Ambassador Peter Flanigan Sets The Record Straight on ReGripped!

 

Article from: http://www.re-gripped.com/2017/11/canoos-shoes.html

Have you ever seen a golf shoe like that? I mean, that is one beautiful shoe. I love me some golf shoes but they have gotten away from the classic black leather of FootJoys past and have trended more toward racing stripes and other technical colors that look ok on the course but definitely not in the bar.

Canoos is a brand based out of Massachusetts that tries to bring back some classiness to golf shoes by modeling them after docksiders. I really dug the concept and recently tried out their special Walker Cup version with canvas tops.

The real superstar of these shoes (as you can tell I have worn them a bunch) is the mix of soft nubs and softspikes. It gives you the best of both worlds, strategically placed softspikes for stability, nubs for on and off course use.

The shoes work just like normal golf shoes even if they don’t look like golf shoes and that is fantastic. The styling is subtle but classy with some great scripting details from Canoos.

The sizing is spot on (at least for me) and I appreciate that the shoes have a slightly wider toe box which fits my ever growing (apparently?) feet really well.

The rawhide laces do take a little getting used to and definitely are not your traditional shoe laces. Also, I have not tried these out in adverse conditions so I can’t tell you how the canvas holds up on rainy mornings but I look forward to trying them out!

Overall, if you are looking for a different look on the course that is also at home in the bar or the boardroom, definitely check out these shoes!

Canoos® Designs Custom Shoe for 2017 Walker Cup Team

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Canoos® Designs Custom Shoe for 2017 Walker Cup Team

BOSTON, MA, September 8, 2017 — Canoos, the golf footwear innovator, announced this week that it has designed and provided custom golf shoes for Team USA in its upcoming matches for the 2017 Walker Cup.

Similar to the Ryder Cup, the Walker Cup dates back to 1922 and is a biennial competition between the 10 best amateur golfers in the U.S. versus the 10 best from Great Britain and Ireland.  This year’s event is being held September 9-10 at the Los Angeles Country Club.

Will Bacas, Canoos Brand Manager, said, “We’re very excited that the best amateur golfers in the country are going to be wearing Canoos.  Our working relationship with the USGA has generated great exposure for our brand—first at the U.S. Senior Open in Massachusetts this past summer and now in California at the Walker Cup.  The Walker Cup is one of the top spectator events in golf and we’re proud to be associated with the event.”

The Team USA shoes will feature the same design and patented golf spike outsole that Canoos uses for all of its canvas golf shoes.  “Just like our original boat golf shoes, the canvas shoes are all about providing a functional and fun alternative for golfers to wear from the course to the 19th hole and beyond.” Bacas said.

About the Walker Cup

The competition began in the wake of World War I, and came together following a series of meetings between the United States Golf Association and The Royal and Ancient Golf Club.  As part of the meetings an international team competition was discussed, with the aim of strengthening of understanding and friendship between The R&A and the USGA.  Among those attending the meetings at The R&A was George Herbert Walker, USGA president in 1920.  The idea of an amateur team competition appealed to Walker and he soon presented a plan and offered to donate a trophy.  When the press dubbed the trophy the Walker Cup, the name stuck.  The first Walker Cup Match was held in 1922 at the National Golf Links of America in Southampton, N.Y. Led by playing captain William C. Fownes Jr., the USA won the inaugural Match, 8-4. The USA leads the series 35-9-1.

The Greatest Hot Dogs in Golf From White Dogs to Polish Sausage, We Salute Them All

Golf. Summer. Hot dogs.

Try and come up with a better trifecta. We’ll wait.

While you’re thinking about it, we’d like to present some of our favorite hot dogs (and not quite hot dogs) found on golf courses across the U.S.A.

The Burger Dog at the Olympic Club in San Francisco, California

The most infamous hot dog in golf may not be a hot dog at all. The Olympic’s Burger Dog is really a beef patty formed to fit a toasted hot dog bun and slathered with cheese, onions, pickles and relish. Today, three stands dispense burger dogs across the Olympic Club’s course.

Chili Dogs at Mountain Lake in Lake Wales, Florida

It’s not hard to find hot dogs at golf course snack shacks. But the 11th tee at Florida’s Mountain Lake course serves theirs with a generous helping of chili. It may not improve your subsequent tee off, but it’s good for the soul.

Polish Sausage at the Spring Valley Country Club in Salem, Wisconsin

The Badger State is known for its hearty cuisine, so it’s understandable if a hot dog comes across as a touch too light for local tastes. Remedying that is the Spring Valley Country Club, which provides a meatier upgrade in the form of a Polish sausage between a split bun.

White Hots at the Country Club of Rochester, Rochester, New York

You’re not supposed to call it a hot dog. But the famous “white hots” native to Central and Western New York state are pretty close—they’re basically unsmoked hot dogs, which allows them to retain their white color. And there’s arguably no better place to have one than at the snack shop between the 9th and 10th holes of the Rochester Country Club.

Walter’s, Winged Foot Golf Club, Mamaroneck, New York

OK, so we might be cheating on this one. Walter’s isn’t situated on golf course property, but it is a five-minute drive from the Winged Foot Golf Club and well worth the stop. The shack, which has been operating for 98 years, serves a custom-blend hot dog that’s cooked with a secret sauce, split down the middle and covered in a house-made mustard.

FOR A LIMITED TIME ONLY: INTRODUCING THE PATRIOT The Latest Style from Canoos Is Red, White and Blue

If our Patriot Shoe celebrated a birthday, it would be the Fourth of July.

If our Patriot Shoe had a favorite book, it would be the U.S. Constitution.

If our Patriot Shoe sang, it would belt out “The Star Spangled Banner” so beautifully it would bring a tear to your eye.

Like America, the latest colorway of our Tours 3.0 Boat Golf Shoe™ is exceptional. We originally designed these special edition shoes exclusively for this week’s U.S. Senior Open, and all volunteers at the event will be wearing them.

But once we saw the finished product, we knew they were just too cool not to share with all our customers. So, we’re selling them in limited quantities online now up to size 14.

Anything less would be un-American.
