The Footjoy XPS-1 (Xtreme Platform Stability) golf shoe has been designed to improve platform stability and improve balance.
Footjoy's XtremeOutsole design combines TPU lateral side outriggers, a Lightweight Fiberglass Support Structure and Footjoy's HeelLoc Zone. The TPU outriggers extend beyond the upper sole to deliver an ultra-wide platform for maximum ground contact. The added Support Structure provides a lateral and medial wrap to support a golfer's mid-foot and the HeelLoc Zone is designed to provide Anti-slip technology in the heel area of the XPS-1.
The FJ XPS-1 provides a custom fit and innovative 3D Viscoelastic GelCollar, whilst a LaserPlus Last is formed specifically to match the shape of a golfer's foot. The XPS-1 is further enhanced by a Multi-Density Fit-Bed and EVA insert designed to improve cushioning and shock absorption.
"XPS-1 is an exciting new addition to the FootJoy family and forms part of an all-encompassing 2012 collection that is our strongest to date. Regarded as the leader in high-performance footwear, golfers expect a certain standard from FJ golf shoes. With XPS-1, we have taken technology prowess to an unprecedented level. Almost every golfer who took part in rigorous testing of XPS-1 reported that they felt a greater sense of stability, overall controlled balance and were able to strike the ball with greater confidence,” commented Russell Lawes, European Marketing Manager.
