Premium Shoe Company Launches Contest to Play Golf with the 2023 Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard Champion
(THE WOODLANDS, Texas) – Boxto – manufacturer of premium handcrafted leather golf shoes and belts – has re-signed PGA TOUR winner Kurt Kitayama as a player ambassador.
Currently 29th in the World Golf Rankings, Kitayama enjoyed a breakout season in 2022-23. Wearing Boxto’s Legacy Freedom Pro shoe, the 30-year-old from Chico, California notched four top-10 finishes and his first PGA TOUR win last March at the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard.
“I’m excited to re-up with Boxto for 2024, as their shoes play a critical role in me feeling and playing my best,” says Kitayama. “I love the Legacy Freedom Pro’s classic look; plus, its performance-enhancing features give me exceptional comfort and traction no matter the weather conditions.”
To celebrate the renewal, Boxto has launched a contest where one randomly selected winner will receive an all-expenses-paid golf outing (including flights, ground transportation, meals and greens fees) with Kitayama at a to-be-determined date in Q1 2024. To enter, contestants must:

The contest is open to U.S. residents ages 18 and older. The winner will be announced on Friday, December 15 at 5 p.m. EST on Boxto’s Instagram channel.
“We’re honored to welcome Kurt back as a Boxto player ambassador as he seeks to build on his best season to date,” says Raul Flores, CEO of Boxto. “Similar to his relentless pursuit of the perfect swing, we’re relentless in our pursuit of shoes that possess the perfect balance between classic elegance and modern performance.”
Boxto’s stylish yet innovative shoe designs are complemented by a streamlined supply chain. All Boxto shoes are handcrafted in Leon, Mexico, a city famous for its nearly 500-year-old leatherworking heritage. This proximity to the U.S. and Canada allows for lower order minimums and shorter delivery lead times than those of industry competitors. Abundant customization options are also available and complete the bespoke Boxto experience. This commitment to craft and customization is epitomized by ambassador relationships with Kitayama, major champion and 2024 Presidents Cup captain Jim Furyk, and LPGA star Charley Hull.
Boxto specializes in handmade premium golf shoes and belts. Inspired by the centuries-old leatherworking heritage of Leon, Mexico – the unofficial footwear capital of North America and hometown of company founder, Raul Flores – Boxto’s Heritage, Legacy, Exo and Inspiration product lines are available online and at fine golf shops worldwide. Combining timeless design, artisanal craftsmanship and advanced technology, Boxto creates golf shoes that embody “the soul of the game.”
