VIDEO: D. Johnson tests adidas golf's grimpmore technology

Friday, June 6, 2014

Gripmore technology is an innovation in golf footwear cleat design, combining the performance benefits of spiked and spikeless footwear into one product. The new line and innovation video series by adidasGolf utilizes this new feature.

The technology begins with 43 individual cleats, thus including more than 200 touch points with the ground. These points increase traction throughout the golfer’s swing.

The outsole features an internal polyurethane midsole to enhance cushion and comfort. The overall shoe is lighter and more flexible than the traditional golf shoe, but it still gives the golfer the necessary stability.

Eight-time PGA Tour winner Dustin Johnson said the gripmore “gives you confidence because you feel like the shoe has got a lot of stability.” For him, “stability is very important.”

Without the traditional outsole cleats, golfers are able to wear this shoe on or off the course. readers: We value your input and welcome your comments, but please be respectful in this forum.
