BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS (February 4, 2015) – New Balance Golf continues to add to its popular line of golf footwear with the introduction of the 2003. The cleated athletic style golf shoe will debut in golf shops this month. The 2003 is designed for the golfer looking for a lightweight cleated golf shoe that provides ultimate traction and comfort.
The 2003 golf shoe is built on a performance fit golf last that features a waterproof mesh upper with a TPU stability cage for ultralight support and fit, and a REVLite® 10mm drop* midsole for lightweight cushioning and premium responsiveness. The outsole utilizes the Champ One-Lok® Zarma Tour** cleat system. Golfers will enjoy the same style, comfort, and fit they are accustomed to from New Balance footwear, plus performance technologies designed to help enhance their golf game.
“The 2003 looks and fits like a running shoe, but has the traction elements that will provide stability and balance throughout a golfer’s swing,” said Bruce Schilling, General Manager of Golf and Tennis, New Balance. “Our customers have been very pleased with the initial sell-through of our introduction line. Now with the addition of the 2003, 574B and other styles for men and women, we are able to provide more options for different types of golfers, with many styles offered in widths up to 4E.”
