The new FootJoy ContourFIT golf shoes have been revealed, offering what FootJoy is calling a ‘radical upgrade’ to the popular Contour Series.

The Contour Series shoes have always had a focus on comfort and that continues with the new FootJoy ContourFIT golf shoes that have been enhanced through noticeable upgrades that result in a lighter, more flexible and more comfortable shoe.

One key new feature is the Fine-Tuned Foam 3.0 midsole that is FootJoy’s softest and lightest midsole compound, giving you soft cushioning that doesn’t compromise on lateral support or your stability.

Inside the shoe there’s also a new Contour Plus Last and Extra Thick Fitbed. The former offers a full rounded toe for a roomier fit and an inner sole contoured to more closely match the shape of the foot, while the latter delivers enhanced cushioning with breathable comfort.

FootJoy’s new U-Throat lacing system has also been introduced for a generous fit, with the new achilles heel pad delivering support and comfort. Both then work with the connected comfort tongue to lock your foot into the shoe for a more precise fit.

A new DynaFlex outsole has flex grooves strategically placed to provide maximum flexibility and mobility while walking and during your swing, as you can see below.

A series of low-profile Pulsar cleats by SoftSpikes then offer green-friendly traction, with the shoe capped off with soft, full-grain waterproof leather and performance synthetic upper that come with a one-year-waterproof warranty.

Commenting on the new shoe, Doug Robinson, FootJoy VP of Golf Footwear Worldwide, told GM: “With a very successful category like Contour, the tendency is to implement minor enhancements, but that’s not something we subscribe to. We start looking for ways to enhance absolutely every detail – from the overall design and materials, to every stitch and groove, to the laces and cleats.”
