Adidas launches limited-edition ZX 8000 Golf shoe

Published

on

Adidas Golf has unveiled the first-ever ZX model built for golf – the limited-edition ZX 8000 Golf.

The Adidas Originals’ ZX series, first released in 1984, was born from the idea that runners need a variety of footwear options depending on the type of run, surface or training they were looking to accomplish. Built from that philosophy, Adidas Golf has created the ZX 8000 Golf blending style with technology.

The new release features the brand’s patented Torsion System – designed for added stability – a responsive BOOST midsole, and vibrant colorways (clear aqua/shock yellow with pops of purple).

The shoes contain water-resistant materials in the upper to help offer protection from the elements, and a spikeless outsole which is built upon the original grip pattern. This outsole features golf-specific secondary lugs and a more aggressive tread pattern in design to provide added grip and stability along with comfort.

In addition, the ZX 8000 Golf shoe features a lace jewel with the words “ZX GOLF” at the bottom of the eyestay, a leather toecap, as well as an Adidas Golf logo on the heel and sockliner.

Speaking on the new footwear, Masun Denison, global footwear director, Adidas Golf said

“As the original sports brand, we are in a unique position to draw on our extensive archives for inspiration. The ZX was always meant to challenge the way people thought about running performance, and we wanted to do the same with golf footwear by pushing the limits with technology and fashion. Offering the ZX 8000 Golf is just another example of how we combine sports heritage, performance and lifestyle to ultimately push golf fashion in a more progressive way.”

The limited-edition ZX 8000 Golf ($130) will be available via Adidas.com, the Adidas app and at select retailers outside of the U.S. beginning September 4 at 8 a.m. PT.

    That’s not a golf shoe. It provides nothing one would ask for in a shoe specific for golf. How does this differ from a running shoe or training flats?

    I want three things, in this order, from a golf shoe: 1. Traction. 2. Stability. 3. Comfort.

    I don’t want a shoe I can wear to the store after a round. I don’t want a shoe that sacrifices 1 and 2 in favor of 3. I want a shoe that will not slip and will provide me with lateral stability. If it doesn’t make my feet hurt, all the better.

    Again, this isn’t a golf shoe. It’s a slipper with laces.

New for 2021, Callaway Supersoft and Supersoft Max golf balls

Published

on

Callaway Golf has introduced its new Supersoft and Supersoft Max golf balls, both of which are loaded with the brand’s latest technology.

2021 Callaway Supersoft golf balls

The latest Supersoft balls from Callaway contain a new hybrid cover featuring a Paraloid Impact Modifier made by DOW Chemical. This new impact modifier allowed engineers to create a multi-material construction designed to provide a combination of faster ball speeds, high launch and low spin, soft feel, durability, and maximum greenside control.

 

The high-speed soft compression core of the new Supersoft ball aims to maximize energy transfer to increase ball speeds while promoting a high launch and low spin in longer clubs for more distance.

In addition, the HEX Aerodynamics on the new ball is optimized in design to reduce drag and enhance lift for increased carry and higher flight.

 

Specs, Availability & Pricing

Color Codes: White, Yellow, Green, Orange, Pink, Red

Availability: February 4, 2021

Price: $22.99 per dozen

2021 Callaway Supersoft Max golf balls

Billed as Callaway’s longest golf ball for slower swing speeds, the new Supersoft Max balls feature an oversized design engineered to provide increased consistency and high launch while conforming to golf rules.

The company’s Tri-Blend ionomer cover found in the Supersoft Max balls is specifically built to increase ball speed. This cover material is also designed to create the perfect blend of high launch and low spin in your longer clubs.

The high speed, low compression core aims to enhance energy transfer and provide a maximum super soft feel. Simultaneously, the added forgiveness in the ball is designed to promote more consistent contact for increased distance.
