Premiere Golf Shoes Inspired By Then, Supercharged For Now
Footjoy has long been the de facto brand for all golfers, trusted as it is by the professionals for an uncompromising commitment to quality, design, and a single-minded focus on golf performance.
Representing 75 years of design and know-how, The Premiere Series is a modern representation of the classic golf shoe for men and women designed in collaboration with several PGA Tour players.
There are three new upper designs, inspired by the past but made relevant for today. Influenced by the discerning taste of the modern golfer, each collection uses soft, supple premium leather uppers and ultra- lightweight materials, as well as exquisite detailing that deliver distinctly modern classic styling.
Inspired by Bill and Dick Tarlow, who bought the FootJoy business in 1957 and focused the brand primarily on golf. The Tarlow collection is a modern interpretation of the timeless cap toe design, with a natural grain leather in the vamp and the quarter, complimented by a coordinated croc print in the heel, cap toe and eyestay. The midsole is complimented by a natural leather welt and contrast stitch.
Frederick Packard, FootJoy’s founder and a shoe pioneer drove the adoption of many modern manufacturing and design innovations still employed today. The Packard collection inspired by him features exquisite detailing and a pebble grain leather in both the vamp and the quarter. The collection uses a calfskin croc print accent in the saddle area, complimented by a natural leather welt and contrast stitching.
Inspired by Perley Flint, a young Harvard graduate and avid golfer who designed FootJoy’s first golf shoe in the 1920’s, this collection is clean and refined. A smooth ChromoSkin leather is used in the upper, highlighted by a nice embossed detailing on the saddle area, a refined FJ ornament as well as a nice piping on the side. Inside the shoe, you will find premium lambskin linings and a new fitbed for exceptional comfort.
“We saw a terrific opportunity to completely reinvent the classically inspired golf shoe from the ground up. We leveraged every ounce of innovation, as well as direct input from the world’s best players, to deliver next-level performance with a distinctly modern take on classic design.”
– Chris Tobias, Vice President, FJ Footwear
While timeless in design, the Premiere Series is infused with performance innovation, led by the all-new VersaTrax+ outsole. This revolutionary anti-channeling tread pattern is engineered to provide grip for any lie or angle, providing total traction coverage, reducing any slippage.
The outsole’s multiple TPU compounds grip any surface, with the harder TPU for on-course grip and a softer TPU for traction on harder surfaces.
The Ortholite EcoPlush FitBed® delivers perimeter stability in the heel as well as super-soft and comfortable custom underfoot cushioning.
The Premiere Series is available on MyJoys, a custom program with millions of possible combinations of colors, prints, laces and more. Available in both Laced and BOA®.
