FootJoy Triples Down on BOA with New Tour Alpha Carbon

BOA fans, rejoice. FootJoy just figured out how to fit not one or two, but three BOA dials onto the new Tour Alpha Carbon.

But that isn’t the only innovation going on here. The new Tour Alpha Caron Triple BOA also features Carbitex OmniFlex, a new innovation in carbon fiber textiles. This flexible carbon fiber is integrated directly into the BOA fit straps to ensure maximum stability and added power transfer.

Tech Specs

  • Triple BOA
  • Carbitex OmniFlex
  • StratoFoam Cushion
  • 159-point traction
  • $299

Why BOA?

The real question, is why have three BOA dials? The answer here is fit. Having one BOA dial is nice, sure, but three in different sections of the shoe allow the wearer to customize the fit to their foot. Need more heel lockdown? Tighten the BOA on the back. Worried more about the lateral instep? Use the dial there to dial in your fit.

Where one BOA can be effective in creating a stable fit, three amplify and accentuate the BOA’s unique ability to lock you in and help you become one with your golf shoe.

Why Carbon?

Typically, we see carbon fiber used in shank plates (or torsional support plates) in golf shoes. In running shoes or training shoes like the PAYNTR X 001 Trainer, its purpose is to provide energy return and that spring-like effect runners are looking for.

But for the FootJoy Tour Alpha Carbon Triple BOA, it has a completely different purpose and implementation. This is where Carbitex comes in. The Carbitex OmniFlex textile adds stability to the strap system on the Tour Alpha Carbon. Thus, keeping you locked in and allowing you to use (not lose) the power you gain from being supremely stable.

The key here is that the Carbitex OmniFlex carbon fiber textile is super light and doesn’t stretch, Thus, it won’t lose its shape after repeated wear. The result is a fit that’s consistently good, again and again.

Available Now

The FootJoy Tour Alpha Carbon Triple BOA is not for the masses. And despite what Tony Covey thinks, not everyone wants to lose the laces. But, for the golfer looking for maximum stability and a customizable fit, the new $299 offering from FootJoy is hard to beat.

      I am sure with these shoes I can take my 8 handicap and go out on TOUR and play “just like Scottie”.

      Oh my god, I’m a dead man walking. I already have too many golf shoes, already have the laced and boa Alpha, plus numerous Adidas. I reckon I could go 3 weeks plus and not wear the same pair, but these have to go on the collection. Just have to make sure “her that would cause me pain” not using “ her that must be obeyed” as this transcends that doesn’t find out

      I love Boa shoes, but 3 dials sticking out seems excessive. When will the shoes include little motors to tighten the boa lace system which would be controlled by an app or Alexa? Maybe stomping your foot would power batteries that drive the Boa laces as sort of a hybrid power system?

      I have a pair of last year’s two boa and find them very stable and comfortable. I tried on a pair of Squairz (sp) and they seem pretty stable as well. Haven’t played in the Squairz so can’t really do a comparison. Will be hard to replace my FJ 2boas. Best i’ve ever had.

      How do you recycle these shoes? Surely you’re not going to throw these away into the landfill? Surely you’re going to want to remove the BOA and re-use them? So do we get credit from Footjoy for turning them in for an upgrade trade into new ones so they can recycle these parts? If not, then it FAILS sustainable manufacturing.
      It’s garbage

      I say not enough dials. I’d hold out for a 6 way BOA.

      Coming from cycling – I give BOA a firm “meh”.

      Just too many dials–I don’t buy the need to have 2 on each side to customize fit. I have an older version with just one heel placed dial, knit cuff, and the fit and feel are just fine. FJ actually holds the patent on the heel located BOA. At age 72, I have real trouble reaching the left foot side “outboard” placed BOA dials, and I’m sure the same is true for many others either due to age, back problems, or lack of flexibility. For me, this is a shankasaurus. and $299 ?????????

      These go well with PXG clubs. What better way to show off how “special” you are
