On Saturday I broke out this new pair of DryJoys Casuals and gave them a spin. As most of you know, I'm a huge fan of the Icons, and the majority of my collection is from this range. After having a discussion with Devin recently I decided to give these a try and am comparing them not only to Icons, but the DNA's.
Like all FJ's, these are comfy right out of the box. Great support, lots of comfort in all the right places, and they were the perfect compliment to the Mystic Collection apparel I was wearing. I was a little worried these would not be as supportive on the ground as my Icons, but I was really surprised at how firmly they held the turf. The design of the sole is really well done, and while not as radical as an XPS or DNA, this design is incredibly stable. I didn't find myself slipping out at all, even with damp turf after a sprinkle. Very comfy and well grounded.
This shoe is among the lightest I've worn from FJ, and really was a pleasant surprise for me. It had the same soft feel of the DNA while I was walking, and the same turf grip as my Icons. All around, this shoe is a worthy addition to any of your collections. With all of the many color combinations available, you can snap up your colorways to match several of the FJ apparel collections as well.
