For FootJoy, one of their biggest selling points is boasting the widest adoption on worldwide tours. Lots of pros rely on FootJoy.
While every pro is different, they all need a shoe that is stable to not betray them on any shot and comfortable enough to not leave them dragging at the end of a round. The FootJoy Tour X is their kitchen sink, bringing in various advanced technologies and the latest materials to deliver for the best players.
The foundation of the line’s three models is stability that allows a golfer to get the most power from their footwork and, subsequently, their swing. The Tour X features the FJ PowerPlate midsole-outsole, calling it the most stable outsole they make because of its ground coverage which offers ideal stability. The FJ PowerPlate has a TPU outsole with 9 LaunchPods (spiked areas) on the perimeter of the shoe with maximum surface coverage that won’t take away from the power transfer through the swing.
The FJ PowerStrap is a molded TPU strap located in the midfoot to provide support for medial and lateral movement. The strap has PowerEyelets, allowing a golfer to pull laces as tight as they want and get the balance they want. There’s also a Boa version of this shoe.
The Tour X also delivers on comfort. The shoe has an OrthoLite Impressions FitBed, with two foams: an Open Cell PU Foam which offer cushioning and keeping form, while an Impressions Foam molds to the golfer’s feet for a custom fit. The 3D-molded foam collar and Tour-Spec stretch also help contribute to comfort.
The Tour X has a two-year waterproof guarantee thanks to a Chromoskin leather upper made by Pittards of England, for you leather aficionados.
The FootJoy Tour X golf shoe is now available for $220 in either laced or $250 in Boa versions in four colorways (White/Blue/Lime, White/Red, Black/Black/Lime, White/Silver/Red Boa).
