FootJoy Premiere Field LX golf shoes review

If you’re anything like us and cannot get enough of FootJoy’s stunning Premiere Series, this latest launch will be right up your street.

Inspired by shoes of the past but modernised for today’s game, the Premiere Series is the most popular shoe on tour and worn by the likes of Justin Thomas, Max Homa, Wyndham Clark and Danielle Kang.

Now there are two new models from which to choose – the Field LX and Bel Air.

The First Look

What can you say about the FootJoy Premiere Series that hasn’t been said before? Quite simply a sublime feat of golf shoe engineering.

The Tech

FootJoy say the Field LX and Bel Air models are “influenced by players with a discerning sense of style”. The brand uses hand-selected, full grain leathers with refined detailing that delivers
distinctly modern classic styling.

The Field LX is highlighted by a premium folded-edge constructed leather rand detail around the upper, while the Bel Air for women features a modern reimagining of an iconic saddle.

While timeless in design, all Premiere Series shoes are packed with performance innovation, led by the Tour-proven VersaTrax+ outsole with its revolutionary outsole technology that delivers superior traction and stability in every playing condition and on every surface.

The specifically designed anti-channeling pattern uses translucent rubber traction elements that offer a high-end look and feel while maximising traction with each step.

Premiere Series also delivers on comfort features, with enhanced collar padding and lambskin linings that provide all-day comfort and a better fit. The collection also uses an ‘Ortholite EcoPlush FitBed’ that delivers perimeter stability in the heel as well as super-soft and comfortable custom underfoot cushioning. OrthoLite does not take a set, so the cushioning continues to rebound and will remain the same for the life of the shoe.

“Premiere Series continues to be the #1 shoe across the worldwide tours thanks to its unparalleled combination of timeless style and modern performance. The introduction of the Field LX and Bel Air models offer golfers additional options within the range, thanks to new upper designs that are a nod to our past with a strong focus towards the future with a modern
classic style, next-level performance and comfort attributes.”

– Guy Smith (Senior Product Manager, FootJoy EMEA)
