Canoos® Designs Custom Shoe for 2017 Walker Cup Team


BOSTON, Sept. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Canoos, the golf footwear innovator, announced this week that it has designed and provided custom golf shoes for Team USA in its upcoming matches for the 2017 Walker Cup.

Similar to the Ryder Cup, the Walker Cup dates back to 1922 and is a biennial competition between the 10 best amateur golfers in the U.S. versus the 10 best from Great Britain and Ireland.  This year's event is being held September 9-10 at the Los Angeles Country Club.

Will Bacas, Canoos Brand Manager, said, "We're very excited that the best amateur golfers in the country are going to be wearing Canoos. Our working relationship with the USGA has generated great exposure for our brand—first at the U.S. Senior Open in Massachusetts this past summer and now in California at the Walker Cup. The Walker Cup is one of the top spectator events in golf and we're proud to be associated with the event."

The Team USA shoes will feature the same design and patented golf spike outsole that Canoos uses for all of its canvas golf shoes. "Just like our original boat golf shoes, the canvas shoes are all about providing a functional and fun alternative for golfers to wear from the course to the 19th hole and beyond," Bacas said.

About the Walker Cup
The competition began in the wake of World War I, and came together following a series of meetings between the United States Golf Association and The Royal and Ancient Golf Club.  As part of the meetings an international   team competition was discussed, with the aim of strengthening of understanding and friendship between The R&A and the USGA. Among those attending the meetings at The R&A was George Herbert Walker, USGA president in 1920. The idea of an amateur team competition appealed to Walker and he soon presented a plan and offered to donate a trophy.  When the press dubbed the trophy the Walker Cup, the name stuck. The first Walker Cup Match was held in 1922 at the National Golf Links of America in Southampton, N.Y. Led by playing captain William C. Fownes Jr., the USA won the inaugural Match, 8-4. The USA leads the series 35-9-1.

About Canoos
