Royal Albartross has St Andrew's Look
by Carly Frost
August 15, 2013

Royal Albartross, maker of the world's most luxurious golf shoes, has delivered a new collection for St Andrews Links in Scotland, which has just been launched at the Old Course pro shop.

St Andrews Links is hallowed ground for the golfing world, with 600 years of the game's history played out on its legendary Old Course and now the world-renowned club has adopted Royal Albartross' modern spin on a classic, with a new golf shoe collection branded especially for its pro shop.

Alex Bartholomew, designer founder at Royal Albartross, said: "We're delighted such an eminent club wants to offer their members our golf shoes. What we do combines real excellence of engineering with traditional shoe craftsmanship that appeals to lovers of quality. We wanted to make sure that St Andrews Links' wonderful history of excellence is reflected in our collection."

The collection includes two styles for men and two for women, and features a mix of traditional St Andrews colours and their chosen palette for this season's golf wear. The Royal Albartross design team worked closely with the club to get the colours and materials exactly right, reflecting that glorious history in a new shoe.

The ladies' styles have been chosen for their exquisite styling combined with the latest cleat technology. First is the Kitty Driver, a delicate vision in mint green and white - elegant both on the links and on the patio for cocktails. Second is the Fairway Belle, a lavish creation of startling fuchsia pink faux lizard and the St Andrews Links 'middrie', mauve on white. These perfectly match the ladies' tartan colour palette.

Kevin Liddle, retail manager at St Andrews Links, said: "We are pleased to be working with a company such as Royal Albatross. St Andrews Links values heritage, excellence and tradition at the heart of everything we do, including the manufacturers we work with. Royal Albatross has an excellent reputation for its unique, bespoke collections and we are delighted to be stocking this new collection, designed exclusively for the Links."

The St Andrews Links collection shows the cream of the Royal Albartross crop: luxurious and stylish design combined with pro golfer precision. Perfect shoes for a perfect game.

The St Andrews Links collection will be available from the club's Pro Shop and online at .
