We first saw them in 2005 but now they feature Boost technology...
Adidas Golf are celebrating 10 years of the Tour360 franchise with the release of the new Tour360 Boost.
The new shoes incorporate the latest footwear technologies including Boost cushioning and a dual-density 10-cleat TPU outsole.
Named after its iconic 360 wrap – a midfoot support system that entirely surrounds the foot for exceptional stability – Tour360 footwear has recorded 38 PGA TOUR victories and since its inception has sold millions of pairs of various models from the franchise around the world.
“Tour360 broke ground when it hit the market in 2005,” said Masun Denison, Director of Footwear at adidas Golf.
“Our challenge in creating the next generation was living up to the Tour360 name.
“We took everything we’ve learned in the last 10 years including visual cues from prior models while utilising materials and construction innovation to take the Tour360 BOOST to the next level.
“It’s a culmination of years of technology, testing, insights and athlete feedback.”
The latest iteration features a lighter and more flexible 360 wrap saddle to allow for greater adjustability and adaptability.
An advanced dual-density 10-cleat outsole features a harder perimeter TPU to house strategically-placed cleats and enhance lateral stability;
The new heel shape inspired by adidas training and running categories, features an s-curve which follows and adapts to the natural contour of the foot for improved fit
The upper is made of premium leather for a rich look, a soft and comfortable feel, and lasting protection and durability.
“I’ve always been a fan of the Tour360 footwear,” said Dustin Johnson, Adidas Golf ambassador.
“I have great memories wearing them during key wins throughout my career, and I can’t wait to get them back on my feet and wear the Tour360 BOOST next season.”
Tour360 Boost will also be available with a BOA closure system on the top of the tongue.
