FootJoy WeatherSof Golf Glove celebrates 25 years in 2014
In 1990 FootJoy launched its first WeatherSof golf glove to a market that was – and still is – saturated with golf brands trying to stand out as different and fresh.
The beauty of the WeatherSof glove was of course its microfibre aspect, which gave golfers the look of leather but the performance of synthetic combined with high durability thanks to a leather palm patch and leather thumb. When it hit shelves, there was excitement among the golfing world, from professionals to amateurs; today FootJoy can boast 2 out of every 10 golfers prefer the WeatherSof glove.
Since the very early 90’s FootJoy has continued to evolve the WeatherSof glove by working material both on the synthetic side and on the leather side into its famous design. They are also now starting to bring colour back into the gloves, which was most prominent in 1980 with the release of StaSof. Today golfers can still pick up a colourful glove as FootJoy’s Spectrum rides high in the popularity charts.
FootJoy is a brand with great heritage and plenty of supporters willing to sing their praise on the golf course. And any brand, whether it be in sports, fashion retail or any other area where the latest and greatest style is right there waiting in the wings to take centre stage, a huge congratulations is in order to FootJoy for maintaining their high level of quality in one range of golf glove for 25 years.
Happy birthday WeatherSof Golf Glove!
