FootJoy Releases New Pro/SLX Golf Shoes For 2024

By: Golfshake Editor | Wed 24 Jan 2024 | Comments


FootJoy's Pro|SL has been a hugely successful franchise for the manufacturer, but that has now been taken to the next level with the new Pro/SLX and Pro/SLX Carbon golf shoes, which have been engineered to offer golfers the ultimate in traction, comfort and control.

Traction

Pro/SLX will introduce a new traction design called the PWR TRAX System. It features a moulded 3D X-Wing that is engaged by swing forces to redistribute energy to the perimeter of the golf shoe, inspired by the wide base found in race cars to maximise perimeter stability and traction. The Race Trak Outsole with radial disc traction harnesses and extends into the ground to increase the overall traction footprint. Multiple traction elements target specific on-course conditions and around-the-course walking needs.

Comfort

FJ’s comfortable StratoFoam midsole offers exceptional comfort and is specifically tuned to absorb and return energy with every step. Around the ankle is a 3D Moulded Collar that locks the foot in place for supreme comfort and a reliable, consistent fit.

Control

The 3D X-Wing provides increased stability as you swing and engage with the ground. An FTF+ foam surrounds the StratoFoam midsole for a stable platform when swinging. An exposed heel stabiliser and side wall TPU wrap help to control lateral and upper movement. Like its predecessors, Pro/SLX golf shoes are sure to be popular at every level of the game, including on the professional Tours. They have already been worn in practice and in play by the likes of Sungjae Im, Corey Connors, Daniel Hillier and many more.

Daniel Hillier said: “What FootJoy have done with that extra support around the ankle has definitely made the shoe feel very stable. The comfort levels of the Pro/SLX are amazing - better than the previous iteration which is great as it combines comfort with durability and stability providing everything you want from a golf shoe. I really like the style also, it has a slightly wider base which is going to help with the traction element. I am very reluctant to ever go back to my previous shoe model now as these are so good.”
