adidas Golf today unveiled what it called the “first fully asymmetrical’’ golf shoe – asym energy boost, the most innovative footwear from the brand to date.
The uniquely built left and right shoes, according to the company, guide weight transfer, stability and power through the swing. asym energy boost is the latest in footwear from adidas Golf that highlights the Boost cushioning and incorporates advanced technologies to best support the athlete and their performance.
Utilizing the latest biomechanical equipment, adidas Golf said it was better able to analyze footwear during the golf swing and more importantly how footwork impacts the game. Through extensive heat map and force plate pressure studies, the company said it became clear just how different and unique the vertical and horizontal forces were for each foot during the swing. adidas Golf said It also became clear there were “potentially huge advantages’’ in harnessing these differences and having design and performance characteristics dedicated to both the front and back foot.
Offered in both left and right handed versions, adidas Golf said the asym energy boost strategically placed tour-proven ‘gripmore’’ spikes on the outsole in a variety of sizes to provide improved stability, grip, and performance during all phases of the swing. The footwear also features full-length Boost midsole foam for unrivaled cushioning and endless energy, an asymmetric upper and outsole designed to harness swing power and improve footwork and an energy sling to guide energy transfer and prevent power leaks during the swing.
Available April 1, men’s asym energy boost will be offered in two colorways and carry a suggested retail price of $300 per pair.
