FootJoy remains one step ahead after being named the ‘World’s Best Shoe Brand 2020’ at the 7th annual World Golf Awards. The award completes four successive wins in the category and reaffirms the brands position as the #1 Shoe in Golf.
‘The World’s Best Golf Shoe Brand’ award was contested by several of the game’s best footwear brands and the winner was determined by a public vote cast via the awards’ website. FootJoy’s consecutive wins highlight the brand’s continued position as the market leader and recognises its commitment to create innovative products to suit all golfers.
The awards close on what has been a turbulent year for the golf industry, which has seen the sport halted and reignited with record-breaking numbers just months apart, presenting both challenges and opportunity to FJ in equal measure. FJ’s Pro|SL remains the #1 Shoe on Tour, with this year’s innovative redesign setting the standard, again, for performance golf shoes. The brand also enjoyed success throughout the summer with the second year of the game-changing Flex franchise which continues to offer golfers on-course performance with ultimate off-course versatility and all-day comfort.
This year, FJ celebrate 75 years as the #1 Shoe on Tour as hundreds of Tour players continue to step up to the mark in FJ shoes and trust the brand’s performance, including the likes of Justin Thomas, Adam Scott, Ian Poulter, Patrick Cantlay, Louis Oosthuizen, Lee Westwood, Bernd Wiesberger, Georgia Hall, Inbee Park and Sei Young Kim.
Russell Lawes, FJ Brand Director, said: “We are very grateful to be recognised with this award for a fourth successive year and it’s an achievement we are very proud to celebrate. It is testament to our team’s ambition, vision and creativity to sustain our position and reputation in the market. As a brand we are incredibly proud of our heritage and legacy in innovation, as we consistently strive to develop game-changing products and stylish designs that golfers trust and know will deliver outstanding performance.”
