The FootJoy Pro/SL shoe is one of the products featured in our Editor's Choice product list.
Still one of the most popular shoes FootJoy sells, it seems like an age ago that they first burst onto the scene back in 2016. However the mantra ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ definitely applies here with the only changes to the 2019 model coming in the shape of a re-design.
It is illuminating how the Pro/SL is chosen by more of the world’s top 100 golfers than any other shoe which is testament to the quality of their performance. They combine a soft and comfortable waterproof upper with a midsole/outsole unit with three layers to provide comfort, stability and spikeless traction. FootJoy’s Fine Tune foam definitely creates a soft and cushioned home for your feet and the TPU elements on the outsole give the grip you need from any stance.
In particular, those who have an over-active lower half during the swing will benefit immensely from being locked a little more in place throughout the swing.

New Colour Combos
FootJoy earlier this year updated the design of the shoe with several new upper and colour combinations – all of which look fantastically modern and yet somehow still understated and classy. Additionally the shoe has been quickly added to the Footjoy MyJoys platform which is where you can customize the shoes in terms of size, width and create your own distinctive colourway.
Because of the overall popularity of these shoes and the undeniable performance on offer, inclusion in our 2019 Editors Choice List was a given. The fact they came out in 2016 is irrelevant because they continue to be one of the leading pieces of footwear in the golfing market and if you haven’t experienced the comfort of them yet, we cannot recommend doing so enough.
