I really like the black on white ones, need a new pair of black on white shoes and those very well could be the ones!

Anyone know if these are any good for hot feet? I always walk and finding a lot of modern golf shoes bake my feet.

Playing in the UK means that often damp grass about so would still like something semi-waterproof at least. I have been using Biodrive leather but find these get really hot on a warm day.

Thanks in advance.

They are a bit warm since they are full leather.   I feel like waterproof and breathability are hard to find unless you are looking at gore tex

I agree that the only ones that don't look like bowling shoes are the ones that are a solid color throughout.  I was a much bigger fan of the FJ DryJoys Casuals.

Looks like some new color releases being worn at Augusta:  Black heel, no BOA; silver heel with BOA, blue heel only.  See Adam Scott, Charlie Hoffman, and Danny Willet in Tuesday pictures at Augusta.

Wonder if these are to be released at retail in the near future.  Didn't [we] also see a brown saddle in the PGA merchandise show pics?

New colors coming June 1st.  The white/black/red BOA is exclusive to Europe and won't be seen over here in the US.

I'm in Asia where its hot, humid and can be very wet. I've Ecco's which are great in the dry, Adidas Boost which are great in all weathers and no sweaty feet. Tomorrow morning will be my first walking round in the FJ's, weather is here is currently wet and hot so I will let you know how they are. I suffer from sweaty feet so finding shoes that are comfortable to walk 18 holes in average temps of 30 degree C whilst being waterproof is high on the list.

These are comfortable and water proof whilst walking, and considering we are having 30 + degrees C temperatures here my feet are not sweaty. They are not as comfortable as Ecco spikeless shoes, but then they are like wearing slippers.

I just got these in the mail. I had to order them from Europe. They are EU only.

To me, they are the best looking color combination (I'm also an Auburn guy).

I'm surprised Dufner hasn't played in them yet.

Those are awesome!  Hope they become available in the US.  I'm a Denver Bronco fan so these could be the play!

Shipping is around $25 but had them in-hand in about 10 days. Awesome shoes.

What they really need to do is make a spikeless version of the dryjoy tour. I'd buy all four colors immediately.

Bag is currently under construction.

i just ordered the White/Black/Red BOA from JustShopOk and they emailed me saying they would have my size (10.5 UK, 11.5 US) by May 1st or sooner to ship to me.
I love the BOA, but hate the gold color that we have in the US. I think the European version is the best looking model out there.

Does anyone have any other experience with JustShopOk?

From my online chat with a footjoy rep, new colors coming June 1 are white/black, white/light brown, and white/navy/orange.  So it looks like those Cheesehead42 ordered from Europe will be coming to the US.  I'll be picking up the white/navy/orange for sure (I'm an Auburn guy too).

I'm at a piont of changing shoes...bought a oair of Ecco Biom Hybrid 2 last September, but they are just killing my heels...no round without blisters...

Looking at the Pro/SL now since I really liked the spikeless and was curious on some user feedback...

Only reviews I could find were with heavy FJ sponsord contrnt and therefore of little use...

Also, how is the durability of the spikes on the Pro/SL?

Not planning to walk miles of the course...but don't wantbto be forced to change out a pair of shoes after 3/4 of the season...

Even though i eventually went with the Hyperflex, the Pro/SL were a serious consideration of mine. I really enjoyed the fit and comfort. Just wasn't sure about the spike durability.

I have the dryjoy casual (the 1st version of the pro sl) and the spikes are still in great shape, but I do t wear them to the store or anything like that.  But they have held up well for multiple seasons
