Want to lose some weight next time you play golf? How about 6900 pounds? That’s how much less you’ll be lifting with your feet if you lace up the Adidas adizero Golf Shoes next time out. You see, the new adizero weighs only 10.6 ounces, which is 38% less than Adidas’ previous tour performance shoe, the Tour ATV, and that translates into a savings of 6.5 ounces per step taken. Since the average round can take 17,000 steps, you will save 6900 pounds (6.5 x 17,000) by wearing the new adizero.
Adidas eliminates weight through what it calls the SprintFrame™ outsole, which weighs just 3.4 ounces and is constructed from a high performance, proprietary elastomer called Pebax® that is exceedingly strong and exceptionally flexible. The upper is a microfiber leather called SprintSkin™ that is (surprise) lightweight and durable. The outsole has rounded sections allowing for more efficient weight transfer and a ten spike configuration with a high-abrasion rubber heel crash pad for a better heel strike while walking. The adizero is constructed from a new anatomical last that is wider in the forefoot, allowing improved fit and feel.
Lighter upper + lighter outsole = less fatigue + better scores. The math is simple. Ok, that “equation” is not really math, but you get the point. Now get the shoes. You’ll find them right here at DGW.
