Hunter Mahan was spotted at the Open Championship wearing a new FootJoy prototype golf shoe. That shoe was officially unveiled as FootJoy's DryJoys Casual, a new performance spikeless golf shoe that features waterproof leather, a lightweight cushioned fit-bed for extreme comfort and heel support, and a proprietary polymer, two-layer outsole material called Fine-Tuned Foam (FTF).
The two distinct layers of FTF (the material is 10 percent lighter than EVA Foams) in DryJoys Casual enhances cushioning and shock absorption on the course.
“It was this combination of comfort and performance that attracted Mahan, who was the first player to wear DryJoys Casual shoes on the PGA TOUR, unveiling an early prototype at the Open Championship,” said Mike Foley, FJ Footwear's director of product management.
TPU skeletal traction stripes were also added to the outsole to improve traction and stability. According to FootJoy, the TPU stripes offer maximum comfort and create the most performance-driven spikeless midsole/outsole FootJoy has ever designed.
DryJoys Casual is currently available in two colorways (white and black) for $180.
