Young entrepreneurs returned from their European travel trek with a fashionable new Mission. They loved the belts they discovered there, thinking they were a novelty with no holes and wanted to introduce them to the United States. The engineering was already done for them and they developed the business concept but lacked funding so like any smart business people with an idea to launch these days, they thought of the Shark Tank. They presented to Mark Cuban and the rest of the reality TV show panel and won a partnership that has propelled Mission Belt in the golf market. They introduced the line at the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando in January with rousing success.
They have a unique philosophy – “ We wear belts everyday and yet they still remain an afterthought lost in the world of accessories. Mission Belt Co is concerned solely about belts. Not only do the belts look great, fit perfect, but on top of everything, when you buy a Mission Belt you are also becoming a part of a great philanthropic effort or as we like to call it, “The Mission.” Here at Mission Belt Co, we don¹t just want our customers to look good – we want them to feel good too. That¹s why a dollar from every belt sold goes to fight global hunger and poverty. To date, over 14,000 Kiva (peer-to-peer micro lending) micro-loans have been funded from the sales of Mission Belts.”
They have philanthropy, quality and a sense of humor covered. The leather is guaranteed crack free and as they say, “if you wear a Mission Belt you won’t show your crack. Say goodbye to accidental moons.”
Belts fit perfectly adjusting every 1/4″ unlike traditional belts that only have holes every 1”. The clip mechanism makes them easy on and off to zip through airport security or speed up pace of play on the course.
Mission Belts come in two widths – 35mm or 40 mm and several collections of buckles – solid, gold, alloy, metals or 3bar. They are licensed by the NBA, NCAA, NHL to display sports logos on buckles with matching bright team colors in green, yellow, orange, purple and red for the strap.
Straps and buckles are all interchangeable for mix and match by mood or outfit. Check them out at www.missionbelt.com.
