Duca del Cosma strikes gold in leading magazine awards

Following a record-breaking sell-in and sell-through period in the UK, Italian golf fashion brand Duca del Cosma has seen its hand-crafted leather golf shoes credited with Editor’s Choice awards from specialist press for the second year running.

The brand, which introduced the first spikeless golf shoe in 2006, has made a strong start to the year following the signing of Dutch Tour star Joost Luiten and the launch of the award-winning SS21 collection that pushes the boundaries in terms of performance and style.

Offering a classic look with a modern twist, the Men’s ELPASO shoe picked up a Golf Monthly Editor’s Choice award and was described by the editorial team as ‘one of the best golf shoes on the market this year’.

The shoe features a 100% leather upper for superior comfort, while recyclable microfibre in the sock system gives the shoe an eco-friendly update. Both the OnSteam® lining and ARNEFLEX® insert sole provide waterproofing and breathability, while the innovative Airplay XI outsole adds a striking modern look. The ELPASO is available in the stunning Navy and White colour combinations allowing golfers to perfectly compliment various outfit choices.

Popular with golfers seeking an extremely fashionable and high-performing model, the ELDORADO was selected for an Editor’s Choice award by Today’s Golfer in the ‘Spikeless Shoes’ category. Commended for its superior grip and stability, the editorial team said, ‘the traction nubs are some of the most aggressive on any shoe,’ making the fully waterproof model a suitable choice in the most demanding conditions.

The ELDORADO incorporates supremely stylish and sophisticated design features to deliver a smart look both on and off the course. The shoe is available in White, Cognac, Black or White/Blue/Cognac and can be paired with an array of outfit choices.

“To have been recognised by leading media publications with these awards for the second-year running is an amazing achievement for the brand and is testament to the quality we are able to offer across our SS21 collection this year,” said Leslie Hepsworth, Managing Director UK & Ireland. “For the editors to recognise these models in such a competitive field makes these awards even more special to the Duca del Cosma brand,” he added.

Hot off the Editor’s Choice Awards from the UK Golf Media, the brand was also recognised in the prestigious Golf Digest ‘Best of 2021’ lists for the second year in a row. America’s No.1 golf magazine credited the athletic FLYER (Navy) and ELPASO (White) in the ‘Best Men’s Shoes of 2021’ category, while the chic BELLEZZA (White) and dashing ESTI (Navy) made the shortlist in the ‘Best Women’s Golf Shoes of 2021’ listings.
