Golf Monthly Senior Staff Writer Paul O'Hagan tests the FJ Sport Spikeless golf shoe

FootJoy Sport Spikeless
Golf Monthly Verdict

GM verdict: This FootJoy model makes complete sense. Spikeless designs tend to be extremely lightweight and comfortable, as well as offering surprising levels of strong grip. However, the only major issue on many spikeless offerings is the lack of support around the foot, particularly when swinging. The Sport Spikeless utilises the excellent stability of the original spiked design, but with the benefits of a lightweight spikeless sole unit. The grip on offer is extremely impressive, and the look will appeal to a wide range of golfers. This is a shoe that ticks many boxes. But... those looking for a spikeless option to wear off the course may choose to look elsewhere. This FootJoy offering is most definitely a dedicated golf shoe. PGA pro verdict: FootJoy has come up with another great performance shoe. Comfortable, stable, waterproof, and with striking looks. The new sole unit gives superb grip and yet is cleat free, so no replacement spikes are needed. These shoes are lightweight, flexible and the insole gives great comfort. A mesh liner provides extra breathability, meaning my feet felt fresh after 18 holes. This is a real sport shoe, delivering unrivalled comfort and quality. Test Team Rating: Performance: 4/5 Visual appeal: 4/5 Innovation: 4/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 4/5
