FootJoy has launched a brand new stylish and functional golf shoe category inspired by city living: the FJ City.

The new FJ City amalgamates fashion and function to deliver a modern golf shoe infused with contemporary styling and industry-leading technology.

The urban-inspired FJ City is comprised of a high-quality full-grain waterproof leather upper and a durable, cleated outsole.

It comes in five different style options and a number of two-tone colour options.

The leather upper on the FJ City golf shoe provide soft and fashionable performance and Fashion Forward designs enhance style without sacrificing functionality.

A cushioned midsole with two-tone colour accents gives eye-catching appeal and a DuraMax Rubber Outsole facilitates comfort, flexibility and traction.

"The new FJ City line gives fashion-conscious players seeking the latest in footwear trends an alternative shoe option that not only delivers the performance features to play well, but stylish designs to look the best on the course and in the clubhouse," said Doug Robinson, FootJoy's Vice President of Design and Development Worldwide.

"FJ City was inspired by modern trends and is a sophisticated balance between performance and style.

"Each design element, material and colour combination was carefully selected in order to deliver a polished, well-crafted shoe."

The 2014 range also includes, amongst others, the FootJoy D.N.A. and the AWD Casual, which was unveiled this April.

The FJ City is available in the following colour ways: Black/Mocha, Off White/Black, Tobacco/Yellow, Tan/Crimson and White/Blue.

The FJ City golf shoes go on sale in May with an RRP of £120.

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
