A high performance, modern technology
shoe, with a subtle and refined, classic-
looking saddle of yesteryear. I love these
shoes. And there isn’t a more worn shoe
throughout the PGA Tour.
Any camera angle can reveal the
FootJoy logo on the outside sole of the heel
wedge. The FJ
Icon is a premium shoe and it comes
with a premium cost, but it’s overly
comfortable, light enough to compete with the
sportier sneaker-like shoes of present day,
but with timeless styling.
FootJoy's popular and timeless
FJ Icon ready to be personalized.
The base version retails for $289.99 and
the My Joys customization will be priced at
$310.00 for a design your own, or $320.00 for
NCAA team logo. I played major collegiate
golf and have an affinity for my school. To
honor my school’s logo on the outside heel of
the shoe, and in several different color
options, is priceless. I get to wear a top level
tour shoe personalized to my liking. And
despite the costs, I was so enamored with
these shoes, the comfort, quality, stability,
and durability, that I have three pairs. White
with white saddle. White with red saddle.
White with black saddle. My biggest dilemma,
apart from color coordination, is choosing
which ones to wear.
I honestly cannot think of wearing
another shoe. Think of your favorite casual
loafers that are a must-go with almost
everything you wear. That’s what this shoe
embodies. The customization is not limited to
NCAA offerings, but also includes MLB and
Alliances such as the Folds of Honor. There
are many ways to personalize it - your logo,
your initials, and without doubt there is only
one FJ Icon.
