In an intriguing turn of events, the golf industry has been preening itself to take on a much more modern application of style. Not only have larger athletic companies like Nike, Adidas, and Under Armour helped to spurn the effort for more contemporary and youthful culture, but some of the genre’s biggest footwear proprietors have also begun to adapt their lauded silhouettes into on-pitch variants. The most recent being the RS-G, by PUMA.
PUMA’s most recent iteration is an homage to one of the company’s most bold running silhouettes, the RS-X. As such, it takes on a golf-focused designator, dropping the urban-inspired “X” for a more-fitting “G.” The RS-G isn’t just any half-baked crossover, either. It takes on an unconventional appearance, a reengineered upper, a seam-sealed microfiber leather upper, and TPU skin to protect your feet from the elements as you take on the full 18. As a result, the fully-waterproof sneaker guarantees a high-performance showing every time you take to the green, courtesy of its grippy Carbon Rubber lug outsole and cushioned Fusion Foam midsole. Head to PUMA’s website to pick up the formidable but stylish RS-G for $130.
