Footjoy Golf Shoe Review

The caption says it all, Footjoy. #1 shoe in golf. In my 10+ years of golfing adventures, I have gone through various brand of shoes and yet Footjoy remains as one of my favorite, simply because of its comfort.

I preferred walking during my round of golf, which normally last for about 4 odd hours and having a comfortable shoe with good support is most vital. The model that I recently bought and featured here is Footjoy eComfort#57856 (eComfort 57856) Taupe Smooth/ Brown Smooth Underlay/ White Smooth. The full grain leather uppers offer outstanding waterproof comfort, breathability, and durability. The availability of different width size is also a plus to me, as I have fat wide feet. The in-shoe come with super soft PU (poly urethane) linings that look and feel like leather and provide excellent fit and comfort. There is a inter changeable pad that is not listed on it website or it's manual. Green= soft and Yellow= super soft. It can be found at the bottom of the box, so please do take note before throwing out the box! The midsoles are made of EVA (ethyl vinyl acetate) which provide lightweight cushioning underfoot. EVA does not take a set, so the cushioning will remain constant for the life of the shoe. The outsole is made of DuraMax which is a proprietary rubber compound that provides turf gripping and performance and durability. The Fast Twist System (FTS) installed is the most preferred cleat insert system on the market today. One-quarter turn secures and releases the cleat for quick changing. While Pulsar cleats by Softspikes® are the #1 selling cleat in golf and the overwhelming choice of touring professionals worldwide. The Pulsar cleats feature all the same turf grip and walking comfort advantages of Black Widow plus the additions of and radiused legs for extra durability and cleat webbing for easier cleaning.

In Malaysia, the warranty is only for 6 months, which is unlilke FootJoy U.S. Warranty that warrants the golf shoe to be waterproof in normal use for one year. I wonder why the discrepency?Nevertheless it is a great comfortable shoe and why not give it a try on your next round. A happy 2 thumbs toes up from me :-)
