Etonic Launches its First Golf Shoe with Outlast® Technology
BOULDER, Colo. (Sept. 22, 2010) - Outlast Technologies, leader in heat management and moisture reduction in performance footwear, announces new licensee Etonic is launching its firstever golf shoe lined with Outlast® technology. Etonic has incorporated Outlast® technology in the lining of the 2011 Stabilizer golf shoe to manage heat build up, offering the golfer more comfort.
The new Stabilizer golf shoe features an athletic-inspired design and the latest advancements in footwear technology. Within the shoe, Outlast® technology reduces heat and moisture by as much as 44%. This results in less blistering and odor and helps feet
stay dry and more comfortable -more comfort means better performance on the course.
"The launch of the new Stabilizer golf shoe is a first for us in that it incorporates Outlast's heat and moisture management technology, an essential for comfortable golf shoes," says Kent Wheeler, director of sales and marketing for Etonic Golf Division.
"With the addition of Outlast® technology, we know we are offering our customers the highest in performance, quality and comfort."
How Outlast® Technology Works
Constant movement inside a closed environment, like a golf shoe, generates extra heat and perspiration. Unlike a reactive wicking material that pulls moisture away, Outlast® technology proactively absorbs excess heat and stores it until there is a change in temperature, then releases it as needed. "Throughout 18 holes, golfers experience variations in foot temperature which can lead to blistering and odor," says Heather Manuel, Outlast North America sales and marketing director.
"Outlast® technology manages heat to continuously mitigate temperature swings to
balance foot temperature while on the course."
