Sole mate. A triad of technologies sports the bottom of the Adidas Crossknit Boost. Firstly, it boasts of a spikeless construction with Puremotion technology to mimic the natural movements of the golfer's foot. It also utilizes an Adiwear rubber to gain versatile grip, stability, and durability. Since stabilization is important for both walking and swinging, the Three Stripes integrates the Torsion System into the mix. It functions as a bridge that connects the forefoot and the heel. It emits a responsive feel while retaining the midfoot's natural integrity and avoid any form of strain.
The reputation of the Boost has been widely popular that it has become synonymous with the brand. Present on many silhouettes on sneakers and runners, it cannot be denied that the responsive function comes helpful on each golf movement. Built on full-length boost last to further comfort and responsiveness and hight durable.
Boost's boost. Taking the comfort level of this model to the roof, the Three Stripes injects it with a Cloudfoam EVA sockliner. It gives additional cushioning that adds cushioning and support to the foot.
The combination of the Boost midsole material with an engineered-knit upper creates a design that comfortably hugs your foot, making the Crossknit Boost feel more like a supportive sock than a golf shoe.
Fit for knit. A classic combination that partners the Boost is partnering it with CircleKnit. It is a unique material that draws in breathability on the interior. At the same time, its stretchable properties help provide a snug fit while providing targetted lateral stability.
Looking closely at the shoe, one can see that there are several reinforcements that are scattered on the different parts of the upper. In the form of internal Three Stripes coupled with external heel counter and TPU welded toe, these additions protect the foot and ensure a no-slip swing even for the most aggressive players.
Love or hate him, there is no doubt that Kanye West contributed much to the popularity of the Boost in fashion and not through a tech-standpoint. The Crossknit Boost carries the same visual look that, if not for its aggressive tread, can easily be mistaken as a runner or sneaker. For golf's point-of-view, the styling of this piece is far from what is typical and traditional. The knit upper and Boost midsole serve more than their purpose and act as visual representations of the modernization of the sport.
Being ideal for summer and warm climate, this shoe is best paired with casual pieces like shorts and collared shirts. More so, because of its spikeless nature, users can also style this with denim and joggers for everyday wear.
