Royal Albartross unveils 2020 footwear collection

11.20am 15th May 2020 - New Products

Royal Albartross new men’s footwear collection for 2020 features an expansion of its men’s leather shoe range and new canvas designs. 

The Strider (RRP $259) combines the highest quality Italian leather and suede uppers with anti-bacterial-treated canvas. The soft, natural-calf-leather lining and an air cushion sole offer multi-directional traction and heel cup support. Handmade in Portugal, it comes in tri-colour patterns:  Strider Storm (turquoise, black and cream), Strider Miami, and Strider Monochrome (black and greys). Each pair comes with two different colours of shoelaces. 

The Saxon ($299) is made of Italian textured leather and suede uppers with a soft, breathable lining. The outsole is a lightweight VIBRAM Pro with an anatomically-shaped inlay sole and lightweight cushioning foam. Handmade in Italy, the Saxon is available in three colours:  white, black, and claret (pictured above), accented with Royal Albartross’s racing stripes.   

“Both of these shoes were created from our customers feedback,” said Alex Bartholomew, Royal Albartross CEO and founder. “Comfort and cushioning are critically important in a sneaker-style shoe, but we wanted to improve the fit, making it a little narrower in the back and roomier in the toe bed so the shoes literally hug the feet. The Strider and Saxon feel great and offer incredible support during the swing, and when walking on and off the golf course.”

The 2020 men’s and women’s collections are scheduled to ship next month.  For additional information, or to place an order, visit
