The new outsole configuration also features different hardness of materials to provide enhanced grip any surface – a harder TPU for on-course grip and a softer TPU for traction on firmer surfaces, making it ideal for wearing on and off the golf course. The FJ Stratos was recently named as the ‘best-in-class’ shoe in Cornell University’s recent turf grass/green friendliness testing.
Richard Fryer, FJ’s Director of Product Management, said: “A golf shoe needs to connect your foot to the surface that you’re playing on, but the clear feedback from our target consumer is that it also needs to provide exceptional comfort. Our game-changing StratoFoam midsole was designed specifically for golf, providing cloud-like comfort while absorbing and returning the most energy, which results in less foot fatigue after a round. Combined with the revolutionary VersaTrax+ outsole, the FJ Stratos delivers the best combination of uncompromising on-course traction with genuine off-course versatility and ultimate comfort.”
Offered in four colour options for men (white, grey, navy and cognac) and two for women (blue/green or silver), the FJ Stratos comes with a 12-month waterproof warranty and has an RRP of £159.99.
