The story of Swannies all began in Northern Minnesota with a cold morning tee time, as most morning tee times are out there. Matt Stang
plays in rain or shine in his favorite footwear, sandals, so Sam Swanson
(Co-Founder) had said to him that one early morning “You’d probably
outdrive me one of these days if you had any traction”.
Little did he think that was the comment to lead them to make the Swannies Classic
Soft Spike. With an adjustable synthetic leather strap designed for
performance and comfort, slip resistant footbed and military grade soft
spikes for superior traction and a bult in speed slot designed to stay
with the foot while the soft spikes adhere to the ground it is one of
the more athletic shoes/sandals in the market by design while keeping in
mind the comfort and relaxing aspect a sandal should be. I took the
sandals to the range, chipping facility and even on the course and it
had kept up with my 117 mph driver swing and 92 mph iron swing speed.
Not ONCE did I slip out from shots. The functionality of the shoe blew
my mind and its absolutely comfortable to wear. I am by no standards or
means someone that enjoys wearing sandals/flip flops but this sandal has
completely changed my position on them now.
Not only do they make a sandal, they also have other apparel options.
Quarter zips, hoodies, polos, bucket hats, golf hats, winter hats,
shirts, backpacks and even a swannies flag! One of the bigger names that
wears Swannies is @Coach_Rusty, instagrams more famous trick shot
artist, and that kind of shows what Swannies is about. They want golf to
be comfortable, good looking and, above all else, fun! Thats a brand I
love seeing in golf and wish them the absolute best of luck with their
great products and lifestyles!
Thank you Matt Stang, Sam Swanson, Adam Iversen and all of Swannies for
the sandals and introducing me to such an awesome company in golf.
