PUMA Golf, a leader in golf style, innovation and design, has unveiled a fresh collection of lifestyle golf apparel, footwear and accessories in tandem with Los Angeles-based brand, Malbon Golf.
PUMA has continued to make a name for itself in the golf community with apparel designed to be worn on and off the course for traditionalists and the fashion conscious. Malbon Golf jumped on the scene with that same mindset and is determined to deliver unique gear to inspire a new generation of golfers. The two brands have teamed up to create a unique 8-piece collection that unexpectedly blends vintage PUMA style and authentic golf silhouettes with preppy and urban street wear styles. The result is an iconic collection delivering a fashionable edge from the links to the street.
"When the chance to work with PUMA Golf was presented to us we jumped at the opportunity. PUMA is a heritage brand yet they have been able to connect with the youth through creative product and marketing,” said Stephen Malbon, founder of Malbon Golf. “Malbon Golf was created for the new generation of golfers, paying respect to the traditions of the game but propelling it into the future.”
“The idea for this collaboration was brought to us by passionate golfers on our team who are also engrained in the fashion and skate culture,” said Grant Knudson, Head of Footwear & Accessories, PUMA Golf. “Working with Malbon and his team was a natural fit from day one – it was a true collaboration in the sense that we were able to combine a variety of concepts and ideas and let creativity run its course. Good ideas can come from anywhere and this uninhibited, outside the box approach resulted in a collection that anyone passionate about style and golf will appreciate – it’s a perfect mix where you can stand out without making a scene.”
A few of the key pieces in the PUMA Golf + Malbon collection include:
Malbon Golf Shirt – Featuring a unique floral, palm blended pattern overlaid with repeating text, an authentic PUMA slogan used on vintage products from the brand, "One Step Ahead with Puma, For Puma Does it the Quality Way." The preppy, floral button up utilizes shell buttons, subtle, tonal branding and elevated accents combined with a premium quality polyester blend fabric.
Malbon Golf Sweater – Featuring the popular Malbon “Buckets” logo, this sweater is designed with ribbed cuffs and hem for a touch of retro style and royal elegance, while ensuring optimum on-course performance thanks to a polyester blend.

Each pair will come in a special edition Suede 50th Anniversary shoe box that features the same tropical print as the sockliner.
