Adidas tour360 x Footwear Collection

Published

on

The next generation Tour360 is here.

Adidas Golf announced the release of its tour360 x footwear collection, which includes the tour360 x BOA that has an adjustable dial on the tongue. While it’s not the first golf shoe ever to have an adjustability feature, the Boa IP-1 dial, also called a Boa Closure System, will allow golfers to customize how the shoe fits for maximum comfort.

The “x” in tour360 “x” signifies the nine spikes arranged in an X-pattern on the outsole. Th re-engineered thintech TPU outsole, made with the company’s familiar CenTraXion technology, was also sculpted to reduce weight but increase flexibility and stability.

As expected, the tour360 x collection incorporated adidas’ 360WRAP technology for maximum performance and comfort. Other technologies include a microfiber leather upper to reduce weight without sacrificing aesthetics, climaproof in the upper to keep your feet dry in wet conditions and EVA foam in the mid-sole to increase comfort.

The tour360 x will be available starting Nov. 1 in six colorways, then in three additional colorways on Feb. 1, 2015, both with an MSRP of $140. The tour360 x BOA, which will be available in two colorways starting Dec. 1, will carry an MSRP of $180.

    Looking at a pair of these but have had the same issue with the inner heel with my last 2 pairs of 360’s. How’s the heel in these ones? Considering FJ DNA? Thoughts?

    I am Adidas fan for long time, tennis shoes Barricade, running shoes, golf shoes… currently on Adidas 360 atv m1… the grip is like a Velcro during whole swing motion… like glued to the ground. with more confidence and stability everything is asking for more speed and power!!!

    Glad to hear others had problems with the inner heel. I thought it was just my fat feet.

    My old tour 360’s are the most comfortable golf shoe I’ve ever owned. Like others I agree that these look good and hoping for a little better durability on the inside…

    Also went through a pair of 360 series in 8 rounds because of inner heal wear. Hopefully its improved.

    Adidas has finally realized that people have larger and wider feet. And I love their shoes, but finally with this past year the toe boxes are wider. And I like this “traditional” yet athletic looking shoe.

    Microfiber leather. Plastic in other words.

      No, not plastic. I’m in the leather business. Microfiber leather is synthetic to be sure, but there are different grades of it, just like in traditional leather products. They probably had to balance out cost and quality and chose something that was water resistant, yet somewhat breathable. But no, not plastic.

    I wore the 360 series for quite a while, but got fed up with the inner heels wearing out after 20 games.

    I bought pair of spiked Addicross and amlost immediately bought to other colours.

    These look like a bit of a cross between them.

      Agreed Martin. I have never had to change spikes in them because the inner heal wears out quicker.

2021 Virtual PGA Show: Things we loved, Day 1

Published

on

As promised, we’re checking out all the digital booths at the 2021 Virtual PGA Show for items of intrigue and note, and we’ve found no shortage of interesting items.

Here are a few of our favorites from our first day of browsing.

(More on the 2021 Virtual PGA Show here)

Altaz rangefinder

That’s not a flip screen video camera—it’s an alternative to playing pirate with a telescope to acquire distances. 

Product description: Our rangefinder adds an external 3″ LCD screen which makes it much easier to search the target. No more twitching eye, sunglass in the way, or shakey hand, our rangefinder eliminates all the problems that many golfers experience. It is simple as using similar to digital camcorders, just point, and press. Golf will get the right distance to help them select the right club to improve their scores.

Sik Component Bag

We like this presentation of the buffet of options for Sik putters both for the fitting capabilities and the minimal use of shop square footage for retailers…and of course, if you’re a real gearhead, you just buy the thing for personal use. 

Product description: Become a SIK Golf retailer with SIK Golf’s Component Bag, a complete matrix of interchangeable heads, hosels, and gripped shafts that are ready to assemble into every possible SIK putter combination. The Component Bag also includes multiple standard shaft lengths and Armlock setups for your customers to test drive. Displayed and stored in a classic SIK Golf Staff Bag, featuring organized and compartmentalized drawers.

Custom Golf Bag Hoods

We’ve seen specialty bag hoods before, but nothing on the level that Custom Golf Bag Hoods is doing.

Company info: Custom Golf Bag Hoods was created so that golfers around the world could dress their bag up from the ugly black rain hood you get when you buy the golf bag which eventually you’ll end up losing or miss placing it. CGBH are made of water-resistant nylon fabric with a 24-inch zipper and vinyl leather piping to keep the hood upright and sturdy, velcro straps to secure it to the bag, and DIY button snaps to make your own buttons in the position of your existing snaps on your bag.

Areso Golf: RW Design Wedge

While we can’t speak to the feel or performance, the materials story is compelling and the aesthetics would definitely earn these wedges a test at a traditional PGA Show Demo Day!

Product info: RW Design Wedges are made from forging carbon steel and milled face for maximum spin around the greens. Grooves and face are machined for spin and face variable thickness controlled for performance.

Ecco: Biom H4 shoe

An enhanced, improved, and even more stylish version of one of the most popular designs on the market. What’s not to love?

Product description: The ECCO BIOM H4 is made in durable ECCO leather with a slick, micro-perforated embossing and GORE-TEX waterproof technology to keep your feet dry even in wet conditions. The new ECCO MTN GRIP outsole features our signature FLUIDFORM™ Technology, as well as an eye-catching PU midsole with TPU inserts on either side that securely hug your foot and offer added stability and support while you’re on the green.

Puttist Putting Meter 

We may be biased, as our James Chang covered the Puttist back in November, but this is one of the most unique training aids on the market. 

Product description: Puttist Inc. was established in 2009 for “PUTTIST”, the first putting meter in the world. Don’t practice, just have fun with distance-metering game up to 50ft. Your score will go up so naturally and no more suffering from 3-putt. That is why people call “PUTTIST” 3-putt Killer! Rechargeable and Plug-in model available for meter and feet. Just Putt & Win!

Website: www.puttist.com

PuttView: The Book

There are plenty of green book vendors, but Puttview’s stylish presentation of the maximum amount of information allowed under USGA rules definitely caught our eye. 

Product description: PuttView’s “The Book” is the component that brings your indoor and outdoor experience together. Every detail of “The Book” was designed to help you save a shot under the most critical tournament situations. PuttView’s technology and attention to detail results in the most accurate book allowable under the Rules of Golf.
