FootJoy is selling 2,106 pairs of all-black “Jimmy Walker HyperFlex II” shoes

Published

In the world of golf, the color black belongs to Gary Player, known appropriately as “The Black Knight.” But there’s another golfer who’s had success donning all-black: Jimmy Walker, who won the 2016 PGA Championship at Baltusrol Golf Club wearing a monochromatic, black outfit from hat to shoes.

To commemorate Walker’s victory, FootJoy released 2,106 pairs of “Jimmy Walker Black HyperFlex II” golf shoes that are selling for $159.99.

“Jimmy Walker is a tremendous ambassador for the FootJoy brand,” says
Keith Duffy, Senior Product Manager, Footwear. “We wanted to help him
celebrate his huge Major win last year with a very limited run of 2,106
pair of Hyperflex II Blacked-Out shoes. What better way to complete his
preferred head-to-toe all-black look?”

Like the standard HyperFlex II golf shoes, the all-black Jimmy Walkers have “FlexGrid 3.0” technology, which means they’re made with BioMorph material and athletic mesh for a soft feel and waterproofing. They also have Fine-Tuned Foam for cushioning and stability, “Laser Plus Fit” so the shoes have a rounded toe and a narrow heel, and “Extreme N.E.O. (Next Evolutionary Outsole) Traction” in the sole, equipped with Tornado Cleats by Softspikes.

“I really like the athletic styling, comfort and support I get in
my HF2’s” said Jimmy Walker. “I liked the black-and-white version, but I
just had to have the blacked out ones made up to test out — and they came
out awesome.”

The Jimmy Walker HyperFlex II shoes are currently available on FootJoy.com and at select retailers globally.

    I for one would rather Footjoy go back to making Classics. These new styles are a little childish.

    They’re selling on the footjoy website for $159.99

    I’d rather have any of the DNA shoes over these any day.

    What is the significance of 2106? Do you think it was supposed to be 2016?

    Never understood why they stopped making the FJ Classics. They make these mess instead? Rough.

    Doubtful there are even 2,106 people on Earth who could pick Jimmy Walker out of a lineup

      That’s why he wears all black, so people won’t mistake him for Kevin Chappel, Sean O’Hair, Adam Hadwin, Grayson Murray, Cody Gribble, Brendan Steel, or Huson Swafford
