adidas unveils new Tour360 shoe

4.06pm 25th January 2022 - New Products

adidas Golf has launched the next generation of the Tour360 shoe which was first introduced to the golf market 17 years ago.

The 2022 model focus on two key areas – fit and traction. From the ground up, it features a Feet You Wear last, serving as the foundation for a new TOUR360 FIT, while a new direct-injected SPIKEMORE traction system will help golfers stay locked-in and increase confidence with every swing.

The upper features premium rich leather (one-year waterproof warranty), microfibre and textiles that incorporate recycled materials.

“The TOUR360 is synonymous with pinnacle technology and premium materials, and we remained true to that throughout the design process of this new model,” said Masun Denison, global footwear director, adidas Golf. “Golfers will instantly notice a more natural fit that offers better stability, better traction and amazing comfort. I’ve been a part of the creation of every model of the TOUR360, so I can confidently say that this is our best-performing model we have ever introduced.

“With so much lateral movement and weight transfer in the golf swing, we were intrigued with the use-cases that our brand’s Feet You Wear last had to offer. We first introduced Feet You Wear in 1996. The design mimics the natural shape of the foot, ultimately helping to create a better connection with the ground and accommodate the natural movements of the foot in all directions. Knowing how important the ground is in the golf swing, an added benefit of using the Feet You Wear last helps golfers utilize this connection with the ground to generate power more easily in the swing. The design truly hugs and cradles the natural contours of the foot to optimize performance.”

Features & Benefits

Talking about the new Tour360 shoe, PGA Tour star Xander Schauffele said: “I got to see first-hand how much detail went into bringing this shoe to life and that was a really unique learning experience. Footwear is so important in the golf swing, but it can also help boost confidence. After spending quite a bit of time testing the TOUR360 22, I know golfers will feel a higher level of stability, traction and comfort, which are things we all need from our footwear out on the course so that we can perform our best.” 

Dustin Johnson added: “I’ve worn almost every model of TOUR360 since I started my career and I’m always amazed at how the footwear team continues to raise the bar year after year. I really like the design and style with this new model, but the traction, feel and comfort I get definitely make this the best version of the TOUR360 that I’ve ever worn.”
