Are you wearing the wrong shoe? After identifying that around 70% of golfers are wearing the wrong size shoes, footjoy has launched their own Shoe Fitting Programme!

FJ has identified that around 70% of golfers are wearing the wrong size shoes. Their Shoe Fitting Programme educates on the benefits of having the correct fitting shoes - as research revealed your swing can suffer!

Research has proven that the wrong size shoes can lead to a loss of up to 28% of the power generated during the swing and the right fit also means that shoes last considerably longer compared to pairs that are too big.

Over the course of the year, FJ’s expert Fitting and Sales Representatives, James Bradford, Lewis G Mackle and Sam Allen, will visit golfing venues across the country to take golfers through the process of finding the correct size and best-suited FJ shoe model.

Already underway, York Golf Club was one of the first this year to have a FJ Shoe Fitting Day. Club Professional, Mark Rogers, remarked: “Being a pro-active Club Professional, I regularly have demo or custom fit days and, when I had the opportunity to stage a shoe fitting day, I jumped at the chance as I appreciated this was something my members and customers would enjoy. It was a great success and everyone enjoyed their experience."

FJ’s fitters will find the most suitable footwear for every golfer from the abundance of performance-driven styles, offered in more sizes and widths than any other manufacturer. FJ shoes are available in sizes ranging from 3 to 16 and widths from extra narrow to extra extra wide.

Further customisation is offered through FJ’s exclusive MyJoys programme, where golfers in the UK can build their own shoes from around 8 million design combinations, including choosing differently sized left and right shoes.
