In October, pink signals anything related to breast cancer awareness, and regardless of the hue – whether it’s called pink, blush, salmon, fuchsia, coral, red, pastel, or flamingo – the goal is to draw special attention to the cause and raise funds to provide early detection and education.
Wearing pink golf shoes is one way to show our support. As Sqairz donates a portion of the sales of its limited edition pink shoes directly to ACS, we’ve rounded up a few more examples that help advance the awareness story.
The brand has partnered with the American Cancer Society as part of its âReal Men Wear Pinkâ campaign by launching two limited edition golf shoes for men and women with awareness ribbon.
Sqairz founder and CEO Robert Winskowicz takes October very personally.
âI lost my brother to cancer and I would do anything to prevent this from happening to another family,â he said. âWhether it’s breast cancer or whatever, it’s a disease that has affected so many people. I really understood, through my own experiences and the many other families I have met who are going through the same thing, what a devastating effect this disease has on families. We support ACS because so many millions of people have been positively affected by their great work and the golf community can do a lot to spread education, awareness and help contribute to a good cause.
This is why part of the sales of Sqairz special offers will be donated directly to ACS.
The Freedom model for women and the Speed ââmodel for men are both designed with technology to increase distance, balance, stability and speed. These shoes provide a great opportunity for golfers to raise money for a good cause while improving their golf game.
The Gallivanter point-toe shoe for women is as stylish as it is comfortable. Pink details on spectator toes and heels, in addition to pops of blush on the sole of the shoe, show your support for breast cancer awareness throughout the year.
The triple-density foam footbed and fully padded interior require no break-in time, and the shoe is designed to allow airflow to your feet for superior comfort.
The Pose Women’s Golf Shoe in Pink and Navy, with gold eyelets and laces, will make a statement on and off the course. But don’t be fooled by its beauty, the Pose is packed with performance features like being waterproof, breathable, and antibacterial.
The leather-upped memory foam sockliner provides comfort and support, while the Airplay VI outsole maintains good traction on all surfaces.
The Club Croco Pink Shoe for Men combines traditional craftsmanship with contemporary styling to suit activities on and off the golf course. The tone-on-tone pink shoe is a bit lighter than its counterparts and that improves all-day comfort.
There is a soft and breathable leather lining, Vibram Pro golf performance outsole and since this is a limited edition the shoe features its unique production number in gold embossing.
The Flex XP Women’s Shoe in Mauve Pink has an athletic style with a waterproof performance mesh that provides lightweight comfort and breathability all day long. The outsole is designed for exceptional traction and stability.
The Performa Sport shape offers a rounded toe character – a fuller fit on the forefoot, ideal if you have a slightly wider foot, and a tight fit at the heel with an added toe spring.
The EQT spikeless golf shoe with garish pink stripes and nubby detailing on a cool gray upper gives a subtle nod to the October cause. A highlight is that 20 percent of the materials used in the upper of this shoe are made with a minimum of 50 percent recycled content as part of Adidas’ ambition to end plastic waste.
The EQT combines the bouncy midsole and boost heel for a lightweight, responsive feel that ensures comfort and an easy transition from final putt to run after run.
