Stylish shoe company, Aureus is not new to the golf industry, having been associated since the early 80’s with such names as PGA-major winners; Larry Mize, Scott Timpson, John Mahaffey, and the legendary Raymond Floyd– both on and off the golf course. Recently, they expanded their range of casual and lifestyle footwear. Made of Genuine Nubuck Leather, Aureus features elastic laces that never need tying, which means they slip on and off with ease, and a ‘cool’ semi-transparent tread with the Aureus logo embedded in the outsole construction that is guaranteed never to separate. They are ridiculously comfortable to boot—no pun intended. $68-$80. https://www.aureus-usa.com.
