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