Adidas 360 Traxion Shoe: Bounce Technology + Great Price + BOA

There are basically two types of golf shoe companies. Firstly, those that started as golf shoe makers and come at it from a single sport background.

Then there are the global multi-sport shoe manufacturers who bring ideas from other sports and apply them to golf and this is where Adidas come from.

Over the last few years they have given us natural motion shoes like the PureMotion and then the minimalist Adizero Tour with its football heritage. This was a bold look, super light, great waterproof performance, but virtually no cushioning as it aimed to get your feet as close to the ground as possible.

Then came the Adidas Boost, finally Adidas offered some cushioning and it worked wonders. When you pushed against it, Boost returned more energy than other materials, like a trampoline under your foot. Adidas Boost was actually responsible for placing Adidas just behind FootJoy at pole position.

Now in 2017, Adidas has come up with Bounce. Adidas Bounce cushioning is best described as a firmer boost. It’s actually bouncy. You get a good amount of court feel, impact protection, and bounciness which is amazing. Specifically that bounce-back that makes you feel like you’re almost floating on air. Foam-crafted, it offers just enough give on the arch of the foot so that when you’re flexing you barely notice that you’re wearing shoes at all. Part of the appeal behind this new franchise is the “get in the zone” storyline, where golfers can feel like they’re transported to somewhere that almost feels like an out-of-body experience. That aspect shines tWhatsApp Image 2017-07-24 at 8.01.24 PMhrough here.

A few of us at Golfoy, tried the Adidas Golf Men’s 360 Traxion BOA Wide Spiked Golf Shoes, which is a great shoe with bounce tech and BOA lacing system at just under 9000. Here’s how we can sum it up.

The shoe upper has a very modern look, featuring classic leather with a finish of PU on top, holding the loops for BOA. This design is similar to the older Adipower Boost, as a separate base for loops improved the fit of shoe considerably. Two overlapping layers provide a much better fit compared to single layer covering and securing the foot. There is excellent mid sole support along with a perfect arch over the top of fit which holds the foot strongly inside the shoe. Taking a swing is very comfortable in it.WhatsApp Image 2017-07-24 at 8.24.56 PM

The Traxion 360’s tongue has more padding and a contoured and slightly firmer top to fit around the base of your ankle that provides more cushioning against the BOA wires under where the bow would be.

As you stand to take your shot, you feel the spikes just amalgamate inside the bouncy sole. The bounce sole provide excellent energy return on the points where the spikes are, hence reducing the stress on the foot and giving excellent grip with the ground.

Finally, A BOA shoe at 9k is certainly a bargain in 2017 and you should surely grab one before it flies off the shelves. Click to Buy @Golfoy.com

 

Review: NEW 2017 Adidas Men’s Climacool ST Spikeless Golf Shoes

Today, we are going to review the NEW 2017 Adidas Men’s Climacool ST Spikeless Golf Shoes

The shoe is a protective lightweight trainer, best suited for daily rounds. There’s a fair amount of midsole to it although a very flexible one. Deep flex grooves on the bottom of the shoe provide maximum front-to-back flexibility, which allows your foot to move natAdidas-Climacool-ST-F33525_08_1000x1000urally. Unlike a lot of other lightweight shoes, however, this shoe offers a surprising amount of protection underfoot.

True to its name, the ClimaCool is extremely well ventilated. It’s minimal and extremely unintrusive upper allows your foot to do what it wants to do while optimizing airflow and keeping your feet cool when the weather gets warm. I was impressed with how much less moisture my socks, and the shoes, retained. Also, at no point did my feet feel like they were heating up, a common issue when pounding the pavement around noon time on a warm day in Panchkula.

While this is a great new golfing shoe, with surprisingly tremendous versatility, it’s not for everyone. If you simply want to experiment with a more flexible, lightweight shoe for your daily rounds this summer, then I suggest taking this shoe for a Ride.

Fit

Toebox: Generous. I have fairly fat feet (thanks to a larger-than-life bunions) and I have plenty of toe clearance, as well as side to side room, in these shoes.

Midfoot: Average. Neither tight nor overly loose, the upper wraps my foot well while providing a secure fit.

Heel: Secure. For an overall flexible shoe the ClimaCool Ride had a rigid heel counter (i.e. not easily collapsable) that held my foot well in the shoe.

Feel

In-Shoe Security: Secure. While my foot has plenty of room to do what it wants to do, the shoe Adidas-Climacool-ST-F33525_04_1000x1000doesn’t feel sloppy. When I hit a shot my foot can do as it pleases, but it’s not going anywhere.

Perceived Weight: Light. this shoe felt fairly light on my feet. While it looks like more bulkier  than others in its category, there’s nothing bulky about it.

Ride

Transition: Smooth. No clunk or awkward transition here. The deep flex  grooves throughout the shoe allow for a smooth transition, whether you’re a slight heel striker or mostly up on your midfoot or forefoot.

Responsiveness: Firm, but forgiving. This shoe definitely isn’t plush, but it’s fast enough for a tempo run and there’s also enough cushioning underfoot that I felt protected when running at a slower pace.
