GolfWRX x TRENDYGOLF USA: The hottest trends in golf footwear today – Nostalgia

Published

on

GolfWRX is and has been the destination for golf gear for some time—that is, everything that goes in your golf bag. But in addition to our best-in-the-industry coverage of club launches and what’s being played on tour, we want to bring you more info about exciting apparel and footwear trends in general and launches in particular.

The golf apparel and footwear landscape has changed massively since we launched the GolfWRX forums in 2008—long gone are the days of tent-sized polo shirts and saddle shoes as the only shows in town. To help play our way through the current course, we’re leaning on TRENDYGOLF USA, the self-professed “institution that wants to bring the latest designs from the trendiest designers around the world to the forefront of fashion, both on and off course.”

At GolfWRX, we believe the folks at TG USA are doing just that, and we couldn’t be happier to have them helping us with yardages and putt-reading, as it were.

For the first article in our series, we’re going to take a look at the dynamic and rapidly evolving world of golf footwear. TRENDYGOLF USA classifies golf footwear informally in the “nostalgia,” “functionality,” and “hype” categories.

First up, we’re taking a look at the nostalgia-inspired footwear. At once a new category in the golf footwear realm and the longest-tenured, the “nostalgia” footlocker is stocked with everything from the classic leather styles tour pros have favored for decades to footwear inspired by the iconic sneaker models of the ’80s and ’90s.

So lace ‘em up, and let’s walk this “nostalgia” landscape together!

Nostalgia

GolfWRX Classifieds (10/29/20): PXG BlackJack, Toulon Garage, TP Mills custom

Published

At GolfWRX, we love golf equipment plain and simple.

We are a community of like-minded individuals that all experience and express our enjoyment for the game in many ways. It’s that sense of community that drives day-to-day interactions in the forums on topics that range from best driver to what marker you use to mark your ball, it even allows us to share another thing – the equipment itself.

One of the best ways to enjoy equipment is to experiment and whether you are looking to buy-sell-or trade (as the name suggests) you can find almost anything in the GolfWRX BST Forum. From one-off custom Scotty Cameron Circle T putters, to iron sets, wedges, and barely hit drivers, you can find it all in our constantly updated marketplace.

These are some of the latest cool finds from the GolfWRX BST, and if you are curious about the rules to participate in the BST Forum you can check them out here: GolfWRX BST Rules

Member CC_Stryder – Toulon Rochester

Looking for a putter that gets its names from a city in New York state with a flow neck? Well…the name might not be exactly what you are looking for, but if a flow neck is what you are after, then look no further.

To see the full listing and additional pictures check out the link here: Toulon Putter

Member StillCantPutt – PXG BlackJack Putter

The newest putter from PXG at less than new price. Don’t let the seller’s name discourage you either, this thing should help you sink more putts.

Member KC_Badger – TP Mills Custom

There is something about TP Mills putters that just screams classic, timeless, masterpiece. This example is no exception with its flow next and unique finish.
