FootJoy are introducing a new version of the hottest shoe in golf, the FootJoy Pro SL.
Currently the market-leading model across the UK & Ireland and on the majority of worldwide professional Tours, FootJoy Pro SL combines a soft, comfortable, waterproof leather upper with a midsole/outsole system that features three distinct layers for comfort, stability and traction in all conditions. Chosen by more of the Top 100 ranked players in the world than any other shoe, Pro SL has been worn to victory more than 130 times since its launch 2 years ago.
Richard Fryer, Director of Product Management, FJ Footwear, said:
“Our players can choose from any shoe in our line, so the fact that so many continue to choose FootJoy Pro SL, on Tours all over the world and in all possible conditions, really validates the product’s performance and our extensive design and development process.”
Tour Player Adoption of the FootJoy Pro SL
Since its inception, hundreds of Tour players around the globe have opted for the comfort and spikeless performance of FootJoy Pro SL to compete at the highest level, including Adam Scott, Louis Oosthuizen, Ian Poulter, Kevin Na, Charley Hoffman, Peter Uihlein, Patrick Cantlay, Cameron Smith and Andrew “Beef” Johnston among many others.
“Of all the shoes I’ve worn throughout my career, these are by far the most comfortable,” said Ian Poulter who wore a custom pair of shoes through Europe’s recent Ryder Cup victory in Paris. “I get great grip in wet and dry conditions, plus with the BOA® system, I can dial in the fit and comfort to get exactly what I want.”
FootJoy Pro SL’s advanced midsole/outsole design provides an unrivalled combination of comfort and Tour- calibre performance. Its multi-layer construction utilises Fine-Tuned FoamTM (FTF) which is 10% lighter than the conventional EVA foam used in most golf footwear, and each layer is engineered to deliver discrete performance benefits:
The top FTF layer cradles the foot in a soft foam insert for tremendous underfoot cushioning
The lower/outer layer is a firmer blend of FTF that provides perimeter stability and motion control
223 individual points of ground contact provide Tour-proven traction in all weather and course conditions
Two styles will launch on the 15th of November, with three additional colour combinations available from the 15th of January, 2019 - Watch this space!
