Good to know
The Adidas Tech Response is a golf shoe that is packed with style and tech. The Thintech EXP cleats complemented by Traxion tech provide reliable traction without compromising ground feel, stability, and durability.
Working in tandem with the spikes is the mesh and synthetic upper. Using both materials gets the best of both worlds as it infuses breathability while facilitating structure.
Last for years. Seated at the bottom of the Tech Response is the Adiwear rubber traction. Those familiar with the brand would know that this durable and non-marking outsole innovation originally started in tennis footwear. While this comes perfect for high-abrasion areas, it is also useful in long-distance walking on golf courses.
Spiked by spikes. Each movement in golf entails an excellent ground grip. Adidas addresses that and generously applies 6 Thintech EXP cleats. In effect, traction, durability, stability, and traction are all improved without damaging the greens.
Supplemented by Traxion. Working in complementary with the cleats are secondary lugs called Traxion. The shape of each lug is tapered to give maximum ground anchor while minimizing the pressure points on foot.
Comforted by EVA. Squeezed in the middle of the upper and outsole is a soft EVA foam. It cushions the foot and increases comfort.
Mix and match. The men’s and women’s versions of the Adidas Tech Response have minor differences, mainly on how materials are used. The gentlemen can enjoy mesh and leather, both of which are positioned strategically. The breathable upper is almost on the entire shoe-sidewalls, toe part, and tongue. The synthetic leather gives structure to the shoe and facilitates durability.
The ladies’ model utilizes microfiber leather on the toe and heel area while the sides have used textiles to incorporate air on the interior.
Fit. The combination of upper materials delivers a snug fit that wraps the foot comfortably. The strategic placement of synthetic leather gives a similar design to the traditional saddle. A traditional lace-up serves as its closure to lock the foot into place.
Despite using different upper materials for the men’s and women’s models, the look of both is quite similar. Using a mix of synthetic and leather creates an interesting look by incorporating varied textures. The Three Stripes on the sides draws attention as it uses a contrasting color.
