Who should NOT buy it

The Superlites XP BOA's incredible tenacity

The lugs of the Footjoy Superlites XP BOA's outsole are adored by golf players for their grippy nature. They "keep my front foot from slipping," says one reviewer.

Its tenacity, however, has a dark side in that the outsole's earth-digging studs collect leaves, according to a reviewer. "Great grip but did collect leaves," says the same reviewer.

Not the easiest to clean

A case of discoloring

This FJ golf shoe in white turns yellowish in just a few rounds, some reviewers say. "They looked like I'd owned them for 6 months," said a player after using his Superlites XP BOAs one time. It "picks up all the dust and dirt and very quickly discolors," said another.

Wide-toed golfers beware

There are those who find the forefoot section of the Superlites XP BOA a tad narrow. "I could use a hair more width in the toe box," says one golf player. "The toe area was too tight," said another.
