FootJoy x GLCO | Premiere Series
Eyewear lifestyle brand Garrett Leight California Optical (GLCO) and iconic golf shoe brand FootJoy are partnering to create a limited series of sunglasses and footwear that bridges FootJoy’s high-performance golf wear with GLCO’s easy-going Southern California lifestyle. Fronting the collaboration is a collection of classic Premiere Series golf shoes for men and women with custom tortoise accents that include FootJoy’s premium construction and high-quality materials and design. Three limited-edition styles are available including two styles in men’s, Premiere Series Tarlow and Packard, and a stunning cap toe option for women. Paired with the shoes is a unique sunglass offering from GLCO’s Spring Summer 22’ collection, Elkgrove Sun.
The GLCO x FootJoy Packard is a featherlight, understated, and technically exquisite shoe inspired by the clean lines of modernist architecture. A contemporary interpretation of the timeless saddle shoe design, and preferred by many of the world’s best golfers, the Packard features hand-selected Pittards® of England soft full-grain, waterproof leather uppers accentuated by a bold Tortoise print banded saddle. Other features include full leather linings, a suede heel pocket, plush co-branded GLCO x FJ OrthoLite® FitBed with molded heel cup and the Versatrax+ outsole for Tour-proven traction and performance.
Paired with the shoes is a unique colorway from the Spring Summer 22’ collection, Elkgrove Sun. Inspired by Garrett Leight’s favorite golf legend Chi Chi Rodriguez and his inimitable style, GLCO x FootJoy Elkgrove Sun is an easy-going sunglass that features ’60s-inspired contoured temples, deep square lens, a larger and slightly oversized frame and a distinction browline. The frame has a matching Georgia Tortoise temple with a G15 lens and gold metal plating.
“As a huge fan of the sport and FootJoy’s cutting-edge craftsmanship, this partnership was a no-brainer” says Garrett Leight. ”I’m looking forward to blending the golf world with our laid-back and classic Southern California lifestyle. Our two brands share a commitment for comfort, style, and undisputed quality.”
This limited-edition collection launches on Wednesday, April 6th and will be available while supplies last.
