adidas Crossflex by Michael Hesterberg

A look behind the 2012, adidas Crossflex Golf shoe by designer, Michael Hesterberg.

“Debuted at the 2012 Olympics in the golf exhibition and worn by the South Korean archery team due to its great grip on turf and grass alike, the crossflex was one of the first true athletic golf shoes, spikeless and mesh, it was the first mesh shoe worn in a major tournament, the 2012 Ryder Cup on the feet of Sergio Garcia.” – Michael

From market analysis to initial sketches, renderings and a final beauty shot of the finnished shoe, we get a decent look at some of the process that went into creating the Crossflex, below.
