Ah the links. That humongous grassy green playing surface, with it’s rolling hills, mini-beaches, roughs, and traps. Millions of Americans and non-Americans get their clubs in order, and new balls cleaned ready to take on 18 holes of fun, competition, and usually beautiful weather. Before you can head out to the course for some drives, puts, and chips, you have to have the right gear. Some dress fancy, some casually, and some put very little clothing on at all, but in the end, every golfer needs his golf shoes. Recently, many golfers not named Tiger Woods have been signing deals and advertising new golf gear including cleats.
Now, Adidas has come out with a golf shoe that is considerably lighter than the average. At 10.6 ounces per shoe, which is lighter by 28% from the average, this golf cleat mean easier movement during a swing as well as between them. Professional golfer Sergio Garcia is modeling this line, and says, “I’m always looking to add comfort and lightweight elements to my game.” The major problem with the shoe isn’t the technology that went into it, but the mix of banana and fluorescent yellow that adorns the outside of the cleats. Fortunately for golf fans and potential customers, the shoes come in black, white, and yellow.
