Stuburt, the British brand dating back to 1860 with a fine reputation in sports footwear and, more recently, affordable quality clothing and accessories, is delighted to announce a freeze on prices for all products throughout Autumn/Winter and into 2017.
Over recent years Stuburt has become the number one choice for many in the industry looking for price-point golf shoes, outerwear and apparel and the latest announcement to not increase prices on its range of performance products for Autumn/Winter 2016 and for the SS17 sell-in, promises to cement their position as the go-to brand for affordable quality.
“With so many prices in the industry going up as a result of Brexit, market forces and weak exchange rates, we felt it was important to make a statement and support the pros and our retailer partners” said Graeme Stevens, Managing Director of Stuburt. “We wanted to ensure continuity for our customers. For us it is about working together with retailers and offering them something different; quality footwear and apparel at competitive price points and with great retail margins too.”
Stuburt has been making high-quality shoes since 1860, kitting out some of the top performers in the worlds of yachting, ice-skating, football and golf. In recent years, the brand has also branched out successfully into the world of golf apparel, outerwear and accessories, where the focus has also been on unrivalled affordable quality.
“Our entry level Hydro-Sport shoes feature a classic, sporty design, 12-month warranty and retail at just £44.99 with over 50% margin for the retailer. So it’s a no brainer for pros looking for a price-point alternative to the bigger brands and one of the reasons we are fast filling the gap left as the big brands vacate that entry-level part of the market,” added Stevens.
