Ogio is giving it a go in golf shoes

February 17, 2014


__There is an unknown when a company branches out from its specialty to launch a product in a new category. The team at Ogio, however, believes its on solid footing (pun intended) as it steps beyond golf and travel bags into the golf shoe market in 2014.

Its foursome of models--the Race, City Spiked, City Turf and Sport--trade off the company's reputation for sturdy, stylish products. All four feature the company's Synkfit insole, which quickly molds to a golfer's foot and aims to minimize movement inside the shoe.

The top-of-the-line Race ($170) stands out with its leather outsole and ventilation system to keep the foot from overheating. It's also designed with a wide-toe area for increased comfort and stability.

The entire line is expected to be available in stores in May 15.
