FootJoy has revealed its new Tour-S line of footwear, designed to offer stability, comfort and support.

Key technology
  • FJ Launch Pods deliver stability through maximum extension of the surface area in the heel and forefoot pods

  • Lightweight TPU Power Strap harnesses and regulates footwork throughout the swing

  • Proprietary Pebax Powered chassis delivers ultra lightweight tensile strength in full foot stabiliser

  • Dual Density PU Fit-Bed for underfoot cushioning

  • PPLTM – Pure Performance Luxury leather sourced by Pittards of England; 1 year waterproof warranty

  • Carbon weave fiberglass midsole plate delivers support, stability and motion control

  • Molded SecureCollarTM and ComforTongue promising a precision fit

A Tour-S PowerPlate outsole is a lightweight, stable platform with high levels of energy transfer.

Built upon a foundation of a proprietary Pebax polymer, that is typically 20% lighter than other polymers, the PowerPlate features an integrated carbon weave fiberglass mid-foot plate and nine LaunchPods to create additional structure, surface area, and ground coverage for maximum stability.

A PowerStrap locks the foot into place, allowing for a comfortable and snug fit.

A PU footbed and premium leather offers excellent levels of comfort, and also waterproof protection.

“From the moment I tested this shoe, I knew it provided the perfect blend of comfort and stability for me, especially on my left side as I move through the ball,” said Rafa Cabrera Bello.

“It feels like a wider platform than I’m used to, like I have more ground coverage and contact and a much more stable base,” said Kevin Kisner.

Cabrera Bello and Kisner join an increasing list of FJ Brand Ambassadors who have already put the Tour-S in play at tournaments around the world, with notable others including Charley Hoffman, Jason Kokrak and Andrew ‘Beef’ Johnston.

Comments

I thought £150 was pretty high for a pair of shoes, but my word £220 is surely pricing themselves out of most golfers pockets.

They look stunning but I can't justify that price to myself never mind the wife!!
