Here we take a run through the very best FootJoy golf gloves on the market right now, from premium leather to all weather
Best FootJoy Golf Gloves
Getting the best golf gloves for you, both in terms of fit and to suit your playing requirements, can greatly enhance your on-course performance.
There’s nothing worse than a glove that pinches or slips, nor one that only lasts for a round or two before becoming misshapen or losing its gripping power. FootJoy has long been at the forefront of glove technology and design and produces a fine selection of products.
There are various options when it comes to golf gloves to suit different requirements. If you want gloves that the top professionals use and trust, then the premium leather offerings will deliver in this regard.
For those after more durability, synthetic fabrics could be the way forward. In challenging conditions, all weather, rain and winter gloves could be game changers.
Thankfully, FootJoy can offer gloves in each of those categories within its current range and the company continues to lead the way in glove design and innovation.
What then are the best FootJoy golf gloves currently on offer? We’ve reviewed and tested them and have selected our favourites below to help you decide which will suit your requirements.
Best FootJoy Golf Gloves
FootJoy StaSof Golf Glove
+ Superb feel and fit
+ Excellent grip
– Soft leather isn’t as durable as some materials
FootJoy has been making the premium all-leather StaSof since 1980 and it remains the company’s most popular glove among tour players.
Constructed from TactionLT Advanced Performance leather, it feels fantastic against your skin and it delivers that hint of natural tackiness you expect from high-end leather, helping you maintain a strong grip on the club.
Breathing holes on the front and back of the fingers help keep your hand cool, while the PowerNet mesh across the knuckles adds to the glove’s flexibility.
The Velcro closure tab is slightly angled to work with the shape of the hand and overall, it’s a very comfortable glove to wear.
Although leather won’t last like some synthetic fabrics, the StaSof is impressively durable and we found it will continue to perform after a number of rounds and practice sessions.

FootJoy HyperFLX Glove
+ Soft touch
– Although durable for leather, it’s not as durable as some synthetic models
Constructed from premium CabrettaSof leather, this is a nice feeling glove. But with its technical construction it’s also highly flexible and breathable.
The CabrettaSof leather palm offers that nice tacky grip you would expect from a leather glove and it’s pretty durable to boot.
On the back of the glove, a high performance FiberSof material allows for excellent flexibility and enhanced comfort.
The PowerNet mesh across the knuckles also helps with movement.
Although the fit is neat, it certainly doesn’t feel constrictive and you can move fingers freely.
Perforations have been strategically placed to allow for good breathability while the elastic cuff is moisture wicking to further enhance fit and comfort.

– Not the most durable
This is FootJoy’s most luxurious glove. Made from extremely soft Cabretta leather, it’s supremely supple and feels like a second skin on the hand.
The specially treated leather moulds to your hand and, together with the strategically placed, targeted elastic, the fit is second to none.
Strategic perforations mean the glove is breathable and will keep your hand cool in warm weather.
The FootJoy Pure Touch feels great, looks great, and offers exceptional fit and feel. Put simply, it’s one of the best golf gloves out there.

Constructed with feedback from top players, it features a soft TactionLT Cabretta leather palm for comfort, grip and feel with micro perforations to increase breathability.
On the back, Microvent FiberSof material has been cleverly placed to deliver further breathability and, above all, flexibility.
We found this to be a supremely comfortable glove that moves well with the natural shape of the hand. The fit is excellent, and the combination of fabrics works well.
It’s durable and well-constructed. The synthetic back of the glove means it retains its shape and fit nicely. It’s well worth a trial run.

+ Great flex
+ Magnetic ball marker
– Not as soft as the Cabretta models
This high-tech glove offers exceptional grip and durability. Constructed from a combination of FibreSof material and APL leather, it’s built to last but not at the expense of fit and feel.
The clever use of moisture-wicking elastics helps to deliver a precise fit and the PowerNet mesh over knuckles and fingers greatly enhances flexibility.
Perforations offer breathability, while the combination fabrics will stand up well to rainfall.
We like the touch of the magnetic ball marker on the back of the hand – it’s unobtrusive but easy to access, removing the need for fumbling in the pocket!
Overall, the FootJoy GT Extreme glove is a good crossover option, delivering good fit and feel combined with durability and resilience. It is also available in women’s sizes too which is why we included the GT Extreme in our best golf gloves for women guide too.

FootJoy RainGrip Golf Glove
+ Quick drying
+ Available as a pair
– Won’t keep hands warm
The FootJoy RainGrip glove showcases the company’s expertise when it comes to producing innovative and functional products. It’s one of the best wet weather golf gloves out there.
The autosuede knit palm provides tremendous grip in the wet. In fact, the wetter it gets, the better the grip. We found that, if you’re playing in the rain, it’s a good idea to get the palm of the RainGrip a little wet before you even start to maximise grip.
It’s very comfortable for a wet weather glove, lightweight and neat fitting with stretch properties meaning it hugs the hand nicely.
The QuikDry knit fabric has been designed not only to be quick drying, as the name suggests, but also breathable and flexible.
The ball marker is a nice feature and actually comes in very useful on wet days, giving you one less reason to have to dig around in soggy pockets.
The FootJoy RainGrip is available either as a single glove or a pair.
