FootJoy, the dominant market leader in shoes, is cracking the code on stability. The latest version of its D.N.A (DryJoys Next Advancement) franchise, the D.N.A. Helix sports a wider TPU outsole, especially under the heel, to help you take your biggest cuts with confidence.

The company says the shoe is 38-percent more stable than the previous model. “I’ve worn every version and this is by far the best for me,” says PGA Tour player Scott Stallings of the shoe in a release. “The additional support they built in, especially laterally as I move back and through the ball, is fantastic.” The updated outsole is also a 23-percent lighter than before. Plus, a softer, more flexible foam insole and cushioned FTF (“fine-tuned foam”) midsole enhance comfort while a stretchable tongue and padded collar ramp up the feel quotient. The D.N.A. Helix comes with choice of standard laces, or the Boa lacing system for an extra $30. In stores now; $210.
