adidas have become known for producing limited edition footwear anytime that a major comes around, and for this year's Masters they have decided to focus their design on celebrating the fantastic tradition of amateur golfers who are invited to stay and compete at Augusta National during the week.

Adidas Crossknit Low AM Shoes

As a result, we now have the adidas Crossknit DPR 'Low Am' shoe which will be available for purchase from November 9.

The Low Am uses the existing Crossknit DPR shoe as a base, and is said to feature understated characteristics which are said to mirror the design and surroundings inside the Crow's Nest.

There's a rich green sockliner complete with Low Am branding which mimics the carpet found throughout the lodging, whilst the tab on the tongue represents the windowpanes that some of golf's greatest players have looked out of during Masters week before turning professional.

On the sole, the words 'Low' and 'Am' are displayed on each shoe underneath the Traxion stability, so that the design can be shown off when golfers are in the follow-through of their swing.

The green, white and grey colourway serves as an instant reminder of the unique setting in which the tournament is played, where 'time has seemingly stopped and not a blade of grass is out of place'.

"Whenever we do footwear like this, we always look for the subtle storylines that make a tournament special. This year, we thought it would be fitting to celebrate the unique experience the small group of amateurs get when they head to Augusta and sleep steps from the first tee, hoping to hang on until Sunday so that they can earn the right to be called the Low Amateur and have a chair next to that year's champion."

The Crossknit DPR uses the Ultraboost running midsole, with a textile upper and supportive Foregrame technology which has been developed to help keep the golfer stable throughout the golf swing.

The limited edition shoes (£139.95/€179.95) come in a special box and include an exclusive dust bag to commemorate the moment, whilst there is also a limited edition white bucket hat available for those golfers in the US which comes with Augusta-style green and yellow detailing, and follows the same low amateur theme.
