There are some iconic names in golf: Titleist, Wilson, and Ping, to name a few. But perhaps none are so closely associated with golf than FootJoy -- makers of golf shoes, gloves, rain gear, hats, socks, and more. If you've ever watched a golf tournament on television ...
Footjoy Golf Shoes, Gloves | Men's and Womens
FootJoy has been in the golf business for decades and in the shoe business for hundreds of years. The company originated as Burt and Packard Shoe Company back in 1857. This company shortly became Field and Flint, through which the first pair of FootJoy golf shoes was manufactured. Their popularity rose quickly once legendary golfer Walter Hagen and his team made FootJoys their official shoes during the 1927 American Ryder Cup. It took about 40 more years for Field & Flint to change their name again, this time officially to FootJoy.
This long-standing traditional golf manufacturer is actually owned by the Acushnet Company, which also headquarters two other popular and respected golf brands: Titleist and Cobra.
FootJoy Men’s Golf Shoes
Even though FootJoy isn’t limited to just shoes, these shoes are what the company is best known for. Models such as DryJoys, Icon, GreenJoys, and Syner-G are among FootJoy’s best-sellers. Shoes come in spiked or spike-less varieties, are suited for all weather conditions, and prize comfort over all else. They can also be custom-ordered with special colors and patterns through the MyJoys online customization tool.
The Icon line is all about traditional, classy looks, made with full-grain leather that also boasts a 2-year waterproof warranty. DryJoys target golfers that favor comfort over a luxurious appearance, although the shoe’s soft Pittards leather, cushioned insole, and fully waterproof exterior beg to differ. And the Syner-G shoe puts these common features into a stable, ultra-supported sports fit, complete with Stinger cleats.
One small drawback about these FootJoy shoes is that they may not last as long as other brands of shoes, given that the leather is so soft already. If taken care of properly, the shoes should last for quite a while, but for those who like to play rough, it’d be best to break in a pair of more durable shoes, like these ones from Adidas.
FootJoy Women’s Golf Shoes
FootJoy also makes a few of these models in women’s sizes: DryJoys, GreenJoys, the LoPro collection, and the Summer series. GreenJoys are the company’s “entry-level” shoe. These are less expensive and are made from water-resistant PVC instead of real leather to save on cost, but the insoles are still just as comfortably cushioned. Lady golfers looking for the classy equivalent of the men’s Icon line will find what they are looking for in the LoPro collection. And the Summer line is the sportiest of the bunch, melding features of a walking sneaker into a waterproof white leather golf shoe. FJ Summer shoes also come with the #1 best-selling cleats on the market, Pulsar by Softspikes.
FootJoy Gloves and Accessories
The lineup of shoes is impressive, but FootJoy is also well-known for making extremely soft leather golf gloves as well, like the StaSof gloves. These are made from soft cabretta white leather from Pittards of England and are similar to a wearing a super-soft pair of driving gloves. StaSof gloves got a modern technological makeover in 2004, and since then, they’ve been the best-selling cabretta leather golf glove in the world.

Men’s Executive Golf Footwear, Calfskin Leather
Waterproof Soft Leather
I really like the look of this classic golf shoe. I haven’t quite adjusted to the new flashy designs that Nike and Adidas are putting out there. I’ve read recently that FootJoy Classics are not being made anymore by FootJoy. This is another tragedy of the recent downturn ...
Leather Waterproof Memory Foam, Asymmetrical
These FootJoy icons are a departure from FJ's "Classics" that go back to 1959. Due to this crappy economy, FJ has closed one of its plants in Brocton, MA. I'm a big FootJoy guy and really don't mess around with too many other brands. The reason ...
Velcro Shoes w/ Spikes Drift Atomic Blue 48443
I'm the guy you want reviewing golf sandals -- I'm a sandal guy. Many of rounds, I've taken ridicule and persecution as I walked up to the first tee sporting my ventilated convertible foot wear. (My friends can be a little snooty when it comes to golf apparel.) The ...
Soft Leather White Cabretta by Pittards of England
Well the name doesn't lie, this glove is very soft! When you put this glove on it's like putting on your favorite pair of driving gloves. (You have driving gloves, no? For driving your Rolls Royce?)
The glove is made of Taction Cabretta Leather by Pittards of England. ...
Men’s Waterproof Leather 54108
These FootJoy Contour series are the most comfortable shoes that I've ever worn. Right out of the box, they feel like they are already broken in. If you have problems with your dogs barking after a round of golf, you will want to give these shoes a try.
These shoes ...
Men’s Golf Shoes | PVC Rubber Outsole
Here's a bare-bones inexpensive shoe by FootJoy. This shoe is comfortable and will get you from point A to point B, but it isn't the most advanced shoe FootJoy has (by far.)
This shoe is made of imitation leather. It's a PVC (poly vinyl chloride). It is soft and water-resistant and has ...
Soft Leather Waterproof Classics
FootJoy's DryJoys shoe has been an extremely successful model for the company. It comes in several different styles — we'll talk about the DryJoy in general first, and then we'll get to some details on the variations.
First off, let me just say that I'm going to gush a little in this ...
Waterproof White EVA 56772
I'm not a big fan of these golf shoes. Don't get me wrong; FootJoy makes a great product, but these are their scaled-down model. Let's call it the "Economy" FootJoy.
Let's point out the positives first. It's inexpensive. Plus, the shoe is waterproof. It has a ...
Leather Waterproof w/ Stinger Cleats
These cool FootJoy SYNR-G golf shoes were designed for golfers looking for stability and motion control. The three main features at work here are the FootJoy's Tri-lateral Stability Frame, Alloy Stability Bridge, and Stinger Cleats.
The Tri-Lateral Stability Frame is built with TPU (thermoplastic urethane) and EVA (ethyl vinyl acetate) ...
Gel Insole Genuine Leather
I have been known to like gadgets. It's true. New innovations that make things easier or faster are always interesting to me. When I saw this shoe come up for review, I was excited because I knew it had something different than I had ever seen before.
