COMMON FOOT PROBLEMS

If you are experiencing regular discomfort (or pain) in your back, legs or feet while golfing, FootJoy recommends consulting your doctor.  It is not uncommon for golfers to assume that their back or leg pain is caused by their swing (or not golfing enough!). We often hear in fittings that consulting a podiatrist and changing to a shoe that offers the right support relieves their discomfort.

Pronation 
Pronation is simply the natural “roll” of your foot as you walk, but over-pronation can cause pain when you walk, as well as other issues such as back pain. Over-pronation is sometimes associated with flat or low arches. If you have been told by a doctor that you over-pronate follow your doctor's shoe recommendations, but we would suggest you try a shoe with good midsole support, like ContourFIT or FJ ICON . 

Plantar Fasciitis 
For people who have been diagnosed with Plantar Fasciitis we strongly recommend consulting your Podiatrist for their recommendations before selecting a shoe. But in our experience in fitting golfers, we suggest you look for shoes with:
  • Firm heel support
  • Strong arch support
  • Minimal midsole torquing (midsole is unable to twist or bend)
  • Flex only at the ball of the foot
  • Secure lacing (a BOA lacing system might be optimal)
