FootJoy – Taking performance spikeless to new heights with new Pro|SL range
February 18, 2022 – FootJoy, the #1 Shoe in Golf, revolutionised performance in spikeless golf footwear through the introduction of the Pro|SL and continues this trend of setting a new standard again with this year’s offering.
The new Pro|SL range introduces an all-new midsole technology and a refined, streamlined new upper pattern to take the shoe to the next-level and deliver the best performance spikeless shoe in golf.
Pro|SL + StratoFoam
Building on the Pro|SL’s dedication to Tour-proven performance, and inspired from its success within the Stratos and HyperFlex, a StratoFoam midsole has been introduced across the Pro|SL range, to take the shoe’s comfort to new heights.
The propriety compound provides a softer heel-toe cushioning and greater energy return allowing golfers to step up and perform again and again.
Framed by the all-new, ultra clean upper, the Pro|SL Carbon leads the upgraded Men’s range with FJ’s most technologically-advanced, performance spikeless golf shoe.
Accompanying the new StratoFoam midsole technology, the enhanced, moulded Carbon fibre insert reinforces lateral stability in the heel whilst ensuring uncompromised forefoot flexibility. The Pro|SL Carbon uses the flex of the carbon fibre inlay to elastically snap back to its natural position resulting in more energy return while walking and reducing foot fatigue at the end of the round.
“I’ve always loved the Pro|SL because it’s so comfortable and looks great. The new Pro|SL is a 10/10 the new Pro|SL Carbon is an 11/10”, says Francesco Laporta.
“I choose to wear Pro|SL because it’s very comfortable but still gives me the stability in need in my swing. I’m especially loving the new Pro|SL Carbon as they look really smart and give me a little bit of added comfort around the heel,” says Antoine Rozner.
Following its launch in 2017, the SuperLites XP have been a celebrated performance option supporting the Pro|SL since their arrival and the latest range welcomes a refreshed design for the season ahead.
The shoe offers a clean, modern look with easy to clean, waterproof synthetic uppers whilst the underfoot combination of the EVA midsole and Infinity outsole, as seen on the Pro|SL, ensures Tour-proven traction in all weather conditions with impressive all-day comfort for the golfer.
A BOA option of the shoe will also be available for the first time, taking the shoe’s comfort and performance to the next level in 2022.
“We look forward to celebrating an icon in the Pro|SL this year, as an unrivalled offering within the performance spikeless space. Leveraging the success of our StratoFoam technology, added to the enhancements in our Carbon technology, has enabled the shoe to operate at a whole new level, and that’s so exciting for us.
“On Tour we continue to see the strength of the shoe, and we’ve continued to surprise Tour Players with our ability to raise the bar again with new iterations since its launch. This year is certainly no different,” says Guy Smith, product manager of FJ Footwear.
