Duca del Cosma were established in 2003 in Germany by Antje Elle and Baldovino Mattiazzo, an Italian footwear designer. The name translates into “Duke of Cosma” and “Cosma” being a traditional Venetian name used in designer Baldovino’s family for many generations.
In 2005, they became the pioneers of the spikeless golf shoe, later introducing the Pevero, one of the first spike boots in the business. The Heritage shoe comes in either a crisp white design or a sleek black and grey version, which we received. They come in sizes 40-47 and feature soft spikes on the sole. The first thing that strikes you about the shoes is their style – they are a bold combination of traditional wingtip and brogue embossed detailing, with contrasting colours allowing them to look smart, whilst standing out from the crowd.
Looks aside, these shoes offer a great level of performance with the A6 soft spike outsole, the latest in Duca’s soft spike development, and featuring a TPU outsole with EVA wedge, fast lock system 3.0 receptacle, Pulsar Cleat FTS 3 soft spikes, all combined with the EVA midsole for lightweight, durable shock absorption. The spike placement has been thought out to make sure the optimum traction is created during downswing, while reducing uncontrolled pivoting, and the 5mm traction nubs provide added stability during the entire swing. Unlike traditional spikes, they are extra friendly to the greens.
These shoes are also fully waterproofed as well as breathable, and two sets of waxed laces are included – black and red – so you can mix up your look. The Arneflex® insole provides day long comfort whilst remaining 100% breathable, absorbent, antibacterial to prevent bad smells and has a memory foam layer covering the leather. The shock absorbing system prevents fatigue in the feet and joints, the ergonomic cut adds to the overall comfort and, for an added feel good factor, it is constructed from a recycled rubber.
The Heritage shoes are comfortable, highly stable and look great. As with all leather shoes, they take a little breaking in to begin with but it is well worth it in the long run. RRP £199.95
