REVIEW: FootJoy Flex XP Shoes
FootJoy has always been my go to footwear for golf and the new FootJoy Flex XP has allowed me to take the golf shoe off the course to wear on a daily basis. It all started when I was looking to get a new pair of golfing shoes and tried on a pair of the Flex XP shoes at my local golf course. From the moment I put them on, I knew these would be great, so much so that I purchased three different colors.
I walk nearly every round of golf and I like to have something that has a bit more cushion to each step like a tennis shoe. The soft EVA midsole was like a pillow under my feet that still maintained stability during a golf swing. The laser sport fit has a full rounded toe which is perfect for me because I usually need a wide size to accommodate my feet. There was no time needed to break them in, I took them straight to the course and played. Much like the name implies, the shoe was flexible and very enjoyable to walk in.
There are two things I love about the performance of the FootJoy Flex XP shoes.
- First, the Versa-Trax outsole is amazing. Each shoe has a Golf, Off-Course and Hybrid Traction Zone specifically designed to function for the best grip possible. Playing golf with these shoes is not like playing with metal spikes again, but the Versa-Trax has a grip that works exceptionally well on grass or the pavement.
- Second, FJ warrants this golf shoe will be waterproof in normal use for one year. Like many golfers I try to stay away from water with my golf ball and my shoes, but the waterproofing is nice when it is still a bit wet out. I’ve played in a downpour as well as morning dew and these shoes left my feet nice and dry.
They may look like a tennis shoe, which they really feel like, but they perform on the golf course as well. If you want a shoe that can be used on or off the course and in any kind of weather, the FootJoy Flex XP is the one for you.
