Personally I love my True Linkswear shoes, but my sons all wear Footjoys. They refer to my TRUE’s as my clown shoes. They are only fooling themselves, any pair of TRUE’s are among the most comfortable golf shoes on the planet. FACT.
Anyway, here are a few different models of FJ’s.
The MyJoys are a great innovation from FootJoy. You can now customize your golf shoes to the n-th degree. Want purple laces with a lime green tongue, and yellow stitching. Sure, here you go. It might not end up pretty, but if you want it, you can get it. You can even add custom logos to the shoes, a great option for high school and varsity teams. Or have your father’s initials embroidered on the heel for that special touch.
The FJ Icon shoe is the top of the range product from this highly regarded manufacturer. This model is worn by some of the leading players in the game, players that demand the utmost performance from their shoe. Coupled with quality and style, this is one of the best performing shoes on the market.
This shoe comes with a outsole that has more features than my plasma tv. And I am not joking. I don’t understand half of it, but it sounds impressive! The white coats over at FJ has gone all out on their research, and they have combined all the research into this beautiful shoe. The Sports are lightweight, and much more stable than some of the other shoes in their range. The look is typically aimed at the younger market, but I reckon I would look very good in these.
These are a very modern shoe, with incredible breathability (yes, that is a word, I checked!). The waterproofing on these is out of this world. You can pretty much go scuba diving with these without getting your feet weet. The sole comes with optiflex technology which will help your turn through the swing, giving you increased stability, and amazing comfort. FJ also claim that this shoe also provides the best motion control of their range.
These are aimed at the more athletic, younger golfers with a look and feel to match their vibrant style. This modern and sport look will appeal to more casual golfers, who still value comfort. These are similar to lower profile off-course shoes, and these have incredible cushioning and superb comfort.
These are the lightest shoes in the FJ stable, and provide the golfer with extra stability. These are suitable for play all season, from the wet and cold November months, to the hot and humid July months. These are arguably the best value for your money in the whole FJ suite of footwear. These can be worn by golfers of any size, age and handicap. A very nice shoe at a great price.
Footjoy GreenJoy Shoes
The Greenjoys are another lightweight offering. On a sidenote, have you seen any shoe manufacturers offering a heavyweight offering?
These shoes come with synthetic uppers, but they are very soft, and require little maintenance. The waterproofing is much better than most manufacturers, and these value for money models will offer good comfort, nice styling and a solid fit.
This series is the most comfortable in the whole FJ range. And that says a lot, believe me! Flexibility is great, and the construction makes use of slip last technology. These are the closest you will come to wearing slippers on the course, according to the sales material. Well, I challenge that copywriter to a round of golf in my tried and test TRUE’s.
DryJoy Golf Shoes
The DryJoys have been with us for more than 20 years, and have seen many a major win, and will most likely continue to do so. These have been the number 1 selling golf shoe for nearly two decades, and that is no mean feat. This shoe offers great performance in any weather imaginable. These form the standard by which waterproofing in golf shoes are measured.
The Reelfit shoes are for those of us who can’t be bothered fastening our laces, and those that might have expanding feet. These shoes make use of BOA laces, and this system makes for easy adjustment at any time during your round.
These are the Rolls Royce’s in the FJ line-up. A softer leather upper you will be hard pressed to find. Coupled with a 1 year guarantee on the waterproofing, and you will not look back after your purchase.
The Classics have sadly been discontinued, but these will be remembered in golfing folkore. This style of shoe has been disappearing around the whole golfing world, and surely some of the older hands will rue this time. These shoes were hand crafted, and were the very echelon of golf shoes.
That brings to an end this round-up of the FJ models of golf shoes. If I missed out on any models, please let me know in the comments.
