Adidas Drops the Limited-Edition Tokyo Collection CODECHAOS Shoe
to Unite and Connect Athletes
We’ve all played in one of those member/guest tourneys where you can keep throwing money in the pot to buy more mulligans. At this point, 2020 is feeling like the year that could use an unlimited number of mulligans.
As it stands now, the Summer Olympics in Tokyo will get its mulligan at this time next year. Adidas is commemorating the one-year countdown through the special Tokyo Collection of footwear comprised of 41 silhouettes across 19 sports. Included in the capsule is a limited edition CODECHAOS golf shoe in a signal pink colorway that was created to connect athletes without words.
While the footwear was originally intended to be worn in Tokyo by all Adidas athletes during their respective events this year, the repurposed collection now unites this same community in a different way as they continue to train and inspire in preparation for 2021. That means they have one more year to stay ready with the mindset to keep putting in one more workout, one more lap, one more rep, or even one more bucket of balls.
Launched earlier this year, the CODECHAOS is rebooting the traditional stereotypes of how a golf shoe can look and feel by bringing a sporty and progressive attitude to the course. Its design is meant to blur the lines by providing a connected look with the ground.
In just a few months on Tour, the CODECHAOS has made multiple strolls to the winner’s circle. Tyrrell Hatton and Daniel Berger laced up the CODECHAOS for victories at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and Charles Schwab Challenge, respectively. New world number one Jon Rahm dials in the perfect fit with a Boa model of the shoe.
To meet the performance demands of the top players in the world, Adidas developed a new, high-tech spikeless outsole for the shoe that marries a soft, yet durable rubber with a first-of-its-kind TPU insert. Called Twistgrip, this proprietary traction system was created by analyzing heat maps that assessed the way golfers distribute and shift their weight during the swing.
The vibrant pink Tokyo version may not be for everyone, but it does bring much-needed energy and positive vibes to 2020. I’ve been wearing a similar bright colorway of Adidas’ Ultraboost 20 running shoes throughout the summer and I love them.
The limited-edition Tokyo CODECHAOS is available now for men and women.
