FootJoy’s most popular spikeless shoe both at retail and on the world’s professional Tours, the Pro/SL, has been updated. With one BOA and three laced options available in Australian golf shops beginning October 25.
Originally released two years ago, the Pro/SL has been worn for over 130 victories around the world, including by Australia’s own Cameron Smith, and is designed to deliver a combination of comfort, stability and traction, while the ‘ChromoSkin’ leather upper provides waterproof protection and an attractive appearance.
“Of all the shoes I’ve worn throughout my career, these are by far the most comfortable,” Ian Poulter said of the model he wore during Europe’s victorious Ryder Cup campaign in France. “I get great grip in wet and dry conditions, plus with the BOA system, I can dial in the fit and comfort to get exactly what I want.”
The blend of comfort, stability and traction that makes the Pro/SL popular with professionals and amateur players alike is achieved through a multi-layered midsole and outsole construction utilising the company’s ‘Fine-Tuned Foam’. Ten percent lighter than the traditional EVA foam used in the a large number of golf shoes, Fine-Tuned Foam of varying firmness is used to deliver a soft and shock absorbing base as well as perimeter stability.
To add increased traction in all conditions to the comfort offered by the Pro/SL, 223 individual points of the shoe’s sole make contact with the ground. This combination of all-day comfort and stability during the golf swing one of the main reasons a large number of the world’s best players, including Adam Scott and Louis Oosthuizen, continue to opt for the Pro/SL.
“Our players can choose from any shoe in our line, so the fact that so many continue to choose Pro/SL, on Tours all over the world and in all possible conditions, really validates the product’s performance and our extensive design and development process,” Director of Product Management FootJoy Footwear Richard Fryer said.
RRP: $249.95 (laced); $279.95 (BOA).
