FootJoy Tour Alpha Carbon Triple BOA Cover

The FootJoy Tour Alpha Carbon Triple BOA Golf Shoes are the most intense golf shoes I’ve ever worn.  They locked my feet to the ground while swinging clubs for 4 rounds.  They also offer a comfortable walk for all 18 holes and incredible traction no matter the conditions.   The combination of triple BOA and Carbitex makes this shoes the ultimate golf shoe.

This is the definitive FootJoy Tour Alpha Carbon Triple BOA Golf Shoes Review for 2024.

FootJoy Tour Alpha Carbon Triple BOA Cover

Triple BOA

How many BOAs is too many?  Not 3.  BOA offers a precise fit with their micro adjustments with each click of the BOA disc.  The lace system does not stretch like traditional laces so that even a single BOA can lock in the fit and keep it all 18 holes.  However if you are looking to increase that precise fit, you can add BOAs to dial in specific areas differently.  Instead of a constant tension of the BOA fit system, you can adjust the mid foot more than the ankle and different from the heel.  The FootJoy Tour Alpha Carbon Triple BOA fit system gives you the most precise fit  of any golf shoe you can buy.  I liked the ability to increase or decrease tension in different areas of the shoe with the ease of BOA.  Triple BOA is still easier and faster than traditional laces for both on and off.

Carbitex OmniFlex

The FootJoy Tour Alpha Carbon Triple BOA Golf Shoes have a unique carbon fiber feature on the BOA tongues and heel wrap.  Carbitex OmniFlex is a lightweight carbon fiber weave material that is flexible yet has incredibly high tensile strength.  The use of Carbitex OmniFlex means that you get a comfortable walk, weight reduction of material, yet the most stability for aggressive swings since it doesn’t stretch like leather.  The material looks cool which is kind of nice side bonus for the look of these shoes. 

OPS Outsole

The sole of the FootJoy Tour Alpha Carbon Triple BOA Golf Shoes have aggressive spikes.  The OPS Outsole (Optimized Performance Stabilizer) is the design of the heel counter, A-frame and lateral clips that all work together to keep your feet locked to the ground.  If you want a shoe that guarantees the most traction, these are it.  The spikes, sole, OPS, etc all connect to the ground with elite traction no matter the turf conditions.

ChromoSkin Leather

The FootJoy Tour Alpha Carbon Triple BOA Golf Shoes are mainly made of ChromoSkin Leather.  It is a waterproof and supportive leather that holds up really well to aggressive swings.  However this means that they are stiff and take some time to break in.  The Triple Boa and Carbitrex offer a precise fit so that the break-in time was minimal, but I noticed the stiffness in the toe area of these shoes.  The leather just isn’t as supple and flexible as other shoes.  They had some unnecessary rub on my toes as I was walking 18 holes.  After that, the stiffness went away and these shoes offered elite stable and support. If you are looking for a golf shoe that is going to last you a while, the combination of Chromoskin leather, Carbitex, BOA and Spikes are the most durable shoes you can buy.

Performance

The FootJoy Tour Alpha Carbon Triple BOA Golf Shoes are the most intensely stable shoes you can buy.  I’ve tried just about everything out there and nothing compares to these.  If you want more support, more stability, more “lock my feet to the ground” traction, these shoes are simply the best.  They have a lot going on and a whole bunch of ways to make them precisely yours by getting each BOA perfect.  If you feel slippage from time to time with your current golf shoes, these will reduce that to zero.   The connection to the ground, the reduction of foot roll, the support from the ground up and the precise fit means you have a shoe for your feet.  Solid contact starts with a solid connection to the ground.

Summary

The FootJoy Tour Alpha Carbon Triple BOA Golf Shoes are the most intense combinations of materials and technologies.  The Triple BOA Fit System allows you to dial in each area of the shoe for the most precise fit.  The Carbitex OmniFlex keeps the shoes lightweight, while maintaining a constant stretchless fit across the top of the shoe.  The OPS Outsole means you stay connected to the ground no matter how aggressively you swing, while the Chromoskin leather is waterproof and sturdy to keep the entire foot locked in and supported for every step and swing.  If you want the most intense stability and support in a golf shoes, the FootJoy Tour Alpha Carbon Triple BOA Golf Shoes are just what you are looking for.
