In 1876, Charles A. Eaton, opened his first shoe factory in Massachusetts. It took 60 years but Eaton and his company finally ventured into the world of golf shoes where they started to shine. By the 1950s hundreds of golf pros were wearing Eaton's shoes. In 1976, they changed their name to Etonic in honor of their founder Charles Eaton. Although they still make golf shoes, today Etonic has also added fine running and walking shoes to their catalog. Many things have changed over the years, but one thing has always stayed the same: Etonic's drive to be the best.
