Regular readers will know I love a bit of colour co-ordination – particularly when it comes to matching my outfits to my golf shoes.
It’s one of my favourite things about team competitions. The recent Solheim and Ryder Cups and their vibrant displays of red and white versus yellow and blue have left me with serious shoe envy.
So while, like most European fans, I could barely watch on Sunday as the Americans rounded off the most resounding Ryder Cup victory in the modern era, I started scribbling down some ideas for my own personally designed shoes.
Then I remembered that you can actually do this through the FootJoy MyJoys process, and it occurred to me that perhaps not many people actually know you can do this. So, without further ado…
How does the FootJoy MyJoys process work?
Firstly you can pick from a variety of spiked and spikeless shoe styles as your base as well as choosing from laced and BOA offerings…
From here you have numerous colour and material options. In the Premiere styles you can also add text and logos to the heels to make your shoes even more personal…
How did I style my MyJoys?
The biggest decision is picking between styles. Do you want a classic Premiere series model or a more sporty Pro SL? I couldn’t decide so I decided to design one of each. Greedy, I know…
I think its great the way you can contrast bright bold colours with more subtle lighter textures. This bright pink is a particular favourite of mine.
Adding logos to the heels of your shoes takes the personalisation even further. The bright rainbow is really cute and I really like the fact you can add charity logos such as the pink breast cancer ribbon.
Then, of course, there are team colours.
Have a certain team you support? Why not design your shoes to celebrate that? Here are some classic Premieres in the white and green of Yorkshire.
I’ve also added my initials, because why not?
