Published

We spotted Dustin Johnson wearing what looks to be new Adidas Tour360 shoes at the 2017 Northern Trust on Tuesday.

Johnson, who’s currently ranked No. 1 in the Official World Golf Rankings, has been wearing Adidas’ Tour360 Boost shoes the last few years, which includes his ascension to the world’s top ranking and his first major victory. But when he stepped on the range for the first event of the 2017 FedExCup Playoffs, he was wearing something different from Adidas.

While Adidas is not currently commenting on the new shoes, they look to be an upgraded version of the Tour360 Boost with some slight adjustments. They still look to have Boost technology in the soles, but the toe box looks to be clean, without the seams on the toe for which Tour360 has been known in the past. What do you think about Johnson’s new shoes from Adidas?

Update: 8/23/17

We spotted Johnson wearing a slightly different colorway on Wednesday with blue hits on the Adidas stripes instead of the white stripes pictured above.

    All new shoes are a little bit hard on your feet.
    Highlighted more so when you are walking miles on rough terrain .

    I found 360 Boost shoes very comfy out of the box , but not everyone is the same .

    also poor socks can factor in the way the shoes rub away the skin

    These shoes are horrible for my feet. I wore a pair for 18 holes and pretty much tore up my feet. Theses are suppose to come out of the box ready. I think not!

    For sale: $100.00 last years model size 12, wore once.

    I love the comfyness of the shoes. I still hate the fact that a premium pair of shoes like this makes it look like styrofoam is the latest and greatest technology that they have. If i am paying that much for shoes they can at least clean that up.

    I hate Boost. It feels like I’m on springs. Uncontrollable springs. I don’t need to jump at the ball. I need shoes that feel steady and keep me planted. I loved the Tour360 without the Boost and would still be playing them–especially if they came with BOA! Those were, truly, the best shoes I ever wore onto a golf course.

    Get rid of Boost, bring in BOA, and sign me up for life.

    I’ve worn the 360 series for a few years and they keep getting better with each generation, most comfortable shoes I’ve had. And these new ones without the seams is much improved looks wise. Looking forward to a new pair next season I guess.

    ‘Boost technology’ in golf shoes? Do they increase your height by several inches?

Playing without irons? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the prospect of playing golf without irons. WRXer ‘nostatic’ has been pondering using only a combination of hybrids and wedges, saying:

“Perhaps heretical and insane (guilty), but given the prevalence of good hybrids and good wedges, I’m wondering if anyone has forsaken their irons (or almost all of them) and gone with a combination of head covers and wedges.
Some of it is semantics (when is a 9i a 9i?), but you can get almost any wedge of your choice (I’m loving my Fourteens),

60/56/50/45 (the 45 is a 46 bent 1*). You can do something like G425 hybrids 34/30/26/22 (then on to woods of your choice). For those with slower swing speeds, 4*-5* between clubs can work for gapping. And the hybrids are adjustable, so you can hit the 34 at 35. Then you really only need a 40* club (pick your favorite 9-ish iron).”

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.

  • NHenson815: “I am actually thinking about doing this in my next round. I am so bad with short irons and wedges that I’m better off attempting to distance control my 11 wood instead. I’ll carry a 64 degree wedge for short shots (odd that I have confidence in that but not a 7 iron – I know), but that will be the only non-wood/non-hybrid in the bag.”
  • 596: “I have more covers in my bag than not. Head covers for woods and hybrids down through 7 iron. 8 is the longest iron in my bag. You just have to get over hitting a 32* hybrid from 155. It feels weird. I’m a high single-digit handicap. Shot even par for 9 holes yesterday. Which seems to be the case lately. I’ll shoot 36 to 38 on the front, then 40 or 42 on the back as my back goes south and the heat gets crazy.”
  • Obee: “I’m not a “great” player, but thank you for the thought. I do carry 8-iron, 9-iron, and 4 wedges, so not exactly “all” hybrids/woods, though I could make that work, I’m sure.”
