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.

 

Technology:

 

*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

 

*Wider forefoot

What we say:

 

For those of you looking for a top performance shoe, the Adidas Adipower Boost could be the one. It boasts innovative technology in just about every part of the shoe. How much this technology directly benefits the golfer and how much of it is just fancy words is subjective.

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.
