    Ultra comfortable but I am lukewarm about the styling. I am likely to stay with the Pro S/L this year.

    The FJ Fury has an "inner sleeve" that hugs your foot. You may/may not like it.



    I prefer some play/looseness in my shoes.



    To each his own...

    Tried these on at GG. I really want to like FJ shoes but these look like payless specials. Bulky in areas and just cheap looking. Comfort was ok.

    I tried these on. Not impressed. I agree with Kirch17, I thought these were cheap looking.

    Those would look slick on the bowling lanes.

    Why pay footjoy prices when you can pay sketchers prices

    That’s the worst looking golf shoe of the last several years by a wide margin

    FJ offers a choice: Saddle or Bizarro



    Apparently, they want to avoid the middle ground when it comes to style.



    The ProSL (pre-2019 version) is as close to the middle as they get. They need more styles that work both on & off the course.

    I agree, either their design team grew up in communist eastern Europe or they intentionally go out their way to make some odd looking and just plain strange shoes.

    If there’s an 11 1/2 narrow I’ll try it. If Skechers fit my skis I’d be all over them.
