FootJoy has developed the next advancement in golf footwear – D.N.A. (DryJoys Next Advancement). Featuring the most comprehensive feature package ever delivered by FJ, D.N.A. footwear represents the most proven elements of the world-renowned DryJoys footwear family with all-new, cutting-edge componentry and construction methodology for the very best in performance.

“To create the most feature-laden golf shoe in our history, we needed to explore the anatomy, or DNA, of our premium footwear products and then scrutinise each and every aspect throughout the design and development process,” commented Doug Robinson, Vice President of Design and Development Worldwide. “Each material and component was carefully considered in order to deliver a shoe with lightweight stability, a custom-like fit, superior feel and ultimate performance.”

Key Features and Benefits

Tour Validation

D.N.A. has already seen validation at the highest level, as FJ brand Ambassadors Adam Scott, Webb Simpson and Jordan Spieth immediately put the performance D.N.A. golf shoe in play before the Presidents Cup.

Adam Scott has worn D.N.A. golf shoes exclusively since September, including while competing at the 2013 Presidents Cup and during his three recent wins in Australia. “D.N.A. is the most technologically advanced shoe FJ has ever produced and it embodies everything I am looking for in a golf shoe,” commented the world’s #2 ranked player. “They actually activate my feet, giving me great balance throughout my swing.”

Webb Simpson has also been wearing D.N.A. shoes since the Presidents Cup. “You want a golf shoe that is comfortable and stable, and this gives you both. The new technology in the tongue and heel collar allows the shoe to mould to your foot, giving the golfer everything they will need on the course.”

The launch of D.N.A. DryJoys Next Advancement will be supported by broadcast, print and digital advertising featuring several Tour players and an “inside” look at what makes the new D.N.A. shoe from FootJoy so unique.

AVAILABILITY: March 2014
