Adidas ZG21: A wonderful blend of support and cushioning

The majority of golfers are mind-blown with the Adidas ZG21's in-step ease. An expert loves how it provides "a wonderful blend of support and cushioning" while walking and swinging.

Adidas ZG21 midsole

Efficiency and energy conservation are provided by the pair's springy cushioning. This is thanks to its Boost-equipped midsole.

Aside from being responsive, this offers supportive comfort. This shoe uses a hybrid Lightstrike and Boost midsole design that works well for walking and powerful swings.

While the midsole part is well-cushioned, the heel part lacks cushioning, which results in some heel issues like heel rubbing.

This is the brand's lightest spiked shoe

Adidas was able to release the lightest spikeless shoe, the CodeChaos, without compromising performance and now the brand wanted to release the lightest spiked golf shoe

With the ZG21, Adidas achieved weight reduction in every shoe aspect by using advanced materials such as Boost and Lightstrike cushioning.

The Adidas ZG21 is lauded for being 24% lighter than its Tour 360 XT predecessor. The ZG21 weighs 13 oz (368 g), while the 360 XT is 17 oz (485 g).

Do not be afraid of slippery courses

Well-spaced spikes and supportive cushioning work together in offering excellent sure-footedness while swinging and walking on slippery courses.

The Adidas ZG21 isn't hardwearing

A couple of reviewers griped about the durability of the Adidas ZG21. Either the lining of the heel wears out after no more than a dozen uses, or the heel rips after 20 rounds of golf.
