DryJoys Tour SL

FootJoy has expanded its range of spikeless golf shoes with the launch of the new DryJoys Tour SL model.

The traditionally-styled shoe is identical to Footjoy's DryJoys Tour franchise, but is now available in a spikeless model.  

The DryJoys Tour SL - which can be purchased from April 10 - will be available in classic Black smooth/Black pebble and White smooth/White pebble colour schemes.

The shoe features a Fibreglass Shank and a TPU/DuraMax Rubber spikeless outsole for effective grip on all surfaces, with a TPU/EVA Integrated midsole offering flexibility and comfort.

Other technology includes an Extreme Comfort Leather waterproofing system and a Comfort Plus PU Fit-Bed for additional cushioning.

"With the hybrid golf shoe market continuing to grow in popularity and buoyed by the success of the FJ spikeless range, we felt now was the perfect time to introduce the DryJoys Tour to the market ahead of the golfing season," said Russell Lawes, FootJoy's European Marketing Manager.

"The reaction from retailers has been extremely encouraging in response to a lifestyle shoe that showcases the premium materials, comfort and style that FootJoy has delivered for more than 100 years."

Other FootJoy spikeless models include the all-new M:PROJECT spikeless, the Contour Casual, the FJ Sport Spikeless and the Women's LoPro Casual.

The DryJoys SL will be available in a number of sizes. It will come with a one-year waterproof guarantee and a suggested retail price of £120.
