No Dye Capsule | adidas Golf
Proving that you don't always need colour...
adidas Golf's latest footwear collection offers a new take on colour: you don’t always need it.
Today adidas Golf is introducing some special footwear models – their No-Dye Collection – where the upper is made entirely with the material’s natural colour-way. By focusing on using the material in its natural form, they use less water, energy and chemicals. It’s another area where adidas are looking for ways to be more sustainable beyond their initiative to help END PLASTIC WASTE. This unique selection will be featured in the adicross ZX PRIMEBLUE silhouette and new ZG21 Motion footwear for both men and women.
The dyeing part of the creation process is a water-thirsty business. Since the brand creates so many products, they are always looking at ways they can do better about their impact on the environment, and that includes the way they use water to dye materials. When adidas uses naturally coloured fabric, they are able to achieve an average of 60 percent savings on water and energy.
“We’re continually evaluating ways to reduce our environmental impact when it comes to our products,” said Masun Denison, global director of footwear, adidas Golf. “We want to give golfers another reason beyond just style and performance to feel good about the shoes they’re wearing, and this collection allows them to make a positive difference in the world – all while playing the sport they love.”
The absence of dye in this footwear will give golfers a distinct look and style as they head to the course. Beyond the look, all models within this collection are also part of their standard to use materials to further the brand's mission to help END PLASTIC WASTE.

adicross ZX PRIMEBLUE
New to the range for this season, the adicross ZX PRIMEBLUE is inspired by the Originals ZX series. The timeless franchise that has been part of the adidas brand for more than 30 years first came to golf when they introduced the ZX 8000 Golf in September of last year. This no dye version features the same adiwear and Traxion outsole for the grip golfers need, coupled with the signature Torsion bar for added stability. The textile upper is made with yarn containing a minimum of 50 percent Parley Ocean Plastic as part of the mission to help END PLASTIC WASTE.
ZG21 Motion / ZG21 Motion BOA
adidas has taken their newest model, the ZG21 that they introduced in January, and have made it more sustainable with ZG21 Motion. This special no-dye version will introduce another chapter for ZG21 by incorporating a textile upper made with a minimum of 50 percent recycled content. The line also introduces a new BOA model that features a sock-like opening for added stability and the new PerformFit Wrap powered by the BOA Fit System. This ‘Y’-strap design creates a secure fit over the instep and provides flexibility and freedom in the toe box.
