Who should NOT buy it
With its accommodating fit and considerably lower asking price, the FootJoy Fuel BOA ($160) is a great alternative to the Pro SL Carbon BOA. And if you want something that's unlikely to develop creases, try the Footjoy Hyperflex.
Rejoice in its stability
Reviewers in droves find the Footjoy Pro SL Carbon BOA amazingly stable. Check out these remarks for proof:
- "The lateral stability is unparalleled."
- "Super stable shoe."
- "Extremely stable."
The Pro SL Carbon BOA, according to numerous golfers, is remarkably grippy. They "provide more grip power than my other FootJoy shoes," says one of them. "The amount of grip these shoes possess cannot be overstated," says another.
Comfortable through and through
This FJ kick has quite a lot of comfort-related remarks under its belt, from "super comfort right out of the box" to "most comfortable golf shoe on the market!"
An expensive piece you'd want to buy
From its premium materials down to its professional, almost hand-made construction, the Footjoy Pro SL Carbon BOA screams top-notch quality no matter the angle. People are also drawn to its elegant dapperness, with one saying that it's "the best-looking shoe in the FJ lineup." And with that, this offering can be considered a great investment despite its super-high list price.
Tons of support in the Pro SL Carbon BOA
The ability of the Pro SL Carbon BOA to preserve one's footing is quite impressive, according to many golf players. "Excellent foot support" and "highly supportive" are two such comments that reflect people's appreciation of it.
But the better news? All this supportiveness doesn't dumb down the shoe's sensitivity. "The feel of the ground is incredible in these," says one reviewer.
Wooing with its closure system
There are those who simply can't get enough of the featured golf shoe's BOA closure. "Love the BOA system," says an experienced golfer. Another one says that its "BOA system is such a relief to operate."
The initial narrowness of the Pro SL Carbon BOA
It has been reported that the Pro SL Carbon BOA's toe section is too snug during break-in. Fortunately, it conforms to the shape of the foot after only a few holes.
Crow's feet on your kicks
The Pro SL Carbon BOA, based on a report, is prone to creasing—a problem most leather shoes have. One not-so-optimistic golf player says that it "will eventually look like crinkled tissue paper."
