FootJoy launches new D.N.A Helix golf shoes

Published

on

In May, we spotted a new pair of FootJoys on the PGA Tour. Now, we have the official details on the all-new D.N.A. Helix, golf shoes that were designed with the best golfers in the world in mind.

As their name implies, the D.N.A Helix is part of FootJoy’s D.N.A. line, which was launched in 2014. The Helix was inspired by the direct feedback of PGA Tour players who were seeking enhanced stability from a D.N.A. shoe, particularly in the heel area of the golf shoe when compared to the previous generation, the D.N.A. 2.0, FootJoy says.

In creating the D.N.A. Helix, FootJoy designed a new outsole, the NitroThin 3.0 TPU. It’s 23 percent lighter than previous D.N.A. outsoles, according to FootJoy, and it’s also wider, which contributes to the added stability of the shoes.

“I’ve worn every version of DNA and this is by far the best for me,” said Scott Stallings. “The additional support they built in, especially laterally as I move back and through the ball, is fantastic.”

FootJoy says the D.N.A. Helix is 38 percent more stable than its predecessor, an improvement that was achieved, in part, by increasing the width between the heel spike receptacles of the shoes by 13 percent. To improve lateral stability, a new fit-bed (an insert) was developed. The company’s “3D FoamCollar 2.0” was also added to improve support, comfort and fit.

The D.N.A. Helix ($209.99 with laced, $239.99 with Boa) are made with ChromoSkin leather from Pittards and come with a two-year waterproof warranty. They use low-profile SoftSpikes Pulsar cleats and are available in three colorways (laced: white/red/blue, white/silver and black). The Boa model is available in one colorway (white/black).

    My Adidas 360 Tour shoes are going on 8 years and are in perfect shape. No need to even look for something else.

    These will be awesome in comparison to the PXG line coming out. Shoes will range from $750-$2,000. Then we’ll be begging for mediocre shoes under $250.

    I dig the old icon saddle shoes and wingtips, they are classic golf shoes. Everything else footjoy makes is old man ugly. Seriously. Cranky old man ugly shoes. They need to get with the times. These shoes are hideous.

    It would not be difficult for the new version to be more stable in the heel. I had the first version, they were terrible, the least waterproof shoe I have ever had, slipped loads in the heel and to top it off a hole appeared in the side of the shoe a week after the warranty expired. They also made such a mess of the greens in the winter.

    Only a two year waterproof warranty? That must be how long it takes for the cheap glue to fail and the sole separates from the upper.

      Last longer then the cheap “water resistant” shoes you wear. Name one brand that guarantees waterproofing for longer than 2 years? So many other brands shoes don’t even have guaranteed waterproofing.

        Maybe not more than 2 yr, but its pretty easy to find Ecco World Class shoes for $250 CAN. Going to last you a lot longer as well!

Have you ever bought the same club twice? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been talking about occasions they have purchased a club for the second time.

WRXer ‘Stimpmeter3’ is tempted to pull the trigger on a fairway wood he once owned and has reached out to members for their experiences on doing similar, with more having bought the same club twice than you may have thought!

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • phizzy30: “I’ve done it once. I fell in love with the FT-9 TA back in the day and had to have a backup. I ended up gaming both. They were both 9* but one had the DI, the other had the Motore Speeder TS.”
  • pheenomz4774: “iBlades. Bought them three times in the 7 years they’ve been around. If I can find another set in great condition, it’ll be four times.”
  • Doucer: “Sold a 2014 Scotty Fastback to a guy on Kijiji. Regretted it as soon as I sold it. Searched for a couple of years to find another one and found one listed on Kijiji. It was the same guy, so I bought it back. Cost me $100 more!”
  • jwadds19: “Sold my set of MP57s to a former boss a number of years ago, then bought the exact set back (unknowingly at the time) from his son last year.”
