(RELEASE) — FootJoy, the #1 Shoe in Golf, invites you to experience the ultimate in on and off-course comfort with the all-new FJ Stratos. Featuring an unparalleled, ultra-cushioned underfoot ride, game-changing traction and super-soft leather uppers, FJ Stratos is innovative footwear that delivers next level performance and all-day comfort.
STRATOFOAM CUSHIONING SYSTEM
FJ Stratos golf shoes feature an all-new cushioning compound called StratoFoam, a proprietary foam blend that provides optimal support and comfort for conditions specific to golf, including swinging, walking and everything in between. StratoFoam is the perfect blend of cushioning, made up of a proprietary EVA/Polyolefin mixture, which helps absorb shock for maximum comfort and energy return.
“A golf shoe needs to connect your foot to the surface that you’re playing on, but the loud and clear feedback from our target consumer is that it also needs to provide exceptional comfort,” said Richard Fryer, Director of Product Management, FJ Footwear. “Our new StratoFoam midsole was designed and developed specifically for golf, providing cloud-like comfort, while absorbing and returning the most energy which results in less foot fatigue after a round of golf.”
ADVANCED VERSATRAX+ OUTSOLE
The all-new VersaTrax+ outsole is designed to provide max traction for every lie and every condition, featuring a revolutionary anti-channeling tread pattern engineered to provide total traction coverage, reducing slippage from any angle. The new outsole configuration utilizes multiple TPU compounds to grip any surface – a harder TPU for on-course grip and a softer TPU for traction on harder surfaces.
“Using a non-channeled design, we eliminate any rows of open tread pattern, allowing the shoe to always find the next traction element to catch onto the ground,” continued Fryer. “The VersaTrax+ outsole delivers the best combination of uncompromising on-course traction with genuine off-course versatility.”
The FJ Stratos innovation package results in Tour-level on-course performance and was named a top-rated, best-in-class shoe in Cornell University’s recent turf grass/green friendliness testing.
SUPER SOFT, SUPER SUPPLE
FJ Stratos uses a beautiful, soft, premium leather upper from Pittards® of England, utilizing a proprietary tanning process to achieve an ultra-luxurious, supple feel. It features an athletic-fit construction with an integrated tongue for all-around comfort and a reinforced heel for greater rear foot stability
