WRX Spotlight: Adidas Crossknit 3.0

Published

on

Product: Adidas Crossknit 3.0

Pitch: From Adidas “Get outstanding energy return on every swing with these men’s golf shoes. The spikeless outsole flexes with your foot and is durable enough for everyday play, while a lightweight and water-repellent textile upper keeps your feet dry for all 18 holes. A TPU heel counter and polyurethane welds in the forefoot give you the stability you need to go long off the tee.”

Our take on the Adidas Crossknit 3.0 shoe

The Adidas Crossknit 3.0 is for golfers that love a modern looking golf shoe. These may not be for classicists, and not targeted towards an older clientele, but they are currently very popular with the younger generation, and it’s hardly surprising considering the sleek, trainer-like style.

Not only in the looks department, but the feel of these golf shoes is also unlike the majority of other options on the market. The Crossknit 3.0 is extremely lightweight, which adds to the trainer feel, and the comfort level of the shoes is fabulous. Much of that comfort has to do with the enhanced cushioning that Adidas has provided through their boost midsole. Billed as the companies “most responsive cushioning ever,” the Crossknit 3.0 will offer you as comfortable an 18-hole walk as is possible.

Performance wise, the puremotion outsole of the shoe offers excellent flexibility which adds to the comfort of the shoe, while also delivering superb traction.  Adiwear lugs, forefoot stability welds, TPU stability heel counter and a Torsion system stability bar are the technologies which Adidas has merged to create a spikeless golf shoe which rivals any other shoes turf interaction performance.

The Adiwear outsole adds to the durability of the shoe, and the breathablility, as well as the waterproof element, creates a beautiful blend of resistance and comfort.

The shoes come in five colors:  Dark Blue, Core Black, Night Met and Core Black, Grey Five, and Active Green.

At $150, Adidas has created an extremely flexible and unique looking golf shoe. The Crossknit 3.0 will be popular on the course as well as off it, thanks to the spikeless nature as well as the sneaker look and feel. Fashionable, current, excellent performance-wise (turf interaction in particular), and unrivaled in the comfort department, the Crossknit 3.0 is a shoe which won’t disappoint its target market in any way.

    If these are “not targeted towards an older clientele” than Adidas is missing an oppty. I’m 57 and have two pairs of the crossknit 1.0’s and I regularly play with at least a dozen others in the 55-65 age range that have at least one pair. Comfort and light-weight are attributes we older guys can appreciate even more than the young guns. It’s also been my experience the older guys are a demographic that can afford to drop $150 on multiple pairs of shoes they like without batting an eyelash.

Miura Golf teases Jack Nicklaus collaboration

Published

on

What do you get when you cross Jack Nicklaus—the greatest golfer of all time—with Miura—the most idolized forging company in golf?

Well, we’re not exactly sure—beyond the fact that we have been leaked pictures of a unique forged blade that is a collaboration between the two parties. From what we can see, it’s certainly going to be a very special set of irons.

At GolfWRX, we like to go deeper, and take you behind the curtain of where designs and ideas come from and although we don’t have any specific details of what makes this Miura X Nicklaus blade unique, we have other recent examples of Miura collaborating with companies both in the open and behind the scenes to bring very cool designs to market.

The most recent is the Miura LinkSoul Color Theory Set that consisted of 4 clubs in the lofts of 25, 32, 40, and 49 degrees – we originally covered these irons here: Long live the Half SetIt is one of the first openly recognized collaboration Miura had ever done with another brand.

As for the newly teased iron, it would seem that a collaboration between Nicklaus and Miura would almost be inevitable since both brands are held under the 8AM Golf umbrella, which also has Golf Magazine and True Spec golf, among others, but what makes this different is it’s not about brands—it’s about the best working with the best to create something completely new.

Miura is highly regarded as the premier forging company in golf and Nicklaus is a golfer known for his keen eye and specific attention to detail.

The relationship goes back much further than 8AM Golf, because well before Miura and Nicklaus were under the same umbrella, Jack has been spotted using Miura irons dating back to the mid 2010s.

For the time being, there is going to be a lot of speculation on what the design details of this Miura X Nicklaus iron will mean for both Katsuhiro Miura, the founder of Miura Golf, and Jack Nicklaus—two of the most respected men in their fields.

Without a doubt, this is going to be a highly sought after set of clubs when they are announced, and we will bring you more details as we have them.

What GolfWRXers are saying about the best Nike driver ever

Published

on

@ukgolfclubsales

In our forums, our members have been discussing Nike drivers. WRXer ‘DixieD’ is currently building up a Nike bag and has reached out to fellow members for driver advice, and WRXers have been sharing what they feel is the best Nike driver ever made.

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.

  • Ger21: “VR Pro LE? I have two I was still playing last year.”
  • mahonie: “The STR8-Fit Tour was one of the best drivers I’ve played. Still have it the garage and take it to the range occasionally…it would possibly still be in the bag if it hadn’t developed a ‘click’ in the head which I cannot fix. Long, straight(ish) and nice sound.”
  • jackr189: “The VR_S is one of the best.”
  • Finaus_Umbrella: “I played the Vapor Fly Pro, and still do on occasion for nostalgia sake. Sound and feel are great, but it demands a good strike.”
  • PowderedToastMan: “I enjoyed the SQ Tour back in the day, the one Tiger used forever. Do I miss it? Not at all, but it was a pretty good club for its time.”
