Who should buy the Footjoy Pro SL Sport

The Pro SL Sport drops the leather upper of the OG version in favor of lightweight mesh. Buy it if:

  • You want an extra-grippy, bang-for-your-buck pair without going the spiked route.
  • Golf shoes that can be mistaken for stylish dressy kicks are what you prefer.
  • You want to be as prepared as you can be for warm and semi-humid conditions.

Who should not buy it

If you got broad feet, skip the Pro SL Sport for the Footjoy Fuel instead, particularly the wide variant. Also, with no squeaking issues, the Footjoy Flex is a fantastic alternative for the featured golf shoe.

A joy on the weight front

Numerous golf players find the Footjoy Pro SL Sport, whose weight is 340 g apiece, impressively light. An expert among them says that, compared with the OG model (400 g), this kick is "significantly lighter." Another reviewer says that it has the "benefits of the regular Pro SLs but lighter."

It's also worth noting that the featured kick is 85 g lighter than the average weight of Footjoy golf shoes.

The somewhat-restrictive toe zone of the Footjoy Pro SL Sport

There are those who find the Pro SL Sport a tad narrow around the toe box. The shoe's tapered construction makes toe twists feel more focused at the expense of wiggle room around the forefoot.

Superb balance in every pair

Reviewers are floored by the Footjoy Pro SL Sport's excellent stability. This quality may be linked to the shoe's pronounced diamond-shaped sole unit construction.

But it squeaks

It has been reported that the Pro SL Sport squeaks. An experienced golf player is disappointed in all this, as the issue in question has always been a Footjoy problem, saying that it's something "they need to fix" but have yet to.
