When it comes to footwear, adidas always seems to be at the forefront, dating back to 1936 when founder Adi Dassler persuaded U.S. sprinter Jesse Owens to wear his handmade track spikes at the 1936 Summer Olympic Games. As we all know, Owens went on to win four gold medals and an iconic shoe company was born. So, when the company introduced a twist on their TOUR 360 BOOST golf shoes, it should have come as no surprise
The TOUR360 XT Primeknit Golf Shoes are quite unique in that they have a knit upper. It’s actually produced with yarn made from recycled ocean plastic and is very soft to the touch from heel to toe.
adidas uses their 360WRAP technology uses a lighter more flexible saddle material for midfoot support to give the shoe unmatched support and cushioning. adidas’ unique TORSION TUNNEL provides independent flexibility and control between the heel and forefoot and enhanced arch support while the full-length BOOST midsole foam energizes the shoe’s cushioning. Overall, The Primeknit shoe is 10% lighter than the TOUR360 2.0.
The TOUR caliber 8-cleat X-Traction Outsole provides improved stability and traction. Thanks to the green-friendly Thintech EXP cleats, you’ll stay connected to the ground regardless of weather conditions. The new INSITE sockliner gives the shoe a snug fit and provides balance.
One of the first things you’ll notice about the new adidas TOUR360 XT Primeknit Golf Shoes is that there is no tongue, which makes the pull strap on the heel an important – and necessary – feature. The knit upper is waterproof with a fit engineered for targeted support. The fit is very comfortable and although it may be lacking in lateral support compared to other adidas shoes, it’s great for a casual golfer.
The Men’s TOUR360 XT Primeknit Golf Shoes are available in sizes 8 – 13 and in a medium width. Available color combinations are Black/Teal, Black/White and Grey/White. You can find them online at https://www.adidas.com/us/tour360-xt-primeknit-shoes/F35407.html.
