FootJoy has announced it is adding the Contour Casual golf shoe to its MyJoys custom shoe program, giving its best-selling spikeless shoe an infusion of colour and personality.
If you fancy yourself a footwear designer, then the MyJoys program means you're not limited to just what you see on the store shelves. Starting with a blank canvas, you can design your golf shoes pretty much the way you'd like them to look with some 1.6 million different combinations of colour, style and design features. Available in 16 different sizes and five width options, you even have the ability to size each shoe individually.
I got the chance to design a pair and let me tell you it was no easy task given the myriad of choices. Along with the base colour of the shoe, you can also design the saddle colour, accent panels and even add a splash of colour to the laces. In addition to the dozens of colour choices, animal prints and patent leathers, you have almost 100 custom logos and flags that you can add to the heel of each shoe. Or you can add your own monogram for that one-of-a-kind signature. Here's what I finally came up with:
If you need some inspiration or just simply overwhelmed, you can tap into the MyJoys gallery of shoes previously designed and work from there.
"These shoes are an ideal option for the golfer who enjoys the convenience of wearing the same shoes from the golf course to the grill room but still demands the premium materials, comfort, style and fit that FootJoy is known for," said Mike Foley, Director of Marketing for Footwear. "With the addition to the MyJoys program, you now have the additional versatility to make them truly unique."
Introduced over a year ago, the versatile Contour Casual golf shoe utilizes super-soft premium leathers, lightweight underfoot comfort and waterproof protection. Start designing your pair at MyJoys.ca
