FootJoy have launched the all-new Tour Alpha shoe which features the latest footwear technology to deliver the ultimate stability option with the added benefit of supreme comfort.
The Tour Alpha’s premium, power silhouette is packed with visible technology allowing golfers to see and feel the innovation, which is activated throughout each step of the swing sequence, empowering players to take total control of their game.
At the forefront of its innovation is the game-changing OPS technology (Optimised Performance Stabiliser) a three-component innovation that locks in the golfer’s foot to deliver superior feel, unrivalled traction and optimise power.
The 3D moulded heel provides a stiffer, lighter and aesthetically interesting rear structure that provides lower Achilles support and locks the golfer’s heel in place during the swing.
There is a firm perimeter heel piece, combined with a soft-core midfoot piece. The soft midsole supports the foot with comfort while the firm heel centres the back foot for controlled balance during loading in the swing.
The A-frame is an external TPU structure that fuses the heel counter and the midsole together, to create synergy within the OPS and deliver ultimate stability at every stage of the swing.
The Tour Alpha takes the WRAPID Fit System powered by BOA to new levels, with a BOA and dual BOA offering.
Through extensive testing and pressure mapping, the BOA technology is proven to alleviate significant pressure on the top of the golfer’s foot and enhance the golfer’s fit.
The WRAPID 2.0 fit system features a dial on the heel and on the side. The dual BOA option is the next evolution of fit, alleviating pressure even further to help the golfer feel even more connected to the ground and further dials in that precise fit.
"Our Tour series has always been our most stable silhouette in the FootJoy portfolio, and the Tour Alpha is undoubtedly our most intelligent golf-specific innovation to date, which pushes the boundary of footwear technology with the OPS system driving performance at every step of the golf swing," said Guy Smith, Product Manager at FJ Footwear.
The Tour Alpha will be available to golfers on March 18 with Double BOA (£209.99), BOA (£194.99) and Laced (£169.99) options
