adidas Introduces New ZG21 Golf Footwear
adidas Golf has completed two years of work, going through multiple prototypes and configurations, with the result being a blend of the latest technologies through the new, lightweight, high-performance ZG21 footwear.
ZG21 is the brand's lightest spiked footwear model to feature BOOST cushioning. It’s up to 20 percent lighter than comparable spiked models previously in the adidas range. But just being lightweight wasn’t enough.
“ZG21 is truly a breakthrough feat in spiked performance,” said Masun Denison, global footwear director, adidas Golf. “We were able to combine the latest and greatest materials, innovations, and manufacturing processes without sacrificing anything. It changes the game for those who love spiked footwear.”
Beyond the clean, fast and sleek design, ZG21 is packed with new technology:
A first in golf, this cushioning is 40 percent lighter than any EVA foam in the market while also providing shock absorption and quick recovery, perfect for golf where stability through the swing is critical. It’s been used in other categories like basketball and tennis, and when coupled with our BOOST cushioning, gives players lightweight comfort and stability with every swing and step.
A lightweight and waterproof (one-year warranty) four-layer upper that combines innovative textiles and polyurethane films for breakthrough performance.
ULTRA-LIGHT STABILITY FIN
A new lightweight and durable TPU insert that adidas created in the lateral sidewall that offers increased lateral stability and a locked-in feel throughout the swing.
Inspired by heat-map studies and running from heel to toe, adidas has targeted the areas and place the maximum amount of traction where it’s needed most.
The new ZG21 outsole features an ultra-thin TPU construction, six strategically placed cleats, and a new crescent moon-shaped secondary lug to optimise grip, support and performance while ultimately reducing weight.
ZG21 will come in four models: men’s laced, men’s and women’s BOA, and a simplified laced offering for junior golfers. The two BOA models feature the new BOA Fit System, a ‘Y’-strap design that’s a first in the sport and provides an even higher level of performance. The configuration wraps around the foot, creating a secure fit over the instep and provides flexibility and freedom in the toe box. The men’s ZG21 BOA is also the first golf shoe on the market to feature Li2 – a sleek, low-profile dial platform that modulates tension when and where needed with enhanced speed and effortless execution.
