What do you wear for a 6-mile walk?

Have you ever stopped to consider how far it is we walk during an average round of golf?

The game can be so gripping from tee to green that our focus takes over, and a 15-minute hole can seemingly go by in the blink of an eye. The reality is, we end up walking around 6-miles when we play a standard 18 holes of golf.

It may sound like a long distance, but when you take into account the standard course yardage contributing to our step count, as well as navigating to the left and right of the fairway, doubling back on ourselves and looking for balls, and walking from one hole to the next, it can end up being a long time spent on our feet.

Another thing to consider is that in the runup to summer, the weather’s getting hotter, and the ground’s going to get firmer, and take more impact, making our feet feel heavier as we stroll along.

Activity in the hotter weather is also going to make us sweat more as we walk the golf course, so it’s important we’re equipped with clothing that will keep us feeling light and cool for the duration of the time we’re playing golf.

It’s simply a case of making sure that you’re best equipped for the activity you’re embarking on. If you were mountain hiking, you’d want your boots to protect your feet as you scale the difficult terrain. The same premise is applied to golf, you want shoes that are comfortable, grippy, and keep your spirits up as you play your round.

In the pro shop we stock all kinds of golf shoes, and the latest offerings from adidas are a real treat to wear throughout the warmer months. Today we’d like to walk you through what makes these shoes such a necessary part of your summer golf outfit.

 

adidas S2G SL Leather golf shoes

If you’re looking for a stellar golf shoe to get you around the golf course this summer, the S2G SL Leather from Adidas should definitely be on your list. This shoe looks as stylish as it feels good to wear.

This shoe features Adidas’ OrthoLite sockliner and Lightstrike midsole that sits under your feet to give you better stability and better regulate the temperature of your feet. The result being that your feet will always feel fresh and comfy with every step you take.

Besides offering you excellent comfort all day long, the shoe has a grippy outsole that will give you total traction with the ground when you’re standing over the ball. This spikeless outsole features small studs evenly positioned over the surface that give you a solid connection with the underfoot turf, whether your next shot is on grass, mud, or sand.

Another fantastic shoe offering from Adidas, the Solarmotion shoes are built for golf in the sunshine. The construction of the Solarmotion shoes also benefits from the OrthoLite sockliner to give you an ideal sense of climate regulation. There’s also a Lightstrike midsole to keep you feeling strong and bouncy on your feet.

The sole design features adidas’ Gripmore technology that ensures you’ll be totally grounded each time you address the ball. An artfully arranged pattern of triangular shapes that runs from the tow to the heel. Different coloured studs adorn the length of the outsole.
