Adidas Samba and Street golf shoes

Adidas hasn't had a street silhouette golf shoe in a few seasons. For 2012, looks like they're bringing it back with two models... a Samba golf shoe and an Ecco Street styled golf shoe. So many companies are starting to jump on the bandwagon and I'm happy to see so many options. Just a few weeks ago, I saw the Ashworth Cardiffs in person for the first time and thought they looked solid and figured they would be my next golf shoes. With Nike and Adidas' lines for 2012 revealed, I'm not so sure about that anymore. I definitely like the black Samba and black Streets as well as Kikkors black Tennys.

Vans Wafflecup

Really diggin' the mascot. I'd like to try their wafflecup sole. I'm not a big fan of vulc shoes. In the past 5 years, I've probably skated 75/25 in favour of cup. I saw the above photo on a blog somewhere but forgot where so I did a google image search to try and find it and found this awesome Vans edible waffle promotion. Looks tasty.

Nike Dunk NG Golf Shoe

Several years ago, Nike did a limited run of golf Dunk SB's at a golf tournament during the Tampa pro contest. They had a Dunk SB upper with a golf sole. In Spring 2012, it looks like Nike is going to do a wide release of a Dunk golf shoe. Looks good to me... although none of the colorways are particularly to my liking. Image from here.

Biebel - Day in the life

Links action in this one. Biebel, Eldridge and Guy. Looks like slow ass greens. Just googled it and Roosevelt is a ghetto 9-hole muni. Still stoked to see these guys swing clubs. Biebel's park also looks super fun.

Rodrigo Tx in China

The last trick is incredible. And I really like the run on the red sculpture.

Rory McIlroy 2011 US Golf Open

Such an awesome swing. It's too bad the quality isn't great. I'm sure a super slow motion version of it exists somewhere... just not online. Thanks to
Mat McGrath for the link.

Nike prototype golf shoe

These looks pretty good to me. Reminds me of eS Koston 2's, which were one of my favourite shoes back in the day.

Here's a description:

The shoes are based on FREE technology, which Nike has implemented in their training shoes but yet to implement in their golf line. The technology which debuted in 2004 is highlighted by an outsole designed to mimic the natural movements of the foot while being lightweight and responsive.

This prototype features an upper part of the shoe made with polyurethane coated stretch fabric, found in Nike’s basketball shoes, and the outsole is geared to provide stability through Woods’ torque-filled swing.

“This will help give Tiger greater stability as he addresses the ball. The freedom of movement that natural motion technology delivers will also allow more power to be released through the swing rather than through the body – which can happen when your feet are too static.” said Tobie Hatfield of Nike.
