What they say:

 

FootJoy FURY is engineered and designed to provide ultimate athletic performance. Designed from the inside-out, FJ FURY features the proprietary TruFit system, providing stability where you need it and comfort where you want it.

 

Technology:

 

*Full grain leather and mesh upper with TPU Flex Layer – Very lightweight, breathable and waterproof. The TPU Flex Layer is liquid-metal inspired and provides heel to toe flexibility

 

*Fit Sleeve - Located inside the shoe, it is a soft, stretch one-piece sleeve that provides a secure fit with no tongue slippage

 

*FlexGrid MLC Cage - Located on the sides of the upper, it adds structure and locks in the foot, offering lateral support

 

*D3 traction system with low profile Pulsar cleats - Consists of permanent traction ridges/lugs that combine with 9 removable spikes. These Pulsar spikes bring you closer to the ground for better feel

 

*Fine Tuned Foam (FTF) midsole - Comfort and cushioning in the midsole

 

*OrthoLite Impressions FitBed - Comprised of Open Cell PU Foam, which maintains its mechanical properties and cushion throughout the life of the shoe. FitBed is also comprised of Impressions Foam that essentially takes an impression of your foot, providing a custom fit

 

*Laser Plus Last - Full rounded toe, standard forefoot and instep, and slightly narrow heel

What we say:

 

Wow!. We're speechless. We know that FootJoy has been around forever, and always produces high quality shoes, but the FootJoy FURY is on another level. We can confidently say that it is our new favorite golf shoe, period. The FJ FURY's comfort is out of this world. Its innovative fit bed and awesome midsole combine to create perhaps the most comfortable golf shoe ever. Do take note that the Fit Sleeve takes up a bit more room inside the shoe, which means you may want to go for the wide option. This Fit Sleeve and the FlexGrid Cage provide amazing lateral support during the swing, and the traction system eliminates any chance of slipping. This is great because the FJ FURY is the best year-round golf shoe available, offering top-notch waterproofing while also avoiding overheating. For a golf shoe with all of this technology, its price of around $160/$170 is more than fair. Basically what we're saying is that you can't go wrong witht the FURY, particularly advanced golfers who can really appreciate its performance.
