We are witnessing an explosive growth in spikeless golf shoes in the first quarter of 2013. Golf Datatech says although spikeless golf shoes have a 35% market share (triple what it was in January 2011), 90% who are aware of spikeless golf shoes, only 39% have purchased them.
On the one hand, that’s an 18% increase from the same number last year. I tried two weeks ago shoes with ridged soles with quite good experience. I think it is just question of time when we get used to spikeless golf shoes and ready to admit that they gonna be alright.
It seems to me that even Ashworth Golf is ready to give up and break out from their traditional style. Recently Ashworth Golf has announced the release of the new Cardiff ADC spikeless golf shoe to its expanding portfolio of versatile golf footwear.
To maximize performance, the Cardiff ADC’s new spikeless outsole was recreated to deliver even more stability and traction in both dry and wet conditions with new strategically-placed traction lugs designed to deliver optimal grip both in varying conditions and surfaces.
Collegiate Navy/Airforce Blue/Pebble, White/Neutral Grey/Airforce Blue, Brown/Dark Brown/Fairway and Black/Cardinal/White available on September 1, 2013 and White/Dark Grey/Fairway and Neutral Grey/Dark Grey/True Red available on March 1, 2014 with an MSRP of $120 USD. The women’s leather Cardiff ADC will be available in four colorways beginning September 1 for the same price as the men's version.
