When I was growing up the coolest shoes ever were FJ classics, worn by all the great players and my idols - Norman, Ballesteros, Langer, Faldo and of course all the American players.
Unfortunately though they were frightfully expensive for a junior/student and pretty rare downunder in those days. But was eventually able get ahold of a pair of all white tumbled and a pair of black tumbled /black patent sheildtips that I wore for many many years and basically until they disintegrated . From there wore FJ lites (and various versions thereof) for years - until the introduction of the Icon which is now my shoe of choice.
That goes back to early '80s so probably slight understatemet to say I'm a massive fan of FJ and the great products they make.
As for the mandals, still waiting for the spiked version and they are absolutley useless in bunkers and when it rains either with or without socks!!!
