Need To Know

Incredibly stable, these shoes will unlock plenty of power in your golf swing; very comfortable from the moment you slip them on; really durable, they clean up nicely despite being so white
Quite pricey; standard shoe size was a little larger than ideal so we would recommend opting for a custom shoe fit for them or paying extra for BOA.

The brand new FootJoy HyperFlex Carbon Golf Shoes have been finely tuned to empower the golfing athlete such as our Equipment Editor Alex Lodge

If you also class yourself as an athletic-style golfer who wants to build more power in your game then you will most definitely want to read on as these golf shoes have wasted little time going straight into our Best Golf Shoes buyer guide of 2023. 

If you don't currently seek an athletic golf shoe then you might prefer to check out the equally impressive FootJoy Pro SL, which is one of the most durable and stable golf shoes we have ever tested. 

But for this review we are concentrating solely on the exciting new FJ HyperFlex Carbon, which we have been testing out for a while now.

FootJoy HyperFlex Carbon Golf Shoes - Looks

We don't usually expect to see 'Carbon' in golf shoes, usually that's been reserved for some of the best golf drivers as such as the Callaway Paradym Triple Diamond Driver and the TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus Driver

So while it's a bit of surprise to see a moulded carbon fibre power plate on a golf shoe, it looks great, and pleasingly as we will come on to shortly, it works.

This carbon fibre power plate has been designed by FJ to deliver that Tour stability and performance that all athletic golfers and power hitters are after from a premium golf shoe in 2023. 

One of the first things to note with these new golf shoes is the colour, especially for FootJoy. The colour choice is fresh, it's sporty, and it's modern. So a big thumbs up to FJ for that. 

FootJoy HyperFlex Carbon Golf Shoes - Comfort and Performance

These are some of the most technologically advanced golf shoes we have ever tested, and as we just touched upon with the looks, the carbon plate really does work well and keeps you nicely grounded.

While carbon is not completely new to sports shoes, for example, you do see this used in running, it's great to see FJ adapting and putting carbon in this shoe to increase the performance of a very popular HyperFlex golf shoe. 

But alongside all this stability comes tons of comfort. This is achieved by the brand's StratoFoam and FTF+ that comes with a 100% waterproof upper mesh. 

You are also aided by an OrthoLite Impressions FitBed that gives you a snug feel from the moment you jump inside them. 

While the stability, comfort and waterproof properties of this shoe make it the perfect golf shoe to wear all-year round, that feeling is only further strengthened when we realised just how easy it is to clean. It's just a very durable golf shoe. 

Despite wearing these fresh white shoes for a fair while now, we have noted just how good they still look. You can see for yourself by checking out our review of these shoes in the video above. 

The sizing of this shoe did feel a little larger than ideal (in our standard shoe size), but the instant comfort more than made up for it. We didn't even get any blisters either, so there was really nothing to worry about on that front. 

You could argue though, this is a big reason to opt for BOA lacing to just always ensure that locked-in feel. That costs an extra £25, and is probably worth it. 

But overall, these shoes are very, very stable. Our feet were always very nicely connected to the ground on all types of shots, even in wet conditions. 

We can't wait to continue using these golf shoes in speed training sessions this season, as we really think they will aid us in our goals to achieve greater clubhead and ball speed with the driver. 

Should you buy the FootJoy HyperFlex Carbon Golf Shoes? 

Stable, durable and extremely comfortable. This is one of the best athletic golf shoes on the market for 2023, and we will 100% be wearing these golf shoes throughout the season. 

These are the perfect golf shoes for anyone looking to improve their power as they keep you nicely connected to the ground and give you that firm base to unleash your biggest drives of all time. 

While we tested the shoes out in their standard version, they are available in BOA for an additional £25. 

They come in white/blue, black and grey in the standard version, and white and navy in BOA.
