Fans of FootJoy should begin celebrating today after the brand revealed an extension to one of its most popular ranges with the introduction of the Icon Black golf shoe.
For golfers seeking ultimate performance with a twist of classic styling, FootJoy’s Icon Black shoes are nothing short of incredible.
Frequent wearers of FootJoy shoes will know that the Icon range is now only available through the MyJoys customisation programme.

It’s a move sure to go down very well with FootJoy fans.
A key feature and upgrade is the new outsole, which has a stacked leather look in the heel and offers genuine leather inserts to better enhance both traction and stylish appeal.
These are of course premium golf shoes, and that fact is rammed home perfectly with the addition of the having leather uppers made with the finest calfskin throughout to produce luxurious look, feel and outstanding waterproof protection.
Russell Lawes, FJ’s Marketing Manager, said of the Icon Black golf shoes: “Everyone at FootJoy is very excited to unveil Icon Black to UK golfers and we have no doubt that they will strike a chord with the aspirational player seeking premium quality in their next footwear purchase.”
And with leather-lined insoles shaped from the new last to create a comfier sung fit, combined with strategically placed areas of addition cushioning for the foot, it’s hard to argue those points.
