Tried & Tested: FootJoy DryJoys with new BOA Lace system
by Carly Cummins
January 20, 2012

I must confess that when I first saw the FootJoy BOA Lace system it reminded me very much of the type of tightening system you see on the back of a pair of ski boots. The dial at the back of the shoe may look a little odd but you soon forget it is there. I made the mistake of neglecting to read the instructions that came inside the box before throwing it away and spend half an hour trying to fathom out how to tighten or loosen the laces. In fact it turned out to be incredibly simple - just pull the dial out and the laces loosen, then push it in and turn the dial to tighten. What was interesting was how evenly the BOA Lace system tightened across the foot. Unlike traditional laces where we are all guilty of tightening from the top and leaving the lower foot a little too lose in the shoe, this clever lacing system really does ensure the shoe totally envelops your foot so that the fit is absolutely perfect.

I love the fact that your laces don't loosen or come undone during a round, you really do forget about your feet altogether, such is the comfort of these shoes. And as you would expect from a premium golf shoe your foot is very well supported and that definitely has the benefit of providing a more solid base and platform from which to swing around, which I have no doubt will help you play better golf.

Would I pick these shoes from a line-up in a shop? On looks, probably not - they're not exactly pretty. But if I had to pick the most comfortable, functional pair of shoes the FootJoy DryJoys BOA would win all day long, and comfort, after all, is more important than anything else.
