When I first got the Helix, I took them out for a few rounds not expecting much more than what I experienced with the DNA. Basically, I expected them to be comfortable with solid traction but nothing more that would make me wear them after I had done my testing. Two months later I find myself choosing to wear the Helix nearly every round. Note, I typically have about 7 pairs of quality golf shoes to choose from.

Over the past two months I have played in varying conditions from bone dry to extremely wet. Just this week I played a mountain course in Virginia. We actually had a 45 minute delay while it dumped about 2 inches of rain. Not only were my feet absolutly dry, but I was super impressed with the level of traction both during my swing and navigating the steep terrain. It is hard to quantify traction and stability during a round, but subliminally you can tell. Perhaps it is manifested in a level of confidence. In any case, despite having zero expectations of wearing these shoes more than 5 times, I am on round 15.

If I had to boil it down to the top 5 reasons why the Footboy DNA Helix have become my go to shoe this summer it would be:

Weight: The DNA Helix are super light compared to other tour level shoes.
Comfort: While still not as comfortable to walk in as "sneaker" type of golf shoes, the Helix are absolutly appropriate for walking 18 holes.
Traction, grip and stability: The Footboy Helix, has these qualities in spades. I don't think you will find a shoe that is significantly better in this area.
Quality leather: Along with being waterproof, the DNA Helix leather is really soft making it more flexible when walking than other tour level shoes.
Low heal: I am a fan of shoes with little to no heal which is common in many high end golf shoes. Fortunately, the Helix sits very low to the ground.

Smaller than the Old DNAs

The new DNAs are at least a half size smaller than the old DNAs and toe box seems more rigid. Footbed seems to have a little more cushion.

      Comments about D.N.A. Helix:

      Perhaps they just need to be broken in further, but after a few rounds and several trips to the range they are causing blisters on my heel, and the cushion in the sole doesn't feel as comfortable as prior generation DNAs. Toe box is also extremely rigid.

          Comments about D.N.A. Helix:

          The FJ HELIX is an excellent pair of gamer shoes for walking the course- steep angles on hillsides and dunes- not a problem. These shoes were tested in a cold wet rainy conditions for a week of golfing in Ireland and also a week in a well over a hundred degrees of heat in Las Vegas, Nevada. The FJ HELIX performed extremely well- impeccable! It's light weight design and thick cushion foot bed felt like walking on air and it is definitely waterproof. One that I am very proud of is its stability- its base foundation helps keep me in good balance and secured grounded. This is important to me as it gives me the confidence to do my golf work without any worries. Fabulous pair of golf shoes!!

          Incredible fit, super comfortable. They seem to mold around your foot. Importantly, these shoes stick to the ground like suction cups enhancing my golf performance. Highly recommended!
