Product: Air Jordan ADG golf shoes

Pitch: Via Jordan: "Jump up the leaderboard in the Nike Men’s Air Jordan ADG Golf Shoes. Famed for its incredible comfort and lightweight feel, the ADG features a Zoom Air unit for responsive cushioning and an integrated lacing system for a secure, supportive fit. The Integrated Traction pattern offers you enhanced grip on every terrain and the signature Jumpman logos give you extra style on the course."

Our take on Air Jordan ADG golf shoes

Confined to the feet of Keegan Bradley for years, the iconic sneaker brand seems to have proof of concept in the golf space, as evidenced by the growing roster of tour players (Pat Perez, Harold Varner III), and numerous retail offerings.

We got to test one of said retail offerings: the just-released spikeless Air Jordan ADG. Now, the Jordan style may not be for every golfer (can't imagine them catching on in Tuesday morning senior leagues across the nation), but if you like the look of Js on the court or street, you'll love the look of these. Indeed, you'll probably love the look of all Jordan offerings for the fairway, as the company has done an excellent job of bringing its aesthetic to golf, rather than the opposite (if that makes sense...tacking the Jumpman logo on a pair of saddle shoes was never going to work).

    I loved the shoe, i have the 3 colorway. Very comfy, remind me of my NRG AM 90 IT, the white university red and the white dark concord look very good when wearing short, the black look good in pants.

    Were different colors on the bottom an option? Why do some pictures look yellowish and the others bluish?

    Nike/Jordan hurting on ADG sales? WRX getting shill money to promote Jordan’s now? Shoes have been out since March and they use pre-production (clear/yellow soles) and retail shoes (blue soles) in the photos? No mention of the 3rd colorway? No HV3 on tour shots? No mention of being based on the zoom IT90? No mention of sizing being 1/2 larger based on other J/nike shoes? Heck golfposer had a better write up back in early March!

    Shoes are great as I have white and black but yeeesh this post is 2 months late and weak!

    You are absolutely right about sizing in these, for anyone interested. Typically between 11.5/12 in most brands (45 in Ecco), and the size 12 ADG shoes I ordered were enormous. Look nice but had to send back.
