FootJoy Fuel Women's Golf Shoe Review
There’s a very good reason FootJoy holds the Number One position in the golf shoe market year after year - they make really, really great shoes that don’t just look good and feel good, but shoes that perform round after round. I wore my last pair of FootJoy waterproof shoes for three years before finally deciding they’d perhaps seen better days!
The new FJ Fuel has pushed the bar higher once again, easily becoming one of the best women's golf shoes on the market. Power and distance are definitely big buzz words in the modern game and the world’s best female professionals are catching up with the men in the distance-stakes. Lexi Thompson, the Korda sisters, Lydia Ko…the list of really long hitters is rising. Yet the typical amateur lady golfer still struggles to hit the ball far enough to carry her drives over the trouble on many holes, so anything we can use to give us a helping hand is worth trying.
Step forward the Fuel. These impressive shoes have special Power Stabiliser outsoles to improve your foot’s traction with the turf and stability in the swing. When you first put them on they feel a little rigid but the synthetic leather uppers soon give and the feeling of the foot being very well supported and grounded as you swing is great. We didn’t suffer with sore feet at all from the very first round and the soft foam insoles contributed to that lovely light, sporty feeling you get as you walk.
At £124.99 we think that the Fuel is well worth the investment whether you play golf every week or just casually, particularly as they come with a 1-year waterproof guarantee. They are super easy to wipe clean after you play, which is just as well as there is no black colour option, so they’ll stay looking like new for a whole golfing season or longer if you take care of them.

Tips on how to play better, latest equipment reviews, interviews with the biggest names and more.
Carly Frost is one of the golf industry’s best-known female writers, having worked for golf magazines for over 20 years. As a consistent three-handicapper who plays competitive club golf at Parkstone and the Isle of Purbeck courses in Dorset every week, Carly is well-versed in what lady golfers love. Her passion for golf and skill at writing combine to give her an unbeatable insight into the ladies game.
Carly’s role at Golf Monthly is to help deliver thorough and accurate ladies equipment reviews, buying advice and comparisons to help you find exactly what you are looking for. So whether it’s the latest driver, set of irons, golf ball, pair of shoes or even an outfit, Carly will help you decide what to buy.
Over the years Carly has been fortunate to play some of the greatest courses in the world. Her view ‘from the ladies tee’ is invaluable. She ranks Sea Island, Georgia, USA, where she met her husband, world-renowned golf coach Dan Frost, among her favourite golf resorts. Their aptly-named eight-year-old son Hogan is already hitting the ball as far as Mum and will undoubtedly be a name to watch out for in the future.
Carly is a keen competitor and her list of golfing achievements are vast. She is a former winner of the South West of England Ladies Intermediate Championship, a three-time winner of the European Media Masters and she once beat an entire start-sheet of men to the title of Times Corporate World Golf Champion. She has played for both the Dorset and Surrey County Ladies first teams and is known for her excellent track record at matchplay.
Carly holds the ladies course record (68) at her home club Parkstone and her lowest competition round (seven-under-par 65) was carded in the pro-am of the Irish Ladies Open at Killeen Castle, playing alongside Solheim Cup superstar Anna Nordqvist. Although her current handicap index has crept up to 3.7 since Covid she has her sights firmly set on achieving that elusive scratch handicap and hopefully playing for her country when she’s 50.
