Footjoy, which has enjoyed tremendous success with its FJ FLEX line of golf shoes, has introduced a newer version of this versatile shoe with a new look and new features to enhance its versatility. At the same time, FJ has also rolled out a new high-performance shoe called the Tour X™ that will appeal to those players looking for the highest degree of traction and performance on the golf course.
The new FJ FLEX XP adds features such as waterproof protection and a new athletic styling that makes this even more of a cross-over shoe than ever with a spikeless sole that offers great traction–yet with the new ribbed upper design utilizing mesh that is both lightweight and stylish enough to wear out in the evening. The original FLEX might have been one of the most comfortable golf shoes ever produced, and the XP version is just as comfortable and even more stylish.
“Offering an adjacent waterproof category was a critical addition to the FLEX family, with further enhancements to improve the overall design,” said Richard Fryer, Director of Product Development, Footwear for Footjoy. “This product will excite FJ FLEX wearers and those looking for unrivaled versatility on any surface and in all weather conditions. With the momentum that we have riding the incredible success of FJ FLEX, it’s really exciting to see what we can do with this footwear franchise”
FLEX XP offers all-day comfort with a high-density EVA fitbed and bootie-fit construction that provides a sock-like fit. The sporty styling combines with a waterproof membrane and proprietary Versa-Trax spikeless outsole that has multiple traction zones to maximize golf performance in all conditions and produce exceptional multi-surface grip.
The FLEX XP comes in four colors: Black, Grey, White and Blue–all laced shoes.
The all-new Tour X™ is an advanced shoe with all the latest materials and technology for those looking for a shoe that provides the best traction and support. It has been validated at the highest levels of professional golf—and it is no wonder—this is a very comfortable cleated shoe that supports faster swings—yet is very light and comfortable to walk in.
“This is a powerful shoe with a strong, stable foundation that allows me to max out my swing speed while staying locked to the ground,” noted tour professional Kevin Kisner.
“This gives me everything I want – athletic style, incredible comfort and the stability I need in my footwear,” added Rafa Cabrera Bello, another Tour player who wears this shoe.
Utilizing some new FJ features and materials, Tour X works to redirect and funnel power by ensuring balance and a stable foundation throughout the golf swing. It was developed from the synthesis of three tour-proven models to provide players maximum performance: Max Stability, Max Control and Max Comfort.
A stylish shoe that comes in four color schemes, the Tour X’s stability comes from the FJ PowerPlate outsole– the most stable outsole in FJ’s range– providing maximum ground coverage and stability which allows players to transfer power efficiently throughout the golf swing. This PowerPlate midsole/outsole system features a full TPU layer with 9 LaunchPods that
provide unrivaled stability and increased surface area coverage.
The FJ PowerStrap™ system delivers medial and lateral support to provide exceptional midfoot control, while the molded TPU strap works with reinforced PowerEyelets, allowing you to pull tight and lock down to maintain a stable, balanced foundation.
The comfort foam insoles offer technologies that wrap your foot in cushioning and control. Inside the shoe is an OrthoLite® Impressions FitBed®, comprised of two densities of foam – an Open Cell PU Foam that maintains its mechanical properties and cushion throughout its life cycle, and an
Impressions Foam that takes an impression of your foot, creating a custom fit.
For added comfort and breathability, Tour X features a 3D Molded Collar and Tour-Spec Stretch Tongue, ensuring maximum in-shoe comfort and support.
Tour X is fully waterproof, using a Chromoskin™ leather by Pittards® of England that provides a super soft, supple feel. The shoe comes with a two-year waterproof warranty.
Tour X comes in three laced colorways: White/Blue/Lime; White/Red and
Black/Black/Lime. The BOA® version with the twist adjustment comes in White/Silver/Red.
