FootJoy officials say the three-layered outsole of the new Pro/SL and its use of a lighter-weight polymer called Fine-Tuned Foam is what sets the shoe apart from other entrants in the performance spikeless category.
The top layer of the Pro/SL outsole is the one that cradles the foot, and it features a softer blend of FTF, for greater comfort. As for the lower and outer portion, it boasts a type of FTF that is firmer and designed to bolster perimeter stability for maximum support. In addition, the embedding of skeletal strips within those FTF layers is made to enhance that stability as it also improves traction.
“FTF is material that took years to develop and even longer to determine what shoe construction could truly unlock its benefits,” says Doug Robinson, vice president of golf footwear worldwide for FootJoy. “The Pro/SL utilizes two densities of FTF within the outsole construction and is married to a waterproof upper that features multimaterial construction for a perfect balance of comfort and performance.”
According to Robinson, a number of tour professionals are using Pro/SL in competition, among them Adam Scott, Louis Oosthuizen, Lee Westwood and Andrew “Beef” Johnston.
