Sad to see FootJoy close down the USA plant that makes the Classics. I know economic times dictate certain changes, but I'm positive that other options existed. I have 3 pairs of classics; black/brown saddle in traditional leather, pebbled black with red gator, and a really sweet brown Llama pair. I only wear these when I'm in tournaments or playing at nice clubs where I prefer to dress more upscale. Each of these styles just feel so "old school" and elegant, and I always walk a bit taller when I have them on.
Now that Icons are available, I will be taking a look at getting a couple pairs in "personalized" color schemes. Actually, that white and light blue pair in your photo here has some nice possibilities! But I am sad that whatever I choose will not be the same "Made in the USA" product from Boston.
