Handmade in Italy from premium leathers, Royal Albartross golf and lifestyle shoes are known for unsurpassed quality, attention to detail, craftsmanship, and style that will knock your socks off.

New additions for Spring ’18 have just been added to the brand’s website for pre-order.


Forato

This men’s shoe combines the appearance and comfort of a casual sneaker with elevated design details. The result is a sporty, modern shoe that can easily transition from the golf course to any pre/post round activity. Those style enhancements include orange Vibram soles, a perforated midsection upper, croco-print leather, contrast stitching and top eyelets, and leather trim.

The Forato ($299) comes in four colors – deep red, classic white, black with a red heel trim and a really nice blue called petrol. There is also a limited edition version ($315) in an alligator-print black Italian leather with gold details, which the company has called its ‘rock star’ shoe.

Nova

The retro-style sneaker ($299) was introduced last year and a new black color, with a distinctive red leather midsection wrap and bright red heel trim, has been added this spring. Look for these sporty kicks to hit the Royal Albartross site in late April/early May.

Luna

Two fabulous color combinations have joined this ladies shoe previously done in white leather with a silver toe cap and comfortable Vibram sole. A vibrant red with a burgundy toe, and a nude leather with a rose gold toe, laces and eyelets make for a truly fashionable golf shoe.

The new women’s Luna ($299) will preview on the brand’s website at the end of April/beginning of May.

Style Note

While it’s easy to get swept away with the incredible look and quality of Royal Albartross shoes, they also have all the ingredients necessary for a performance golf shoe. The Vibram soles provide high durability, comfort for walking and traction. Combinations of high-tech insoles, breathable linings and varying cleat placement on certain styles ensure cushioning and balance.
