FootJoy’s new Tour X shoe combines technologies that feature in three of its Tour-proven models – the Tour-S, DNA and Fury – and amplifies them with the latest performance technologies and materials to achieve the most feature-laden performance shoe in the company’s history.
Richard Fryer, FJ’s Director Of Footwear Product Management, said: “Feedback from tour and consumers told us that they loved the unmatched stability from the PowerPlate outsole and PowerStrap of Tour-S, but craved soft supple leather they experienced in DNA, and the underfoot comfort in Fury. So we combined all three and turbo-charged it with the latest technology to create the ultimate hybrid performance shoe. And Tour X was born.”
Already put into play on tour by brand ambassadors Rafa Cabrerra Bello and Kevin Kisner, the Tour X shoe, boasts the following key design features:
PowerPlate Outsole with Launch Pod technology
The most stable outsole in FJ’s range – full TPU PowerPlate outsole – 9 Launch Pods provide stability and increased surface area coverage – Bold Tour X graphic underfoot.
PowerStrap system to provide midfoot control
TPU strap provides medial and lateral midfoot support – super soft, supple and waterproof ChromoSkin leather by Pittards – reinforced top Power Eyelets locks your foot into place.
Comfort technologies that wrap your foot in cushioning and control
Ortholite Impressions FitBed for the ultimate comfort inside – comfortable 3D molded collar – Tour-spec stretch tongue provides comfort and breathability.
