FIRST LOOK REVIEW: 2018 Adidas Adipower Bounce Spiked Golf Shoes

F33782_04_standardA modern golf shoe with a clean look at address, the Adidas Adipower Bounce provides a secure fit, amazing traction and directed flexibility throughout the swing.

Introduction

It was about a year ago that Adidas sold off TaylorMade and left some folks wondering if that signaled a complete exit from golf.  Based on the stable of Adidas Golf professionals competing in every professional golf tournament around the world, that’s clearly not the case.  In fact, Adidas had the largest and most impressive booth in the apparel section at the 2018 PGA Merchandise Show.

LooksF33782_43_detail

The Adidas Adipower Bounce is a wonderful blend of classic and modern looks.  Looking down at your toes, the shoe has a clean, rounded appearance reminiscent of a classic leather golf shoe.  From the side, the exposed Bounce sole makes the shoe look sporty.

The sole is minimalistic with 6 cleats on a fortified plastic base.

Comfort

Being able to get a firm grip on the large tongue made slipping the Adidas Adipower Bounce very simple.  Instantly it had the feel of a fine leather shoe that’s snug and ready to conform to your foot.

There’s moderate padding around the ankle with a slightly higher cut.  Midfoot, the sung nylon laces offer plenty of adjustment to comfortably lock in the fit.  The toe box has some wiggle room with spot on sizing.

Look no further than the power DJ generates if you’re wondering about the Adidas Adipower Bounce’s on course performance.  What I appreciated was being able to leverage a steady base on my backswing, then having some flexibility in the shoe while transitioning through impact.

Traction is as good as it gets.  It’s nice to have your feet feel secure no matter what ground conditions or body positions you find yourself in.  I ran into a brief shower during my first round of testing and the rain beaded up on the leather.

Conclusion

It’s amazing to learn what can happen when designers blend advanced materials with good old premium leather.  The Adidas Adipower Bounce may be built for performance, but it also comes with a look that should appeal to most golfers.  Give your feet a chance to mingle with the leather before heading out for a long golf weekend.  After that, make sure to bring your A game – these shoes deserve your best.

IMG_20171004_234009Introduction

The Freestyle 2.0 is the new spikeless shoe from Viper Golf. While Viper Golf is currently a newbie in shoes, the shoe still does stand out in the course and makes a point.

Comfort

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.

Role of golf shoes in your game

Buying golf shoes is big dent in the pocket for any Indian golfer. With a decent pair of branded golf shoes costing atleast five thousand bucks, it’s a hard decision at times. However, does wearing golf shoes really improve the game. The answer is a big yes! Golf shoes provide flexibility, stability and balance when a golfer makes the swing. They are designed to specifically excel on the above three criteria so that theres no slippage and the golfer can produce a great shot.

Balance

Since a shot is played while standing still, the sole of golf shoes are made broader in order to make the golfer more balanced while attempting the shot. If the sole is compared to running, athletic, football shoes the extra broadness clearly shows. This is because in other sports, the foot movement is continuous; however in golf the foot movement is specifically restricted. Today, shoes like Mizuno Nexlite come with Mizuno’s trademark zero glide technology which help in maintaining balance by providing a grip that stop the foot from gliding inside the shoe.

Stability

I tried swinging my driver with bare feet last Sunday at my home course, Panchkula golf club and was astonished to see the amount of foot action required. Well, I was happy its not an issue as my Mizuno Nexlite golf shoes come with Mizuno’s trademark zero glide technology which help in maintaining balance by providing a grip that stop the foot from gliding inside the shoe. Many other golf shoes too have built in stabilizers to stop the feet from sliding. The hard midfoot support is also particularly important when driving the ball, because golfers tend to end their stroke near their feet. The spikes found on most golf shoes also help keep players’ feet from sliding on wet or uneven turf.

Flexibility

Because many times, you need to hit the golf ball from a bunker or an awkward slope. Hence, golf shoes are made flexible for this purpose so that the shoe can sit comfortably on any terrain, while you hit your golf ball. Mizuno’s Dynamotion Fit technology provides unlimited degrees of freedom to your feet , hence making mizuno golf shoes one of the most flexible in golf.

Last but not the last, comfort is one of the top criteria’s while choosing a golf shoe over a normal shoe. If a golfer plays 18 holes, he can cover anywhere between six to nine kilometers over long hours of time and hence one has to make sure he wears a shoe which provides the most comfort.
