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 or flipped through a golf magazine, you've no doubt seen someone wearing FootJoy gear, or seen a logo on a cap, or at least seen an advertisement. Unknown to many, however, is that FootJoy also makes dress shoes. And these aren't just any old dress shoes -- these are premium made shoes, hand-stitched in the USA -- that are just as at home in the board room as in the clubhouse.

Made from a variety of leather materials, the uppers are chiefly fashioned from calfskin for a soft, comfortable fit. The difference between calfskin uppers and just "leather" is like putting on a brand new pair of jeans versus the 5-year old pair that is faded, and worn, and fit just right. The feel of fine calfskin is hard to beat. Inside the shoe, FootJoy does not scrimp, using full leather linings, a cushioned leather insole, and a Goodyear Welt construction. The outsoles are water-resistant leather with a rubber heel. Having worn FootJoy shoes for years, I can attest to their comfort, durability, and timeless styling.

The style of FootJoy dress shoes are pretty conservative, as you might imagine. A split-toe Blucher and Brogan are standard fare. Recently, however, FootJoy has shifted much of their dress shoe line to what they call Country Club Casuals. These are fine shoes as well, but provide a little more flair and a few more style choices that aren't quite so much "your father's shoes." FootJoy dress shoes are not the least expensive option available, but they are a good value. And with their classic styling, they will retain their good looks and appeal for many years of comfortable and durable wear.
