The U.S. Ryder Cup Team will be treated to some killer footwear, courtesy of Italian shoe brand Del Toro, the American team’s official shoe partner.

Del Toro’s artisans cut, sculpt and hand-paint each pair of the brand’s shoes, and this year’s players will enjoy three envy-inducing pairs.

Next, players will sport a luxurious black velvet slipper to wear to the welcome dinner. Custom details include the U.S. Ryder Cup Team logo emblazoned on the bottom of the shoe, the trophy embroidered on the outer heel and the player’s initials on the inner heel.
