FootJoy has reigned as the #1 shoe on tour for years.  The Tour Alpha BOA will certainly help that cause because of their rock solid stability.  Add the BOA and Dual BOA option they are even better.  I’ve worn these shoes for 5 rounds of golf; a couple walking and the others riding.

 This is the definitive FootJoy Tour Alpha BOA Golf Shoe Review for 2022.


The FootJoy Tour Alpha BOA Golf shoes are the newest version of tour caliber shoes that offers extreme stability with laces, BOA and dual BOA.   These spiked shoes are the grippiest, most stable, lock down, swing for the fences, golf shoes I’ve ever tested.  The combination of Pular spikes, BOA options, Ortholite inserts, OPS (Optimized Performance Stabilizer), WrapID, and ChromoSkin Leather means these shoes can endure the most strenuous environments in golf.  While you may not be putting for millions of dollars on the 72nd hole; that daunting tee shot, or that side hill wedge shot when playing against our buddies can use all the stability we can get.

The FootJoy Tour Alpha BOA Shoes have a sleek look with their wrapped lace system to perfectly lock your foot into the shoe.  The SoftSpikes come in 2 colors in the bottom of the shoe (for looks) to lock your foot to the ground.  The strong connection means stability for walking and throughout the swing.  The ChromoSkin Leather has a “stiffness” to it, yet supple flex for excellent stability while maintaining a comfortable bend for walking.

The FootJoy Tour Alpha BOA Shoes have my favorite shoe feature: BOA.   They offer 2 BOA options, single and dual.  I went single on these with the dial in the back.  The WrapID is locked down on the side of the foot so no laces cut across the tope which allow for a better and more comfortable fit.  Everyone has a different foot shape and height to their arch.  This allows the fit to be dialed in precisely and easily maintained with a click of the BOA dial.

The FootJoy Tour Alpha BOA is one sharp looking shoe.  If you want technology, stability and BOA you won’t find a classier shoe out there.  It looks great with just about everything from shorts to khaki pants.  They are mostly white with some grey accents on the heel and just a pop or lime green.  The combination is very clean looking and because of the Chromoskin leather stays exceptionally clean in dusty and dirty conditions.

FootJoy Tour Alpha BOA Shoes are golf shoes only.  They are spiked and are not going to be worn off the course.  However I was impressed by their comfort.  While it took a few holes to break them in ; I didn’t feel the rush to get them off my feet after I walked off the 18 green.  The Ortholite insoles are really “cushy” and give the shoes a nice soft feel while walking.  They can be interchanged to adjust the fit even more to your specific foot needs.  In many brands I wear a 9.5; but in FootJoy I have found that 9 is the better fit.  So make sure you try these on or know your FootJoy size before ordering off the internet.


If stability is what you crave in a golf shoe, the FootJoy Tour Alpha BOA is the #1 shoe you need to try.  They are packed with features, the best of which is BOA.  You can go single or dual BOA to lock you feet to ground even better.  The #1 Shoe in golf created the #1 shoe for stability by combining a numerous features aimed to make a shoe fit great, grip the ground, repel the elements and lock your foot in for the most aggressive swings.
