The idea behind Adidas Golf‘s creation is to develop a golf shoe that harnesses the benefits of both spiked, and spikeless footwear â€“ striking a balance between comfort and performance.
The first of two models to feature gripmore technology is the adicross gripmore. These utilise 43 gripmore cleats, and have a total of 243 points of contact, ensuring a greater combination of versatility and performance.
â€œWith gripmore, itâ€™s the best of both styles.â€ – Justin Rose.
Justin Rose debuted the adicross gripmore at the WGC-Cadillac Championship in March, where he praised the shoeâ€™s crossover performance characteristics.
â€œIâ€™m always looking for footwear that provides traction without compromising comfort, style or on-course performance,â€ he said. â€œWith gripmore, I have the versatility of a spikeless shoe combined with the performance of a cleated shoe.Â Itâ€™s the best of both styles.â€
The second model to pioneer Adidas Golfâ€™s gripmore technology is the Pure 360 Gripmore Sport. These feature a waterproof mesh upper with climaproof, 360WRAP technology, and a powerband chassis for increased stability.
In addition, the 23 gripmore cleats and 161 contact points, offer golfers a pair of shoes that providse exceptional traction and protection, with the comfort and style of a spikeless shoe.
Available at retail on June 1, adicross gripmore will be available in: aluminum / running white / light scarlet, running white / running white / light scarlet and black/ running white / light scarlet colours, at an RRP of Â£99.99
While the pure 360 gripmore sport will be available in the colourways of: black / metallic silver / light scarlet and light onix / running white / light scarlet, at the same price.
