What we say:

 

We are absolute suckers for sleek, classic designs, and the FootJoy Premiere Series - Flint is precisely what gets us excited. A golf shoe can look as good as it wants, but without solid performance, it's not very useful. Luckily, the Premiere Series - Flint focuses equally on aesthetics and performance. Classic style golf shoes aren't always the most comfortable, however, the FJ Flint boasts awesome comfort with its soft sheepskin linings and innovative footbed. The Pittards leather is a touch more breathable than synthetic leathers, and is solidly waterproof, which makes this FJ shoe great for year-round play. What's quite unique about the FJ Premiere Series Flint is its spikeless traction. While most classic golf shoes have spiked traction, the FJ Flint offers FootJoy's newest spikeless traction system, which grips amazingly on all surfaces and allows the shoe to be worn on and off the course. All of these high quality materials and technology aren't cheap, but you definitely get what you pay for in this case. We recommend the FJ Premiere Series Flint for the fashion-conscious golfer who values on-course elegance and high-quality performance.
