What they say:

 

FJ Stratos with STRATOFOAM, a proprietary cushioning system engineered from a unique compound blend that allows each shoe to absorb shock and return energy. The main benefit of energy return is that, each shoe works for you, which can help reduce foot fatigue after a round of golf. Unlike other competitive shoes that use cushioning systems for running, resulting in high impact construction, FJ Stratos golf shoes are specifically tuned for golf/walking.

 

Technology:

 

*Plush NappaLuxe leather upper - Classy look and comfortable

*StratoFoam cushioning - Midsole cushioning specifically developed for walking/golf. It maximizes underfoot comfort while providing optimal energy return to reduce underfoot fatigue throughout the round

*Lane last - offers a full rounded toe character with a full fit across the forefoot which allows toes to spread and grip

*VersaTrax+ outsole - Engineered with traction elements to create an outsole that is perfect for on course performance with wear-to-the-course versatility. Translucent rubber traction elements offer a high end look and feel while maximizing traction with each step you take. The unique anti-channeling traction pattern is designed for grip from any lie or angle. Consists of both hard and soft TPU traction, ensuring maximum grip on every surface

What we say:

 

The FootJoy Stratos is one of FJ's higher-end golf shoes that looks and feels great. It is made of high-quality NappaLuxe leather, which adds that element of style and luxury. This genuine leather is also more durable than synthetic leather and slightly more breathable. Not to mention that real leather just looks classy. The FJ Stratos is great for year-round play, as it's guaranteed to keep your feet dry for two years, and as we just said, won't overheat too much in hot conditions. Aside from its versatility and style, the standout feature of the Stratos is its traction system. We have seen the VersaTrax outsole on other FJ golf shoes and absolutely love it. It grips perfectly on the golf course and is also good for walking.. We also appreciate how FJ created a midsole specifically for walking and golfing, although we don't think it necessarily feels all that different to other midsole systems. We recommend the FootJoy Stratos for those who don't mind splashing cash for something ultra classy.
