adidas: Low Am Shoes
adidas launch a new colour-way of the popular Crossknit DPR shoe for the final major of 2020
SAVE THE DATE: Monday, November 9th 6am GMT.
Ahead of the final major of 2020, adidas have revealed a limited-edition version of their Crossknit DPR golf shoe that celebrates the amateurs in the field next week and the club's famous Crow's Nest accommodation they stay in.
The special green, white and grey colour shoe features understated characteristics inspired by the surroundings that only a select few amateurs get to experience. A deep green lining with “LOW AM” branding gives a nod to the unique carpet found throughout the amateur’s lodging for the week, while a special tab on the tongue represents the familiar windowpanes. The words “LOW” and “AM” are embedded underneath the fish-scale Traxion sole of the left and right foot, respectively. These shoes are designed to transport the wearer to a place where time stands still and no blade of grass is out of place.
“Whenever we do footwear like this, we always look for the subtle storylines that make a tournament special,” said Masun Denison, global director of footwear, adidas Golf. “This year, we thought it would be fitting to celebrate the unique experience the small group of amateurs get when they head to Augusta and sleep steps from the first tee, hoping to hang on until Sunday so that they can earn the right to be called the Low Amateur and have a chair next to that year’s champion.”
The Crossknit DPR is built on adidas' extremely comfortable Ultraboost running midsole in a textile upper with supportive Forgegrame technology to help keep golfers stable throughout the swing. The shoe comes in a special box and includes an exclusive dust bag to commemorate the moment.
These shoes are incredibly limited and a real collector's item due to the tournament being played in November for the first time in history. Set your alarms for the early start of the final major of the year.
