The new PureTouch glove will be available in a limited number of golf shops beginning May 15 due to its exclusive leather specifications and strict manufacturing process, according to FootJoy.
“Every aspect of this glove, from the leather that’s selected to the extensive manufacturing process, has been scrutinized to ensure it is the finest, most luxurious glove on the market,” said Maria Bonzagni, director of golf glove marketing for FootJoy.
The Cabretta leather in the PureTouch offers a soft feel that is enhanced by its preparation techniques, while performations on the fingers have been removed to eliminate any disruptions between the player and golf club.
The back of the hand was designed to deliver a contoured fit with a tailored cut and targeted elastic placement.
Each PureTouch glove is hand-inspected before packaging, which allows consumers to experience the feel of the glove from the outside of the package.
PureTouch will also have a tour presence through its use by players such as three-time major champion Padraig Harrington.
“The quality was excellent, it was a precision fit and it felt very soft and luxurious,” said Harrington. “I’ve been wearing it for several months now and just love the fit and soft feel.”
