During the week of the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill in March 2020, PUMA Golf and Rickie Fowler will partner up with Arnie's Army to pay tribute to "The King" in the most special way possible.
In similar fashion to previous years, Rickie Fowler will celebrate the life and career of Arnold Palmer through wearing a unique pair of golf shoes which have been custom designed for the occasion.What's more, Rickie Fowler & PUMA Golf fans worldwide will be able to purchase their very own pair of the same Rickie Fowler Arnold Palmer golf shoes online at Golfposer this season.
It's a little known fact that Arnold Palmer was a certified pilot. The colours and design of this PUMA Golf shoe are inspired by Mr. Palmer's favourite plane to fly - the Cessna Citation X. Flying was one of his favourite hobbies and some of his happiest moments took place in the air.
These golf shoes have been designed using inspiration from Arnie's favourite aeroplane with highlights including the little window panes just above the formstripe and the plane's registration N1AP printed on the instep. More design features include the famous Umbrella logo on the tongue, while tonal umbrella logos are also printed inside the shoe.
The base silhouette used, the PUMA Ignite Pro Adapt, is packed full with technology for the ultimate comfort and performance - tour approved by Rickie Fowler himself. To find out everything you need to know about this new PUMA silhouette, please click here to read our in-depth eMAG article.

Speaking ahead of today's announcement, Grant Knudson (Global Head of Product @ PUMA Golf), said: “Mr. Palmer’s impact on golf transcends generations. Players like Rickie Fowler respect and admire the life he lived and his contributions to the game. We are once again honored to align the PUMA brand with the Arnold & Winnie Palmer Foundation, helping to raise funds and awareness for causes that were so close to Mr. & Mrs. Palmer’s hearts.”
Speaking in 2017, Rickie said: "I feel privileged to have known Arnie and be able to call him a friend. I wanted to do something to celebrate what he did on the course and more importantly how he used his platform to benefit others through his Foundation! He is the King after all!!"
Very touching, to say the least.
