FootJoy has unveiled a range of performance updates and new colour schemes to revamp some of its most popular shoe models for 2016.

The D.N.A. shoe (£160, £180 BOA) or DryJoys Next Advancement, will sport a brand new upper design in 2016, as well as a new cleat system. Updated colour schemes include white/black, black, white/red and white/blue. And, for the first time, the popular shoe will be available on the brand’s popular MyJoys programme.

Elsewhere, the DryJoys Casual (£135, £150 BOA) – worn by the likes of Louis Oosthuizen and Lee Westwood – has been enhanced courtesy of updated styling and fashionable colour schemes. From 2016, this spikeless shoe will be available in white/navy, black/white, white/red and white/black, as well as in the brand’s patented BOA closure system.

The DryJoys Tour (top-right, £145), meanwhile, features new, softer ChromoSkin leather developed by Pittards. This material change is supplemented by a host of fresh colour patterns, from black/black croc to white/navy gator.

Finally, the Hyperflex shoe (£140, £160 BOA), introduced to great acclaim at the start of the year, will be available in navy/electrical blue, white/lime, black/red, white/metallic and silver/yellow in 2016. The existing black/silver/yellow and white/light grey/royal blue colourways also continue.

The new designs will be available from January 2016, along with all of FJ's Autumn/Winter performance apparel.

“With new upgrades to the increasingly-popular DryJoys range, golfers have the chance to combine ultimate style and unparalleled performance when taking to the course,” said Paul O’Hagan, FootJoy Marketing Executive. “HyperFlex has also been a big hit since its launch earlier this year and now we’ve added even more colour combinations to reflect the latest fashion and athletic trends expected for 2016.”

“Our R&D team has worked extremely hard to improve the performance of these models yet again and come up with some inspiring new designs that will be donned by many of the world’s best players,” added O’Hagan.
