Golf is welcoming a new generation of players to the game. FootJoy, the leading golf shoe brand for over 100 years, premieres the “Step Forward” campaign, highlighting how both the sport and the brand are stepping into the future. The campaign showcases FootJoy’s design and innovation leadership across footwear, apparel and gloves while representing a diverse cast of professional and amateur players.

Developed alongside creative partner Butler, Shine, Stern & Partners (BSSP), the new campaign launches globally this week with a new :30 spot, “Step Forward”, sitting at the center of the initiative.

The spots aim to break down the stereotypes of golf by featuring a diverse cast of younger golfers, amateur golfers, and disabled golfers showing off their skills on the course, all while featuring unique angle shots of FootJoy’s newest innovative footwear and players including pros like Justin Thomas, Max Homa, Jessica Korda and up and coming golfers such as Kim Egozi, Kamaiu Johnson and Jordan Thomas, among others.

As golf evolves with a younger and more inclusive generation, FootJoy is creating products representing the legacy of the brand and its ability to speak to the changing demographics of the game. The spots tell the story of FootJoy’s innovation, passion, and commitment to providing the best golf products to date.
