adidas adipure and adicross II golf shoes

adidas Golf has introduced the new adicross II which combines all of the performance benefits of a traditional golf shoe with the off-course versatility and contemporary styling of a casual shoe.

The adicross II features new, strategically-placed square-shaped traction lugs and updated outsole design to promote improved traction and to reduce marking on the putting surface.  New "flex grooves" are positioned at the forefoot to promote superior flexibility, natural feel and solid sole-to-ground contact throughout the swing.

Infused with classic adidas styling, adicross II's full-grain leather upper is both lightweight and durable while offering a rich look and feel.  And for the first time golfers can choose between a classic lace-up and a fashion-forward Velcro-strap.

Offered in medium and wide widths, the lace-up version of the shoe is available in three colorways: Black/Dark Silver Metallic/Dark Silver Metallic, Tan Brown/Black/Scout Metallic., Running White/ Tan Brown/Energy. The velcro-strap version will come in two colorways:  Running White/Black/Fashion Performance Glow and Black/Dark Silver/Fashion Performance Highlighter.

adidas' new adipure motion footwear is the latest evolution engineered to increase stability with flexibility, increasing a golfer's contact with the ground throughout the swing.

The new, elevated adipure motion utilizes revolutionary materials and state-of-the-art outsole construction aimed at freeing the foot and body to move in the way it was inherently meant to, from the ground up to the shoulders.

Weighing-in at 5 ounces less and 23-percent lighter than the previous adipure model, adipure motion features a 7-spike, ultra-light exoskeleton outsole with proprietary puremotion technology designed to provide dynamic movement and ultimate flexibility.

An ultra-soft, full-grain aniline leather upper and lining provides superior comfort, while an x-pattern overlay on the heel provides stability in the heel. On the inside, an updated CLOUDFOAM insole delivers everlasting comfort and lightweight cushioning.

Available in medium and wide widths, adipure motion comes in three colorways choices: Black / Black / Black, Brown / Brown / Scout Metallic, and  Running White / Running White / Black.
