The product

The adicross gripmore golf shoes are Adidas' latest stab at creating an elite, lightweight golf shoe. They are a pretty slick combination of strength and versatility and one of the most comfortable golf shoes I've ever worn.

How do they work?

The adicross gripmore utilizes 43 gripmore cleats and a total of 243 points of contact for the ultimate combination of versatility and performance.

Justin Rose actually debuted the kicks back in March.

"I’m always looking for footwear that provides traction without compromising comfort, style or on-course performance," said Rose. "With gripmore, I have the versatility of a spikeless shoe combined with the performance of a cleated shoe. It’s the best of both styles."

Why do you need them?

Like I said before, this is one of the most comfortable golf shoes I've ever worn. I like to walk a lot when I play and I don't want to be weighed down. The problem with that is that it usually results in a shoe that isn't powerful. 

Not the case with these kicks.

Who wears them?

Well Justin Rose and Jim Furyk do. Matt Kuchar tried them for a bit. And Martin Kaymer just won the Players Championship in these guys. So that's pretty cool.

How much are they?

These kicks will be released on June 1 and retail for $150. They are available in aluminum / running white / light scarlet, running white / running white / light scarlet and black/ running white / light scarlet.
