What we say:

 

The FootJoy D.N.A. Helix BOA took everything good from the D.N.A. and improved on the weak areas, resulting in a fantastic golf shoe. Sure, it's expensive, but you do get a lot. Not only does it look great, but it's very, very comfortable and can be worn year-round. The D.N.A. Helix BOA is definitely geared towards low handicap golfers with it's high price and great performance. The FootJoy BOA closure system is one of our favorites, with the dial located at the heel. It really does feel like the foot is being pulled down and back, creating the perfect fit.
