2010 PGA Merchandise Show – Golf Gators

At the 2010 PGA Merchandise show, Golf Gators,  unveiled their 2010 Spackler Line of Golf Flip Flops.

Golf Gators Improves Comfort and Ergonomics with 2010 Spackler Line of Golf Flip Flops

World’s First Golf Flop” more comfortable than ever

Golf Gators’ Spackler flip flops are the comfortable, durable and affordable golf sandals that are as fun to

wear as they are to play in. Ergonomically designed from space age anti-microbial materials, the 2010 Spackler line-up from Golf Gators offers the support, stability, and traction required to get around even the toughest course with ease, style and laid-back swagger.

The Spackler is a super comfortable flip flop that features a unique toe bumper and the exclusive Golf Gators Steady Outsole designed provide lateral support and stability for even the biggest hitter. Since golfers tend to play their best when their relaxed, the 2010 Spackler features:

o An updated footbed that improves ergonomics, stability and comfort

o New colors combinations including hot pink and checkered

o A new spike design that integrates Champ Stinger spikes for better control and grip on the course.

The 2010 Spackler still has the patented Golf Tee Rocket Launcher in the heel. Soft nylon straps are comfortable and add to that “laid-back” look. Available in both men’s and women’s sizes, the Spackler comes in a variety of color schemes, including, Hot Pink, Black and White Checkered, Medium Brown, and Midnight Black.

These must-have shoes come with a one-year unconditional replacement guarantee and an MSRP of $49.99

“While we may be the ultra-causal golf shoe company, we’re extremely serious when it comes to building quality, comfortable and stylish shoes.” said Michael Ray, managing partner of Golf Gators, LLC. “The innovations to the 2010 Spackler line were a direct result of feedback we received from the legion of passionate Golf Gators fans.”

I’ve request a pair of the brown golf gators to review and I should have them soon. To be completely honest, I’m not  sold on the idea of golf flip flops or golf sandals for that matter, but I’m willing to step outside of my comfort zone and give them a shot.

Geographically, they’d be a perfect fit, because Orlando golf in the summer can be brutal and there’s nothing worse than hot, sweaty, stinky(not mine ofcourse.. 🙂 ),  wrinkly feet after a round. What concerns me most about wearing golf flip flops is stability and support. I’m no expert, so perhaps one of you footwear studs could chime in, but seems to me that a soft nylon strap in place of a solid piece of sturdy material, could have some negative effects.

I would love to hear your comments on this!

    They just look like foot ware, they have their own importance. There are many surveys which say that design and construct of sports men apparel also make a difference on how they perform.
