FootJoy – Evolution of Stratos headlines the FJ’s Autumn-Winter 2022 footwear collection
December 14, 2022 – First introduced last Autumn, FJ Stratos brought game-changing, cloud-like comfort, debuting StratoFoam underfoot cushioning, to the brand’s leading range.
The new and improved model, available in men’s and women’s, builds on its comfort DNA with an all-new sculptured heel piece and moulded heel inside to exaggerate the in-shoe comfort and curate a more athletic look.
The shoe’s exterior construction features soft, luxurious leather uppers for a super premium feel combined with the VersaTrax+ outsole for the ultimate in on-course traction and off-course versatility.
The StratoFoam midsole, which offers energy return as well as soft underfoot cushioning, affirms Stratos as the go-to comfort shoe in the range.
The Flex franchise welcomes an all-new Flex XP which presents the perfect upgrade for the increasing number of golfers looking for athletic styling, breathability, traction and waterproof protection in their performance footwear.
The Flex XP receives a full facelift, with an engineered mesh upper elevating its breathability without compromising the waterproof protection. A flared heel piece, featuring a TPU section, elevates the shoe’s athletic look and structure, and a returning VersaTrax outsole gives golfers the practicality of on and off course versatility.
Building on the legendary Contour franchise, the Contour Jogger adds an all-new yet retro look and feel to FJ’s casual range. The Contour Jogger’s water-resistant suede upper allows golfers to enjoy time on the course while looking the part around and even away from the golf club.
Uniquely, the VersaTrax-inspired outsole uses recycled rubber to add a sustainability element while delivering a secure grip for golfers on and off the course.
Created specifically for the female golfer, FJ LINKS offers a casual trainer-style which builds on popular lifestyle fashion trends. Featuring luxurious leather uppers in a classic ‘pump’ aesthetic, FJ LINKS adds unmatched versatility to FJ’s female footwear offering.
The FJ FUEL has made huge strides since its introduction in January, establishing itself as one of the most popular spikeless shoes available. Previously offered in largely white based colourways, a new black option will be available to golfers, offering a darker option to thrive in the later year golf conditions.
“The new additions to our footwear range deliver a lot to be excited about, with upgraded designs of popular models in the Stratos and Flex XP providing golfers with ultimate comfort options depending on their tastes.”
“While new introductions in our casual silo for men and women with the Contour Jogger and FJ LINKS respectively, highlight the blurring of lifestyle trends into the sport and our ability to be proactive to fulfil every golfer’s style and performance needs,” says Guy Smith, FJ Product Manager, FootWear EMEA.
