When you think of lightweight construction and great feel in golf equipment, you would be forgiven to believe you are talking about a driver or a putter. Truth is, FootJoy have brought those qualities to the new FootJoy M:PROJECT shoe.
Built on the philosophy that minimum construction produces maximum feel, the lightweight M:PROJECT is available in either a spikeless or cleated version in a variety of colours.
Russell Lawes, from FootJoy, explains: "M:PROJECT is an exciting new category for FootJoy and the result of years of in-depth testing and research to deliver an incredibly lightweight and athletic shoe that gives golfers maximum feel and flexibility when they step out onto the golf course."
Already used by Hunter Mahan in competition, the M:SPEC leather used in the shoe is designed to offer thin-yet-strong qualities allowing players to use a full range of motion with plenty of flexibility and comfort. A MP:627 last and ProTekt toe guard have been developed by FootJoy's R&D team. The last creates a generous forefoot shape designed to allow a golfer's toes to spread and grip the ground, whilst the toe guard resists abrasion.
One of the key aspects of the FootJoy M:PROJECT is how close it brings a player's feet to the ground. This may sound strange for a shoe, but the truth is that all the design and technology in the M:PROJECT is created to offer the ultimate in low-profile performance. Softspikes even created exclusive Stealth spikes for the cleated version.
In addition to the spikeless or cleated versions, the M:PROJECT is also available in a mesh version (see blue shoe on left) and a BOA option (see top shoe in group photo on left), featuring FootJoy's innovative heel-dial lacing system that provides a consistent non-slip fit.
