The parched desert of the Middle East may seem to be the natural habitat of these camel leather hybrids but they’ll keep your feet cushioned and comfortable wherever your next golf sojourn takes you.  Buttery soft, yet extremely durable and strong, with ten times more fiber per square centimeter than cowhide, camel leather is a top of the hump hide.

The molded traction nubbins strewn on the outsole provide superb grip for surefooted swinging and also perform quite admirably in post-game strolling situations.  If you haven’t tried on the Danish brand’s hybrids since Freddie Couples wore them sockless at the 2010 Masters and ignited the spikeless mania that remains with us today, you’ll find the latest incarnations trotted out by the global shoe giant are lighter and feel much more flexible. The sumptuous leather laces on the EVO One Kara’s tie on yet another luxurious layer and they especially pop on the marine/royal colorway pictured above.
