FootJoy introduces Limited Edition all-black HYPERFLEX II™, inspired by Jimmy Walker’s 2016 PGA Championship win
In celebration of Jimmy Walker’s 2016 PGA® Championship win, FootJoy announces the release of a Limited Edition run of Jimmy Walker Black HYPERFLEX IITM golf shoes. Inspired by Jimmy’s preference to wear all black head-to-toe in competition, the footwear team developed a special ‘blacked out’ HYPERFLEX II look specifically for Jimmy.
“Jimmy Walker is a tremendous ambassador for the FootJoy brand,” explains Keith Duffy, Sr Product Manager, Footwear. “We wanted to help him celebrate his huge Major win last year with a very limited run of 2,106 pairs of HYPERFLEX II Blacked-Out shoes. What better way to complete his preferred head-to-toe All Black look?”
Jimmy takes advantage of the style selection in FootJoy’s range of footwear and truly enjoys the look, feel and performance of the HYPERFLEX II category. “I really like the athletic styling, comfort and support I get in my HF2’s” said Walker. “I liked the black and white version, but I just had to have the blacked-out ones made up to test out – and they came out awesome.”
The HYPERFLEX II category is worn by many of the world’s best players and is available in additional colours: Red/White/Blue, Silver/White, Black/White and Blue/Silver.
