FootJoy, the #1 Shoe in Golf, introduces HYPERFLEX, the most distinctive footwear category in its history. Featuring innovative materials like the new FlexGrid™ exoskeleton, HYPERFLEX delivers lightweight support and cushioning so you can play at your highest level.
The most striking feature of the new HYPERFLEX golf shoe is the upper. Most athletic shoes are constructed with soft, mesh upper materials that are ideal for running and activities that don't require a lot of lateral movement. However, for FJ’s research & development team, the key was to keep those comfort qualities in place but also deliver the support, stability and waterproof characteristics required for golf. Through extensive testing, this balance was achieved utilizing an engineered material never before used in golf shoes, called FlexGrid.
