They caused quite a stir in 2021, and now FootJoy have expanded their modern classic range. Hannah Holden has all the details
For 2022 FootJoy are expanding their modern classic range as they add a new Field model to the Premiere Series line up.
FootJoy Premiere Series Field: First impressions
As you would expect from the Premiere Series line-up this has a gorgeous classic styling. I love the overall simplicity combined with the subtle textures on the leather for additional detailing.
The shoe is named after one of FootJoy’s founder Fred Field. Fred was such an integral part of the business it was previously called Field and Flint Company and then the Fred F. Field Company before it officially became FootJoy in 1920.
FootJoy Premiere Series Field: The technology
Also the shoe looks classic from the outside it is still packed with modern technology. Most notably the VersaTrax+ Spikeless Outsole. It features an anti-channeling tread pattern which is engineered to provide grip on any lie and at any angle. It is made from multiple TPU compounds, the harder TPU will deliver on-course grip whereas the softer TPU will provide traction on harder off course surfaces.
The upper is made from a soft supple waterproof leather. This Pittard’s leather features an iconic historic pattern.
For added comfort there is a Ortholite EcoPlush FitBed within the instep. Not only does this enhance the overall fit od the shoe it also delivers super soft and comfortable underfoot cushioning.
We also see some slight shaping changes on the toe to give it a more refined classic profile.
FootJoy Premiere Series Field: The line-up
On top of the new Premiere Series Field models there are also some additional FootJoy traditions models rounding out the modern classic range for 2022.
