What the company says: For fans of the FootJoy Hyperflex and Freestyle families, there is good and bad news. First, the bad: Those categories are gone. Now, the good: FootJoy has combined the best elements from both to create the Fury, and athletic-infused golf shoe that offers all-around comfort and stability.
One problem with the Hyperflex was stability. The Fury addresses that using the TruFit System, which includes an Inner Fit Sleeve for a secure fit and a FlexGrid MLC cage that adds structure to the leather upper. Freestyle was comfortable, but didn't fully deliver from a performance standpoint. The Fury offers improved comfort, partly from its OrthoLite Impressions FitBed that molds to the foot much like the cork fitbed found in FJ's 1957 dress shoes, while including performance features such as the Dual Density TPU outsole and Dynamic Low profile Pulsar Cleats.
The Fury is already being put into play by PGA Tour players, including new staffer Nick Watney, Stewart Cink, Rafa Cabrera Bello and Scott Stallings.
"Early responses from Tour players is that they're surprised by two things, how comfortable it is and how stable it is," said Keith Duffy, FJ's senior product manager of golf footwear.
