Equipment review: Adizero One
The blue on blue color scheme for the new Adidas golf shoes for 2014 is excellent.
I was a big fan of the first version of the Adizero golf shoe that came out at the beginning of 2013 and the 2014 version has only gotten better.
These kicks look great (my wife said "oooh, those colors are great") and fit even better. They wear like a lightweight tennis shoe but still grip like a golf shoe.
I've long been a skeptic of most Adidas gear so you know if I love an Adidas product then it's pretty freaking great.
Sergio Garcia agrees.
One thing I love that Adidas is doing is getting lighter. They didn't start light and then say "how can we make this more like a traditional golf shoe?"
They started light and said "how can we make this more non-traditional? What can we take away that will make it even lighter for the average golfer?"
As a consumer and advocate of walking over riding in a cart, I'm on board with that attitude.
Jason Day said something similar.
"When I first saw the Adizero One, I couldn’t wait to get them on my feet," Day. "With the low-profile design, I can really feel the ground beneath my feet and the power generated from my swing is definitely noticeable. I’m excited to wear these on tour."
I'm with him on the low-profile design. That's the "tennis shoe" feel I'm talking about.
Also, as a fan of good-looking shoes, I like what Adidas has done with its colorways this year. Lots of blues and silvers and then a couple of orange and black pairs. Thumbs up on all of that.
The Adizero One golf shoe will be available January 23 and will retail for $180.
