Anyone wearing the Footjoy Reelfit/Boa shoes?

18 posts in this topic

Just curious how you like them?

I was about to buy a pair of Footjoys and was considering the Contour, but the Dryjoys or Reelfits are in about the same $ ballpark, so just trying to decide between the three.

I have a pair of them. Absolutely love them. They are great and very comfortable. Just wish they made them in more colors.

I wear the FootJoy GF:IIs and love them. Tried the ReelFits and they felt great as well. Only went with the GF:IIs because they were cheap on eBay at the time (when the ReelFit just came out). If I was buying a pair today I would probably go with the ReelFits.

Haven't tried the reelfit. I have a pair of GF II's also. They are a great shoe. My Head Pro has the reelfit's; love's 'em.

The Dryjoy PODS, and next years stuff looks great also.

I find myself only wearing my reelfits. My other 4 pairs are only rotated in when I play 3 or more consecitive days.
There is no lace feel to the shoe. I always try to tighten my "normal" shoes in the back after a couple of holes.
GO with the FJs, you won't be disappointed.

Yes, I have them and love them. The BOA system is the bomb. $99 for the original style on TGW while they last, you can't beat that. One of them pinched my left big toe a little bit while they were breaking in, but they broke in and my toe developed a callus - no big deal. Any classic styled leather shoe could do that. I have verified that they are indeed totally waterproof and for me the BOA system is the best. I wear all my casual shoes really loose (loose enough that I leave them tied and just slip them on and off) but for walking 18 I need my golf shoes tight. I HATE tying and untying shoes, it's such a waste of time. The BOA lacing system gets it right in about 2 seconds per shoe, and if you ever need to dial in another couple of clicks, you can do it in an eyeblink.

I have the FootJoy Classic Tour ReelFits and I like them. I like the aspect of not having to tie the shoes. I also like the fact that they stay the same tightness throughout my round. There is a small pinch on the break across the left toe, but it's not too bad.

I used to swear by the GF:II, then I got a ReelFit and now I own three pair, and just cycle through them depending on what I'm wearing.

Tremendous, awesome shoes.

ReelFit...........best shoe I've ever owned! Once you put them on in the morning you NEVER have to tighten them again! Also, instead of a conventional shoe that tightens DOWN from the top when you pull on laces, the BOA technology wraps the shoe AROUND your foot for a much better fit!

The BOA system is amazing...my snowboard boots have it. :)

I would get the Reelfits but I don't like the style of the shoe. Plus tying a golf shoe is 10x easier then tying boot laces so I see no need for them.

The ReelFits require NO lacing-up. All you do is put them on, crank the knob and you're ready to go!

That's not what he said though: he just said lacing up golf shoes is easier than lacing up ski boots, so the "ease savings" on ski boots is more than on golf shoes.

PIcked up a pair of BOA today. They look strange without the reg shoe laces. I was concerned if that tightening apparatus was going to break after a few months - hopefully not. I understand FJ has a good reputation for customer service.  These shoes felt great in the showroom. I think they're a few year old (model wise).

I had some Footjoy Contours with the dial on the back for tightening. Like you I was a little worried it would break but the pro at my club re-assured me he hadn't had that problem before and that he'd replace them should anything go wrong. But I wore them out before having any problems with the tightening mechanism, and they were the most comfortable golf shoes I've ever owned (better than current ones which are more expensive Footjoy Icons).

I'm almost tempted to buy another pair while they're still on the market - I usually hate the feel of golf shoes, but these seem to fit like a glove.

Got in a round of golf today - and these things are the best golf shoes that I've ever had  - love 'em.  Just hope the BOA system lasts for a few years.

I have a pair of the reel fits, and I agree they are excellent shoes, and convenient as well.
