adidas EQT Golf Shoe Review


adidas EQT Golf Shoe Review

adidas is a big brand in the market when it comes to footwear, as evidenced by the fact that many of the best players in the world put adidas shoes on their feet in competition. Dustin Johnson, Collin Morikawa and Xander Schauffele are three of the most prominent.

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

Let’s start with the look. I think a lot of spikeless golf shoes struggle to be versatile enough to use on and off the golf course, but EQTs are. With a coach-style design, the shoes offer plenty of ways to walk on the golf course, while also looking great on concrete. Also, I love that adidas has created a wide range of colors from the very simple white model to more colorful designs like the grey, green and black model. Also, the model I tested is in the middle, a simple gray and white finish with a hint of blue in the heel.

Moving on to comfort, the EQT shoes are one of the lightest and most comfortable shoes I’ve ever tested. Walking in it was never a problem thanks to the Bounce midsole and Boost in the heel, as well as the extra thick tongue that feels really soft against the top of the foot. The materials used were soft throughout and there was no uncomfortable rubbing anywhere either. It’s no exaggeration to say that these golf shoes provide all-day comfort, as I wore them several times while covering the Masters at Augusta National.

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

This is all positive, but there are a few negatives to mention – grip in wet conditions is slightly questionable, especially when comparing with spiked models. Don’t get me wrong, the Adiwear rubber outsole is good in dry conditions, but in wet weather it can be limited. I also think that over time the mesh part will become more and more difficult to clean, especially if you decide to use these shoes in wet and muddy conditions. I’ve managed to clean the mesh part several times with success, but over time I think this can be a problem.

Considering these two small weaknesses, I would say that the EQT shoes are another studless model from adidas that would be perfect for the summer season. They look great in multiple colors, provide exceptional comfort, and the value for money is also great as these shoes have an RRP of around $100.
