adidas Golf Icons Pack | Limited-edition
adidas Golf has launched its latest footwear for the course, the limited-edition Icons Pack, just in time for this year’s PGA Championship at Oak Hill Country Club, Rochester, New York. A celebration of the brand’s rich heritage that features classic designs with updated technology fabrics, the Icons Pack portrays precisely this with the footwear cross-referencing multiple sports and now re-invented for the golf course.
The Icons Pack includes three iconic shoe models best associated with casual wearing from adidas, which have all been re-vamped for the golf course. With trend-setting silhouettes that combine streetwear with the fairways, the Icons Pack will include some of the most popular styles that have seen a rise in the ever-popular casual styling for golfing fits. All updated with a new cool grey/off-white fresh colorway, the three signature pieces adidas have included in this limited-edition collection are the Samba, the Stan Smith, and the Superstar.
“From the pitch to the course, the limited-edition, high-performance, timeless classics are back.”
To kick start the Icons Pack, the adidas Samba - was initially designed in the 1940s for footballers to train in various conditions (e.g. icy, hard ground, sandy). The brand then switched its focus on converting the shoe to the casual/streetwear scene and is now updated for the golf course. There are multiple features designed throughout the shoes, such as a water-resistant upper to keep your feet dry no matter the conditions, an EVA cushioned midsole for ultimate comfort wearing, and three integrated rubber spikes in the classic herringbone pattern in critical areas. The timeless design of this classic silhouette combines style with functionality, and the traditional lace-up closure allows for a secure and perfect fit.
THE STAN SMITH
“These shoes blend a throwback style with golf-specific performance.”
Initially designed in the 1960s for the tennis court and named after the famous tennis player (Stan Smith) these shoes have now been created for the golf course. Appearing heavily in the casual/streetwear scene in recent decades, just like the Sambas and now designed with golfers in mind. In association with Vice Golf, the Stan Smiths have features designed throughout, including a traditional textile upper/lining, an iconic Adiwear multi-coloured outsole, and brown heel overlays. As with the Sambas, the Stan Smiths also feature an EVA cushioning midsole for the perfect wearing comforts required for the golf course, whilst the styling and spikeless outsole allows for off-course wearing in a casual fit. An absolute throwback from adidas Golf that blends both fashion and function, ready to hit the summer greens in style.
“Originally made for basketball courts in the '70s, now built for the most iconic courses.”
From the court to the course, the Superstar shoes are now reworked and ready for the summer fairways. Inspired by the iconic basketball sneakers, these limited-edition kicks include the Icons Pack grey/off-white colourway, which has a grey upper, an off-white midsole/toe, and brown accents. Unlike the other two in the pack, the Superstars feature removable soft spikes encouraging the wearer to walk from the course to the streets and keep the same style. These OG shoes are a must-have to refresh your summer fit, and the world-famous leather-toe cap will make your peers jealous as you set up on the first tee. As with all adidas Golf footwear, the Superstars deliver quality forward-thinking technologies; the Cloadfoam cushioned midsole fused with Adiwear outsole technology makes for outstanding comfort, support, durability and traction.
