One of my favorite golf companies is Kikkor Golf. Lets face the facts. Kikkor started the skate style golf shoe fad and the big companies have been copying Kikkor ever since. Over the years I’ve built up a good friendship with Kikkor founder James Lepp. You may recognize him from his runner-up finish on Big Break Greenbrier or perhaps his amazing college golf career at Washington where he won the NCAA Individual Championship.
This video below is 1 of 3 Kikkor clips from the 2013 PGA Merchandise Show. We talk about Kikkor’s footwear, but I also pick James’s brain a bit about the “process” of creating his products and what it takes to get them to retail. Interesting stuff.
