SAN DIEGO, CA, August 16, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- TOMO, a modern golf apparel company headquartered in San Diego, today announced its launch with the release of TOMO Vol. 1: a fashionable, lightweight, spikeless golf shoe that boasts both style and comfort at a price point under $100. The shoes are exclusively available online at tomogolf.com.
TOMO was committed to designing a shoe that was functional and fashionable and could be worn anywhere, which is reflective in its urban style. Free of loud logos and busy designs, its elegance lies in its simplicity.
TOMO Vol. 1 boasts a water resistant, soft, single-layer of knit to enhance comfort and breathability. As a result, the shoes are lightweight, weighing in at less than 10 ounces compared to the average weight of 15 ounces. A typical 18-hole golf course spans six miles. With 2,000 steps in a mile, the five-ounce difference is equivalent to lifting an extra 3,750 pounds.
TOMO's founder Sunny Chou spent more than two years researching materials and over a year in the design phase, envisioning a spikeless golf shoe that wouldn't confine him to the course.
"I wanted a spikeless golf shoe that would transition seamlessly from the golf course to just about anywhere else you can think of, so I needed to make a shoe that had more comfort, high quality materials and great style," Chou said. "I wasn't able to find what I was looking for in the market, so I decided to make it."
While other shoes typically favor EVA, TPU or rubber for the soles, TOMO Vol. 1s use an eco-friendly polyurethane – a pricier material requiring more expertise to work with. The shoes exclusively feature FLEX Technology, a process that employs different densities of the polyurethanes in each sole to maximize comfort and performance. FLEX Technology allows the shoe to bounce back with every step, providing a luxurious, cushy experience while offering wearers grip, traction and durability.
TOMO Vol. 1 colorways include Charcoal, Stone, Forest and Sand. The shoes are offered in men's sizes 8 to 13, including half sizes. Customers can expect to receive their shoes in a box comprised of 100 percent recyclable materials for $89.99, excluding shipping costs.
