American fashion designer Todd Snyder has teamed up with FootJoy for the second time on a new golf apparel and footwear collection.
Inspired by vintage golf styles from the 1960s and ‘70s, Snyder has designed a capsule collection of polos, windbreakers, hoodies, cardigans, shorts, joggers, caps and shoes with the performance golf ootwear company.
Called the ‘Blue Collection’, key patterns for the latest FootJoy x Todd Snyder collaboration include both blue camouflage and a vintage FootJoy logo, with key fabrics including a proprietary pique and performance blend for polos and a stretch seersucker that shows up in drawstring trousers and shorts.
As for footwear, the FootJoy x Todd Snyder Premiere Series Shoe is based on the brand’s Packard and Tarlow styles, utilising advanced lightweight materials and the proprietary VersaTrax+ traction technology. The style is available in both the Tarlow style (£199.99) with brogueing on the toes and blue around the laces, and in the Packard style (£189.99) featuring a white leather upper with a blue camo pattern saddle.
According to designer Todd Snyder, both golf and FootJoy have been a part of his life for as long as he can remember. “When I was little, I caddied for my dad and my grandpa,” said Snyder. “I never had golf shoes until I was big enough to wear my dad’s, and he wore FootJoy. So I associate them with family time and comfort. I still remember how comfortable my dad’s shoes were.”
Chris Tobias, VP of FootJoy Footwear, added: “We’re very excited about the continued partnership between FootJoy and Todd Snyder. There’s a mutual admiration for authenticity, style and performance in and around the game of golf that excites everyone from new players to the world’s best golfers on tour.”
The FootJoy x Todd Snyder Blues Collection goes on sale at selected stores and online at footjoy.co.uk from May 19.
