FootJoy has taken its most popular shoe—the Pro/SL™–and made its shoe model worn by more tour players than any other more stable and comfortable with some notable improvements.
Besides additional padding in some key areas to improve comfort, Footjoy has developed an all-new Infinity outsole configuration that provides better traction and grip with 189 traction points that provide a solid foundation for the golf swing. The heel is wider than previous models by more than 11 percent and the forefoot stability has been improved to provide a solid base and keep stability with the ground to a maximum.
The Pro/SL features a Dual-Density (D2) Midsole that offers both stability and cushioning, the advanced design utilizes two densities of proprietary FineTuned Foam (FTF): a firm FTF around the perimeter for support and control, and a softer FTF under the foot for maximum cushioning and comfort.
The soft, waterproof leather feels easy on the feet while the Power Harness hugs your feet and provides outstanding medial/lateral control and support.
“As the industry leader, we didn’t tweak or adjust the new Pro | SL, we innovated and advanced and received Tour approval,” said Richard Fryer, Director of Product Management, FJ Footwear. “As a result, we’ve developed a product that delivers more stability, more traction, more comfort and more choice, setting the standard in performance footwear, again”.
In addition to the new features in the improved Pro/SL, FootJoy also introduced a complete additional option for this line with the new Pro/SL™ Carbon that integrates a full-length carbon fiber insert into the midsole of the shoe for even more stability and motion control. Carbon fiber flexes and elastically snaps back to its molded position with each step recovering more of the energy generated while walking and allowing the body to work less. This will result in less leg and foot fatigue at the end of the round noted FJ officials.
This shoe provides even more padding in a classy looking design that offers enhanced wrap-around comfort and no-slip fit with a soft, molded collar and conforming underfoot cushioning with an OrthoLite® Impressions FitBed®. All of this in a shoe that is even lighter and more comfortable featuring Chromoskin™ leather by Pittards™.
The shoe is already getting the attention of some top Tour players who are wearing it:
“I’m someone who loves to be comfortable, and the new Pro/SL is the most comfortable golf shoe I’ve ever put on my feet,” said Louis Oosthuizen.
“When I tried Carbon for the first time, I wanted to put them in play immediately,” added Charley Hoffman. “The comfort and stability are incredible”.
Footjoy is also introducing a new version of the hottest shoe in golf in the Women’s performance footwear lineup. The all-new Women’s Pro/SL has already been worn to victory on the LPGA by Sei Young Kim, winner of the 2019 CME Group Tour Championship.
All the lines of the Pro/SL come in a variety of color combinations. The Pro/SL for men comes in: White/Royal/Grey Laced; White/Charcoal/Grey Laced; White/Grey/Lime Laced; Navy/Royal/Grey Laced; Black/Charcoal/Lime Laced; Grey/White Laced and White/Grey/Charcoal BOA®.
The Pro/SL Carbon is offered in: Black/Charcoal/Grey Laced and White/Charcoal/Grey Laced. The Women’s Pro/SL is available in: White/Silver/Grey Laced; Grey/ Light Blue Laced; White/Aqua Laced and White/Silver/Rose BOA®.
