The FootJoy DNA golf-shoe line has been expanded for 2015 with the introduction of women's and junior models, plus new colour schemes.

The female version will be available in White/Black and White/Silver BOA and is complemented by a DNA-inspired junior design.

The men's DNA line, meanwhile, has been revamped for 2015.

Three new colour schemes - Black/Red, White/Orange (below) and White/Ocean Blue - join last year's most popular FJ DNA styles - Black/Black, White/Blue and White/Grey and White/White.

Some of the main features of the technologically advanced golf shoe include a 3D FoamCollar, SnugFit tongue, a stable NitroThin TPU Outsole, cushioned Xtra-Thick FTF FitBed and a ChromoSkin leather system by Pittards.

These facets combine to create lightweight comfort, stability and breathability.

"DNA was undoubtedly one of our most successful launches of all time, striking a chord with golfers and retailers worldwide and within the media," said FJ Marketing Manager Russell Lawes.

"We received many enquiries from female golfers keen for us to introduce a women's DNA and I am delighted to say we are now in a position to do so, allowing them to benefit from the same range of performance characteristics that the shoe has become famous for.

"We also take a great interest in inspiring future generations of golfers and think that we will spark the imaginations of many young golfers with the release of our DNA-inspired junior shoe, allowing them to play in a very similar style of shoe, in terms of appearance, as some of the game's star players."

The likes of major champions Adam Scott and Webb Simpson both wear FootJoy DNA shoes on the worldwide professional tours.

RRPs are as follows: men's - £160 (£175 with BOA lacing system), women's - £145/160, junior - £42.50.

The new FootJoy DNA golf shoes will all be available from January 2015.
