"We are excited about breaking into the Canadian golf market with a successful partner like Golf Town,” says Footbalance Canadian Director of Sales Christopher Griffin. “Golf Town’s goal is to offer custom fit footwear as they do with their ever-popular custom club fitting, and Footbalance is a big part of this initiative.”

Footbalance custom molded footbeds help to correct misalignment in the feet and ankles which affects overall body alignment and efficiency, negatively affecting stability, stance and swing. Golf Town has partnered with Footbalance to further customize and improve their customers’ golf game.

The partnership began with a pilot program in the greater Toronto, Canada area in 2010. After initial success, Footbalance was rolled out in 2011 into Golf Town retail locations in Boston, Calgary, Edmonton, Ottawa and Montreal.
