The adizero Tour ($180) is the latest adidas shoe to integrate the company’s ultra-lightweight adizero technology already found in everything from running shoes to soccer cleats to basketball shoes. As a result, the new model weighs in at mere 10.6 ounces when using the included Cloudfoam insole — making it 38% lighter than the already advanced Tour360 ATV.

A new Sprintframe outsole is responsible in large part for weight reduction and measures only 1.2mm thick, giving the shoe another superlative: the thinnest outsole ever found in the adidas Golf line. Those who prefer a bit more comfort can swap in the included Fitfoam sockliner for additional padding at the expense of a few ounces; if the signature vivid yellow colorway is a bit too Big Bird for your look on the links, white, black and light grey options are also available.
