ULTIMATE ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE
Get ultimate athletic performance with HYPERFLEX II golf shoes for men. Featuring innovative materials like the new FlexGrid 3.0 BioMorph upper, HYPERFLEX II men’s golf shoes deliver lightweight support and cushioning so you can play at your highest level. FJ, The #1 Shoe in Golf.
Footjoy strikes again with the Hyperflex golf shoe. The Hyperflex golf shoe is one of the best golf shoes on the market and is geared towards grip, stability, and more grip. They’re also pretty cheap which is somewhat surprising. Golf shoes with this much technology typically cross around the $130 threshold, but these are well below that mark. In addition to offering golfers a ton of grip and stability, this golf shoe is really lightweight because of the mesh material that is used on the upper. Overall, we highly recommend the Hyperflex as an affordable and stable golf shoe that performs well in bad weather. It’s a great deal and one of the best golf shoes you can buy.
FEATURES & BENEFITS
FLEXGRID 3.0 TECHNOLOGY
The high performance FlexGrid™ 3.0 BioMorph material combines with a soft and comfortable athletic mesh to deliver incredible retention properties, while providing waterproof protection.
SOFT FTF 2.0 CUSHIONING
Fine-Tuned Foam 2.0 provides underfoot comfort and soft cushioning without compromising lateral support and stability.
LASER PLUS FIT
HYPERFLEX is built on the Laser Plus Last which offers a full rounded toe character, a standard fit across forefoot and instep, with a slightly narrow heel. An Extra Thick Fit-Bed with Next Gen HeelLoc™ ensures increased underfoot cushioning for enhanced comfort, support and a slip-resistant fit.
EXTREME N.E.O. TRACTION
The Next Evolutionary Outsole provides lightweight stability and performance. The Tornado Cleats by Softspikes provide stability and support from the moment you step foot onto the course.
The Optimized Performance Stabilizer secures your heel and ankle throughout the swing, providing unsurpassed support, comfort and fit.
FootJoy call this combination a FlexGrid and it lives up to both parts of the name as it is light and flexible, but still provides a very good level of support, so you are not slopping all over place like you do when you try and swing in a running shoe.
The Footjoy Hyperflex golf shoe is surprisingly soft and provides great lateral stability for shifting your weight on your downswing. This is fairly odd for such a lightweight golf shoe. When you take weight away from a golf shoe, manufacturers typically reduce padding and rubber elements. This is not the case with the Footjoy Hyperflex. These golf shoes are made with soft FTF 2.0 cushioning, which is specially designed to make the shoes great for the arches and the ball of your foot. These golf shoes are also slip resistant for those of you with sweaty feet. To top it all off, Footjoy added a narrower heel to grip the foot better – allowing your foot to stay in place during various movements.
Traction & Stability
The stability is very good as you would expect and the old benefit from the XPS-1 of better comfort from the wider footprint of the sole is still there. There has been a lot of technical improvement in the sole as various elements come together to create the stability and comfort. The Footjoy Hyperflex golf shoes feature Next Evolutionary Outsole (NEO). We’re not sure what this means, but Footjoy claims that it enhances stability and performance. One quick caveat with this shoe is that Footjoy has seemingly named and/or trademarked every part of this golf shoe. But despite the overly complicated names, as you can see above, you’re feet aren’t going to slip in these shoes. This golf shoe features nine cleats (designed like tornadoes) to give you maximum grip. To maximize stability, these golf shoes come with a performance stabilizer that keeps your heel and ankle stable while you swing.
Are these the best golf shoes for you?
Styling is a personal thing though, but like flamboyant golfers, you have to be able to back up style with performance. The FootJoy HyperFlex certainly does that with a great combination of comfort and stability and I can see this being just as successful for FootJoy as the DNA with those who prefer a sportier look. However quality is what the Tour-S is all about and as the saying goes, you will get what you pay for, which given the quality of the materials involved means that the Tour-S is going to be one of the most expensive shoes in the market.
The Hyperflex by Footjoy is a great product and is the best golf shoe on the market for golfers on a tight budget. The Hyperflex retails for about $50.00 cheaper than its competitors without sacrificing any important features. To be honest, we’re still trying to figure out what’s wrong with this golf shoe because it’s priced so low, but we can’t find any drawbacks. The Hyperflex is comfortable, stable, waterproof, lightweight, and affordable. You really can’t ask for more. Without a doubt, it’s one of the best golf shoes on the market today.
