FootJoy Athletics Golf Shoes

By Jim Anderson

Long gone are the days when golf shoes were available in only a few selected styles. FootJoy Athletics Golf Shoes, for example, are a lot different from footwear you'd normally associate with old-school golf. They have a more athletic look and feel and are casual and more comfortable.


FootJoy's Athletics shoes also feature a sporty appeal. With the exception of the soft spikes, they resemble athletic shoes you'd wear away from the course, perhaps while jogging, riding a bike or playing tennis.

This FootJoy product is known for its waterproof comfort, breathability and durability. These shoes hold up well in wet conditions and come with a one-year waterproof warranty.


A rubber outsole ensures durability and flexibility while providing solid turf-gripping. The underfoot cushioning adds a soft and comfortable feel. The soft-spike cleats provide good traction on the greens.

Another useful feature is the full-grain leather upper, which provide breathability, support and comfort. The mesh uppers and a ProofGuard membrane help to guarantee waterproof protection.


You will enjoy the lightweight underfoot comfort, especially if you like to walk 18 holes instead of riding a cart. Thus, these shoes are good not just for golf but also for exercise during your round.

The Pulsar Cleats by Softspikes help ensure proper traction throughout your swing as well as stability and support during your entire round.


Due to their comfort, the FootJoy Athletics Golf Shoes are also a smart shoe choice for golfers who have foot problems, such as flat feet.

As always when buying shoes, be confident that you're selecting the right shoe size and width, especially when ordering online. A local pro shop or sporting goods store is a good place to start your FootJoy shoe shopping.
