In tribute to Arnold Palmer, Rickie Fowler will once again head to Bay Hill for the Arnold Palmer Invitational, with special plans to pay tribute to The King. Throughout the week, Rickie, along with fellow Cobra Puma golfer Bryson DeChambeau and their caddies, will sport the iconic umbrella logo on accessories, footwear and apparel, Additionally, Rickie will wear exclusive, custom PUMA Golf Hi-Tops designed to honor the life and career of a true legend.
Only two pairs of the custom Hi-Tops were created, designed and hand-crafted by Roland Padron, also known as Nomad Customs. Padron, based out of Miami, Fl., has developed custom shoes for a number of other prominent professional athletes. Rickie will wear one pair of the Hi-Tops during tournament play, and the other, personally autographed by Rickie, will be included in a giveaway that fans can enter to win (click here for details). All proceeds will go to support Arnie’s Army Charitable Foundation. Last year’s custom PUMA Hi-Tops raised $25,300 dollars in support of the Foundation.
