GIVE IT TO ME STRAIGHT

No, all golf shoes are not created equal. During the current trend leaning heavily towards spikeless, the adidas CODECHAOS has certainly made an impact. Its lightweight design and sneaker-like look combined to make it a huge hit when the line came out in 2020. Two years on, adidas hopes to continue that success with the CODECHAOS 22 line.

The adidas CODECHAOS has been a trendsetter in the spikeless shoe category with bold colors and design. Now adidas has shaken things up again with more colorways and technical improvements.

Dive in with me to see what adidas has changed and what they have kept the same.

NEW DESIGN AND INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES

The CODECHAOS 22 has had a facelift, to say the least. It has a refreshed look and the improved shape provides a better connection with the ground throughout your swing, according to adidas. But they focused most of their attention on another technology built into the shoe.

With the industry coming out with all these fancy and funky names to describe their technologies, adidas is no exception: introducing TWISTGRIP technology.

If you look at the heel and mid section of the shoe, you will see the side wraps. These wraps, according to adidas, improve grip and performance. What I can say about reinforced wraps along the side of the shoe is that they help with stability and reduce the chances of your foot spilling out of the shoe.

adidas has revamped the upper to be a bold design made with recycled materials. The multi-layer performance textile helps keep your freshies looking fresher for longer.  The CODECHAOS has a waterproof warranty and adidas’s boost technology.

NEW BOA/ZIPPER MODEL ADDED

Let’s address the elephant in the room: adidas definitely makes a fashion statement with a zipper down the middle of the shoe. The new BOA model features a new closure system with technical overlapping panels to allow for a easy-on and -off customizable fit. I can see golfers either loving or hating this.

If you can get past the look, the BOA is located at the side of the shoe to enable a tighter mid and heel section. This in turn helps lock in your heel for a more compact back section while keeping the comfort throughout.
