Having a golf shoe that’s incredibly stable and comfortable is extremely important, but if there’s one thing golf shoe manufacturers have been trying to master in recent years, it’s the weight of the shoe.
Adidas has been an industry leader in innovative, technologically advanced high-performance footwear for years, creating cutting-edge footwear that not only looks good but also performs and responds on the course.
On Thursday, the company unveiled its latest shoe offering, the adizero Tour, an ultra-light shoe that weighs just 10.6 ounces and is 38 percent lighter than the popular TOUR360 ATV, thanks a 1.2 millimeter SPRINTFRAME outsole — Adidas’ thinnest ever — and a microfiber leather upper that’s light, thin and incredibly durable.
“I’m always looking to add comfort and lightweight elements to my game, rounds on the course get long and it’s vital to have footwear that helps you perform” said eight-time PGA Tour and 18-time European Tour champion, Sergio Garcia, “the adizero golf shoe gives me the tools to stay light on my feet and feel closer to the ground through each step and swing.”
The adizero also has a 10-spike configuration with THINTECH low-profile technology for added traction and stability.
The shoe line will be available in four colorways beginning Jan. 24 with an MSRP of $180.
