Today, we are going to review the NEW 2017 Adidas Men’s Climacool ST Spikeless Golf Shoes
The shoe is a protective lightweight trainer, best suited for daily rounds. There’s a fair amount of midsole to it although a very flexible one. Deep flex grooves on the bottom of the shoe provide maximum front-to-back flexibility, which allows your foot to move naturally. Unlike a lot of other lightweight shoes, however, this shoe offers a surprising amount of protection underfoot.
True to its name, the ClimaCool is extremely well ventilated. It’s minimal and extremely unintrusive upper allows your foot to do what it wants to do while optimizing airflow and keeping your feet cool when the weather gets warm. I was impressed with how much less moisture my socks, and the shoes, retained. Also, at no point did my feet feel like they were heating up, a common issue when pounding the pavement around noon time on a warm day in Panchkula.
While this is a great new golfing shoe, with surprisingly tremendous versatility, it’s not for everyone. If you simply want to experiment with a more flexible, lightweight shoe for your daily rounds this summer, then I suggest taking this shoe for a Ride.
Toebox: Generous. I have fairly fat feet (thanks to a larger-than-life bunions) and I have plenty of toe clearance, as well as side to side room, in these shoes.
Midfoot: Average. Neither tight nor overly loose, the upper wraps my foot well while providing a secure fit.
Heel: Secure. For an overall flexible shoe the ClimaCool Ride had a rigid heel counter (i.e. not easily collapsable) that held my foot well in the shoe.
Perceived Weight: Light. this shoe felt fairly light on my feet. While it looks like more bulkier than others in its category, there’s nothing bulky about it.
Transition: Smooth. No clunk or awkward transition here. The deep flex grooves throughout the shoe allow for a smooth transition, whether you’re a slight heel striker or mostly up on your midfoot or forefoot.
Responsiveness: Firm, but forgiving. This shoe definitely isn’t plush, but it’s fast enough for a tempo run and there’s also enough cushioning underfoot that I felt protected when running at a slower pace.
