Three-times Major winner Padraig Harrington has ditched Hi-Tech as his golf shoes of choice after signing a long-term golf shoe deal with Footjoy.
Harrington is expected to wear the new Footjoy SYNRG golf shoe, which hits the shops in February, as the shoe has been designed to offer more support for people with higher swing speeds, like Padraig.
"FootJoy is a brand that just about every young golfer is brought up wearing, and I'm was no different," said Harrington. “ The new SYNR-G shoes from FootJoy support the foot well throughout the golf swing, which is so important to hitting solid, powerful shots.”
“We are thrilled to welcome Padraig Harrington to Team FJ,” said Richard Fryer, European Marketing Manager - FootJoy. “Padraig not only brings an unparalleled record of worldwide success but also an intimate knowledge of the research and technology behind footwear development. He will no doubt be a great ambassador for FootJoy.”
