adidas Golf has launched two all-new footwear models with proprietary gripmore technology, an innovation in golf footwear cleat design that combines the performance benefits of spiked and spikeless footwear into one revolutionary technology.
Unlike traditional spiked golf shoes that require receptacles to house cleats on the sole, gripmore cleats are directly injected onto lightweight mesh matting inclusive of hundreds of microspikes for even more traction and stability. In addition to the grip, both models are among the most green-friendly the company has ever created.
The adicross gripmore (£99), worn by Justin Rose and Player champion Martin Kaymer, utilises 43 gripmore cleats and a total of 243 points of contact for the ultimate combination of versatility and performance.
2013 U.S. Open Champion and adidas Golf Tour staff professional Justin Rose debuted the adicross gripmore at the WGC-Cadillac Championship in March, where he praised the shoe’s crossover performance characteristics. “I’m always looking for footwear that provides traction without compromising comfort, style or on-course performance,” he said. “With gripmore, I have the versatility of a spikeless shoe combined with the performance of a cleated shoe. It’s the best of both styles.”
With a more athletically-inspired design, the pure 360 gripmore sport (£99) features a waterproof mesh upper with climaproof, 360WRAP technology and a powerband chassis for increased stability. Featuring 23 gripmore cleats and a total of 161 contact points, the shoe provides exceptional traction with the combination of comfort, protection and performance.
