FootJoy XPS-1 added to FJ MyJoys family
FootJoy has announced that its performance-enhanced XPS-1 golf shoe has been added to the FJ MyJoys family.
The XPS-1 - designed to provide golfers with balance and stability through all phases of the golf swing - has seen a fresh new design, introduced specifically for MyJoys.
It features three areas of customisable colour: the predominant base shade, a half-moon contemporary saddle and an additional accent of colour covering the tongue and top collar of the shoe.
What's more, a new ghost white Xtreme Outsole and TPU lateral outriggers will combine to give the XPS-1 both stability and shelf appeal.
FootJoy's XPS-1 feature a raft of technological and performance benefits, including a 3D Viscoelastic GelCollar for increased comfort and a Multi-Density Fit-Bed for stability, cushioning and shock absorption.
To mark the addition of FootJoy's XPS-1 to the MyJoys programme, six new microfiber materials have also been added.
White and Silver Sphinx, Black and Silver Sphinx, Silver Fluid Patent, White Mocrofiber Patent, Blue Metal Patent and Black Metal Patent will join the 40-plus other leathers previously available.
XPS-1 MyJoys will retail at £235 for the laced version of £245 with the BOA Closure System.
They join popular FootJoy models FJ Icon, DryJoys Tour and Countour Casual in the MyJoys portfolio, making more than four million total colour combinations.
