Who should NOT buy Footjoy Fuel BOA

The Footjoy Pro SL BOA and the Footjoy Tour X BOA are excellent alternatives to the FJ Fuel BOA if you want a golf shoe that provides better padding and has no issues with the collar rubbing.

Aside from being comfortable since day one, it is the cleat that does not make their feet ache at the end of the day. Delivering superior comfort, the Footjoy Fuel BOA is a great model for those who walk a lot since this is "easy on the feet walking 18 holes." Some also add that it's their "second set of FJ and it's hard to wear anything else."

One of FootJoy's lighter offerings

An expert said that while the Footjoy Fuel BOA is not the lightest golf shoe in the market, this is "among the lightest FootJoys [they have] tested." For those who walk 18 holes and more, you will be happy that a few ounces were shaved off of this model.

This cleat is your best friend during the wet season

Experts tried putting it under a kitchen faucet and playing in a very wet and muddy environment and said that they had absolutely no problems with water getting into the shoe.

The spikeless outsole of the FJ Fuel BOA complements its waterproof design by delivering a solid grip. Users said that this has a "great grip for a spikeless shoe" and that they never felt like they would lose their footing.

For a spikeless model, this shoe delivers a "premium level of stability" during the swing and traction as you walk.

This golf shoe flaunts a first-class closure system

The closure system of the Footjoy Fuel BOA received plenty of praise. "BOA lacing system is perfect" and "very easy to use" are some of the most common compliments.

With its efficient design, users can easily adjust it by turning the knob then it is good to go for the rest of the day; wearers will not have to adjust it during the game. "Takes me back to my childhood using velcro shoes," says one of the reviewers.

Even those who were skeptical about the BOA because of its higher price tag compared to regular laces had no regrets as soon as they experienced its benefits.

You might experience some ankle rubbing

While the leather material used on this golf shoe makes the shoe durable, it causes it to be very stiff. Because of this, the outside collar can rub the ankles of the wearers.

In addition, the inside of the upper of the FJ Fuel BOA lacks padding, which can be uncomfortable for some players.
