adidas unveils two new shoes

adidas Golf has two new athletic performance shoes – the puremotion and crossflex. Each shoe is extremely lightweight and designed to provide maximum flexibility and increased comfort on and off the course.

Inspired by the concept of barefoot training, the engineering behind puremotion brings the foot into closer contact with the ground while also providing necessary traction, lightweight support, waterproof protection and freedom of movement needed to perform. It weighs 11.5 ounces, has an anti-wicking mesh upper that provides both breathability and waterproof protection while an abrasion-resistant outsole provides green-friendly spikeless traction, comfort and off-course versatility. There is also a reduced heel lift which helps to align the spine with the body and improve posture. puremotion is offered in medium width, carries a two-year waterproof warranty, and is available in a choice of four colorways: White/Metallic Silver/Satellite, Chocolate/Scout/Black, Black/Black/Red, Satellite/ White/Metallic Silver. It became available June 1 and has a suggested retail price of $120.

Created for golfers who want style, breathable performance, flexibility and extreme comfort, crossflex looks and feels more like a running shoe than a traditional golf shoe. Built on a running last with spikeless, geometric outsole, the innovative 10.6-ounce shoe delivers cushioning and performance that transitions easily from the course to the street. The outsole consists of 96 strategically-placed triangular traction lugs which sit on 16 flexible hexagonal pods, allowing the foot to move freely while providing multi-directional support and grip. Each opposing triangular shape was engineered with unique physical properties that engage and adapt to varying ground surfaces to provide stability and traction where it’s needed most. Connecting each pod throughout the outsole are flex channels designed to increase energy return step after step. The result is increased traction and reduced fatigue through geometry. A waterproof mesh upper features medial and lateral engineered stitching, an internal gusset that secures the foot, and a lightweight TPU toe-shield for enhanced stability and durability. crossflex is offered in medium width, carries a ClimaProof two-year waterproof warranty, and is available in a choice of four colorways: White/Black/Red, White/White/Satellite, Black/Black/Slime and Light Gray/Black/White. It becomes available July 1 and has a suggested retail price of $100. Visit adidasgolf.com.
