adidas EQT Golf Shoes Review

adidas is big brand on the market when it comes to shoes, as shown by the fact many of the world's best players put adidas shoes on their feet in competition. Dustin Johnson, Collin Morikawa and Xander Schauffele are three of the most high-profile. 

This comes as no surprise to us because adidas makes high quality spiked models like the Tour360 22 and ZG21 shoes as well as the Codechaos and Adicross Retro spikeless designs. As you can see if you click through to our reviews of those shoes, they all tested incredibly well. Looking to continue this run of quality, we recently got our hands on the EQT spikeless golf shoes, which will be the topic of this review and video below. 

Let's start with the looks. I think a lot of spikeless golf shoes struggle to be versatile enough to be used on and off the golf course but the EQT's are. With a trainer-style design the shoes deliver in a lot of ways when walking the golf course, whilst also looking good on concrete as well. Additionally I like the fact adidas has created a wide array of colors ranging from the very simple white model, all the way to more colorful designs like the grey, green and black model. Additionally the model I tested sits in the middle, a simple grey and white finish with a pop of blue at the heel.

Moving on to comfort the EQT shoes are one of the most lightweight and comfortable models I have ever tested. Walking in them was never an issue because of the Bounce midsole and Boost in the heel, as well as the extra thick tongue which really feels soft against the top part of the foot. The materials used felt soft throughout and there was no uncomfortable rubbing anywhere as well. It is no exaggeration to say these golf shoes provide all-day comfort because I did wear them several times whilst covering The Masters at Augusta National.

The shoes also offer waterproofing despite the mesh synthetic upper which is a must-have in modern golf shoes. Additionally the shoe is made from Primegreeen, a series of high-performance, recycled materials, which is an avenue adidas is really leading the way in the golf sector.

All of that is positive but there are a couple of negatives worth mentioning - the grip in wet conditions is slightly questionable especially when comparing alongside spiked models. Don't get me wrong the Adiwear rubber outsole is good in dry conditions but in the wet it can be limited. I also think over time the mesh part will get harder and harder to clean, especially if you do decide to use these shoes in wet and muddy conditions. I did manage to clean the mesh part a couple of times to good effect but over time I think this may be an issue.

Given these two tiny weaknesses I would say the EQT shoes are another spikeless model from adidas that would be perfect for the summer season. They look great in several colors, provide outstanding comfort and the value for money is top-notch too because these shoes have an RRP of around $100.
