adidas Golf Announces Limited Edition Blue BOOST™ Models

CARLSBAD, CA – Normally, golfers should stay away from anything that’s blue on the golf course. adidas is now encouraging it. Today, adidas Golf announced a new limited edition blue BOOST™ colorway available Aug. 1 to give players another style option for the best cushioning in the game.

The blue BOOST colorway is the third installment of new colorways for adidas Golf, following the launch of black BOOST in March and silver BOOST in May. The new limited-edition colorway will be available in the popular TOUR360 Knit and Crossknit 2.0 models, both featuring a carbon colorway upper that offers a sleek and unique look to go along with the distinctive blue BOOST section of the shoe.

“We know how much golfers like to express themselves through their style on the course, so we continued to push those boundaries with what we could do with our BOOST technology,” said Masun Denison, global footwear director, adidas Golf. “This blue version is meant to give players some added confidence through a unique look, but still give them the endless energy return that BOOST provides, whether they lace them up to play in the club championship or for a casual round with their buddies at home.”

The BOOST technology, proprietary to adidas in partnership with BASF, provides cushioning in the form of highly elastic thermoplastic urethane (TPU) pellets that are then fused together with heat and molded into the midsole shape for each specific model. There are numerous benefits that BOOST offers, but incredible energy return, unmatched cushioning and comfort along with long-lasting durability are the key highlights that players everywhere enjoy. Playing the game and walking the course is now more comfortable than ever before.
