Best Adidas Golf Shoes: Quick Menu

When you first think about the sports company adidas, your mind may not immediately go to golf but this should absolutely not be the case! Granted the German sports brand produce some of the best high-performance apparel for some of the world's best athletes, but they make some pretty epic golf gear too! In fact they produce some of the best golf shoes on the market, for some of the world's top golfers. adidas shoes more than stack up against other popular brands like FootJoy or Ecco, two companies that are often seen out on Tour and in the amateur game. adidas are also actively looking to reduce its carbon footprint and you'll find many of its products including some of the best adidas golf shirts, adidas golf pants and shoes are made from sustainable materials.  

Another great thing about some of the shoes on this list is that they all ooze bags of style. As with the majority of adidas' products, the brand uses the best and highest quality materials to create some really premium offerings. More recently adidas are implementing new cushioning technology into their golf shoes, known as their Lightstrike technology. Akin to their much-loved Boost cushioning, Lightstrike is set to change up the midsole game on some of the shoes they'll be releasing in the coming years, adding more comfort and support to your feet. 

There are plenty of sporty designs on the market that will catch the eyes of many different golfers. But alternatively, there are many more understated designs on offer here and there is unquestionably a shoe for everyone. Bearing that in mind in this guide we have tested a lot of adidas golf shoes and collated our favorites below. If adidas is not for you, we have also created guides on other brands, too. For example we have scoured the current golf shoe market to create buyers advice on the best FootJoy golf shoesbest Nike golf shoes and also the best Under Armour golf shoes.

An awesome, stable design that looks fantastic

Soft, premium leather upper

Leather upper needs careful looking after

In our view there are only two golf shoe franchises worth talking about as true icons. The FootJoy Pro/SL - which has seen a 2024 update in the form of the new Pro/SLX - and the adidas Tour360. The flagship performance golf shoe from adidas is approaching its 20th anniversary, which is a quite remarkable show of longevity. Our expectation is high whenever adidas revamp this iconic shoe and the 2024 offering didn't disappoint.

The 2024 edition has benefitted from a complete redesign from the inside out, introducing new technology into the familiar, well loved silhouette. Despite the pleasingly familiar looks, a lot has actually changed from the excellent Tour360 22. The spikes were moulded into the outsole to offer more grip, but they weren't replaceable and the materials used in the heel area also needed some tweaking. 

That has been addressed and this shoe is definitely one of the best spiked golf shoes in its class this year. The new 'T-Shape' suede microfiber heel is a three-piece construction combining a soft, anti abrasive sandwiched textile, running from the inside heel to the top of the collar. It is significantly softer than the previous shoe and in testing we could immediately feel the difference. It offers improved comfort and also adds to the durability. 

Additionally, the insole has been reshaped and we could instantly feel more arch and heel support which added to the levels on comfort when combined with the rest of the shoe, making this one of the most comfortable shoes we've tested.

Not the most premium-looking shoe

Perhaps one of the most comfortable golf shoes in the game right now, the ZG23 is an update on the very impressive ZG21 golf shoe which was easily one of the best spiked golf shoes around when it launched back in 2021. Firstly, we enjoyed the sporty profile of the shoe which features slight alterations from the ZG21. Chief among which is the new Lightstrike technology that has been embedded into its midsole. This replaces the familiar BOOST cushioning found in some of the other excellent shoes on this list and takes big steps (pardon the pun) to improve on the comfort and feel under foot. 

This combines nicely with a very soft upper that is also waterproof and easy to wipe clean. If you struggle with heel support, the ZG23 also comes with a new Stability Fin that delivers greater support to the heel and kept us feeling locked-into the shoe throughout every swing. During our testing sessions, we really enjoyed the feeling the stability fin delivered, particularly in wet and uneven terrains. We also really enjoyed how light they were, with the shoe weighing pretty much nothing.

One thing that we really liked about this golf shoe was the grip on offer. The six-cleat D-Traxion outsole gave us plenty of grip and stability on the golf course, both on firm and softer surfaces. Ultimately, if you're looking for a very sturdy golf shoe that will deliver bags of comfort, then this is an excellent option to consider.

Adidas Tech Response 2.0 Golf Shoes

A grippy and value option that delivers great performance

Specifications

Sizes: 7-15
Colors: 3 (Black; Grey; White)

Reasons to buy

+
Excellent value for money
+
Low profile outsole is comfortable and efficient on all ground types
+
Super lightweight

Reasons to avoid

-
Simple looks
-
Synthetic upper not as breathable as some

The Tech Response 2.0 has an intriguing mixture of materials used on the upper that allow the shoe to remain comfortable and very lightweight. There is some textile mesh on the direct upper of the shoe mixed with synthetic leather that then makes up the bulk of the shoe. Being so lightweight means there is little foot fatigue to be had at the end of walking 18 holes and the Cloudfoam sockliner and midsole provide plenty of medial support and cushioning underfoot. The impressive outsole uses a mixture of standard soft spikes and some additional plastic lugs for extra grip. 

Looks-wise, the Tech Response 2.0 strikes a fairly standard silhouette that is a bit boxy and clumpy for my liking. It's only available in three colors too (black, white or grey) and we would've liked to see a few more funky color options available. That being said, if you're not wanting to splash out too much cash on your next pair of golf shoes, then these are a fantastic option to consider as they are up there as some of the best budget golf shoes on the market.

Not as breathable as some

For 2024, adidas has introduced another shoe into its crossover category, aiming to offer golfers a shoe that can be worn from dawn until dusk, on and off the golf course. The new S2G SL (there is also a spiked version available) is based off a running shoe design, which is what gives it its modern, sporty silhouette.  

Aesthetically, we were big fans of the S2G SL, with it combining styles of previous adidas running shoes. As mentioned, it is designed to be worn on and off the course and, from our testing, we can comfortably say it strikes the correct notes in that section. What's more, it's available in multiple colorways, so there should be a look and taste for everyone.

Comfort-wise, it's a much wider fit than other adidas golf shoes, so it does indeed fit true to size. Also, adidas have used their Lightstrike technology through the midsole, something which we see in the spiked models above. The final point we must make is the cost, at under £90 RRP, it easily falls into the best budget golf shoes category.

No major performance difference over previous model

These are by far one of the most eye-catching golf shoes on this list and have been released with an all-new look. The Codechaos 2020 model was a hot favorite among our writers but adidas released an even more sporty design thanks to the wraparound outsole that adds a unique look as well as bags of stability. Taking these shoes for a spin around the course, we loved the comfort the shoes offered and the visuals were also a big winner. They provide a bold alternative to many traditional designs that you might find on the golf course at the moment. So if you're looking to make a statement, with a versatile and sporty golf shoe then these might be the ones for you! 

Let's talk comfort now and we really enjoyed the spring the sole delivered as we paced around the golf course but the highlight was how light they were. In fact we would go as far to say these are one of the best golf shoes for walking. It features adidas' Boost technology throughout the entire shoe - a technology we have become familiar with in the similarly excellent adidas Tour 360 and adidas Rebelcross golf shoes. As advertised by the brand, the Boost midsole gives instant comfort and the Codechaos 22 shoes took no time at all to break in.

Adidas Ultraboost Golf Shoe

Specifications

Sizes: 3.5 - 14.5
Colors: 6 (Black, Navy, Aluminium/Yellow, Lemon, Silver, Grey)

Reasons to buy

+
Very comfortable midsole

Breathable

Reasons to avoid

Not fully waterproof
-
Not as stable as some spikeless golf shoes

Aesthetically, we instantly noticed an identical likeness to the Ultraboost running shoe, which is something that will no doubt go down well with admirers of the original sneakers. The materials are very similar too. It uses a Primeknit mesh upper - which is breathable and water resistant - as well as the sock-like material around the tongue of the shoe. There is plenty of padding around the ankle and there have also been some reinforcements around the toe area. The comfort from the Ultraboost is off the charts. Anyone who has worn the running sneakers will appreciate the softness and cushioning underfoot, and that has translated to this golf shoe. 

Although not fully waterproof, it is water resistant, the Ultraboost has incredible breathability, with the mesh upper giving a supreme sense of comfort when we tested out on the course. What's more, we especially liked how the Ultraboost is not pretending to be something it's not. It’s not a shoe to play your 36-hole club championships in, but it is perfect for a casual round.  With a silhouette so similar to that of the sneaker, they blend into pretty much any environment. We’ve worn them to work, to the gym and then straight to the golf course. Alongside the Cole Haan ZeroGrand OvertakeTrue Linkswear FS-01 and Air Jordan 1 Low G, they are the most versatile golf shoes we’ve ever worn. 

Adidas MC80 Spikeless Golf Shoes

Modern classic looks, meets incredible comfort and stability

Specifications

Sizes: 3.5 - 14.5
Colors: 4 (Black, White/Lemon, Off White/Navy, White/Black)

Reasons to buy

+
Modern classic looks offer incredible shelf appeal
+
Technology in sole provides immense comfort and grip
+
Rich leather upper is easy to maintain

Reasons to avoid

-
Heel does take one or two rounds to wear in

First things first, the aesthetics of the Adidas MC80 are inspired by adidas's archives from the 1980s and certainly remind us of a brogue style shoe. Cutting to the chase, the MC80 certainly scores high marks when it comes to the shelf appeal department and, if the pair that we tested don't appeal to your tastes, there are plenty of other colorways available that will suit.

Along with the looks, the shoes are crammed with technology, such as Lightstrike and Boost technology in the midsole providing an almost memory foam mattress feel on the soles of our feet. There is also a Torsion stability bar, which is prominent in a number of the golf shoes mentioned in this guide. As such, slipping the shoe out the box and right onto the course, it's clear that there is an incredible amount of comfort. Moving away from the looks and comfort, one of the main stand outs was the stability that this shoe gives you. For a spikeless model it does, in fact, get close to the performance of the best spiked golf shoes, with the TPU spikeless outsole doing a fantastic job of keeping me planted through the swing.

Not the best winter golf shoe in terms of grip
-
Leather may start to crack after a while 

A stylish and comfortable golf shoe that is designed for use in the summer months, the adidas Flopshot delivers comfort and looks great thanks to its all-white leather design. It ranks as one of the most comfortable golf shoes on the market thanks to the FitFoam Geo cushioning found in the heel and ankle of this shoe, which combine to deliver excellent stability when walking on undulating terrain. 

The shoe is also made from a full-grain leather upper which is both waterproof and features breathable holes that helped to keep our feet feeling well ventilated. While the leather on the upper gives the shoe a very premium feel, admittedly the material may start to crack over time without the appropriate care. But we really liked the geometric design on the rear of the shoe was also a touch that added yet another premium feel to these golf shoes. 

As this is a spikeless golf shoe, it can sometimes struggle to perform in wetter and muddier conditions (for better options for softer ground look to our best winter golf shoes guides). But when used in the summer on dryer terrain, its Pure Motion outsole gives great grip underfoot. Combine that with its Boost midsole cushioning, and you'll feel very well supported wearing the adidas Flopshot during your round.

Not as stable as other shoes

The name gives the game away with this shoe. Adidas has combined throwback sneaker-like looks with modern performance to give us this, the Adicross Retro shoe. And we love it. Although not very traditional in terms of style, most of the color options are understated, making it one of the most suitable models you'll find that can be worn for day-to-day use. We love the versatility on offer here and reckon this will be a huge hit among many golfers as one of the best casual golf shoes on the market.

And for those who want something a little more flamboyant, there is something for everyone in the nine different color options. In particular, we really liked how comfortable they were and just how much they felt like trainers. There is also a good mount of grip on offer from the rubber traction nubs. It's by no means industry-leading in this category but it does the job on a dry day. Take a look at our guide on the best waterproof golf shoes for more options that will help you fend off the rain.

Some will want more stability

The women's Codechaos golf shoe is unlike anything else on the market. It offers a unique look and we have been fans since it was first released. The colors on offer here are excellent and deliver a very premium look, thanks to the bright white upper and pink sole. We're in no doubt that this will be a hit among many female golfers. Performance-wise, it comes with a unique Twistgrip spikeless outsole with special lug shapes gave us plenty of grip whatever the conditions, and at the same time the full-length Boost cushioning across the midsole delivered a light and springy feel underfoot. 

We reckon we could play in these all day and not feel the strain on our feet and we'd even venture to say we'd enjoy wearing them away from the golf course! The multi-layer mesh upper also makes them durable and breathable, while providing full protection from the elements. We particularly love the splash of coral on the side and sole of a shoe that's quickly become a go-to of ours.

The adidas Summervent golf shoe is, as you would expect from the name, the perfect golf shoe for playing in summer conditions. We've been lucky enough to get our hands on a pair of these shoes and they are as light to walk in as they look. They offer superb ventilation thanks to the mesh air venting fabric that really does allow your feet to breathe. On a warm day on the course, that kept our feet feeling very warm on the golf course and the shoe fabric remains soft and supple to wear also. 

The chunky trainer-style sole, akin to many of the best golf sneakers on the market and they delivered a lot of bounce and cushioning throughout out gate that added a spring to our step but also allowed us to maintain a lot of control throughout our swing. The only downside is you will need another pair of shoes for the wet and wintery months because these are not totally waterproof, and when ground conditions are unstable we would recommend investing in a spiked model as well.
