Now on the Tee: Limited-Edition adidas ZX 8000 golf shoes

Must read

ANA Inspiration, The Blue Wall, and a lesson for the PGA Tour

There’s nothing worse than burying your head in the sand and pretending everything is rosy, but it's a tactic that the PGA Tour has been deploying unapologetically for years

High science or a load of balls?

To find the ultimate ball for you, a ‘fitting’ under PGA Pro/Trackman supervision is wise. After all, if there's advantage to be had, why not take it?

One Major title or 18 – they’re all special to those on golf’s glory list 

The US PGA was a welcome return to the big time despite the lack of spectators. Let's hope the US Open can deliver the goods too

Get Shorty*

The 9-Hole Course is back in the limelight, and none more so in Ireland than Cruit Island, Mulranny, Castlegregory and Bushfoot

Adidas Golf is going back to the archives, this time by giving golfers some added confidence on their feet through another iconic adidas silhouette announcing the availability of the first-ever ZX model built for golf – the limited-edition ZX 8000 Golf.

The adidas Originals’ ZX series, first released in 1984, was born from the idea that runners need a variety of footwear options depending on the type of run, surface or training they were looking to accomplish.

Taking all those intentions to heart, adidas Golf adapted this mentality to create the ZX 8000 Golf by packing in everything a golfer would need to not only look stylish, but also give them the traction and performance they need throughout the round. The silhouette also takes design cues and colour inspiration from the original ZX 8000 running shoe first released in 1989.

Many of the innovations and characteristics that set the ZX apart more than 35 years ago, which adidas continued to build upon over time, can be found in this limited-edition model made for golf: the patented Torsion System for added stability, responsive Boost midsole, and the unmistakable vibrant colourways (clear aqua/shock yellow with pops of purple) that certainly provide added flare to any wardrobe. adidas also used water resistant materials in the upper to help offer some protection from the elements should players need it.

The spikeless outsole is built upon the original grip pattern by adding longer, golf-specific secondary lugs, and a more aggressive tread pattern to ensure grip and stability in every swing along with comfort in every step.

adidas didn’t overlook adding little details to make this a unique ZX model for golf. The footwear features a lace jewel with the words “ZX GOLF” at the bottom of the eyestay, a leather toecap, and a unique adidas Golf logo added to the heel and sockliner.

“As the original sports brand, we are in a unique position to draw on our extensive archives for inspiration,” said Masun Denison, global footwear director, adidas Golf. “The ZX was always meant to challenge the way people thought about running performance and we wanted to do the same with golf footwear by pushing the limits with technology and fashion. Offering the ZX 8000 Golf is just another example of how we combine sports heritage, performance and lifestyle to ultimately push golf fashion in a more progressive way.”

The limited-edition ZX 8000 Golf (€120) are available via adidas.com, the adidas app and at select retailers now.
