FootJoy Icon Black Golf Shoe Review

    The Icon Black golf shoes are part of FootJoy’s Icon Range and they come with a hefty price tag of $350. However, there are moments in life when you really need to make a statement and Icon Black represents just that: a declaration that you have exquisite taste and you’ll have the best or nothing.

    FootJoy did a great job with these golf shoes, proving once again that they’re among the best in the world in terms of R&D and state of the art engineering.

    Introduced earlier in February of 2015, these ultra premium golf shoes are aimed at golfers looking for high performance and classic design, both in the same package.

    Luxury and ergonomics were taken to the next level by FootJoy with the Icon Black as they managed to incorporate their latest technologies and design along with a fine selection of premium materials, creating the ultimate golfing shoes.
    Given the price tag, Icon Black features a high quality leather upper made of premium calfskin, which gives the shoe a high end appearance and also makes it waterproof. The insoles are leather lined and they’re designed for providing you with a comfy fit, thanks to the strategically placed cushioning.

    One of the most important upgrades consists of a new outsole, now having a stacked leather heel with leather inserts for improved traction and, why not, style. FootJoy also created a new last, which makes these shoes unparalleled in terms of comfort.

    If you want to change the spikes on your golfing shoes, you’d be delighted to use Icon Black’s fast twist cleat system; the cleats feature a 16 component design which provides the player with unmatched balance and stability, especially during his swing. FootJoy uses Golf Pulsar cleats made by SoftSpikes.
    The Icon Black golf shoes are available in two versions: T-Toe Dress design (Black/Black, Tan/Cappuccino) and Split Toe Saddle (White/Ivory, White/Black).
