This superb offering from FootJoy showcases the company’s desire to take fashion onto the fairways without compromising on performance. The FootJoy Women’s emBODY shoe features many technologies designed to provide the ultimate in comfort, fit and support, but the styling is elegant and striking – classic golf shoe with a modern twist.

The uppers of the shoes are extremely flexible and lightweight thanks to the use of the plus NappaLuxe leather. It provides great aesthetic appeal as well as being highly durable as well as supremely comfortable.

When you combine these supple uppers with the soft and lightweight moulded fit bed you get a very comfortable pair of shoes offering superior cushioning and support.

The emBODY shoes are constructed using FootJoy’s Contour Last. This features a full rounded toe and space across the forefoot and this means the shoe will fit a far wider range of foot types. The last bottom has been contoured to more closely match the shape of the average foot, further enhancing comfort.

The Fast Twist Cleat system provides excellent traction, even in tough or wet conditions while, also with wet weather in mind, the one-year limited waterproof warranty gives piece of mind.

The shoe is available in a range of colour options and there is also the option of a Velcro strapped version or with FootJoy’s excellent Boa, laceless, closing system.

Overall, this is a shoe that delivers against a variety of criteria – the FootJoy women’s emBODY is stylish and comfortable providing great stability and support.
