Footwear companies have created cross-promotions for years, importing popular styles and elements from running, basketball and other categories into golf. One of the most popular last season was a blending of FootJoy’s iconic Premiere with Jon Buscemi’s West Coast styling for the 2022 Players Championship.
It’s Players Championship week again, and for the second-straight season, FootJoy and Buscemi have made a limited-edition offering to commemorate the crown jewel of the PGA Tour. We can expect to see players such as Justin Thomas, Max Homa and Will Zalatoris wearing it at TPC Sawgrass.
The FJ x Buscemi Premiere Field and Wilcox shoes each have luxury touches, but don’t let the styling fool you into thinking they are not functional. Both shoes are 100-percent waterproof, have nine replaceable cleats and scores of traction elements to keep players firmly on the ground during the swing, and offer plenty of lateral support.
But let’s be honest:You buy shoes like these because they also have style enhancements such as gold accents that pay homage to the trophy given to the winner of the Players Championship and just look cool.
The FJ x Buscemi limited-edition Premiere Field and Wilcox shoes will be available exclusively on footjoy.com starting Thursday, March 9 for $370 per pair while supplies last.
