Adidas adipower Boost golf shoes

Published

on

Adidas’ new Adipower Boost and Adipower Sport Boost golf shoes are designed to energize and stabilize your golf swing with the company’s Boost and GripMore technologies.

Boost, Adidas’ name for its foam cushioning made from thermoplastic urethane (TPU), is used in the sole of the heel of the shoes to maximize energy transfer from the ground to your feet. The technology was first introduced in Adidas’ running shoes, and is currently used the basketball shoes of NBA star Derrick Rose.

For golfers, the technology is useful during the swing to help load energy on the backswing and unload energy into impact, while also helping golfers keep the bounce in their step when walking the course.

According to Masun Denison, Adidas’ director of global marketing, Boost also has durability advantages over EVA foam, which is used in the construction of many premium golf shoes.

“EVA FOAM IS MADE FROM OPEN CELLS THAT ALLOW AIR TO ESCAPE LEADING THEM TO BREAKDOWN OVER TIME, ESPECIALLY IN HOT CONDITIONS,” SAYS MASUN DENISON, DIRECTOR OF GLOBAL PRODUCT MARKETING. “BOOST DOESN’T CHANGE PROPERTIES WITH HEAT.”

Boost foam starts as thousands of small, clear pellets of TPU, which are cooked under heat and popped like popcorn into foam cushions. The popcorn-like foam is then steam molded back into the material used to construct the soles of the shoes.

Adidas has also added its Gripmore spike technology to the Boost shoes. Gripmore was developed from extensive player testing and heat map studies, and uses 25 non-removable spikes that are smaller than normal spikes. They work with other traction elements on the soles of the shoes to give golfers more traction and stability.

There are three models of adiPower Boost shoes available: Adipower Boost ($190), Adipower Boa Boost ($229) and Adipower Sport Boost ($150). They’ll be in stores Feb. 27.

    Adidas shoes look great but their durability is awful. I swear by their casual trainers and running shoes but the Golf shoes just don’t cut the mustard. Form and toughness win over fashion points on a wet course…

    Whatever happened to getting as low to the ground as possible? These look like Nike with lots of cushion?

    I’m a FootJoy Contour fan and like the BOA closure system. I wonder the durability of the permanent spikes. I’ll check them out for fit when they arrive.

      Really do you work for them? Shoes need to last more than 15 or 20 rounds. With no replaceable spikes this will never happen $190.00 bucks for a throughout shoe?

        What about all the people who buy Ecco biom 2 for 200. Those are spike less. These spike on the boost will last much longer. They are much more firm. I love them.

        i doubt anyone could physically wear the spikes out in 15, let alone 20 rounds.

Coolest thing for sale in the GolfWRX Classifieds (10/13/21): Adams MB2 Raw irons

Published

on

At GolfWRX, we love golf, plain and simple.

We are a community of like-minded individuals that all experience and express our enjoyment of the game in many ways. It’s that sense of community that drives day-to-day interactions in the forums on topics that range from best driver to what marker you use to mark your ball. It even allows us to share another thing we all love – buy and selling equipment.

Currently, in our GolfWRX buy/sell/trade (BST) forum, there is a listing for a set of Adams MB2 Raw irons

From the seller (@skaarsgard): “Adams MB2 RAW  irons 4-P + G w/ Steelfiber i95 Stiff (Plus bonus 56* and shaft), G wedge w/ C Taper, clubs +1/2″length, and lies / lofts measure standard.  $475. 

The GW has a C Taper shaft and I am throwing in a 56* Edilon Sand Wedge which has the Steelfiber shaft should you want to use it. This shaft has some cosmetic damage near the hosel but certainly does not impact performance. The 9 iron struck a rock in a tournament – tried to capture close ups in pictures.  I don’t think it impacts performance as I never noticed it.  Aside from that grooves are still sharp and in way above average shape. 

Ping Midsize feeling grips. Used one round last month but aside from that, unused since 2014-2015 timeframe. These are amazingly forgiving and wonderful clubs – all-time irons.”

To check out the full listing in our BST forum, head through the link: Adams MB2 Raw irons

This is the most impressive current listing from the GolfWRX BST, and if you are curious about the rules to participate in the BST Forum you can check them out here: GolfWRX BST Rules
