When FootJoy consulted their top PGA Tour players to inquire about making changes to Pro|SL, the feedback was clear.
Don’t do it, they said, but they eventually did come around to a shoe that took 18 months to develop.
“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 for FootJoy footwear.
“As a result, we’ve developed a product that delivers more stability, more traction, more comfort andmore choice, setting the standard in performance footwear, again,” he said.
The all-new Pro|SL offers more traction and stability. The all-new Infinity outsole configuration has 189 points of traction to enhance contact with the ground and provide a foundation throughout the golf swing. The unique infinity shape is used to enhance stability, with an 11.5 per cent wider heel and increased forefoot stability.
Pro|SL offers a Dual-Density (D2) Midsole that delivers both stability and cushioning. Its design utilizes two densities of FJ proprietary FineTuned Foam (FTF) – a firm FTF around the perimeter for support and control and a softer FTF under the foot for max cushioning and comfort.
With multiple layers of comfort and support, along with a soft waterproof leather and Power Harness to hug the feet with max medial/lateral control and support.
For those looking for even more comfort and stability, FootJoy has created an additional option, Pro|SL Carbon, integrating a full-length carbon fiber insert into the midsole stability and motion
Carbon fiber flexes and elastically snaps back to its molded position with each step recovering more of the energy generated while walking and for less leg and foot fatigue at the end of the round.
Pro|SL Carbon shoes provide enhanced wrap-around comfort and no-slip fit with a soft, molded collar and conforming underfoot cushioning with an OrthoLite Impressions FitBed.
“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,” said Charley Hoffman. “The comfort and stability is incredible”.
The 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.
