Almost two decades after the first model, Adidas is back with a 2022 version of its best-selling golf shoe. Hannah Holden has everything you need to know

Can you believe it’s been 17 years since we first discovered the Adidas Tour 360 golf shoes? This year, they’re back with more technological advancements than ever before. So let’s dive right in…

Adidas Tour 360 22 Golf Shoes: First Impressions

These pack a punch right out of the box. Personally I love the styling, it’s a traditional Tour 360 with a twist. The bright colors stand out and the overall design is really athletic and strong.

Adidas Tour 360 22 Golf Shoes: Technology

When it comes to the performance of this shoe, Adidas wanted to focus on two key areas: fit and traction.

The shape of the shoe is designed around a “Feet You Wear” shape. The design mimics the natural shape of the foot to give you a more natural fit while improving stability, traction and comfort.

There is an awful lot of weight transfer and lateral movement in the golf swing. Using the latter helps golfers achieve a better connection to the ground to facilitate the generation of power in the swing.

In combination with the last there is also an inner sock liner. This follows the contours of the foot, especially around the heel, to provide cushioning, comfort and support. To improve the fit on top of the foot, a Geofit collar pad provides a more personal fit.

Comfort is also of paramount importance. Adidas has combined Boost cushioning and an EVA stability frame to deliver full-length comfort. Boost is a foam-like material with a series of thermoplastics encasing round air pockets. This one is flexible enough to have some flexibility when you walk, give you energy return but also maintain its overall shape.

The Stability Frame is a horseshoe-shaped piece that wraps around the boost on the perimeter of the forefoot to increase stability.

Adidas undertook a series of touring tests to obtain this shoe, including examining the pressure marks of some of the best players in the world. This led to the new Spikemore stud design.

This implies that the studs are directly injected directly onto the TPU base. This allows for pin locations to be more precise as well as the shaping of each cleat arm. The individual studs also have a central cone which improves overall grip.

These new spikes are larger than previous designs, which helps disperse weight and promote greater eco-friendliness.

Both men’s and women’s lines feature BOA offerings to further optimize fit. The PerformFit Wrap System features two overlapping panels that lower over the top of the instep. This locks the foot in place and the BOA fit system provides a custom fit.

“The Tour 360 is synonymous with cutting-edge technology and premium materials, and we’ve stayed true to that throughout the design process for this new model. Golfers will instantly notice a more natural fit that provides improved stability, better traction and incredible comfort.I’ve been involved in the creation of every Tour 360 model, so I can confidently say this is our most capable model we’ve ever featured.

Adidas Tour 360 22 Golf Shoes: NCG Verdict

I can’t tell you how long I waited to get my hands on a pair of spiked women’s Tour 360s. In fact, as a junior, I used to buy the men’s version because I liked the stability and support.

The technology has reached another level since then and I can finally get this in a female form that suits me properly.

And the fit is so good. From every angle it hugs the shape of my foot, when I walk the shoe just follows the natural motion of my foot.

Haven’t dared take them to the golf course yet, they’re too white and UK winter mud won’t spoil these beauties, so for now you’ll have to get a feel for my trips to the driving range . But even off the mat, the traction delighted me. The grippy sole is slightly wider than the width of your foot and provides a really stable base. The spikes also really do their job and I really like the addition of the spike under the arch for a bit more traction.

I’m seriously impressed with the performance so far, I’ll be back with a longer term update when these have been more on the course.
