Adidas golf shoes review: Forgefiber
Just when I thought the Tour 360 was the best-looking golf shoe I’d ever seen, a pair of the Adidas Forgefiber land at NCG Towers.
Forgefiber is a technology utilising TPU-coated yarn, it helps improve stability in strategically targeted areas of the upper, when stitched at various angles and in layers.
Beyond just the distinctive stitching process, the TPU yarns are also compressed and heated, this melts the yarns into the textile upper of the shoe creating more natural support. It also keeps the shoe light by reducing the amount of materials needed. The stitching pattern produces a unique aesthetic and texture across the upper of the shoe.
The Forgefiber BOA has a spikeless outsole made up of the X-Traxion system that we also see in the Tour 360 XT SL. The shoe also features full-length boost and a insite sockliner that offers comfort and added stability. The heel and forefoot are connected through the Torsion X stability bar so that players can have that locked-in feel for every shot.
The new footwear also incorporates the TX4 Boa Fit System that features a soft, textile lace, which goes perfectly with the textile upper. The FormTX lace guides are designed to be softer and more comfortable.
These shoes are really eye-catching and have a great sporty style. I love the contrasting colours used on these shoes to make them really stand out. The blue detailing around the base of the shoe in the stitching is a really nice extra detail which gives stand out factor.
The Forgefiber technology combined with the BOA closure system provides an exceptionally fit which made me feel really stable when hitting shots. This is a really comfortable shoe that provides great support for the foot no matter what terrain you find yourself on.
