Bubba Watson loves to turn heads and he will be doing just that at the Olympic Games in Rio when sporting a patriotic pair of G/Fore high tops. 

Watson, 37, who will represent Team USA at the Olympic Games alongside compatriots Rickie Fowler, Matt Kuchar and Patrick Reed on August 11 to 14, will be wearing G/Fore shoes that are covered in stars and stripes.

G/Fore and Watson struck a partnership at The Masters in April.

The high-top shoe, which G/Fore calls the Crusader, has proved hugely popular since their introduction. Its waterproof, full-grain leather and two-part molded sole enhances flexibility and creates a lightweight, comfortable shoe.


Aside from their obvious appeal for fashion-conscious golfers, a padded interior and cotton mesh lining also helps add to the shoe's comfort and breathability.

And with the limited edition Stars & Stripes edition, there is now the added attraction of indulging in some national pride, which will surely make another appearance at the Ryder Cup at Hazeltine in late September. 

Only 250 of these particular shoes have been made and they are available for $300 at gfore.com and trendygolf.com (sizes 7 to 15, and also half sizes).
