    FJ, the #1 Shoe in golf, announces the availability of the new FJ Retro leather to the MyJoys® custom program.  The FJ Retro leather was developed by to match FootJoy's deep heritage.  The inspiration came from high end luxury brands that often used repetitive branding on their signature products, be it handbags or luggage.  

    The FJ Retro leather features dancing FJ’s, scattered golf balls, a golfer posed after a well struck shot, an old school kiltie golf shoe in a random pattern.  No two pairs will look exactly the same, each will be unique as the golfer’s who choose to wear them! The leather was used in for a brief period in 2003, but now is reappearing for a limited time only in MyJoys!

    Only 200 pairs can be made using this highly exclusive leather so act fast!

    Available styles include: FJ ICON Traditional and DryJoys Tour.

    Hometown favorite, Jimmy Walker cruised to a four stroke victory at the Valero Texas Open.  Leading by four entering the final round, Walker remained steady on the difficult windswept TPC San Antonio golf course and shot even par over his first nine. The former Baylor Bear added second nine birdies at 16 and 17 to remain at the top of the leaderboard.  A routine par at the last locked up the victory. 

    Walker relied on FJ ICON MyJoys (Thursday and Sunday) and HYPERFLEX (Friday and Saturday) en route to the victory.  Also aiding Walker's grip on the tournament was the FJ StaSof golf glove, the most relied on glove on tour.  Lastly,  Walker stayed cool and dry in full line FJ Performance Apparel
