New Balance Golf Introduces Athletic Style – 2003
New Balance Golf Introduces Minimus 1005
New Balance Golf introduces the Minimus 1005 golf shoe. The lightweight, spikeless shoe features a waterproof microfiber upper and is built on the popular New Balance Minimus running last. The Minimus 1005 is available for the holiday season for a suggested retail of $119.95.
The Minimus 1005 is built on the same New Balance Minimus running last that provides a more natural feel for the ground than a traditional golf shoe. The lightweight, athletic styling of the Minimus 1005 features a waterproof microfiber leather upper with ultralight FantomFit™ support, and a REVLite® 4mm drop* midsole for lightweight cushioning and premium responsiveness. A wider forefoot on the Miniumus 1005 allows toes to splay apart while a shallow toe depth provides better ground feel. The Ortholite® insole provides golfers cool, dry comfort and a NDurance® rubber outsole gives maximum durability in high-wear areas. The Minimus is backed by a two-year waterproof warranty.**
New Balance originally launched the Minimus golf shoe as part of its first golf footwear collection in January 2014. The Minimus was an immediate success and has built a strong following from golfers that are loyal to New Balance running shoes as well as those who are new to the brand and enjoy the Minimus’ lightweight, low-profile fit and feel.
