FootJoy aims for comfort and performance in an athletic look with the FJ Fury

FootJoy has rounded out its shoe offerings in the last handful of years, expanding its comfort zone of classic comfort into more athletic looks on one end and more upscale traditional looks on the other (the 1857 collection is just amazing).

Fitting in the athletic end of the spectrum is the new FJ Fury, which is a cleated shoe homing in on the intersection of fit, comfort and stability.

The FJ Fury is a lighter shoe in the spiked world, and FootJoy designed the shoe with what it's calling the TruFit system. On the inside of the shoe and running under the insole board is a softer one-piece stretchy Inner Fit sleeve to wrap the foot. On top of the full-grain leather upper is the FlexGrid MLC cage system, which offers medial and lateral stability with the foot locked in. There's a waterproof membrane coated on top of the leather, with a vented toe region. The shoes have a two-year waterproof warranty.

The FitBed has two densities of foam: an Open Cell PU foam which provides a more rigid base and an Impressions foam that molds to your foot for a custom fit.

The D3 outsole combines with the Fine Tuned Foam midsole for responsive cushioning and support. Part of the outsole package is a dubbed Flex layer of TPU for comfort while walking and crouching and doing the variety of golf movements in a round. The low-profile Pulsar cleats are highly flexible to make your feet and your greenskeeper happy.

The FootJoy FJ Fury is available Feb. 1, with four standard colorways for $190 per pair. A Boa closure system model is available for $220 in a single colorway.
