What they say:
Part of the Boost line of performance golf shoes, the Adidas Adipower Boost’s main focus is innovative technological performance coupled with cushioned comfort. The special Boost foam is designed for a more trampoline effect than traditional EVA midsole foam. The outsole uses Puremotion Gripmore technology, which is essentially a hybrid of spiked and spikeless shoes.
*Boost midsole foam in heel – Boost foam is comprised of thousands of TPU energy capsules fused together that deliver energy return and responsiveness. In a sense, it has a more trampoline effect than traditional EVA midsole foam.
*Bounce foam in forefoot – Delivers more power at impact
*Fit sleeve tongue – More snug fit
*Puremotion outsole with Gripmore tread – Comprised of numerous lugs/nubs of varying sizes along non-replaceable spikes. Rubber traction at heel and toe.
*External heel counter – Wider heel outsole for increased stability
*Soft microfiber leather upper
*Fitfoam PU sockliner – Increases overall cushion and comfort

We can say for certain that cushioned comfort is a major reason why people are so happy with the shoe. With the price recently lowered, the Adipower Boost is fiercely competitive with other top performance golf shoes.
