Athletic shoe maker New Balance is jumping into the golf market in a big way. The company is launching New Balance Golf, a golf footwear collection from licensee Klonelab, LLC, which debuts nationwide this month.  
 
Comprised of six styles for men and women in both cleated and spikeless models, the NB Golf collection features high-quality waterproof leathers and lightweight, breathable air-mesh fabrics. 
 
The spikeless models are part of The Minimus Collection, which is built on the New Balance Minimus running last, allowing toes to splay apart for increased comfort and freedom of movement. They contain a lightweight REVlite midsole, along with a spikeless rubber outsole that provides traction while you swing and walk the course. 
 
The cleated models feature a lightweight, flexible and supportive TPU outsole for stability and balance during the load-bearing phases of the swing.  These shoes also boast the new Champ state-of-the-art One-Lok cleat system, which makes it easy to replace cleats while positioning the foot close to the ground for superior feel, traction and balance. 
 
New Balance Golf footwear will come in D, 2E and 4E widths for men and in B and D widths for women in select styles. The collection's MSRP ranges from $119.95 to $159.95, and the shoes will be available at New Balance stores, select golf shops and golf retailers and on www.newbalance.com starting this month.
