I just purchased a pro sl and in a clearence event at golftown. Wow they are comfortable. However, i would like to hear some feedback of long time user.

I bought them because at the end of the round, i am always in a rush to take out my golfs shoes. My footjoy dna and tw 15 feels not comfortable in my feet after 4h. Does this happen also with the pro sl? I know it sound silly but i am still looking for the most comfortable shoes. I tried some skechers but the fit wasnt right. In footjoy, the fit is perfect... when i walk around the house. So i would like to hear your experience with the pro sl please!

Thanks

These are to me the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. The only issue I see is the knobs on heel area wear down a little quicker then I would like. Great shoes !

Being made of leather, they will form to your foot after awhile.  When that happens you can hardly tell you're wearing shoes.  They are that comfortable.

I agree with Randywildman:  "These are to me the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. The only issue I see is the knobs on heel area wear down a little quicker then I would like. Great shoes !"

The heel area wore down on mine but I wear the shoes on & off the course.

This is how much I like them:  I bought 2 more pairs as backups.

I use DNAs and Pro SLs.

Love them both but the SL's are way more comfortable. I've played 36 in both and my feet were a bit sore in the DNAs but not with the SLs. They both have their place though.

DNAs seem to last longer for me, but I'll keep buying each for sure.

No.  I couldn't find a size/width that was just right.

Pro SL FTW. Have had mine for about a year now and I think they’re the most comfortable shoes I’ve owned.

I walk when I play so they log a lot of miles. They’re light enough that you don’t get tired walking in em for four hours and my feet never hurt, even after 27 holes.

I have a pair of adidas and I’ve noticed that they’re a little clunkier and I wind up having some fatigue/pain at the end of the round.

Wish I could find some more pro SL on clearance.

I have 2 pairs and I love them . Only issue i had with one pair was a small section of the tread started coming apart from the sole..I put a dab of super glue on it and it never was an issue. I walk the majority of the time and they are comfortable and stay dry during early morning rounds .

Are they more stable than the Freestyles? Those are too soft in the sole.

I haven't tried freestyles but I can say I haven't found myself wanting for more - I've found them to be a perfect balance. Great summer walking shoe

I can nearly twist Freestyles 110 degrees if I hold the heel and twist the toebox.

I was a first gen-DNA owner, and they were absolutely perfect for me feet. Wore them for 2 seasons probably 100+ rounds and never had any issues. Picked up the SLs this off-season to go a little easier on the knees with the spikeless, and have been very pleased with the comfort level. interested to see how long the soles will hold up.

I really like my Pro SL's w/ Boa. I've used them for 30 or so rounds and they are by far the best golf shoe I've ever worn.  I did just order the new Ecco Biom Hybrid 3 which I've heard are outstanding.

Love them but my silver/grey ones arenít holding up well. Cracking leather all around the shoe and look beat up. It started looking bad after 6 months of play.

They are my favorite shoe though.

Disappointing to hear that and sounds unlike typical footjoy quality.

Yeah, itís certainly disappointing and I canít send them back because I wouldnít have any golf shoes for the return process.

I feel like the quality has been disappointing lately.

Love them.  Best feedback you can get is to look at your tv during golf events, Iíve never seen a shoe worn by more golfers at any given tournament.

They seem like a great pair for pants only. If you ask me, the soles are too flat to be a “great” looking shoe for shorts

Not the case at all.  Tons of non footjoy sponsored players.  A higher % on the euro tour where Iím sure not many of those guys have shoe deals.  Also bridges the entire age spectrum of players out there.  Awesome shoe.

To add to this, even though many of the 'unknown' euro and smaller tour players might have a ball/shoe/glove/hat deal combo of some kind as is standard amongst high level ams all the way to the top, no manufacturer would specify (demand) a player wear spikeless shoes, that's always a players determination to make.

I think it's the best shoe footjoy has made since the classics dry premiere, and it seems like many who can wear anything for free (within reason)agree.

I have a pair I purchased last season. Paid full price and am happy with the quality. My pair is a half size too large which I regret a bit, but that is my fault. I keep them clean and put cedar shoe inserts in them. When it rains I play another pair (Pumas). Just bought a pair of Nike Roshe that feel even more comfortable but I don’t expect the Nikes to last long.

Very comfortable with decent stability. I still look forward to my sandals at the end of a round though!
