FootJoy Icon Shoes Review
When it comes to the world of golf, no shoe company has had a larger ‘footprint’ in the industry than FootJoy. We here at RealGolfTalk.com wear them and there is no question that when it comes to comfort, this brand is on the short list with the best in the world. With the loss of their Classic Line, it left us wondering what was going to be next for this brand that is built on tradition, style, and class. FootJoy did not leave us waiting for long as they launched a new line called ICON that seemed to be an improvement over their previous high end offerings in terms of selection and style.
Upper Features Luxurious Calfskin Detailing – Calfskin is the finest shoe leather in the world. Luxurious calfskin offers unparalleled beauty and resistance to stretching.
Premium Full Grain Leather Uppers – This soft premium leather offers outstanding waterproof comfort, breathability and durability.
Two-Year Waterproof Warranty – FootJoy warrants that this golf shoe will be waterproof in normal use for two years (US warranty)
Stinger cleats by CHAMP – The Stinger golf spike offers superior traction throughout the entire golf swing. This golf spike also provides stability and support from the moment you step foot on the golf course. Unlike traditional spikes, its spring-flex traction makes the Stinger extra friendly to the greens.
ICON Torque Bar – Made from perforated alloy, this feature is used in the shank area of the outsole to increase mid-foot stability and support. The perforated treatment also gives the Torque Bar a contemporary look.
In-Shoe Features Full Leather Linings – Leather linings provide superior comfort, slip resistance and in-shoe breathability.
Leather Covered Dual Density PU Removable Fit Bed – This leather covered dual density PU Fit-Bed creates an underfoot base that more closely mimics the natural shape of your foot, which helps provide a quality fit and cushioned support. The footbed is indeed removable for those of you that would like to replace it with a custom insert or orthotic.
Memory Foam – Memory Foam is located in the tongue and around the collar, providing a custom fit to enhance comfort. Memory Foam is a fantastic fitting technology that truly conforms the the unique shape of the the foot and retains its integrity over time.
Microfiber Heel Counter – Soft microfiber is strategically placed in the heel to ensure an optimal slip resistant fit.
Overall the FootJoy ICON golf shoe is simply that…An ICON on the golf course. The brand is offering customization to its high end golf shoe that simply dwarfs the competition in terms of options. Color selection is great, styles and textures are unequalled, and in the end, you get to add your initials or wording to complete your set.
