FootJoy partner with Jon Buscemi to create "The Player's shoe"

FootJoy has partnered with West Coast street-fashion icon Jon Buscemi on a collection of shoes that introduce a unique and luxurious spin on the Tour-proven Premiere Series.

"The Player's Shoe," released in time for the Players Championship, uses premium materials and quality craftsmanship with a nod to the Southern Gentleman.

This exciting collaboration will launch at TPC Sawgrass this March, when defending champion, Justin Thomas, and several other FJ players debut the FJ X Buscemi shoe in competition.

Building on the success of the Premiere Series, the shoe chosen by more tour players than any other, the FJ x Buscemi collection features the same world-class performance players expect from Premiere Series.

It has been elevated in design with a luxurious touch from one of the world’s foremost experts in footwear fashion.

"FootJoy has had some really cool energy around the Premiere Series collection which I have loved since the inception. I was also a huge fan of the 1857 collection for years as well," said Buscemi.

"The cross-section of centuries-old style with modern twists is spot on and I was excited to play with those dynamics."

The use of gold not only modernizes the classic silhouette of Premiere Series, but also gives a subtle nod to The Players Championship trophy, currently in the possession of FJ Ambassador Thomas.

"I’m really digging all of the small details put into this collection and the touches of gold throughout," said the 2017 PGA champion.

"The combination of creative street style and golf performance is perfect, and I can't wait to put these into play."

The teams worked with Pittards of England to hand-select the finest, most premium full-grain leathers for this collaboration. The collection is infused with performance innovation, led by the VersaTrax+ outsole.

This anti-channelling tread pattern is engineered to provide grip for any lie, providing total traction coverage, reducing slippage from any angle. With modern styling, tour-proven performance and the most premium material executions and details, this shoe is made for a champion.

The FJ x Buscemi collection is available now on, while supplies last.
