FootJoy now has a cool site where you can “build” your own custom set of shoes, called “MyJoys.” To build your shoes, go to http://www.myjoys.com and start building them with their “customizer.”
You can choose from many different styles of shoes, men’s and women’s golf shoes. Men’s shoes include the DryJoys PRO, DryJoys Tech, Contour, DryJoys Spikeless and DryJoys PODS. The available women’s shoes are the DryJoys Women’s, Spikeless DryJoys Women’s and the Women’s Contours.
Once you’ve picked out the shoe style with the customizer, you can choose colors and/or patterns for the different sections of the shoes (base, saddle, accent, lace). I’ve spent no less than two hours messing around with the different colors and patterns, creating some really awesome looking shoes and some absolutely horrid ones.
Logos and Monograms
After the color selection, you can put a custom logo on your shoes. Logos include flags from many countries, FJ logos, skull and cross bones (I was on this one for a while), smileys and more.
You can also put a custom monogram on your MyJoys. I built a pair which had “HOG” on one shoe (for Hooked On Golf Blog), and “TGS” on the other (for The Golf Space).
If you have a favorite college team you like to support, you can click on the “Collegiate” link in the MyJoys menu. From there you can build a pair of golf shoes with your school colors and even their logo!
Major League Baseball
You can also set up custom MyJoys with your favorite Major League Baseball team’s colors and logo.

I built many styles of MyJoys. I had some awesome black ones with silver and red trim. I had some strange looking, yet cool brown and lime green ones. I even built a Greek themed pair, with Greek colors and a Greek flag.
I finally decided to order my college’s configuration. So my University of Utah Runnin’ Utes MyJoys are ordered and on the way. I’ll post some pictures of them when they arrive.
