Adidas Gripmore Footwear Enhances Performance


Adidas is changing the landscape of golf footwear, and their headed in the right direction.  The key for success in good footwear is finding that perfect blend of comfort and grip.  They’ve hit a 300 yard bomb with the adicross gripmore and the gripmore sport shoes.  These shoes feature the proprietary gripmore technology, which delivers the performance of full-sized spikes in a revolutionary spikeless footwear design. The gripmore technology can be seen in what look like hundreds of microspikes for chart topping traction and stability. Not to mention, these may be the most green-friendly shoes ever designed by Adidas.


The Adicross gripmore has 43 gripmore cleats topping out at 243 points of contact.  This shoe bottom provides some of the greatest versatility and performance available. Justin Rose took to these shoes the first time he slipped them on at the 2013 WGC-Cadillac Championship.

“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,” said Rose.


The pure 360 gripmore sport touts a bit more of an athletic style and design.  Don’t let the sport design fool you; it’s packed with advanced material technology such as a climaproof 360 wrap and a powerband chassis for superior stability.  This shoe features 23 gripmore cleats and 161 points of contact. The combinations of all these great features have produced a golf shoe with protection, comfort and performance.
