Review: Adidas Crossflex Golf Shoes
Starting at the ground, the Adidas Crossflex shoes have a very unique tread. There are 6 sided lugs with cross patterns in each one. They offer far superior traction to running shoes and are just about as grippy as any spiked shoe. The treads also extend slightly past the edges of the sole of the shoe, making them very stable side to side, they simply refuse to roll.
The middle layers of this shoe are soft and flexible, yet offer some support. There are a number of “barefoot” shoes out there that are very flexible, but for some golfers those are too flexible without enough support. These offer good cushion and support.
The upper are a waterproof mesh. I gave them a good test in the rain since they don’t look waterproof, but they are. No leakage or wet socks, the mesh is coated with a good waterproof sealant. The mesh is also soft and very comfortable. These shoes required no break-in time at all. Right out of the box I walked 18 holes without a discomfort, blister or even a slight rub.
The looks of these shoes I found to be very stylish. They are very similar in style to a running shoe, but the color combinations and shape looked nice with both pants and shorts. They may not be traditional in style but comfort rules the day with these.
If you are one of those golfers that needs a shoe more like your running shoes to play golf in, these are your shoes. ( I even gave them a try as running shoes and they did a pretty nice job at that too.) They are lightweight, flexible, supportive, comfortable right out of the box, and offer golf specific functions like traction and full waterproof. Since they are spikeless, they might just become even more than your golf shoes.
