On The Table Read ebook Magazine UK, FootJoy and Garrett Leight share their new limited range or sunglasses and footwear, with easy-going Southern California style.
Eyewear lifestyle brand Garrett Leight California Optical (GLCO) and iconic golf shoe brand FootJoy are partnering to create a limited series of sunglasses and footwear that bridges FootJoy’s high performance golf wear with GLCO’s easy-going Southern California lifestyle.
Premier Golf Shoes
Fronting the collaboration is a collection of classic Premiere Series golf shoes for men and women with custom tortoise accents that include FootJoy’s premium construction and highquality materials and design. Three limited edition styles are available including two styles in men’s, Premiere Series Tarlow and Packard, and a stunning cap toe option for women. Paired with the shoes is a unique sunglass offering from GLCO’s Spring Summer 22’ collection, Elkgrove Sun.
The GLCO x FootJoy Packard is a featherlight, understated, and technically exquisite shoe inspired by the clean lines of modernist architecture. A contemporary interpretation of the timeless saddle shoe design, and preferred by many of the world’s best golfers, the Packard features handselected Pittards® of England soft full grain, waterproof leather uppers accentuated by a bold Tortoise print banded saddle.
Other features include full leather linings, a suede heel pocket, plush co-branded GLCO x FJ OrthoLite® FitBed with molded heel cup and the Versatrax+ outsole for Tourproven traction and performance.
The GLCO x FootJoy Tarlow is a champion of rakish golf style preferred by golf trend-setters like Justin Thomas, Ian Poulter and Billy Horschel. Like the Packard, this artistic cap toe design features premium, hand-selected, full grain leather and luxurious calfskin details as well as the VersaTrax+ outsole configuration. However, the signature GLCO patent leather Tortoise print runs the length of the eye stay and pops on the heel counter to deliver a dramatic and elegant statement.
Women’s Premiere Series
A similar but refined cap toe design is available for women. Minimalist and modernist, the GLCO x FootJoy Women’s Premiere Series shoes deliver truly timeless styling linking generations of players seeking to wear iconic, classic golf footwear. The shoes feature beautiful and comfortable waterproof leather uppers, meticulous stitch details, a molded FitBed created specifically for women and the performance-oriented VersaTrax+ outsole. You’ll be the envy of your foursome with the incredible patent leather Tortoise print that dazzles across the top line of the shoe.
Paired with the shoes is a unique colorway from the Spring Summer 22’ collection, Elkgrove Sun. Inspired by Garrett Leight’s favorite golf legend Chi Chi Rodriguez and his inimitable style, GLCO x FootJoy Elkgrove Sun is an easy-going sunglass that features ’60s-inspired contoured temples, deep square lens, a larger and slightly oversized frame and a distinction browline. The frame has a matching Georgia Tortoise temple with a G15 lens and gold metal plating.
“As a huge fan of the sport and FootJoy’s cutting-edge craftsmanship, this partnership was a no-brainer” says Garrett Leight. ”I’m looking forward to blending the golf world with our laid-back and classic Southern California lifestyle. Our two brands share a commitment for comfort, style, and undisputed quality.”
The complete collection will retail on footjoy.com, garrettleight.com, GLCO retail stores, and other select retailers.
