Tour360 XT SL2.0 - Blister Issues

Recommended Posts

Hey all - I recently got a pair of these as a birthday gift (https://www.adidas.com/us/tour360-xt-sl-2.0-spikeless-golf-shoes/EG4871.html). They're gorgeous shoes and with the boost footbed are really comfortable except for one MAJOR issue.

I've worn them for a few rounds (45 holes total) and each time they've given me terrible blisters on my heels (both feet). I walk, so a blister here or there isn't unexpected nor the end of the world, but after 6 or 7 holes these are basically unwearable.

Anyone else have any experience with this?

I don't have those shoes, but have you tried Kentwool socks?

"Kentwool socks are worn by dozens of PGA and LPGA Tour professionals, who trust Kentwool socks to perform over a long and grueling season. 
Kentwool socks are the only socks that carry a Blister-Free Guarantee. And like all of Kentwool's products, they are manufactured in the U.S.A."

I only wear Kentwool socks... all year long, for the last 6 years.

Interesting. I haven't heard of these before. They're a bit pricey but maybe worth a shot...

They changed the names on me.  I have a bunch of Tour Profile and Tour Standard.  I went to order some more and I didn't see them on their website.  I sent a note off and got this response...

"The Men's Tour Series has been changed to the Men's Classic Series.  The Tour Profile is now known as the Men's Classic Ankle and the Tour Standard is now know as the Men's Classic Crew."

I haven't compared the new socks yet to the old, but they should be good with the same guarantee.

They have sales so get on their mailing list.

i was so psyched when I bought them, then, the absolutely the worst shoes ever for me.  3 holes and both feet blistered.  I finished my round shoeless!

This was the advice Harry gave me (if you haven't returned your already!):

Ive been having the same issue with these shoes. Wore them for 4 holes walking and limped off the course. My heels were shredded. I love the look and highly rated so it would be a bummer to return.

I used 1 strip of hockey tape that ran from my Achilles tendon down under my heel it eliminated the blisters. After having them about a month I tried a 9 hole round and had some minor irritation by the end, 18 would have been a blister so I went back to taping. About 2 months into golf season now and I did an 18 hole round with cart and no irritation. I think they might be safe to use without tape for 18 walking now. Was a painful process (literally) but these shoes are so comfortable, I feel it was worth it.
