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?

How did heavier or lighter shafts affect your iron performance? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing shaft weight and how it affects their iron play. WRXer ‘RoyalMustang’ kicks off the thread asking two questions:

“1) If you went lighter, how did it impact your game (down to 95-105g). Tempo changes, good or bad?   

2) If you went heavier (120-130g), same question? Good move?”

And our members have been sharing their experiences in our forum.

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.

  • gripandrip: “Average about 105 on my driver swing speed… not much more anymore. Currently playing to a ~2 HC. Switched from DGS300 to Steelfiber i95. No issues for me at all. I stayed with DG400’s in my wedges. Initially, I thought I had issues with dispersion, but after a couple of rounds, it was no longer a concern.”
  • mackepa: “I have found that around 120 grams is the “sweet spot” for my iron game. Anything heavier, and I start swinging hard to try to get the shaft to feel like it’s loading. Anything lighter than 120, and it starts to feel like a toothpick. I tend to also play my irons over length since I’m a little taller. I currently swing driver about 110mph, but I don’t really go after my irons with the same effort. I currently love the KBS $-Taper 120 Stiff.”
  • erikro: “Biggest difference for me is with the s300 shaft I feel it more the next morning. With a 105 gram shaft I have no trouble.”
  • Ri_Redneck: “I play graphite iron shafts, but only 115g and higher. I like a club with some heft. If they get too light, it throws my sequencing off, and balls go everywhere. I can’t say I’ve ever gotten too heavy in my irons, but 80g is the top of what I like in my driver and FWs.”
