Profile of the Footjoy ARC SL

Footjoy is one of the brands that stepped early in the golf footwear game. That way, it has developed a deep understanding of how a shoe should be. One of its spikeless releases, the FJ ARC SL, possesses qualities that are needed by players when putting on the driving range or greens. 

The ARC, as it is attached to the shoe name, is one of the highlighted features. It stands for Advanced Responsive Cushion, a revolutionary technology, unique to Footjoy footwear. It is designed to provide both comfort and high energy return. But the midsole would be for nothing if not for the other advancements like the DuraTrax outsole and waterproof upper.


This Footjoy model spotlights a spikeless bottom infused with a technology called the DuraTrax TPU Outsole. This innovation was designed to encourage traction while bringing stability in different types of terrain. The shape of each lug is slightly pointed to ensure easy maintenance and green-friendliness.


Compressed by the outsole and upper is the spotlight of the shoe, the Advanced Responsive Cushion (ARC) technology. The cushioning technology delivers exceeding comfort and energy return when traversing the roughs and fairways.


The upper part of the spikeless Footjoy ARC is dressed in synthetic leather. While leather gets more points from golfers, the synthetic material receives praise for being durable and easy to maintain. 

Players can also find the waterproof coating convenient, especially on events where the sprinklers are turned on or when it accidentally rains. Perforations can be spotted on the sides of the shoe. It encourages breathability on the interior, which can be the usual criticism for synthetic uppers. 

This product also accomplishes excellent foot lockdown through traditional lace-up closure. A soft collar padding boosts comfort while improving the fit of the shoe.

Footjoy ARC SL Style

Looking sleek on the links needs not much effort with the FJ ARC SL. The construction of the shoe balances traditional and athletic, which results in a timeless pair that stands out on the greens. The classic styling of the shoe is a no-fail accessory to any outfit. Pairing it with shorts during summer or thick pants on winter works both ways seamlessly.
