Just lay it on me. I've google searched a bit for rich forum discussions on the matter, but I just can't find good info on each shoe and comparisons to help me decide between getting FJ Dryjoys of FJ Icon Blacks.

 

This is what I'll end up choosing between:

 

Dryjoys (White / Brown Croc Print):

http://www.footjoy.com/dryjoys-tour/006DRY.html?dwvar_006DRY_color=53673#q=dryjoy&start=4

 

Icon Black (White / Chestnut Lizard Print or White / Dark Brown Croc Print)

http://www.footjoy.com/icon-black/005ICB.html?dwvar_005ICB_color=52006#q=icon&start=3

 

or

 

http://www.footjoy.com/icon-black/007ICB.html?dwvar_007ICB_color=52029#q=icon&start=1

 

Would love the hear what people think between the two in terms of conditions to use each shoe in, overall comfort, value in terms of pricing.

 

The bottom of those Dryjoys make it look like a realy comfy shoe but the icons looks so classy. Would love everyone's thoughts.

 

Thanks!

I find that these shoes fit completely differently. Which is the best fit depends on the shape of your feet. I highly recommend that you try on each for fit before you buy.

Icons - the DryJoys are a solid shoe but the Icons last longer for me. It may just be but whenever I've had DryJoys I've got about a season maybe a season and a half tops out of them. The icon Blacks I have now I've had for almot a season and they (with care and cleaning) still look as good as new.

Different in what way? I'm comfortable with a 9.5 wide Dryjoy. What size Icon? There are some 2014 Icons on ebay for about $100 and I wouldn't mind having a backup set.

Most people wear the same size shoe in an Icon or a DryJoys Tour. I find the feel is slightly different. But it really depends on how your shoe is fitting you now. The Icons come in the lasts below. Most are the Icon Laser Last. The traditional saddle comes in the Laser Last and definitely fit bigger in volume than the Icon Laser Last. So if you need a fuller foot model, the saddle is the way to go.


  • Laser Last (styles 52039, 52005, 52013, 52054 and 52047) or Icon Laser Last
    Icon Laser Last - Contemporary, slightly squared toe character, standard fit across forefoot and instep, with a slightly narrow heel. The Icon Laser Last is a composite of thousands of digital scans of the FootJoy Laser Fitting System. Laser Last - Full rounded toe character, standard fit across forefoot and instep, with a slightly narrow heel.

And the DryJoys Tour come in the Laser Plus Last. As you can see, that last is pretty much the same as the Laser Last used in the Icon Saddle style shoe.

 

Laser Plus Last - Full rounded toe character, standard fit across forefoot and instep, with a slightly narrow heel. Thicker insole provides increased underfoot cushioning for enhanced comfort.

 

Personally, I like the Icon Laser Last, as I don't have a wide foot and that's what fits me best.

 

Good luck, you can't go wrong with FJ Icons. :-)

Are you talking about Icons or Icon Blacks? They are different and fit differently to me as well.

 

The Icon Blacks feel much roomier than the same size Icons and Dryjoys for my feet. But everyone's feet are different so be sure to try them on in a store before buying.

Just got my first pairs of Myjoys, went with Icons. The shoe fits great in every aspect except the heel. I always wear 11 in FJ shoes, I have a narrow foot, got measured with the FJ device at golf shop. I was an 11 and just barely a medium, but the guy told me these run a little narrow so go with medium, however the width of the heel seems roomier than my other FJ shoes, anyone else run into this with the fit. I guess I will need thicker socks, any recommendations?

I'm a bottom feeder (sort of) so I'm looking at the discounted 2014 version Icons. Saddle shoe type.

 

I've been wearing the similar style saddle shoe Dry Joy Tour's and they fit fine. I'm assuming these Icon's will fit fine as well. Hesitating on the purchase though because I've already got a spare pair of Dry Joys and I don't want to become a shoe-ho.

Owning three pairs of golf shoes is not even close to a shoe-ho! I don't think that starts until after maybe, five pair. :-)

I just don't understand the Icon look. Why can't shoe companies make shoes that conform to the shape of a foot? Why have 2 inches of pointy toe that does nothing to support the foot? Looks like a cowboy boot with those toes.

I'm not sure what you're talking about. I've got five different styles of Icons and for my normal shaped foot, my toes fill the toe box as they're designed. There's not two inches of pointy toe with nothing there.

Thorlo max-padded socks are about as thick as you'll find. I like the tennis style for wearing with shorts. About three times a year Thorlo has a buy three get a forth free promo for the best deal. Enjoy your MyJoys!

If they don't fit, don't be afraid to return them for another size under the 30-day comfort warranty. I had to return my MyJoy Icons twice before I received a properly fit pair.

I have both and I much prefer the fit for the Dryjoys. Got the Icons at a golf tournament is the only reason I have them. I have been wearing Dryjoy (oh yes...they are the saddle versions...best style every) for years. If you keep them clean they will last forever. I don't wear the same pair of shoes every time I play but I do play a lot of golf (upwards of 150 or more rounds per year) and I have perfectly good Dryjoys that are 6 years old and still keep my feet dry.

How about fricken NO!. $300 for a pair of saddles? I would not be caught dead on the course in saddle shoes. Worst style ever.

Luckily, no one is going to force you to buy them or wear them. I hope you're going to be alright! :-)

Actually just a bit of a running gag brought over from an old deceased golf forum. Probably won't catch on here, but might bring back fond memories for a couple of posters. I've had saddles in the past but am a Puma guy now so don't have any, but truth be told I'm glad Puma hasn't gone down the saddle road as they do look a bit 'old fart' imho.
