Stuburt brings waterproof eVent fabrics technology to performance golf footwear
Story published at 14:36, Friday, March 11th, 2016
eVent fabrics® is pleased to welcome Stuburt Golf to the group of brands that use eVent’s patented waterproof membrane technology in footwear. Stuburt’s three styles of performance footwear with eVent will be available from major retailers in the United Kingdom and Europe.
“We’re excited to welcome Stuburt,” said Chad Kelly, Director of Sales and Product Line for eVent fabrics. “The golf market is ready for our advanced, highly breathable technology that keeps feet dry and comfortable.”
eVent’s patented Direct Venting™ (DV) technology is based on a waterproof membrane that is air permeable—meaning that billions of tiny open pores allow heat and moisture vapour (sweat) inside the footwear to escape in vapour form. The pores in the membrane are too small to let water pass through from the outside, so feet stay dry from rain and wet conditions.
“Golfers are commonly exposed to the elements,” explained Kelly. “The grass will be wet, it will shower on the far reaches of the course, and the game is played in all seasons. So waterproof footwear is critical. But eVent’s additional advantage is that it enhances breathability so feet won’t overheat. eVent lets blister-causing moisture and heat inside the shoe quickly dissipate out of the shoe for added comfort.”
Stuburt is offering three men’s footwear styles that feature eVent Direct Venting technology.
- The Classic Tour eVent Spikeless (available March 1) combines first-class craftsmanship with classic wingtip design made from full-grain leather. The spikeless rubber outsole has traction modules to give excellent grip. Inside a cushioned footbed enhances feel and comfort.
- The Cyclone eVent Spikeless (available March 1) features a microfiber upper that has memory characteristics to help prevent feet from swelling after hours of walking the course. Its lightweight EVA foam midsole and cushioned footbed ensure long lasting comfort.
- Finally, the Cyclone Men’s Golf Boot (currently available) is a microfibre midcut boot that gives added support, weather protection and traction, with 6mm studs. Its padded collar and tongue, as well as lightweight EVA midsole, give comfort.
