OSCAR JACOBSON UNVEILS STRIKING 2016 FOOTWEAR COLLECTION
Oscar Jacobson, the specialist Swedish apparel and golf fashion brand founded in 1903, has long been famed for its meticulous craftsmanship, enviable detail and timeless style built on a foundation of Anglo-Saxon textile heritage, Italian tailoring and Scandinavian simplicity.
Last year, Oscar Jacobson added ‘Spanish flair’ to the mix as it stepped into the world of golf footwear in partnership with renowned Spanish brand, Lottusse, who have been handcrafting exclusive and stylish footwear in Inca, Mallorca since 1877. The first fruits of this heaven-made marriage were some of most stylish and eye-catching golf shoes ever to hit the fairways.
2016’s new collection from this ‘made-for-each-other’ alliance takes things a stage further on the style front with ultra-striking colours, full-leather designs and a new Monk Strap model.
The new Oscar Jacobson footwear collection features four all-leather styles – Suede, Brogue, Monk Strap and Classic – with the Suede and Brogue styles serving up some fresh colours for spring summer. Accompanying the greens, blues and yellows are some more conservative choices too, while the novel Monk Strap and Classic saddle shoes retain a predominantly black-based colour palette.
The shoes, crafted from the finest leathers, feature the Lottusse Waterproof System technology in which the leather undergoes a special hydration treatment that makes them fully waterproof for the duration of any round of golf, allowing the leather to repel rather than absorb moisture.
These beautifully handcrafted Oscar Jacobson shoes will look and perform like nothing else on the market. Expect to see the stunning second-generation Oscar Jacobson golf footwear collection on the shelves from spring 2016, priced from £259/€350 Brogue/suede and £269/€375 classic/Monk.
