Finally got to play a round in my adidas tour 360 boost! Very comfortable and very stable. That’s despite the fact that my left shoe had no spikes in it because my resourceful Assistant Pro “borrowed” them when we ran out of spikes in the shop and I forgot to replace them (oops.) I didn’t actually notice until I looked at my shoe on the 10th hole, so that says someone about the comfort….or my obliviousness. I naturally choose the comfort explanation.
Shoes didn’t quite match the outfit but it was a last minute call to sport the adidas shoes for the round. My early thought was that these would be the best shoes of 2016 and I don’t think that has changed. Some reports of some hot spots in the heel but didn’t experience this for myself. Maybe because I was rocking my superior Swiftick Socks.
Likely the best piece of footwear to come out of the 2016 PGA show had to be the adidas Tour 360 Primeknit Boost.
The Primeknit features all of the benefits of the Tour 360 Boost with the addition of a super lightweight and breathable knit upper. Now, this is a summer shoe (read: not waterproof) but with the lower areas of the shoe protected it should keep the feet dry of those dew sweepers out there.
While the Primeknit construction creates lightweight and breathability benefits on the performance side it also makes this one of the coolest looking shoes I have seen in years. Based on the positive reaction from those around me I was not alone on this. Primeknit has been very popular in Adidas running shoes and like so many things this year adidas nailed the transition to golf.
Now that I got you all excited about the shoe……..it’s time to tell you it’s not available until June. But, with so many great release from adidas golf at the show, at least this gives us something to look forward to.
