Not sure of the age on these rascals...but..on the sole up near the heel, it says something we have never had on any of our Footjoy shoes before. It says, Footjoy Reg U.S.Pat.OFF. by Field and Flint Co. I know the basic History of Footjoy and am very aware of the company Field and Flint but have not observed that on any Footjoys before. Now I am have to wonder how old these actually are? The weigh a lot for sure.
