Would it make a difference to our game if we focused not only on what we have in our bags, but what we have on our feet?!
How often do you invest in golf shoes and are they actually worth it? I spend a lot of time researching and trialling new clubs, updating what I have in my bag and I am always on the look out for the new innovations that could improve my game, but I am guilty for focusing only on my clubs, very rarely do I focus on my feet.
Are golf shoes worth it? Can they make a difference to our game or are they something that people invest in purely to look good?
Many tour pros put as much thought into their footwear as they do the content of their bag, and since the release of the Footjoy Pro SL Golf shoes earlier this year many a pro have put their faith in these.
They are guaranteed to be 100% waterproof, provide extreme stability and lightweight comfort with the underfoot cushioning, and have versatile traction - a 3 piece outsole combining 2 blends of FTF (Fine Tuned Foam).
Not only that but they look pretty good too - they are available in 3 different colours so there is something to suit everyone and they look just as good off the course as they do on.
I have to say they are very comfortable, and the promise of providing me with better stability really has materialised - power comes from the ground, and it is not unusual to see an increase of speed at 4-5mph just by investing in a pair of Footjoy Pro SL golf shoes.
Interacting more with the ground gives you more distance too, and it can also prevent injury.
I think I’m sold - now I just need to decide which colour!
