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.
Pro SL Sport: A knockout in comfort
This waterproof FJ golf shoe, according to many, is immensely comfortable. One of them even says that his Pro SL Sports are "like duvets for your feet."
10/10 tenacity on the course
A footgear maven—someone who admitted to having "felt like a pro in these shoes"—says that the Pro SL Sport "provides brilliant traction in multiple conditions." A non-professional reviewer, on the other hand, boldly says that the featured product has "crazy grip."
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.
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.
While the Footjoy Pro SL Sport is fully waterproof, its mesh upper is quite capable of flushing out stuffiness. A footwear critic even said that it's "more breathable than the standard version."
Pro SL Sport: Not a hassle to clean
These shoes "wipe clean easily," says one of the golfers who admire its easy-to-clean surface. Apparently, its TPU coating makes the difference in keeping the Pro SL Sport looking neat for longer.
Stunning in the fairway
An expert calls the Footjoy Pro SL Sport "the best-looking spikeless golf shoe of 2022." One other reviewer says that he often gets "admiring comments" while he has the shoe on.
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.
