The FootJoy HyperFlex Golf Shoe: A Page From Architectural Design

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The FootJoy team didn’t have to look far for inspiration for the new FootJoy HyperFlex golf shoe, in fact most employees traveled across it everyday. The main design element of the FootJoy HyperFlex golf shoe was inspired by the Leonard P. Zakim Bridge in Boston, Massachusetts. The Zakim Bridge is the world’s widest cable-stayed bridge.


The architectural inspiration for the FootJoy Hyperflex golf shoe can be seen in the use of the mesh base, called FlexGrid 2.0 technology, and its design element is mainly used to prevent water from entering the shoe. The FlexGrid 2.0 material is a comprised of a soft and comfortable athletic mesh that promotes tremendous retention properties, yet at the same time provides a waterproof protection.


Some of the other key technologies and features found in the FootJoy HyperFlex golf shoe are the Soft Fine Tuned Foam (FTF) 2.0 cushioning, which provides exceptional underfoot comfort and cushioning, so your feet don’t get tired during your round of golf. The FootJoy team also made sure that they didn’t sacrifice the level of lateral support and stability while crafting the FTF 2.0 cushion, which is needed to produce power during the golf swing. In fact, the stability is enhanced via the Optimized Performance Stabilizer (OPS) and the Next Evolutionary Outsole (NEO). The OPS helps secure your heel and ankle throughout the swing, while the NEO provides a lightweight stable base. For added stability and support FootJoy is using Softspikes’ Tornado Cleats so you won’t have to worry about slipping while your bombing your tee shots.
