FootJoy Introduces the ThermoSeries™

FAIRHAVEN, MA – FootJoy, the #1 Outerwear brand in golf, continues its commitment to Make Every Day Playable by creating the best gear to help you look, feel and play your best in all conditions. ThermoSeries™, FJ’s most advanced apparel layering system ever, is a versatile collection of layering items designed specifically for golf to enable the golfer to effortlessly adapt as weather conditions evolve.

This collection of base layers, mid-layers, outer layers and pants is made with materials that move with the golfer without any restriction, are lightweight to reduce bulk and are temperature regulated to ensure maximum comfort no matter how many layers are required. The fabrics are selected for their thermal properties, but also with the golfer in mind, providing warmth without restriction in cooler conditions. These hand-selected textured fabrics feature subtle patterns that offer a distinct richness to the line.

“Coming off of the successful launch of our HydroSeries™ line of rain jackets, we saw a terrific opportunity to develop a thermal line of apparel that is built for cooler conditions,” said PJ Skurla, Director of Design, FJ Apparel. “The idea was to create a collection of pieces designed specifically for layering, so that the golfer can easily adapt as conditions change.”

The foundation to the ThermoSeries system is the Base Layer, which feels great against your skin and provides insulation while allowing full range of motion. The textured hex pattern featured allows your body to breath and stay dry.

Next is the Mid-Layer, featuring a rich, two-tone jacquard fabric available in three colors. The mid-layer is lightweight for optimal layering, packed with performance stretch materials designed for the golf swing.

The Vest and the Jacket are two available options to layer over the mid-layer for added warmth. The Vest, available in two colorways, features a simple, lightweight design with an insulated body. The Jacket offers a combination of knit and woven fabric, available in two colors. The knit fabric provides warmth and comfort, while the woven material on the front of the body and outside of the collar blocks away any wind and rain.

Rounding out the ThermoSeries collection is the Pant, which performs like an insulated rain pant but is designed to be worn as a stand-alone golf pant with features like a button closure, zip fly and belt loops. Available in Navy and Charcoal, the pant uses a thermal fabric that is slightly heavier than a normal golf pant while offering great stretch properties. The pant uses a DWR finish to repel a light rain or mist.

The color palette of the complete collection is neutral for a reason – it allows golfers to interchange all of the pieces from the collection to create many different outfit and layering options.

“We wanted this collection to work in conjunction with each other and with other pieces in the FJ line,” continued Skurla. “Navy & Charcoal are the featured base colors with some added Blue / Grey and Light Stone to compliment. These colors work well with bright colors, prints and patterns and a number of other combinations.”

Some of the latest designs even feature a super soft fur-lining to deliver a strong fashion statement and incredible warmth in the cold.

In total, there are 19 distinctively different color combinations available for golfers to choose from.

The latest BOLOGNA style is a welcome addition to the popular range of men’s golf boots and illustrates the brand’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of golf footwear innovation with the introduction of the Quick Lacing System to the collection for the first time. This provides a super comfortable fit with balanced pressure points for enhanced performance and stability, while the lightweight Airplay 12 outsole crafted from eco-rubber gives the shoe a sustainable twist for the forward-thinking modern golfer. The shoe comes in the striking Navy/Yellow and Black/Orange color combinations.

The DELAGO brogue style high-top boot – one of the brand’s best-selling models – offers superb on course stability and off-course versatility via its super-stable Airplay 11 outsole. The top-quality fur lining combined with the waterproof and highly breathable sock system ensures feet remain dry and warm in wet and cold conditions. The shoe is available in Black and Brown to ensure it stands up to demanding conditions under foot in the winter months.

The sporty STANFORD is a great choice for the fashion-forward golfer seeking a modern boot that can be worn just as much off the course as it can on it. Crafted using soft nubuck and embossed leather on the heel, the shoe delivers incredible all-day comfort. Available in the Coffee and Black colorways, bi-color laces give the boots a refreshing look and feel.

Leading the way in the Women’s range is the elegant TOSCANA boot. Incorporating the Quick Lacing System to the design for a supremely snug fit, the dazzling new style is sure to catch the eye of playing partners this winter. The lightweight and recyclable Airplay 12 outsole gives this modern boot a distinctively refreshing feel like no other golf shoe on the market. It is available in Dark Grey or Aubergine with subtle contrasting colors.

The best-selling LORENZA remains in the collection due to its popularity with fashion conscious golfers seeking a bold look for the course and clubhouse. Providing Italian flare with a soft Nappa leather outer, the high-top boot incorporates a stunning crocodile print on the upper section, while the Airplay 9 outsole ensures a well-balanced look, as well as superior stability. Golfers can choose from Black/Croco, Brown/Croco and Navy colors.

The striking PALAZZO and PRADO designs exude class and style with the intricate details applied across both models. The beautifully feminine leather boots feature the lightweight Airplay 6 outsoles to provide unrivalled flexibility and a faux fur lining to keep feet comfortable in adverse weather conditions. The boots are now available in a new Taupe color combination for those golfers seeking something exceptional to wear in the winter.

Offering a supremely distinctive appearance, the classic PALOMA boot features embossed patterning across the soft, full-grain leather upper, plus a fluffy lining to keep feet unbelievably warm in the winter months. The Airplay 6 outsole provides the feeling of a sneaker with the addition of functional nubs to deliver extra grip during play.
