It is not long since Adidas Golf stood independently, but this pair from the brand lets the golfers know that the company cautiously studies what is needed by its athletes. Modern is what it is about, from its interior, down to its exterior. The Forgefiber BOA is a contemporary shoe that suits the modern-day needs of men and women.
X hits the spot. The bottom of the shoe shows an unconventional design, and each detail serves a purpose. The shoe sports a spikeless outsole. But, instead of the traditional deep lugs, it is shaped with X-traction and Puremotion, which is strategic in providing grip, balance, and flexibility. This technology is also visible on another golf shoe, the Adidas Tour 360 XT SL BOA.
Torsion X. In line with the theme of X’s, the outsole of the Forgefiber BOA is made with the Torsion X. It links the heel and forefoot to help the player feel more stable when making a shot.
Using nothing but the best, the trainer is equipped with the Boost. The cushioning system is probably one of the most popular technologies from the Three Stripes. Dubbed as the most responsive, it comes useful for different golf swing techniques.
Forgefiber technology. Like the bottom of the shoe, the exterior shows an equally exciting look. The intricate stitching seen on the upper is made of TPU-coated fibers that have been compressed and heated to improve stability and durability. Moreover, since no additional material is used on the shoe, it keeps its weight to the minimum.
Protected by Climastorm. Also seen on some Adidas apparel, Climastorm offers water-repellent protection to keep the foot comfortable and dry.
BOA Fit System. The trainer features the revolutionary TX4 BOA Fit System. Instead of traditional laces, the shoe features a knob, which is turned to achieve a micro-adjustable custom fit and an adaptive feel.
Uncaged equates to free. The build of the shoe is uncaged and is complemented by a stretchable textile upper which hugs the foot comfortably. It helps significantly in minimizing slippage no matter how hard the swing is.
When one is determined to perform their best, they might as well do it a la mode. The Forgefiber BOA, while it is offered for both sexes, gives an equally fashionable and modern appearance. Other than the classic low-top silhouette, the small details like the minimal branding, BOA closure, and detailed stitching on the side speak a lot in giving character to the shoe.
- The Forgefiber BOA for men costs $200 while the women’s version is $160.
- A one-year waterproofing warranty period is offered for the Forgefiber BOA.
