FootJoy, the No.1 shoe in golf, has renewed its partnership with Harris Tweed Hebrides to introduce a brand-new, limited-edition footwear range, celebrating hand craftsmanship, heritage and tradition.

Following the releases of the Black Watch Packard in 2021, and Shawbost Collection last year, the iconic brands have teamed up once again to release two new models ahead of this year’s Open Championship: the FJ x Harris Tweed Premiere Series Hoylake shoes.

What sets these shoes apart is the inclusion of the Hoylake Green cloth that has been added to the Premiere Series Wilcox and Field models to complement the timeless design and innovative performance technology.

Crafted exclusively in the Outer Hebrides using truly traditional methods, pure virgin wool is handwoven to create unique, flawless and beautiful designs featuring a distinct tweed and design character.

This particular cloth was hand selected to recognise both brands’ intrinsic role in the history of the game and shared celebration of heritage.

Each pair of Premiere Series Wilcox and Field comes with a unique shoe bag made from the same cloth as featured on the shoes.

“Hoylake Green had to be the colour of the 2023 Harris Tweed Premiere Series edition,” explained Mark Hogarth, the Creative Director at Harris Tweed Hebrides.

“The Royal Liverpool Golf Club, or Hoylake as it is more commonly known, sits at the end of the Wirral Peninsula with only sand and sea beyond.

“Its glorious golfing heritage spans three centuries from the tweed-clad amateur champions Allan Macfie and John Ball to the talents and elegance of Walter Hagen and Bobby Jones. The green grass of Hoylake has been a constant of this rich history and heritage.

“The Harris Tweed Hebrides design – a subtle wide herringbone – is inspired by the deep summer hues of the Harris hills and pays homage to the spectrum of green that makes Hoylake a special place for golf.”

FootJoy ambassadors, including Justin Thomas, Max Homa, Billy Horschel and recent US Open champion Wyndham Clark, will all be wearing the shoes during this week’s Open Championship.

The shoes will be available to buy on the FootJoy website and through selected retailers from August 3, 2023.

RRP: £229 (Premiere Series Harris Tweed Hoylake Field); £239 (Premiere Series Harris Tweed Hoylake Wilcox)
