adidas Golf is having some fun with their new adicross Bounce line of footwear. Today they unveiled the limited-edition "Niuhi" shoe that they say "symbolizes the shark-like desire these players possess to stand alone atop the leaderboard." The unique footwear, set for release Jan. 4 at 8 am PT on adidas.com for $140, will coincide with the Sentry Tournament of Champions (Plantation Course) in Kapalua, Maui, Hawaii.
The unique design is inspired by the Tiger Shark, or “niuhi” in Hawaiian. With a distinct grey colorway that includes subtle nods to the stripes of a Tiger Shark, the shoe also is highlighted by red accents on the heel and tongue to represent the pure strength, power and determination that both sharks and tour pros possess.
All versions of the adicross Bounce feature an offset wrapped saddle made of microfiber leather that includes multiple eyelet rows for customizable lacing. This feature gives players the opportunity to adjust the amount of support they need for their individual swing.
The shoe also includes a rubber non-marking spikeless outsole that features 181 strategically-placed lugs to provide golfers with optimal grip and green-friendliness, but also give them the option of wear-anywhere versatility.
The midsole of the adicross Bounce also touts full-length bounce foam, engineered specifically for golf, featuring dramatic grooves for enhanced cushioning, comfort and stability. The midsole for this limited edition takes on the shading of a shark’s underbelly, slowly fading from grey to white.
Look for non-limited edition versions of the adicross Bounce to hit their website on Jan. 1.
