When you're considering your next golf shoe purchase, you now have a fresh, revolutionary brand to consider: introducing PAYNTR Golf.
The PAYNTR brand is already well-established in the cricketing world. Now its founder David Paynter, a former professional cricketer, has teamed up with U.S. based golf footwear expert David Forsey to bring innovative product alternatives to the passionate golfer.
Although a keen golfer, Paynter was eager to tap into Forsey's wealth of experience in the golf footwear arena. With expertise designing golf shoes for FootJoy, Nike Golf, and most recently Under Armour, as well as making shoes for some of the world's best players, including Greg Norman, Tiger Woods, and Jordan Spieth, Forsey knows a thing or two about what a golf shoe needs to do.
PAYNTR X 001 F Golf Shoe
The PAYNTR X 001 F performance golf shoe features a multi-density TPU outsole with a 3D traction system that features a series of V-shaped knubs in the medial forefoot and lateral heel area to prevent rotational slippage.
A dual durometer midsole supports the horizontal weight shift with a firmer EVA material with rounded nubs in the lateral heel and medial forefoot zones to enhance flexibility and keep the foot on the ground as long as possible.
"PAYNTR is giving golfers a traction advantage. The shoe amplifies the golfer's ability to use the ground as leverage and generate more power to the ball." David Forsey
A softer EVA material in the lateral and medial heel, and a graphite power plate in the midsole cavity provides a responsive energy return that allows golfers to harness ground reaction forces during the golf swing.
"PAYNTR sees the golf shoe as golf equipment. Just as ball and clubhead speed are critical to performance, so is harnessing the power from the ground up in our feet. If you think about it, your foot and your shoe are the only things that are in contact with the ground. So, your shoe has to give you support, energy return, comfort, be waterproof and lightweight. We believe we achieved each of those things in the X 001 F." David Forsey
A hydrophobic coating on a lightweight breathable upper made of woven jacquard beads away rain for effective waterproofing, while a vented tongue wicks moisture away from the foot.
The PAYNTR X 001 F is available starting March 1 at www.payntrgolf.com and www.payntrgolf.eu at $160.00 and £120, respectively. It comes in three colours: classic white; cool grey; and anthracite black, which features an engineered, woven jacquard upper.
