Golf shoes featuring bold animal print designs that look stylish both on and off the course are proving among the most popular with women golfers buying from the latest range by Duca del Cosma, the Italian brand that has revolutionized golf fashion.

Chic styles inspired by the distinctive patterns on the majestic Giraffe and Zebra have been designed to appeal to modern women golfers wanting to project a sporty look even when they're not playing golf.

“Women golfers are increasingly looking for shoes that they can wear during a round of golf or during a lesson and then keep them on in any leisure setting,” said Steve Gray, VP Sales for Duca del Cosma in North America. “So many are turning to the more fashionable styles like the animal print models from our latest range that will never look out of place away from the fairways.”

Stunning styles such as the KUBANA (Zebra print) in silver & black, the MARQUESSA (Giraffe prints) in gold & black and the VINCI (Giraffe prints) in white & gold have been attracting more attention and sales. The recommended prices range between $219 and $229.

Crafted entirely by hand in Europe, the shoes feature large and small scale animal prints that are produced using flexible neoprene and beautifully juxtaposed on each side. A solid metallic laminate adds definition and balance to the standout design.

The premium shoes also feature advanced technology to improve performance. They incorporate a waterproof bootie system with a highly breathable membrane to keep feet dry, plus a leather-topped Arneflex® memory foam insole for extra comfort and support. The Airplay VII spikeless outsole provides excellent grip for swing stability, while each pair of shoes also comes with two sets of luxurious laces to match the animal print.

The animal print styles are part of a range that includes eight different women’s shoes that also features full grain leather and suede options, including the award-winning White FESTIVA sporty shoes showcased earlier this year in the Golf Digest Top 20 Hot List.

Founded two decades ago, the Duca del Cosma brand now sells its golf shoes in more than 30 countries around the world. To see the comprehensive and colorful US range, please visit the website at
