FootJoy has added to its 2014 golf shoe range with the introduction of the FootJoy AWD Casual

FootJoy has announced the launch of a new, street-styled spikeless golf shoe category: the FootJoy AWD Casual.

The AWD Casual - another addition to FootJoy's all-encompassing 2014 spikeless range - is designed to provide comfort, fit and performance, along with on- and off-course versatility.

The AWD Casual is available in four colour options and designed to accompany any garment from FootJoy's Performance Apparel clothing range.

The new FJ shoe's upper is constructed from full-grain leather for softness and comfort, while a PU Film membrane provides excellent waterproof protection without comprising on breathability.

A PU with Nylex covered Fit-Bed delivers excellent in-shoe comfort and a new sole design provides a platform for both on-course stability and off-course use.

"This is an exciting addition to our spikeless range, which continues to resonate extremely well with out loyal FJ fan base, who continually choose our golf shoes for the combination of pioneering designs and outstanding comfort, fit and performance," said Russell Lawes, FootJoy's Marketing Manager.

"Our 2014 range is our most complete offering to date and testament to our unerring ability to incorporate inventive options and meet the varying tastes of golfers.

"The design team have certainly struck the right chord with this striking design, delivering a new option for the golfer seeking the key performance technologies synonymous with FJ footwear alongside the convenience of spikeless shoes."

The 2014 range also includes the FootJoy D.N.A. and the FJ City, which was unveiled this April.

The FootJoy AWD Casual golf shoes comes in the following colour schemes:

White/Grey/Blue, Light Blue/Grey/White, Black/White and Light Grey/Charcoal/Hot Pink.

The FootJoy AWD Casual comes with a RRP of £65.

Neil Tappin
Digital Editor

In his current role, Neil is responsible for testing drivers and golf balls. Having been a part of the Golf Monthly team for over 15 years and playing off a handicap of 3, he has the experience to compare performance between models, brands and generations. For 2022 he thinks the main trend in drivers is: "In a word, consistency. Whilst all the brands are talking about ball speed (and the new drivers are certainly long), my biggest finding has been how much more consistent the ball flights are. Mishits don't seem to be causing the same level of drop-off or increase in the spin numbers. This means that more shots seem to be flying the way you want them to!" As far as golf balls are concerned the biggest development is in the, "three piece, non-Tour, urethane-covered section. For regular golfers, these models offer superb performance at both ends of the bag without denting your wallet quite as much as the premium Tour-played options."

Originally working with the best coaches in the UK to produce instruction content, he is now the brand's Digital Editor and covers everything from Tour player interviews to gear reviews. In his time at Golf Monthly, he has covered equipment launches that date back well over a decade. He clearly remembers the launch of the Callaway and Nike square drivers as well as the white TaylorMade driver families, such as the RocketBallz! If you take a look at the Golf Monthly YouTube channel, you'll see his equipment videos dating back over a decade! He has also conducted 'What's In The Bag' interviews with many of the game's best players like Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson and Jon Rahm. Over the years, Neil has tested a vast array of products in each category and at drastically different price-points. 

Neil is currently playing: Driver: TaylorMade Stealth Plus Fairway Wood: Titleist TSR2 Hybrid: Titleist TS3 Irons (4-9): Mizuno JPX 919 Forged Wedges: Titleist Vokey SM7 46˚, 50˚, 54˚, 60˚ Putter: Odyssey Triple Track Ten Ball: Titleist Pro V1X
