Bear with us, here. We don't cover golf shoes—or any golf apparel or gear for that matter—very often. But we just had to share these. Adidas's new Golf Samba, which will be available this spring, looks exactly like the iconic soccer cleat we all grew up wearing, and a few of our friends still like to rock on occassion.

It's not just an appeal to all the soccer-players-turned-golfers: The Golf Samba is a legit shoe for the course, with six low profile traction lugs in a gum rubber sole to anchor you to the turf, so you stay grounded next time you finesse your nine iron. Available March 2012, $100, adidasgolf.com
