Adidas to sell limited-edition “Pimento Cheese” golf shoes

Published

on

There’s never an official winner announced, but every year there seems to be an unspoken competition between golf companies to release the coolest Augusta-themed apparel, gear, golf clubs or special offerings. As the year’s first major, The Masters drips in tradition, and the iconic green-and-yellow color scheme lends its hand to festive, one-off releases; it’s a perfect storm.

This year, Adidas is an early front-runner for most creative Augusta-themed product with its Pimento Cheese sandwich-inspired golf shoe. The $1.50 sandwich is an Augusta National/Masters staple (although I’m on record giving it only 3-out-of-10 azaleas).

The all-white colorway on the Crossknit Boost shoes represents the sandwich’s white bread, while the sock-liner is designed to depict the pimento cheese concoction. Hints of Augusta green are also visible on the heel and toe (for obvious reasons). Like the pimento cheese sandwich that comes in a green wrapper on Augusta’s grounds, the shoes will come with a green footwear bag.

Technologically, the Crossknit Boost shoes are made with a circleknit upper for breathability and comfort. They also have a boost midsole made from TPU (thermoplastic urethane) pellets for cushion and energy transfer, as well as a spikeless Adiwear sole for traction.

The Pimento Cheese-inspired, Limited Edition Crossknit Boost shoes will be available for $180 on April 3 at adidasgolf.com.

    OK? It is a white golf shoe with an orange liner. I have some Eccos that are the same. I guess that they were the Augusta version.

    Of course they did. Everything at Augusta is green, so the tmag guys have to outsmart themselves again. “Everyone is doing green”…”well, yeah, that’s their official color”….”but if we do green we’ll be the same as everyone else. Let’s do yellow instead”….”yellow? How do we sell that at Augusta?”….”We’re taylormade. They’ll buy it because we sell it.”

What GolfWRXers are saying about Kevin Kisner’s new Callaway X Forged CB irons

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing Kevin Kisner’s new Callaway X Forged CB irons which he has in the bag at this week’s CJ Cup. WRXers have been commenting on the switch and the clubs themselves in our forums.

For lots more photos, check out the full thread here.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • btyh: “Holy offset.”
  • Glf_LU: “These are interesting. Not going to make a rush to judgement until I see them in person. It does look like a little more offset than I would expect to see in this model.”
  • bcflyguy1: “Kisner is not one to make a lot of equipment changes (see the GBB driver he’s still using), so if these do have staying power in his bag that will be interesting to see. I have to wonder if there’s something different about his set, because like others have mentioned there appears to be more offset on his than I recall seeing in the samples I’ve had in hand.”

WATCH: PGA Tour players play hole blindfolded and it’s hilarious/amazing

Published

on

As part of a Srixon campaign, four PGA Tour players recently participated in a three-hole challenge, with each hole being a different game; hole No. 1 was blindfolded, hole No. 2 was costumes and distractions, and hole No. 3 was alternate shot with a baseball bat. The teams were Smylie Kaufman and Sam Ryder against Shane Lowry and Grayson Murray.

Watch the full video below, since it is quite entertaining (albeit not the type of golf that Old Tom Morris surely had in mind), but in particular, make sure to check out the first hole where Lowry and Ryder play a full hole completely blind folded. It’s amazing to watch how badly Ryder struggles, and how Lowry nearly makes par.

Cleveland-Srixon’s marketing department has been hard at work crafting these viral-esque ad campaigns; if you remember, former long-drive champion Jamie Sadlowski recently dressed as 80-year-old Grandpa Jamie to fool range-goers. That video has since gathered over 1.2 million views on YouTube.

Think you had a bad weekend on the course? At least you didn’t do this

We hope this golfer didn’t take the ultra-premium golf equipment plunge before sending his clubs to a watery grave. Either way, this was an expensive (and strangely calm) reaction to a bad round.
