(Redmond, Wash.) - Bite Footwear, a leader in comfortable performance shoes and sandals, introduces the first and only footwear specifically designed for outdoor enthusiasts who play disc golf. Not to be confused with traditional golf, disc golf is considered to be one of the fastest growing sports in America with approximately five million people in the United States who regularly meet up for a game.

“Our heritage and expertise in golf and outdoors really lends itself well to creating the first ever line of disc golf footwear,” explains Bite Footwear owner and founder Dale Bathum. “Disc golfers have similar needs when it comes to support, traction and comfort. We love being creative within the ‘good foot health' niche and continuing to design footwear that meets the needs of avid outdoor enthusiasts.”

Bite Footwear unveils four new styles in its disc golf shoe series:

Distance Low: Featuring a breathable mesh and synthetic nubuck upper, the Distance Low is ideal for rugged outdoor courses. The specialized Vibram outsole provides superior traction and prevents grass build-up. This shoe has a virtually indestructible TEC-TUF toe guard contoured specifically for disc golf. Available in a wheat/almond color combination. MSRP $79.99.

Distance High: For those seeking the performance of a waterproof shoe, the Distance High offers a high-top leather upper with a waterproof lining and ankle lace locking system for extra ankle support. The Vibram outsole provides excellent traction for more rugged courses. This shoe has a virtually indestructible TEC-TUF toe guard contoured specifically for disc golf. Comes with a one-year waterproof guarantee. Available in wheat/almond color combination. MSRP $89.99.

Vertigo OS High: Designed for those with foot problems or those just wanting extra comfort and support, the Vertigo OS High features Bite Footwear's Orthosport removable footbed technology. This shoe offers a breathable mesh and synthetic nubuck upper and is ideal for cement tee boxes providing better spin on the outsole. This shoe offers increased ankle support and a virtually indestructible TEC-TUF toe guard contoured specifically for disc golf. Available in black/ruby color combination. MSRP $69.99.

Vertigo OS Low: The low-top version of the Vertigo OS High, the Vertigo OS Low has the same great features as its high-top counterpart. Available in gray/charcoal color combination. MSRP $59.99.

The disc golf shoe series is expected to hit retailer locations this fall.
