The most noteworthy advance in the second-generation Hyperflex shoe is what FootJoy officials describe as a reimagined BioMorph exoskeleton upper. It is designed to mimic the ligaments of the foot and help better control that body part during the swing as it also provides lightweight support and enhanced flexibility.
The material used in the upper also is made to provide greater comfort and cushioning, while a breathable membrane is guaranteed to be waterproof for two years.
“With the new BioMorph upper, our goal was to strike a balance between structure and flexibility and deliver those benefits in the exact locations they’re needed,” said Doug Robinson, vice president of golf footwear at FootJoy. “We accomplished this by studying the physiology of the human foot and building an upper that works in unison with the musculature and tendons of the foot to give golfers a shoe that will move when they need it to and provide support when they need it.”
Robinson and his group also endowed the Hyperflex II with FineTunedFoam 2.0 so that the midsole is softer and lighter than the one employed in the original. In addition, an OPS, for Optimized Performance Stabilizer, is intended to give golfers support and motion control towards the heel.
As for the outsole, Robinson says it is equipped with Tornado cleats by SoftSpikes and engineered to work with a thin TPU so that players enjoy more “flexible and durable underfoot traction.”
