It’s not often you try on a pair of golf shoes and instantly find them to your satisfaction, especially when they are 100% leather. You think of having to play about ten rounds of golf with them, digging into your ankles and toes whilst you, ‘break them in’. By which time they look considerably older than the shoes you just bought recently as they have those creases across the top of the shoe, disappointed is often the final expression.
So you could imaging our surprise when we came across Lambda Golf, a company based in Europe offering golf shoes made by hand and of course 100% leather, the shoes look beautiful on the website with a very classic yet stylish, bespoke look, considering the company was only founded in 2008, the look outweighs their relatively ‘new business’ status.
With this in mind, we were chomping at the bit for our pair of shoes to arrive, the quality of the packaging was in line with the look of the business from their website portrayal, something that is sometimes overlooked even from the biggest of brands.
Like kids at Christmas we opened the box ripped through the packaging to find these little beauties.
The first thing we noticed once we got our hands on the shoes was the softness of them, as we mentioned earlier we had the thought of hard, coarse leather but this was Italian leather, soft and yet still hard wearing. If we thought that was good then the feeling of actually putting our feet inside the shoes felt like heaven, it was more like slipping on your comfy slippers than a hard wearing pair of golf shoes.
We took them to the course, doused them in puddles, buried them in sand, as well as just the standard walk you get on a golf course and they didn’t seep in any water at all, their comfort remained intact throughout and even the grip and stability of the shoe gave us no quibbles, as we made some almighty lashes at that little round ball.
To go off on a tangent we couldn’t help but think that these shoes looked classy enough and formal enough to be worn out at a dinner for example, so that’s exactly what we did, we cleaned them up which was only a wipe down with a damp cloth, removed the spikes and shimmied on down to a formal occasion we were lucky enough to get invited to.
They say that people assume your fashion status by looking at what shoes you are wearing, this would seem to be the case on this evening as from the moment we arrived the shoes drew attention,
‘WOW, look at those Bobby Dazzler’s’.
Were amongst some of our favourite comments, we were even challenged to a dance off for the pair of shoes, unknowing to the person offering the challenge was just how good we are on the dance floor!
Needless to say that the shoes stayed in our hands and long may that continue, these shoes are made by hand, specifically designed to dazzle on your feet. They certainly do that and more!
Quite simply, these are right up our street, the best shoes we have seen, tried and used in a number of different scenario’s. If you want a casual or trainer like golf then these are not for you, however if you like the classy look and want the feeling of that uber sophistication in your life then this company and these shoes are where you need to be.
Well done Lambda Golf, keep up the good work!
