What we say:

 

Seeing as how the TOUR360 boost is our favorite Adidas golf shoe, we had high hopes for the Adidas TOUR360 primeknit boost. With the same technology as the TOUR360 boost, the primeknit boost doesn't disappoint. It sacrifices waterproofing for breathability, but still maintains enough lower half waterproofing to keep your feet dry in moist conditions. The price tag is a bit high, even for a shoe of this caliber. Definitely recommended for low handicap golfers looking for breathability and excellent performance.
