    This is a one-of-a-kind special order from the American workrooms of the recognized premier Golf shoemaker in the world, know for it superlative exotic leather street and golf shoes. Originally (in the 1980s and 1990s) priced at $1500, this pair would be about double today if they were available at all to be ordered. They are not, however; Footjoy’s American workrooms are no more. Neither this or any of the other special order shoes is to be had, “even for ready money”.

    This shoe is a tour-de-force by this great shoemaker and it outdoes even their other superb exotic leather offerings. The lasting harkens to an earlier time, more in keeping with the mid-century or earlier, a so called “spade sole” and the interior form that goes with that shape. The pictures do not nearly do this masterpiece justice. This shoe has my highest personal recommendation.

    As with all Goodyear welted soles, they can easily be exchanged if ever you are able to wear it out, a doubtful eventuality as these are one day away from new. The build quality of Footjoy special order shoes is on a level comparable to the very best ready-mades in the world and the leathers used by Footjoy are equaled by very few.
