What they say:

 

Made Fitter. Faster. More Comfortable. We’ve taken the #1 performance spikeless shoe on tour back to the drawing board and made the best even better. The new FJ Pro/SL Carbon features a new additional carbon insert, strategically placed to increase rear-foot stability and energy return with every step, combined with all new Stratofoam midsole cushioning for maximum comfort.

 

Technology:

 

*Premium ChromoSkin leather upper - Lightweight, soft, durable and waterproof

 

*Infinity outsole - TPU traction that is comprised of permanent lugs/nubs and ridges. It boasts 189 points of traction and 17% more surface area in the heel

*Carbon inserts - Located in the heel, increase rear-foot stability and energy return

*STRATOFOAM midsole - Unparalleled comfort/cushioning

*FTF foam - Combines with STRATOFOAM midsole to deliver maximum perimeter stability and soft underfoot cushioning and balance

*ORTHOLITE IMPRESSIONS Fit-Bed - Delivers a custom fit and awesome underfoot cushioning

 

*Integrated Power Harness - Delivers medial and lateral support for max control and power

*3D Molded Collar - Enhanced overall fit through the ankle and extra cushioning

 

What we say:

 

We're really happy that FootJoy has continued the Pro/SL line for as long as they have. Each successive model just gets better and better. Especially the Pro/SL Carbon models, as they add that extra bit of rebound/energy return and stability. This newest FootJoy Pro/SL Carbon model is one of the most comfortable golf shoes out there. The newest foam/cushioning technologies combine to create a perfect balance of soft cushioning, rebound and stability. We love how FJ has kept the high standard of waterproofing in the newest Pro/SL Carbon model. You can wear this shoe in harsh conditions without a problem. It also holds up ok in hot conditions, which makes it pretty ideal for year-round play. The spikeless traction system in this newest Pro/SL Carbon model is pretty much the same as the previous model, which grips extremely well on the course, yet feels excellent when walking as well. We've always been a huge fan of the power harness in Pro/SLs, which adds that extra bit of lateral and medial stability. We recommend the FJ Pro/SL Carbon for the advanced golfer who can appreciate all the performance and comfort on offer.
