Adidas Golf launches its new Tour360 golf shoes

Published

on

Dustin Johnson has been wearing Adidas Golf’s Tour360 Boost shoes, which launched in 2015, for the last few years. In that span of time, he won his first-ever major at the 2016 U.S. Open at Oakmont, he ascended to No. 1 in the Official World Golf Rankings — a position which he still currently holds — and he recorded three wins in a row in early 2017. That’s quite a run while wearing the Tour360 Boost.

“Of all the models I’ve tried over the years, the Tour360 Boost has been my favorite,” Johnson said in a press release from Adidas Golf. “When the Adidas team first came to me to get my thoughts on how to improve it, I told them I didn’t want them to change a thing. Seriously. But we challenged each other to take the new Tour360 to the next level.”

When Johnson showed up to the 2017 Northern Trust, however, he was wearing something different on his feet… a new version of Adidas’ Tour360 Boost. And after taking a five-month hiatus from the winners’ circle, Johnson hit a 340-yard drive that nearly broke the Internet to defeat Jordan Spieth in a one-hole playoff to win the event, his first tournament ever wearing the shoes.

At the time, we could do nothing but speculate what the new shoes were, but Adidas has officially announced the launch of its new Tour360 shoes today.

The new shoes have a 10-cleat "puremotion TPU outsole" with CenTraXion and thintech cleats

The most significant changes compared to the Tour360 Boost shoes come in the look of the shoe. For the first time in quite some time, a Tour360 shoe will have a clean toe box — minus the familiar dual seams in the toe. They also have a more rounded toe shape for a “more natural fit,” according to Adidas.

Also, the familiar S-Curve in the heel has been removed. The shoe now features a traditional heel curve with the addition of premium leather for both stability and durability (as pictured below). According to Global Footwear Director at Adidas Golf, Masun Denison, the shoes will have a more wide-ranging appeal for golfers with the changes to the heel and toe. Overall, the shoes also provide a more “classic look,” in Denison’s words, with a “rich leather upper,” a “high-polished finish” and a “more streamlined design.”

“Our quest to create the perfect golf shoe just got one step closer with this new Tour360,” Denison said in a press release. “Our original Tour360 Boost rose to being the best-selling shoe in the U.S. market last year, so we know golfers are going to appreciate these updates that we’ve made to what was already a great product.”

The performance aspects of the shoe have also been fine-tuned. The new Tour360 wrap has been designed to give golfers more stability throughout the swing by way of raised TPU (thermoplastic urethane) plate. There’s also more support for the upper portion of the foot with a new leather collar, and with what the company calls “Sprintskin” in the inner lining, which is a lightweight microfiber. The bridge, or “Torsion Tunnel,” underneath the midsole that was featured in the previous shoes design also appears in the new Tour360 2.0; that’s because the design was proven to increase traction, according to Denison.

“I couldn’t be more excited with how this shoe turned out,” Johnson said. Those are big words from someone who didn’t even want to change his old Tour360 Boost shoes in the first place.

Adidas Golf’s new Tour360 shoes will be available in early October in three introductory colorways (White/Black, Black/White and White/Blue) and they will sell for $200. According to Adidas, additional colorways will be released in 2018.

    Adidas are dead comfy , cushion soled , waterproof gems .

    they perform well in the wet by having the extended heel , your trouser lower edge sits in the heel section ,stopping the trouser dragging in wet grass . ( Stopping soggy socks , envy of golf players )

    Brilliant bit of engineering by adidas…… sadly this has been deleted .

    A change of heel material is the brands recognition that the current model isn’t durable enough. Given the rising prices of footwear the brands have a duty to Mate the cost with quality. I have had 5 pairs of Tour 360 all the backs wore through within 10 rounds. Will give these a whirl as the fit is good for me.

    I’m glad to see the bridge. But I HATE BOOST! It is so incredibly unstable, I can’t keep my balance during the swing. Also, where is the BOA? Boa is so much better than laces. I like a shoe that’s tied tight. Leather tends to stretch during use, so the Boa is handy to make the shoe snug again quickly.

    Yes to the bridge. No to Boost. Bring the Boa.

    Have at least eight pairs of Adidas golf shoes and all have lasted only a short period of time. The are comfortable for me, but as mentioned wear out quickly, especially in the heel, and clogs with grass, and the uppers stain. Repeated washing has does little for this dew sweeper. This new line looks cheaply made. Also what did you expect DJ to say about hem, he’s a paid employee. What spikes does DJ use?

    You guys have no idea WTF your talking about. I love my 360s and I’m glad to see they are making improvements on them.

      IOW they are still a WORK IN PROGRESS …. but when will they get it right?

    • Rich Douglas

      Sep 7, 2017 at 9:41 pm

      The original 360s were the best. Add Boa and get rid of Boost and these would be the best shoes EVER.

    love the style of Adidas golf shoes but the fit is just awful for me. every pair is narrow in the toe and wide in the heel. Not a good fit for me, personally.

      You would come out of your shoes in a side hill down slope shot ….lol

    Theres a gap in the current line – and I have not seen any grass accumulate in mine. Im also an early morning dewsweeper.

    Problems:
    1. The exposed white out soles will permanently stain brown.
    2. The sole will clog with grass, sand and mud at the spikes and sole patterns indents.
    3. The narrow toe box is fine for dress shoes, but a squared toe box allows the toe spread.
    4. The shoe lace throat does not accommodate high instep and narrow feet, and insertion.
    5. The midsole ‘tunnel’ reduces ground reaction force pressure area at the instep. Bad.
    6. Too much white. Black is okay. Better for shoe polishing.

      So they are the same as the previous model then? LOL

      Well then don’t buy them. They look awesome. Love the move to the rounder toe, and the no heel curve (looks weird w shorts). Yeah it really looks like DJ is losing traction when he swings. Serious?

  11. Rich

    Sep 6, 2017 at 1:49 pm

    How about the weight and flex ?

  12. Leezer

    Sep 6, 2017 at 12:20 pm

    As a morning dewsweeper I can only imagine the amount of grass that’s going to accumulate in that gap under the arch.

    • Rich Douglas

      Sep 7, 2017 at 9:44 pm

      It really doesn’t because there’s nothing there to which the grass can cling.

    Is the heal going to wear out like last model very disapointed in Adidas

      So they are the same as the previous model then? LOL
      They have not fixed this issue in 4 models!!!
