Adidas’ latest golf shoes feature a new technology the company calls “gripmore,” which combines the performance benefits of spikeless and spiked shoes in one neat package. Gripmore cleats are actually injected directly into the sole and feature hundreds of “microspikes,” that further enhance stability. The first new model with this technology, the adicross gripmore ($150), features 43 gripmore cleats to provide 243 total traction points while the second model, the pure 360 gripmore ($130) features 23 gripmore cleats and 161 total traction points.
2013 U.S. Open champ Justin Rose, who debuted the adicross gripmore earlier in the year, said he was impressed with shoes’ performance and traction.
“I’m always looking for footwear that provides traction without compromising comfort, style or on-course performance,” he said. “With gripmore, I have the versatility of a spikeless shoe combined with the performance of a cleated shoe. It’s the best of both styles.”
Both models will be available June 1.
