Oakley Creates Its Own Sector

As far as folks at Oakley see it, they have had the performance-footwear category well covered
the with their Carbon Pro and Cipher offerings. And with the recent introduction of the Sector, they now have a formidable entry in the so-called hybrid arena, where shoes need to perform on and off the course.
Sector is the first release of Oakley’s Course Cruiser collections, and that model comes in five colors: black, white, gray, blue and green.
According to Dave Ortley, the company’s global director of footwear and accessories, the lightweight upper of this shoe is made of a durable, microfiber material that breathes well and looks and performs like genuine leather.
While it is not fully waterproof, he says, it repels moisture well and keeps golfers’ feet dry even when the fairways and greens are dewy, or rain is falling. In addition, the Sector boasts an integrated microspike sole that Ortley says provides equal portions of comfort and stability.
