“I spend a lot of time in and around the golf course so functionality and comfort are extremely important to me,” said Haney. “Crocs listened to my input and suggestions, and I believe the Crocs Golf with Hank Haney collection provides golf fans with a complete golf shoe that combines style, performance, and all around comfort. From the range to the clubhouse, the collection features a variety of styles for both men and women.”
“The Crocs Golf collection is a natural brand extension for Crocs as it offers a casual alternative to the traditional golf shoe,” said Dale Bathum, senior vice president of product development for Crocs. “They still provide all of the same technical engineering, but with the comfort and innovative design consumers have come to expect from Crocs footwear. The launch of this new line continues to showcase the depth and breadth of our styles. Currently, we offer more than 250 styles of Crocs shoes, ranging from the original clog-style shoe to wedges, flats, boots and, now golf shoes.”
