By | News, Press | No Comments

Details make the difference. And it is exactly this attention to detail which makes the Duca del Cosma golf shoe collection so special, so extraordinary. Combined with excellent design and outstanding functional qualities it results in a product with comfort and looks to satisfy the most demanding customers. This is also true for our new 2017 spring/summer collection.

With its iconic combination of innovation and tradition, Duca del Cosma once again brings modern design and finest craftsmanship to the new 2017 spring/summer collection. Function, comfort and exquisite design come together in perfect harmony, making Duca del Cosma truly different from many other brands. The Italian influence is immediately recognisable. The subtle choice of materials and colours proves that we are also experts in fashion.

In creating our new spring/summer collection 2017, our head of design Baldovino Mattiazzo has let himself be inspired by the beauty of nature using a bright, fresh range of colours. Trendy white stylishly combines with seductively shimmering metallic shades and expressive colours. Strong contrasts and enticing matt-glossy effects provide a special touch. Surprising details, such as coloured shoe laces and soles break up the characteristic pure lines of the classic Duca del Cosma design. Surprising details, such as the striking brand logo, Lyra perforations and inserts with a metallic sheen bring a touch of glamour to the golf course.

Of course, only excellent functionality makes a really good golf shoe. Beautifully soft leathers, refined lasts and highly flexible soles provide an extraordinary, comfortable walking experience, right from the very first step. Continuous research and the use of the most advanced technologies ensure a maximum of comfort. Above all, those in the know appreciate the ultra-lightweight, highly flexible Skyflex sole. 383 rectangular nubs provide 3,064 traction points for optimal grip throughout the swing movement. The highly functional “Waterproof Bootie Technology” guarantees to keep your feet warm and dry in high winds and bad weather.

Duca Del Cosma makes comeback

By | Press | No Comments

The originally German golf brand Duca Del Cosma, created in 2004 by Baldovino Mattiazzo and Antje Elle, has recently been acquired by the Dutch shoe giant Frank van Wezel, owner of sport shoe brands HI-TEC, Magnum, INTERCEPTOR and 50 PEAKS.

Duca Del Cosma ran into financial trouble in 2015. Van Wezel, who has sold many golf shoes in England and USA with his own brand HI-TEC, recognized a strong global interest in the Duca brand and decided to act quickly by acquiring Duca Del Cosma. Duca has been granted its own identity in their new global headquarters in Vreeland – The Netherlands, separated from the international headquarters of Hi-Tec in Amsterdam.

“We are only 15 minutes away from Schiphol Airport, 10 minutes from Amsterdam and moreover, I can be on my local golf course within 5 minutes; perfect!’’ says Van Wezel.

The new team is being led by Carlo Verbraak (former Protest and Claudia Sträter) as CEO and Rosa Di Lisa as Operations & Communications Manager. The full team now consists of ten people, including the original creator of the brand, Mattiazzo, responsible for the design, and brand manager Antje Elle. Van Wezel is convinced that it is important to safeguard the unique DNA of Duca Del Cosma.

The new Autumn/Winter 2016 collection is already in stock and samples for Spring/Summer 2017 are with the representatives as we speak. At present the team concentrates on footwear – “Apparel will come later,” and the intention is to develop Duca Del Cosma lifestyle in the very near future to enhance the brands visibility globally.

Van Wezel now has 43 years of experience in the sporting goods industry with brand distribution in 85 countries with an annual turnover of 250 million dollars. “This new challenge gives me a lot of energy,” says the entrepreneur, “I have admired this brand for many years and feel in Duca the refined culture and Italian design which enables me to serve a new target audience in the higher end of the market.”
