|adiStreet: Justin Rose’s new golf shoe|
“The English pro doesn’t have natural flexion in his feet,” wrote The Tour Van’s Jennifer Gardner, “and, as a result, he often has pain in his feet from the golf swing. He trains barefoot or in barefoot-style shoes.”
Rose, who until the BMW Championship wore Adidas’ adiPure footwear, debuted a new shoe called the adiStreet. The shoe is spikeless (rubber cleats) and has the flexibility of a running shoe. It will be in retail stores on November 1. I bet adidas couldn’t be happier about Rose’s well-timed win.
Rose’s victory at Cog Hill moves him into third in the FedEx Cup Standings heading into this week’s Tour Championship in Atlanta. He is now ranked 17th in the Official World Golf Ranking.
And Justin has some cool new kicks. If the shoe fits … um, you know the rest.
