FootJoy, the No.1 Shoe in Golf, has once more joined forces with Harris Tweed Hebrides “in celebration of a summer of Scottish golf”, by launching an extended limited edition footwear range.
The brand says this new range - which you can buy online HERE - celebrates hand craftsmanship, heritage and tradition.
We were big fans of last year’s Harris Tweed special edition shoe - and the 2022 edition is every bit as awesome.
The second iteration of the collaboration - ‘Shawbost’ – welcomes a unique Premiere Series Packard upper to the new limited-edition range. Introduced right before next week’s 150th Open, Harris Tweed brings a distinctly auld accent to FootJoy’s Premiere Series Packard – itself renowned for timeless design infused with innovative performance technology. The Shawbost collection, so named in tribute to the small town Hebridean location of the Harris Tweed mill where pure virgin wool is handwoven to create unique, flawless and beautiful designs, features a distinct tweed and design character, hand selected to recognise both brand’s intrinsic role in the history of the game and shared celebration of heritage.
The Premiere Series Packard Shawbost is presented within an authentic Harris Tweed shoe bag as a nod to the hand craftsmanship, design detail and dedication to the golfer that inspires the collaboration.
Governed by The Harris Tweed Act, the fabric must be handwoven in the homes of residents of the Outer Hebrides, Scotland, to be able to use the Harris Tweed name and logo. This maintains the integrity and distinctive character of the fabric which is recognised globally for its quality. Unusually, the wool is dyed before being spun, allowing a multitude of colours to be blended into the yarn, creating a cloth of great depth and complexity.
Harris Tweed cloth has been produced on the islands of Lewis, Harris, Uist and Barra for generations using truly traditional methods. Each year Harris Tweed cloth is exported to over 50 countries worldwide – with every metre handwoven on the islands and then inspected by the Harris Tweed Authority before being stamped, by hand, with the Orb Mark.
