Shoes from the Future

Posted

Pros: look, comfort,

Cons: concern about spike replacement

Have you ever wondered what playing golf in the future would be like? Do you look forward to hovering golf carts? How about a seven-ball putter? Some things are closer in the golf future than those though. Have you ever checked out realistic futuristic shoes in movies? No, they don’t tie themselves, but they are silver, and they do fit your feet nicely, closer than the half-sizes for the off-the-shelf sizes. The new Adidas Adipower Boost golf shoes fit this nicely.

Pros: integrates well ; good selection ; looks nice at address ; feel is appropriate ; priced nicely

Cons: Adams doesn't have a particularly strong fitting program. However, most shops can fit you for these.

  While I don't actually own a set, I still love the Adams A7.  At address, they look like better players' clubs (at least from 6I on down).  They feel pretty good at impact.  They give feedback on bad shots without being harsh.  The distance gaps are consistent in the set for just about everyone I know that uses them -- and that says something about the quality control, too.   And you can get any number of wedges with it (although I always suggest a standard SW), and their wedges have a good amount of bounce.  And the lofts of most clubs aren't crazily out of control.   I suggest the Adams A7 set to just about everyone who isn't in the...
