For those that saw this already, I apologize in advance, but it was relevant to this thread is well - hope it isn't too bad of a faux pas... All 3 pair of these FJSports were acquired over the past 3 weeks. I have worn every brand and model of shoe you can conceive, mostly FJ - Classics, Icons, Reel Fit, Synr-G, Dry Joys, green joy's, etc. The sport is my favorite model ever. I have never seen FJ make this claim and I am not saying you would see the same results, but I drive very hard with my legs, and I have never had as stable of a base. My balance and power transfer is much different in these and I have picked up considerable distance AND accuracy. I know it sounds ridiculous to credit a shoe for the holy grail, but that is my story, and I am sticking to it. I looked at them many times and quite frankly was repulsed by the whatever it is on the toe, but I actually kind of like it now. What made me consider the FJSports was their presence on professional tours (including mini tours) it seems like everyone is wearing the Sport, and I had to see what it was all about. I couldn't recommend them any more. They may not be as sexy as the Icon's, but they sure do the trick.
