Experience Out of This World Comfort With the All-New FJ Stratos™

NEW BEDFORD, MA – FootJoy, the #1 Shoe in Golf, invites you to experience the ultimate in on and off-course comfort with the all-new FJ Stratos.  Featuring an unparalleled, ultra-cushioned underfoot ride, game-changing traction and super-soft leather uppers, FJ Stratos is innovative footwear that delivers next level performance and all-day comfort.

Stratofoam Cushioning System
FJ Stratos golf shoes feature an all-new cushioning compound called StratoFoam, a proprietary foam blend that provides optimal support and comfort for conditions specific to golf, including swinging, walking and everything in between.  StratoFoam is the perfect blend of cushioning, made up of a proprietary EVA/Polyolefin mixture, which helps absorb shock for maximum comfort and energy return.

“A golf shoe needs to connect your foot to the surface that you’re playing on, but the loud and clear feedback from our target consumer is that it also needs to provide exceptional comfort,” said Richard Fryer, Director of Product Management, FJ Footwear.  “Our new StratoFoam midsole was designed and developed specifically for golf, providing cloud-like comfort, while absorbing and returning the most energy which results in less foot fatigue after a round of golf.”

Advanced Versatrax+ Outsole
The all-new VersaTrax+ outsole is designed to provide max traction for every lie and every condition, featuring a revolutionary anti-channeling tread pattern engineered to provide total traction coverage, reducing slippage from any angle.  The new outsole configuration utilizes multiple TPU compounds to grip any surface – a harder TPU for on-course grip and a softer TPU for traction on harder surfaces.

The FJ Stratos innovation package results in Tour-level on-course performance and was named a top-rated, best-in-class shoe in Cornell University’s recent turf grass/green friendliness testing.

Super Soft, Super Supple
FJ Stratos uses a beautiful, soft, premium leather upper from Pittards® of England, utilizing a proprietary tanning process to achieve an ultra-luxurious, supple feel.  It features an athletic-fit construction with an integrated tongue for all-around comfort and a reinforced heel for greater rear foot stability.

Cleveland Golf Unveils New Cleveland CBX 2 Black Satin Finish

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA – Golfers have come to love the Cleveland CBX 2 wedge for its combination of spin, control and forgiveness. There’s even more to love with the addition of the stylish, all-new Black Satin finish. The Cleveland CBX 2 Black Satin officially launches in North America on December 18, 2020.

The Cleveland CBX 2 changed the golf industry’s approach to wedge design. For far too long, wedges have been designed for the world’s best players at the expense of the everyday golfers who define the sport. That’s why the Cleveland CBX 2 is a forgiving, cavity back wedge built with the everyday player in mind. It features tour wedge technologies that you would expect from Cleveland Golf, but it is loaded with forgiveness so everyone can take advantage of those developments in design. With the addition of the Black Satin finish, players can upgrade their style points on the course as well.

“The Cleveland CBX wedge line has been a revolution for wedges,” said Mike Powell, President of North America Sales and Marketing at Cleveland Golf. “The Cleveland CBX 2 has made the short game easier, and now golfers will have expanded options when choosing their wedges with the new Black Satin release.”

In addition to the new Black Satin finish and the original Tour Satin, Cleveland CBX 2 wedges are offered in a variety of different lofts and sole grinds. The V-Shaped Sole grind is offered in 46°- 52° lofts. Meanwhile, the S-Shaped Sole grind is offered in 54° and 56° lofts, while the C-Shaped Sole grind is offered in 58° and 60° lofts. The wedges are available in left and right-handed options.
