What we say:

 

The FootJoy Tour-S BOA is arguably the brand's most technologically progressive golf shoe ever. The main talking point is the PowerPlate outsole technology, which essentially increases the surface area, providing extra grip and stability. Impressively, this isn't just words, and actually does improve traction and overall stability. Add the PowerPods to the mix, and you have a golf shoe with some of the best traction out there. With amazing support as well, it's no wonder that FootJoy has openly marketed this particular shoe to high-level golfers. The Tour-S BOA isn't cheap, and thus it is mostly recommended for advanced golfers who can appreciate the stability it offers. It's essentially the same shoe as the Tour-S, except it has the BOA fastening system, which adds that extra bit of custom fit.
