confidence and performance. The handsome Dawgs Golf Spirit shoe is available in various color combinations: 12 for women, nine for men and three each for girls and boys. Additional features of the Dawgs Golf Spirit include an adjustable Velcro strap and ventilation holes for cool comfort. The lightweight Dawgs Golf Spirit is a convenient golf shoe for travel.
Dawgs Ultralite Golf shoes offer features including: extremely light-weight construction; rubber outsole with molded rubber spikes; non-marking; extra-comfort 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.
Dawgs Golf Crossover shoes, with a canvas upper, feature ultra comfort and are extremely lightweight. The Crossover has pre-molded rubber traction nubs for secure footing and extra-comfort insoles. Dawgs Golf Crossover, available in several colors and styles for men and women, can be worn in the clubhouse or to play a round of golf. The Crossover is being recognized as the most comfortable canvas shoe on the market.
In addition to the Dawgs Golf Spirit shoes, the Dawgs Ultralite Golf Shoes and the Dawgs Golf Crossover, 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.’
