To celebrate 75 years as the number one shoe on the PGA Tour (shared from GolfPunk)
The Footjoy Premiere Series boasts the latest and best technologies available with a nod to past years’ classic golf shoes. FJ has been the number one shoe on the PGA Tour for 75 consecutive years, an impressive streak in any sport.
However, the brand is not resting on its laurels as it continues to push the envelope in both design and technology. As part of FootJoy’s continued brand innovation, FJ introduces the Premiere Series, a modern representation of the classic golf shoe for men and women.
Designed in collaboration with several PGA Tour players, the Premiere Series will feature three new upper designs, inspired by the past but made relevant for today. Influenced by the modern golfer’s discerning taste, each collection uses soft, supple premium leather uppers and ultra-lightweight materials and exquisite detailing that deliver distinctly contemporary classic styling.
The Premiere Series will be worn by more Tour players in 2021 than any other golf shoe, including Justin Thomas, Adam Scott, Ian Poulter, Webb Simpson and many more. Even during testing, the Premiere Series was the shoe chosen by more players at the 2020 Masters Tournament than any other.
“I was lucky enough to work with the team over the last several years to talk about what’s needed for the best golf shoe out there. My big belief is that FootJoy should have the best golf shoe out there and I believe they’ve achieved that with the Premiere Series.”
The Tarlow collection is inspired by Bill and Dick Tarlow, who bought the FootJoy business in 1957 and focused the brand primarily on golf. The Tarlow collection, a modern interpretation of the timeless cap toe design, uses a natural grain leather in the vamp and the quarter, complemented by a coordinated croc print in the heel, cap toe and eyestay. The midsole is complemented by a natural leather welt and contrast stitch.
The Packard collection is inspired by Frederick Packard, FootJoy’s founder and a shoe pioneer who drove the adoption of many modern manufacturing and design innovations still employed today. The Packard collection features exquisite detailing and pebble grain leather in both the vamp and the quarter. The collection uses a calfskin croc print accent in the saddle area, complemented by a natural leather welt and contrast stitching.
Inspired by Perley Flint, a young Harvard graduate and avid golfer who designed FootJoy’s first golf shoe in the 1920’s, this spikeless only collection is clean and refined. A smooth ChromoSkin leather is used in the upper, highlighted by embossed detailing on the saddle area, a refined FJ ornament as well as piping on the side. Inside the shoe, you will find premium lambskin linings and a new fitbed for exceptional comfort.
“They feel super comfortable the moment you put them on. They don’t need breaking in which is a massive plus, and I also obviously love the fact I can customise them!”
While timeless in design, the Premiere Series is infused with performance innovation, led by the all-new VersaTrax+ outsole. This revolutionary anti-channelling tread pattern is engineered to provide grip for any lie or angle, providing total traction coverage, reducing any slippage.
VersaTrax+ utilises multiple TPU compounds to grip any surface – a harder TPU for on-course grip and a softer TPU for traction on harder surfaces.
The Premiere Series also delivers on comfort, featuring an Ortholite EcoPlush FitBed® that delivers perimeter stability in the heel as well as super-soft and comfortable custom underfoot cushioning.
“I love ‘em. They are a bit classic, which reminds me of what I wore growing up, but definitely have a super modern twist while keeping that FootJoy look.”
