In the past, it was assumed that golf shoes needed to look a certain way. adidas is continuing to challenge that mindset with its latest unveiling, REBELCROSS. It’s yet another silhouette the company is adding to our adicross range that’s meant to capture the cross-section between streetwear style and a pin-seeker attitude.
REBELCROSS is a sleek and progressive design that subtly gives golfers the performance they would expect from a golf shoe. Built on the comfortable YEEZY last, the rubber spikeless outsole features GRIPMORE in the forefoot so golfers get a great combination of wear anywhere versatility and high-level performance.
“Like anyone else when it comes to style, golfers want to have the chance to express themselves, and one of the ways they can do that is through their footwear,” says Masun Denison, global footwear director, adidas Golf.
“With REBELCROSS, golfers will get elevated style and functionality that they’ll be impressed with not only when they put them on, but when they perform on the course.”
While style and versatility were a focus for the design concept, performance was still essential. The company got creative by taking some inspiration from the ZG21 model in its range and created a midsole that features LIGHTSTRIKE and BOOST cushioning. Adidas has found this combination to offer an amazing lightweight feel with comfort that golfers expect over the course of the round – or wherever the shoes take them after that last putt or swing. There’s also a subtle addition of a TPU heel clip that provides great stability when golfers need it over the course of their rounds.
adidas is also proud to offer a waterproof (one-year warranty) upper that combines rich, premium leather with recycled materials. The company is continuing to prove that versatile performance is possible.
REBELCROSS will be available beginning February 14 at adidas.com, the adidas app and at select retailers worldwide at an RRP of €180 in three colour options.
