What we say:

 

The FootJoy TOUR-S Dual BOA is arguably the brand's most technologically progressive golf shoe ever. The main talking point of this golf shoe is the dual BOA closure system. This is the first for a golf shoe, and it really makes a noticeable difference. It pulls the foot back, eliminating heel slippage, while at the same time the other dial tightens the other part of the shoe. It is essentially the most custom fitting shoe out there. The other main talking point is the PowerPlate outsole technology, which 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 Dual BOA isn't cheap, and thus it is mostly recommended for advanced golfers who can appreciate the stability it offers.
