FootJoy Launches Special Edition Open Championship Shoe
Celebrating the historic return of The Open Championship to Northern Ireland, FootJoy has launched a Limited-Edition model of its acclaimed Pro/SL shoe, which features the iconic Claret Jug logo on both the saddle and tongue.
The shoe will also include the same performance benefits that have seen the Pro/SL chosen by more Top 100 players in the Official World Golf Ranking than any other model on the market.
The Pro/SL is made with Chromoskin leather for a soft, comfortable, waterproof leather upper and has a TPU moulded outsole offering outstanding spikeless traction.
FINE-TUNED FOAM (FTF)
For supple cushioning and a perimeter weighted outsole design for outstanding stability means hundreds of players have trusted the Pro/SL since its launch two years ago. The spikeless shoe has helped over 130 tour players worldwide to victory during that time.
The Open Championship returns to Royal Portrush from 14 - 21 July 2019, with 2010 Open Champion Louis Oosthuizen, Ryder Cup legend Ian Poulter and 2018 British Masters winner Eddie Pepperell set to be among the dozens of players in the field wearing FootJoy Pro/SL.
Richard Fryer, Director of Product Management at FJ Footwear, said: ‘’The Open Championship always marks a special moment on the golfing calendar and with the tournament’s return to Northern Ireland for the first time in 62 years, it’s guaranteed to be a memorable week.
‘’The Pro/SL is currently the hottest shoe in the game, and we are delighted that golfers can now mark the iconic week with this Limited-Edition shoe.’’
Pro/SL’s advanced midsole/outsole design provides an unrivalled combination of comfort and Tour calibre performance. Its multi-layer construction utilises Fine-Tuned Foam (FTF) which is 10% lighter than the conventional EVA foam used in most golf footwear, and each layer is engineered to deliver discrete performance benefits:
All new dual density, perimeter weighted spikeless outsole.
A TPU moulded outsole offer outstanding spikeless traction.
ChromoSkin leather, developed by Pittards, is supple, lightweight, durable and 100% waterproof.
The Laser Plus Last offers a full rounded toe character, standard fit across forefoot and instep, with a slightly narrow heel. Thicker insole provides increased underfoot cushioning for enhanced comfort.
This limited-edition FJ Pro/SL is available now in a limited quantity at FJ Stockists and on: https://www.footjoy.co.uk/.
