SQAIRZ Scores Its First PGA TOUR Win!


Recommended Posts

So you've probably seen this all over social media, but for SQAIRZ, Sepp Straka's win at the Honda is a certifiable big deal. Some do find it annoying when equipment companies promote the fact their players win using their gear - the worst I ever saw was a press release from a water bottle company congratulating a player who just won with their water battle in his bag. 

But that's the way of the world. And as Tim Clarke from Wilson once told us - Majors move product, but regular Tour wins validate your equipment. I'd say that's especially true for challenger brands or brands outside the norm like SQAIRZ. I've known Bob Winskowicz for two years now (he lives about 30 minutes from me), and find him to be a smart businessman and a passionate believer in his product. And the fact he's taken his company from nothing to a Tour victory in two years is something he can rightfully be proud of. 

I have a pair of the original SQAIRZ - not bad shoes at all but I found them to be on the heavy side. I bought a pair of the pink shoes for the Real Men Wear Pink promotion last fall (wife is and father was a cancer survivor, so it was a cause near and dear). Haven't had a chance to try them on the course, but that will come. They are noticeably lighter than the first edition and--- they're pink. 

I can say the wider sole had a totally different feel when you wear them. I can't put a better word on it than you feel....stable.

Anyway, here's the press release. What are your thoughts?

 

WINDHAM, NH, February 28, 2022 -- SQAIRZ, the fastest growing golf shoe company, congratulates SQAIRZ Brand Ambassador, Sepp Straka, for winning his first PGA Tour Event. The Honda Classic is the first PGA Tour Event won by an athlete wearing the new SQAIRZ golf shoes.

Straka made birdies on holes 14, 16, and 18 to shoot 66 and best Shane Lowry by a single stroke. Straka ranked first in strokes gained off-the-tee and gained nearly five shots on the field. His combined distance (310-yard average) and accuracy (a field-leading 83.9% fairways hit) led him to his inaugural PGA Tour win.

After his massive 334-yard drive on the 18th hole, the longest drive of the week, SQAIRZ served Straka well as the rain began to fall, allowing him to nail his second shot and putt to secure the birdie and the win. SQAIRZ’s traction, waterproof material, stability, and comfort all came into play during that 18th hole.

When asked about his victory, Sepp Straka responded, “I can’t believe what a difference my SQAIRZ made on the 18th hole. Even with the poor conditions I was still able to get great traction to hit that great drive and nail that six iron, setting up the winning birdie.”

After hearing Sepp’s comment, Bob Winskowicz, the Founder and CEO of SQAIRZ responded, “That’s great testament to the performance of our new Speed golf shoes and we’re so glad to have been a part of this tremendous moment. All of us at SQAIRZ would like to congratulate Sepp on his amazing come from behind victory.”

For his win, Sepp Straka took home the winner’s share of the 8-million-dollar purse, $1.44 million. Not only was this Straka’s first PGA Tour Event win, this is also the first time an Austrian has won a PGA Tour Event. Straka has moved up to 14th on the current FedExCup points list and has secured his place in the Masters Tournament in April 2022. This first PGA Tour Event won by an athlete wearing SQAIRZ golf shoes comes on the heels of John Daly and son’s Champions Tour victory at the recent PNC Championship.

Curious why you feel that way if you've never tried the shoes?  Would you be open to looking at several independent studies to investigate the science then try a pair at no cost?

No, because “Independent studies” just means, “We make-up studies to support our claims.” I love the pairs of FJ, Ecco, Puma and Adidas I have and I’m just not a fan of the square front edge of Sqairz. Thanks for the offer…

As far as the claims, are you saying that the shoes DIDN'T give Straka good traction in the rain?

Not saying anything regarding Straka… Not sure of a Pro that wears shoes that wouldn’t give them great traction in the rain. Seems like a hollow claim to me.
The claims of distance gains are the issue I have. I read through our MGS reviews of the shoes and didn’t note any of the reviewers seeing significant distance improvement just by wearing the shoes.

I think that structure of footwear is an area that is under appreciated and under published in golf.  IMO, the way a shoe is constructed can help the player get better performance.  Will SQAIRZ work for everyone?  The simple answer is no, but if the player fits the profile I think they will see better results on the course.  I liken it to a shaft; I can make almost any shaft work for me but finding the right one will help,with distance and dispersion.  Shoes are the same,  depending on how and when a player transfers weight and pushes off the ground, the shoe can help increase or optimize those forces resulting in more consistent performance.   
 

BobW, based on you response, I am guessing you are affiliated with SQAIRZ in some way and it would be appreciated if you could disclose your relationship.  I know representative of companies are allowed with some restrictions, just trying to understand who we are conversing with.

That is a big win for SQAIRZ and I will say there is nothing wrong with a brand promiting it's victory, well unless maybe it's a water bottle 🙂   But shoes by all means can and do play a big part in a players performance.   AS I have always advocated for people to not skimp on shoes.  Buy the highest quality shoe you can afford of any brand of your choices.  A $200 pair of addidas is going to benefit you a lot more than a pair $75 adidas, trust me.   It's a fact.

I have the orginal SQAIRZ shoes as well, and with the issues I faced last year, my game during recovery wasn't to where I could give anything a fair test, when it came to distance, just see my driver shootout thread and the limited run I had there.

I can say though, the many rounds I wore them, they are the most stable shoe I have ever worn, and that's not even close.  I do find them a bit on the heavy side as Barb mentioned, but during a cart round that's not a factor, it would honestly something I'd factor in if I was going to walk.

But congrats to Bob and the crew at SQAIRZ, and of course to Sepp on the win.   It was a fun finish to watch.

Bob is the owner of SQAIRZ and I just added the OEM tag to his name.   I don't think he was trying to hide anything in that way, probably just saw the thread by Barbs and wanted to jump in and address any concerens/questions that come up.   Having dealt with Bob during the member testig of last year, I can tell you he is 100% genuine and truly believes in the benefits of the shoes, and does have data to support the advertising.  

I'll let him chime in with anything else he cares to add, I know he's busy this morning but will gladly answer any questions anyone has.

This is interesting.  I've seen the commercials and am very skeptical of the claims, kind of like that green "square strike" chipper, or the Hammer X.  It really does sound like the claims are too good to be true.    Then again the idea of propelling an aircraft forward without a propeller, probably sounded crazy to everyone until the Germans developed the jet engine for their first jet planes during WW2.  Maybe I'll give them a try, if their waterproof and comfortable, that's all I really need.  If they do anything else for me, it would just be a bonus.

I have 5 pairs of SQAIRZ shoes and they are the only shoe I wear. I tried them originally as a test for another Forum and haven’t worn another shoe sense. I was a die hard Footjoy guy before. 
My first round with them I went full send and walked Torrey South. Instantly noticed how comfortable they are.  My feet didn’t hurt afterwards and that was a impressive since I normally have foot pain. 
As far as distance gains that would come from the ability to maintain traction and use ground force. I have always had a problem with my right foot slipping when hitting driver that problem has been solved with the SQAIRZ. I feel more confident in swing full out now knowing my foot won’t slip. 
The SQAIRZ are great shoes and extremely comfortable I would highly suggest trying a pair.

I am the Founder of SQAIRZ.   You are spot on regarding structure!  The golf swing creates a tremendous amount of force (pressure) and the shoe can either help you use it or lose it.   I would like to expand upon your last sentence.  How and when you transfer weight (pressure) is the key to creating distance.  It boils down to how fast you can move the pressure from the trail to the lead side.  This is what we call "breaking" (think of snapping a towel).  To get a little deeper, just because you can create a lot of pressure, doesn't necessarily mean you'll use it all ... postural control comes into play which is balance and stability, another underrated topic!  SQAIRZ has the widest base under the ball of the foot and provides discernably better balance, breaking and pressure exchange with the ground.

I was convinced Nick Faldo was "hocking" some gimmick.   I may give them a try! Your explanation has some logic to it.  I'm not really a one shoe brand kind of golfer, I've worn Nike, Adidas, Footjoy,   as long as they are waterproof and comfortable, that's all I really  need, if they helped in any other way, it would be a bonus.

They are 100% waterproof all the way to the top eyelet because we have a gusseted tongue (tongue is sewn on both sides to prevent water and debris from entering the shoes).  Because of the square toe, toes sit naturally and provides more comfort.  In addition to Faldo, Jim McLean, Rick Smith, Nick Bradley, Sepp Straka, and John Daly all wear and endorse the shoe.  We do offer a 30 day money back program.

In regard to distance, Sqairz is not the only recent entry into the golf shoe market to make distance claims, but I have seen no data from the others to back that up. It may be there; I just haven't seen it. Sqairz has the data and has shared it. From my experience, I believe it begins with traction. If I'm not mistaken, they have patented the sole design and, believe me, the traction is outstanding! I can take the wildest swings or go up and down the steepest slopes in wet and sloppy conditions and I have not slipped once with these.

How much distance increase one sees may be determined but how much help you need in your golf swing. Someone with a terrible sway, for example, will probably benefit from the stability that these shoes provide just due to the wider base the shoe is built on. A better golfer might only see very moderate increases in distance, and probably not particularly discernible on a swing-by-swing comparison, but over time.........  For example, I use data tracking tools, Game Golf previously, and now Shot Scope. Based on the data collected, since starting to wear Sqairz, the average of all my drives has increased by 7 yards. I attribute it to more consistent ball striking due to a more stable base that these shoes are giving me. Oh, and I'll be 75 in a few months.

I, too, was originally a tester on another forum and now own four (4) pair of Sqairz and have gotten rid of all my previous pairs by FJ, Adidas and New Balance. After trying out that first pair, I won't wear any other golf shoe. You can like or dislike the look of the square toe, but that wider toe box makes the shoes extremely comfortable. Another observation, the first thing I noticed when I pulled that first pair out of the box was that they are, in fact, heavier than most golf shoes, as others have noted. I, personally, attribute that to being extremely "sturdy". Based on the little wear I have seen thus far, I fully expect my Sqairz to outlast other shoes 2 or 3 to 1. Oh, another thing I noticed with each pair as they have come out of the box, there isn't a loose or puckered thread anywhere to be found. The workmanship is outstanding! Finally, I did mention sloppy conditions. These shoes are extremely waterproof. No damp socks whatsoever.

My experience with Sqairz shoes has been exceptional! Are they for everyone? No. But I say don't knock 'em until you've tried 'em.

Let me just say that I am very happy with the win by Straka, not just because he is on my golf fantasy team, but because he works really hard and have a very enjoyable game to watch.

Also I am extremely excited that this year the PGA tour is having so many first time winners, I think it definitely makes the week to week tournaments more enjoyable to watch.

As for golf shoes, I am going to be very honest, I have never even seen a Sqairz in real life, but I do see the commercials all of the time.

I have a few pairs of shoes from Adidas, Nike and FJ, and being someone with wide feet, I have a hard time finding shoes that are really comfortable, to be honest I buy shoes that are at least 1/2 size bigger than my normal size but I end up with a lot of 1 full size up to accommodate my feet width, specially with the Nike shoes.

Being a weekends golfer who really enjoy walking, I really look for shoes that fill a few boxes.

Comfort

Cost

Durability

and Looks,

I have realized that not all shoes check all of the boxes, with the comments of this tread, I realize that there are a lot opinions both ways, and maybe some of the negative ones regarding sqairz, is lack of knowledge about the shoes. With that in mind, I do appreciate @BobW taking the time to interact and answer questions here, as it is always great to hear from the OEM directly.

When I first saw the commercials for the shoes, I had the feeling that the shoe was more of a gimmick than anything, but Sepp's win as well as the list of other players wearing then, shifts that perception a little bit.

I also love the looks of the special edition shoes, Augusta you guys had last year and the and the American sole ones are really dope, I also see a lot nice designs on your website now.

I think the one question that a lot of people have is regarding the data to back up your claims, Bob, I see on your site the claims of increased distance and in one players case the drop of his/hers handicap by 7, from 18 to 11, is there a way to quantify or actual show that the distance and handicap improvements were directly related to the change of shoe?
