What we say:

 

The adidas Adipower 4orged Sport is very similar to the original Adipower 4orged, except that it is spikeless and has slightly less support. However, it makes up for this with just slightly more breathability. Its unique design coupled with solid technology makes it one of the brand's better spikeless golf shoes. What we like most about the Adipower 4orged Sport is its comfort and awesome spikeless traction. It also boasts a pretty good combo of breathability and waterproofing, which means it's a solid, year-round golf shoe. The Adipower 4orged Sport is not only comfortable, but it's also really lightweight, which makes it pretty great for walking the course. In a nutshell, it's a hybrid of sport and performance styles. We recommend the Adipower 4orged Sport for mid-level golfers who need durability and solid performance. The only minor issue we have is that it perhaps scacrificed a bit of support in a bid to make it really lightweight. However, it still has more than enough support for most.
