I first noticed the Adizero One golf shoes during the British Open. I saw Sergio Garcia wearing a pair of two-toned blue shoes with those easily recognizable triple stripes. I knew they were Adidas but wasn’t sure which model, but I was determined to find out. After a few calls and some Google searches, I found out they were one of Adidas’ latest designs: the Adizero One.
The Adizero One is made of an ultra-light SPRINTSKIN upper which is an new and exclusive leather microfiber, designed to be light, strong and thin. The SPRINTSKIN has a protective coating of Climaproof, giving the shoe lightweight, breathable protection from the rain. This gives the shoe superior fitting and comfort. SPRINTWEB internal and external TPU layers are added to the forefoot, helping to stabilize lateral movements and providing phenomenal stability throughout the golf swing.
Combine these two features with the re-engineered SPRINTFRAME, an ultra responsive energy-return PeBAX outsole ( the lightest, lowest and thinnest outsole Adidas has ever created in a golf shoe), and you have a product that really delivers what golfers are looking for: good looks, light weight and preformance.
An ultra-light, perforated tongue adds in extra breathability and comfort. This shoe is also a little wider in the forefoot WHICH offers a better fit and a lot more comfort. I noticed this about the 16th hole, which is when most of my shoes start giving me trouble.
The THINTECH, low-profile technology gives golfers confidence in wet conditions by offering inproved traction and stability. The shoes also come with two sets of insoles: the FitFOAM sockliner, which offers more comfort then the CLOUDFOAM, which provides lightweight cushioning. Double wide, superlight performance laces are included as well. Adidas ias so high on this product that it comes with a two-year waterproof warranty.
Adizero One golf shoes are designed for both performance and comfort. They fit snuggly (a little too snug for me; I had to go up half a size) and really connect you with the turf. Over the past couple of years, the Adizero line has set the standard in other sport categories, now it is poised to do the same in golf. Revolutionizing the fit, feel and shape of Adidas Golf footwear, this line has been specially-engineered from the ground up and delivers everything a golfer needs to finish strong when he/she starts to drag.
Wearing my new Adizero shoes for a couple of rounds brought back memories of youth baseball and soccer. Why, you ask? It’s the sound they make when you walk across pavement. That same sound heard in NFL and MLB locker rooms as the players move aound. It’s a sound I will always remember.
For cleated, albeit softspike shoes, the Adizero Ones are really comfotable. They also provide a great connection to the turf in various conditions: side hill uphill and sand to be specific. I experienced no foot pain and no break-in period was required.
Adizero One golf footwear comes in a variety of colors and are available at most major golf retailers and online stores. Retail was around $180 but now they can be found at various stores such as Dick’s Sporting goods (both online and brick and mortar) for right around $100. Well worth the investment.
