Adidas golf shoes review: Tour 360 XT
Now with both a cleated and spikeless shoe option Adidas have expanded the Tour 360 range to provide a shoe for everyone. As always with Tour 360 straight away you can see they have an eye-catching modern design.
Here is the spiked model:
And in spikeless:
We have seen already seen many tour players make the switch to the new model and wear the spikeless version including Dustin Johnson and Xander Schauffele.
One of the key features of the new Adidas Tour 360 XT is the TPU outsole. A new eight-spike execution is combined with the X-Traxion secondary lugs for additional grip and stability. Adidas have removed two spikes in this new version, this allows for increased flexibility but also an increase in comfort by decreasing the weight of the shoe.
Players will appreciate full-length boost in the midsole, providing unparalleled energy return and even more comfort throughout the round. The Boost pieces in the heel and forefoot are now slightly wider and move through larger expansion holes on the bottom to improve both stability and comfort. The new boost cushioning has a lower-profile execution for improved aesthetics while also giving players a better feel with the ground.
The new range gets its name due to the X-shaped traction system on the sole of the shoe. The X-shaped lugs provide more stability as they increase ground contact due to their eight-sided touch points with the ground. The traction system is designed to provide the best grip without sacrificing any comfort.
The Tour 360 XT SL is the first spikeless Tour 360 shoe from Adidas. The sole features the X-Traxion lug system. The X-shape lugs also vary in height, allowing for some lugs to go deeper into the ground, which adidas found to help increase overall traction.
The shoe also uses the X-Torsion system through the midfoot to provide more stability throughout the swing. The X-Torsion system features an X-shape, connecting the heel and forefoot, which is visible through the TPU outsole.
The range features a new insite sockliner for improved stability and balance by cupping the heel and promoting better posture. The whole range also comes with a minimum of one-year waterproof warranty.
Straight out of the box these are very eye-catching. They are clean and stylish, and when it comes to making great looking shoes, no one does it better than Adidas.
In terms of comfort, these are the best shoes Adidas have ever made and the popular ‘Boost’ technology really puts a spring in your step.
SRP: £140 (Tour 360 SL); £150 (Tour 360 SL BOA); £160 (Tour 360 XT)
