How do these compare to the dryjoy casual from 2016?  I have 4 pair of the casual brand new and have 2 pair of the Pro S/L that are brand new as well.  I love the feel of the casual just wondering how the two models compare.

Tried the Nike Lunar Control Vapor yesterday and am in doubt now... anyone compared these to the Pro/SL's?

LCVs fit true to size and the SLs fit half a size big. Both are really good but out of the box the LCVs are comfier

Anyone know if they will discount come June 1st when the new colors come out? If unlikely I'll just pull the trigger this week.

I used to rent shoes like that when I went bowling. Is FJ trying to break into the PBA?

To each their own.  In my opinion these look ten times better than the crap that Nike, puma and others have been spewing out.  Not to mention they are incredibly comfortable.

These are the #1 shoe worn by footjoy golfers on tour, footjoy must be on to something.  

But if they ever want to reach out to the public for someone's opinion I'll let them know to ask ed who likes to post his thoughts in threads where no one actually asks what he thinks of them.

I have a pair of Puma Club 917's that have really lasted well for the last few years. They are excellent quality. I nearly bought a new pair of Pumas but couldn't find the right model in my size. When I went to the local Golf Galaxy they had the SL Pros there. I tried a number of shoes including the Adidas Tour 360 Boost and the UnderArmour Titan Tours. The SL was hands down the most comfortable with excellent arch support. As far as style is concerned they are a bit strange as they seem a bit between classic and cutting age new. The black looks best in my opinion, but I don't wear a lot that would go with black so well right now. So I got the white and blue. Waiting for the rain to stop to put them to the test. Will report back if they do not live up to the hype. I do see a boat load of pros wearing them right now. Features that I like include a spikeless shoe that seems very supportive but light, and with two year water proof. Hard to beat combo. Only issue is the cost.

No one seems to have anything new up on their sites.

Anyone have a problem with the quality and/or durability? The little tabs on the back of a pair of mine have come apart as has several of the eyelets for the laces. The sole has stood up fairly well, but the rest of the shoe looks like I wore it to war.

Does footjoy.com no longer have live chat?  

I checked with TGW and Golf Galaxy online, neither knew anything about the new colors that are being released today for these.  Then I looked at the Footjoy Twitter account and see they posted a new tv ad which has the new colors included in it.  I will try to swing by my local Golf Galaxy sometime in the next couple of days and see if they have them or know anything about them.

I'm guessing somewhere between 30-50. Not a lot for me.

Talked to a FJ rep, and he said the latest info he has is that the new colors will likely be released for distribution the week of the US Open..  so week after next it looks like.

I love these shoes! I have the navy/orange pair that I got from Europe several months ago and paid out the nose for.

Hopefully some 14's make it long enough to hit the sale rack so I can stock up.

I was waiting until the new colors hit the store, as I really wanted to see them in person...  but after multiple trips to Golf Galaxy and them not having them, I went ahead and ordered the White/Orange/Navy.  Hopefully they'll be here by the weekend.

How is the leather in the toe box with these?
My 2015 Dryjoy Casuals are fairly poor, just couldn't stop the creasing.
Looking at the Ecco Biom Hybrid as a new shoe because a friend has had a pair for 2/3 years and the toe box has only minor creasing without any major looking after.

Late to the game on this post.. The FJ Pro SL is the only show I am wearing now.. I have two pairs and can't say enough about them.. Extremely comfortable and very stable. No problem with slipping. Makes my knees feel so much better after a round.. Spikes shoes used to bother me by about the 13-14 hole.. After 7 knee surgeries over the years between both knees these are a godsend for me..

Tried a pair of the sl's on the other day and they felt liked they lacked cushion, and not just a little bit.  Maybe it's just my foot.  Tried on a pair of Nikes and it was a world of difference.

Definitely one of the better shoes FJ has come up with lately in terms of style and comfort, however I still prefer my Biom 2 hybrids for comfort.

Got some as part of our Member Guest tournament and I have to say I was impressed.  FJ tends to be very narrow for me, and I dont have a wide foot.  These seem to be more spacious throughout the forefoot and toe box.  The Pro SL is very stable and my feet feel great after every round.  I have already ordered another pair in one of the new colors.  

I will agree that some nike shoes feel like they have more cushion, but I have had no issues with comfort thus far.

Love these Pro/SL's with the BOA system. I have the white/gold colorway and I just ordered the white/red boa colorway from the UK.
