Product Watch: adidas Golf Unveils Dustin Johnson / Wayne Gretzky Collaboration Golf Shoes

They’re undoubtedly greats within their sports, they’re soon to be officially be family, and now they have a golf shoe that represents them.

At the PGA TOUR’s Genesis Invitational Dustin Johnson will debut a special, limited-edition version of the adidas TOUR360 22 golf shoe that pays tribute to both him, and his future father-in-law, Wayne Gretzky.

Gretzky, of course, is revered as the greatest NHL player of all time with his 2,857 points and a legacy that has made his jersey number, 99, synonymous with nothing else but him. The number appears on the right shoe, and an additional Gretzky touch comes in the form of the stripe colours. They are clearly an homage to the Edmonton team that he won Stanley Cups with.

“Dustin and I have played a lot of golf together over the years, so this is definitely something special,” said Wayne Gretzky. “The adidas team did a great job to capture a piece of both of us with the design and made the new TOUR360 22 look great.”

Dustin Johnson “touches” on this special model of the shoe franchise that he made recognizable also come with the inclusion of his “DJ” logo” on the left shoe and sockliner. And the Navy colourway on the three-stripes reflects his favourite hue.

“I’ve been part of some amazing collaborations with the adidas team over the years, but this one definitely goes to the top of the list,” said adidas athlete Dustin Johnson. “Wayne is the greatest to ever play hockey and I know how much he loves golf, so to be there with him side by side on this limited edition TOUR360 22 is really cool.”

Unveiled last month, the TOUR360 22 is the flagship of the adidas golf shoe line-up.

“Once Dustin and Wayne started playing together pretty frequently in pro-ams we always had it in our heads to create something unique that celebrated both of them,” said Masun Denison, global footwear director, adidas Golf. “The TOUR360 22 provides the perfect canvas for something like this and knowing how much hockey players love to play golf, we know this will be exciting for fans of both sports.”

To align with the shoe collaboration, adidas will also be selling a special edition hat that features the “99” and “DJ” logos.

Both the hat and limited-edition colourway of our TOUR360 22 will be available in limited quantities beginning Friday, February 25 on adidas.ca, the adidas app, and at select retailers worldwide.

The special edition shoes will sell for about (CDN) $290.
