The choice available on the market when it comes to Women's Golf Shoes is fantastic. This offering from FootJoy really got us excited. From a performance point of view these feel ultra stable as you swing. We were impressed at how the shoe glues itself to the grass even in dewy conditions, this is down to Infinity Outsole having 30% more points of traction than its predecessor. It boasts 189 points of traction and 17% more surface area in the heel so no wonder it feels like it's supporting so well throughout the swing.  A bouncy feel on the shoe makes for a super comfy walk thanks to the Stratofoam midsole cushioning, it is easily the most cushioned FootJoy shoe we've ever tested.

With a really great array of sizing and widths available it’s easy to get your fit just right. These shoes come up really true to size though FootJoy are great when it comes to customer service if there is an issue, with free returns. The weight - or rather lack of it - is what really impressed. These shoes are as light as a feather and feels like you aren’t wearing anything on your feet at all. If it is a spikeless shoe you are after but you want something more like like a trainer then check out our offerings in the Best Women’s Spikeless Shoe Guide.

Here’s where we got really excited, you can customize these bad boys! So if the 3 color options aren’t ticking your box, or perhaps like so many golfers out there your feet are slightly different sizes… you can go all out MyJoy on these. Designing your own shoe couldn’t be easier through the customize section on FootJoy’s website. Personalized along with performance, you can’t ask for much more! 

Classy and Comfortable

With 3 standard color options you may not need to go down the pimping your Pro/Sl’s route… We love the rose gold accents on the white version. Adding a bit of bling into what is a smart bit of kit. The grey is a mute shade that is extremely wearable with a flash of blue on the soles. It's a solid leather shoe that is 100% waterproof and it kept our feet so dry in some seriously soggy rounds. We’ve worn this on multiple occasions now and constantly get comments on how smart these shoes are.  

Classy and Comfortable these shoes feel great on
