The vintage and antique FootJoys represent the pinnacle of craftsmanship and luxury, and are highly prized by collectors and aficionado of fine shoes. Needless to say, a golf shoe or, as in this case, a shoe made to that standard, must stand up to far more abuse than a normal shoe. You can count on this shoe to survive in all conditions of use.
This and one or two other Lizard Footjoys among my listings are perhaps the finest and the rarest golf shoes to be seen outside of a museum….and certainly the most beautiful. The skins are artfully arranged, with fine and coarse patterned pieces distributed for maximum effect, and all perfectly matched between shoes.
This particular shoe is a professional conversion from golf to street shoe, no doubt originally a special order from a golf client wishing to duplicate his favourite golf shoe with a pair with soles suitable for everyday wear.
When this shoe was available from the factory before they closed, it cost $1500 plus tax, required 16-20 weeks for delivery, and was not available for export outside the United States. Moreover, special order shoes were non-returnable to Footjoy if, for instance, the fit was incorrect.
[My sales are fully returnable for this or any other shoe.]
