Footjoy Classic Dry Golf Shoes
Hand-made in the U.S.A., FootJoy Classics Dry Premiere golf shoes feature premium calfskin, which provides superior beauty, comfort and softness along with outstanding durability and resistance to stretching.
The purchase of this shoe really is dicated on whether the majority of your golf is played walking or riding the course. At first the shoe was very stiff after walking a few rounds. They never really felt as if they became broken in. Also, per Footjoy's instructions, I meticulously applied waterproofing, shoe oils, post play cleaning instructions, etc.... The non "dry" models hold water like a sponge and begin to feel like concrete boots after a wet round. You feet and legs will hurt in damp conditions. In dry conditions they are fine and comfortable but still heavy compared to less expensive, lighter brands. Keep this in mind. Also after spending so much I feel almost obliged not to scatch them or or get them dirty. Upkeep is time consuming. Find somebody at your club to keep them in shape.
I initially liked the aesthetics, classic look and overall quality of shoe. If there were one item of golf equipment I wouldn't want to skimp on I thought it would be shoes.
Shoes were heavier and required higher maintenance than I anticipated.
