The Conversation Began in 1857

FootJoy’s brand history dates back to 1857, when a young man named Fredrick Packard broke away from his father’s boot workshop to establish his own shoe business. His dedication to innovation, quality and style soon intersected with a love for the game of golf and the FootJoy line of premium performance golf footwear was born.

A tried and tested method used for over 100 years. Hand-selecting premium calfskin leathers, utilizing classic goodyear welt construction and ensuring detailed, impeccable finishes are just a few steps in our unique manufacturing process.
