LA JOLLA, Calif. -- Brandt Snedeker, Dustin Johnson and Jason Day helped adidas introduce the adizero Tour shoe earlier this week during a media event held in conjunction with the Farmers Insurance Open.
You can buy the shoe, made in four different colors, in stores today -- the same day Snedeker, Johnson and Day put them into play at Torrey Pines. At the media event on Tuesday, the three TOUR pros piloted remote-controlled aircraft that were built in their likenesses, wearing the same clothes and adizero shoe that each will sport in the first round of the tournament.
The shoe weighs just 10.6 ounces, the lightest 10-cleated shoe adidas has ever made, and joins the adizero footwear family, made popular in football, soccer and basketball. A sprint frame and spring web help make the shoe so light.
Other players wearing the adizero shoes this week are Martin Laird, Casey Wittenberg, Charles Howell III, Lucas Glover, Stewart Cink, Andres Romero, Blake Adams, Charlie Wi, Chez Reavie, Greg Owen, James Driscoll, Matt Bettencourt, Tim Petrovic, Boo Weekley, Alex Rocha, Scott Verplank and Robert Allenby.
