    Would you like a chance to win the all new M:Project shoe from FJ before they hit store shelves?  Well here is your chance!

    The M:Project shoe is all about feeling the ground during the swing, being "in-tune with what is underfoot." 

    When you're out playing golf, what's the best feeling you have experienced? Is it a buttery 5 - iron with a slight draw? Is it the ocean breeze as you walk up the 18th? Draining a putt on the final hole to take home the days' bets?

    Comment below telling us what your best feeling in golf is and you are entered to win!

    Ladies out there? Please enter as well and if you win we will offer you a comparable shoe from our women's line! Unless you are willing to wait until June when the Ladies M:Project shoes will be ready to ship.

    The period to enter will be Thursday January 31, 2013 - Friday February 8, 2013 at 12:00 pm.  Two winners will be chosen at random February 8, 2013 following the sweepstakes period.

    Void where prohibited. Open to US residents 18 years or older.  For additional rules and regulations click here.

    INTRODUCING M:PROJECT FROM FOOTJOY
    Minimal Construction = Maximum Feel

    (Please visit the site to view this video)

    (Fairhaven, MA) -- FootJoy, the #1 Shoe in Golf, announces the introduction of an all new footwear category called M:PROJECT™.  With a tremendous selection of industry-leading platform stability products already embraced by players around the world, FJ’s new M:PROJECT category gives players a new option – lightweight, ultra-flexible, minimally constructed footwear delivering maximum feel and real-time feedback.  

    “At FJ we believe that there is no single shoe that is best suited for every type of player which is why our Footwear team develops products with specific types of players in mind.” said Mike Foley, Director of Marketing, Footwear. “The M:PROJECT is the perfect extension to FJ's performance lineup.  This new category targets players seeking lower profile, minimalist-type footwear.  Not only does the player get a better sense of the ground beneath them, they also are more tuned-in to the movement of their lower half throughout the swing.”

    Doug Robinson, Vice President of Footwear Design & Development Worldwide and his team have tested thousands of players from elite Tour professionals to amateurs at the state-of-the-art Shoe Box testing facility in Brockton, MA.  Working in conjunction with Dr Greg Rose at TPI, their respective teams have observed a segment of players who require more movement in their feet in order to create the proper ground force reactions in their golf swing.

    According to Dr. Rose, “M:PROJECT is designed for the golfer to increase the movement, to feel the ground and sense things underfoot they could not before.  With each step you take you start creating more mobility, which teaches you how to create more power in your golf swing. ”
