Adidas Crossflex 2013 shoes

4 posts in this topic

I've always been a big advocate of Adidas footwear for golf and I'm currently wearing a pair of the Tour 360's. I bought them brand new 2 years ago and they're waterproof so it's been great because of all the rain we've been getting this spring. I'd like another pair of shoes that are a bit more breathable and not as heavy so I'm looking at getting the Crossflex 2013 shoes. Anyone wear these currently or have any input on them? http://www.golfshoesplus.com/c/271-category/mens-adidas-crossflex-golf-shoes.jpg

I have the puremotion, my brother has a pair of crossflex and swears by them.  He wore them right out of the box, walked 18 and had no issues.  He has a pretty narrow foot, they fit great, super comfortable and had no issues with his feet slipping on a swing or while walking.

Great shoe. I prefer the Adipure (I have a contact with Adidas that sends me free product when he gets it in my size, which is 15), which may not look it, but is very, very breathable.

That said, I use my Nikes most days because while they are less breathable, they are more comfortable while walking, and my addidas for one course I play that is Cart golf only. The fairways are so hard on that course, that i've had real problems with spike grip. The Adidas with Stinger hard plastic spikes work perfect there (yes I know, I could just put those on my Nikes as well, but why bother when I get the Adidas free?). I generally prefer a softer spike on my shoes.

Now that TM and adidas are one company, im hoping he can get me more TM shwag as well, he gave me the RBZ 3 and 5W already.

Before you guys call me a bum, this is a guy whom I gave a place to stay, for free, for 18 months while he was struggling in University to work to pay his tuition and books (I had a 3 bedroom condo my parents bought me as a first house when I went to University, so I had 2 extra rooms and way too much space for a 18-21 year old, so my only stipulation was that he do the mopping and vaccuuming, as well as his own laundry), so its ok for me to look for free shwag once in a while, imo :p

Thanks bud. I picked up a pair, haven't tried them out yet on the course but a few friends of mine have them and seem to love them. Light shoe, waterproof and comfy.

    • Pace Problem
      Do I think our GM and Pro would adopt what I am suggesting as a course policy? No.  
    • New shoes
      I am looking for a new pair pair of golf shoes.  Since I am a cheapskate trying to stay under $100. Any ideas I like to walk and need them to be waterproof. 
    • Pace Problem
      You (or your mangers) still don't seem to understand that catching another group and playing through them is slower for both groups (and for any groups following them) than if they are all simply required by policy to keep the pace.  The rules are just swell, but playing through should only be something that happens in cases with extenuating circumstances, not a regular habit.  The Rules of Golf were never intended to be used as an excuse for a chronic inability to keep pace with the course. When the course allows certain groups make a habit of playing so slowly that other groups overtake them and have to play through, then you have failed in establishing and maintaining an effective pace of play policy.  That policy is mired in a time warp from the era when courses were never full.  Those days no longer exist and different steps must be taken if a course is really serious about their pace of play.  It's apparent that your course is more concerned about the minority than they are about the majority.  I hope that doesn't eventually bite them in the behind.
    • Pace Problem
      Again, that's been our tactic for seven years, and has not generally worked.  There is not a suggestion made in this thread that we don't do or haven't tried tom speed slow groups up.  Some do, but mostly slow groups stay slow. As a rule of thumb, marshaling 18 holes takes about an hour.  If you attempt to "teach" the first time around, and then discover that you're a bad teacher or the slow group is a bad student when you come back around, by the time you "enforce", you have lost half a round of golf and you have forced faster groups to play the slower group's pace. When I see a group going to 9 at 2 1/2 hours, I tend to say, 'Oh, shit." to myself, because I know we've lost the Pace and it's next to impossible to get it back until that group has left the course.  Sadly, because of staffing cutbacks, that's often the case.  When I say something to the GM or Pro like, "If you want a good pace, you have to be out there from the beginning," it is not received well. If, OTOH, our policy is Pace has Priority on the Course, let faster groups play through, and that is what they hear when they pay, and from the Starter, and that's what the sign in the carts' signholder says, they have no leg to stand on the first time the marshal comes by and sees groups piled up behind a slow group. Yeah, I know, it's different than what everyone's used to. But if you always do what you've always done, you always get what you've always got.

      I am indeed, All down the west coast here in ayrshire there are some fantastic courses and I always feel blessed to have played most of them. I recently played round the kintyre course at Turnberry for the first time it was a real gem. Sadly the 70mph winds did nothing to help scoring leading to a morale sapping 120 score but a great track none the less. I spent my youth years playing in troon on the public owned courses. A student of the links!
