FootJoy have always identified themseleves with a classic and traditional golfing style. The FootJoy Icon's stand out as a timeless look, a familiar sight on course 100 years ago, that wouldn't be outdated today.

The outsole of the shoe is similar to that of the popular Pro SL shoe, using it's Tour-proven performance with a new look. The spikeless design still gives golfers optimal grip with strategic spike placement across the entire sole. The synthetic make up gives a 100% waterproof guarantee and incredibly easy to clean, making it the perfect shoe even for winter golf.
The Fuel has a Stratolite EVA midsole, which is essentially a stability bridge in the middle of the sole, providing lateral support and optimal support throughout the entire swing.
The range includes a total of 8 shoes, four mens, three ladies and a junior option. The mens come in colourway options of White/Black/Orange, White/Grey/Blue, Navy/Red/White and a White/Gray BOA.
