It's US Open week and that can only mean one thing - limited edition gear!
Last week, we saw Callaway's Oakmont inspired bags and headcovers its staffers will be using during the event. This week, adidas has put its effort forward in the form of specially designed Tour360 boost shoes.
There’s some limited edition US Open adidas clothing to get your teeth into.

Keep your eyes peeled for more over the coming days as the first round draws closer.
Russell Knox can’t find a driver
Inverness-born PGA Tour star Russell Knox appears to still be struggling to find a driver that works for him after breaking his nine-degree Cleveland Classic XL driver ahead of the Irish Open.
Knox had used the driver for several years including during his win at the WGC-HSBC Champions, but is now on the lookout for a new gamer. Here was his response to being asked about his driver search:
"I just got off the phone to my equipment provider actually. Neither of the drivers at the Memorial were particularly good, to be honest, so the search continues," he said.
"It’s not the ideal position to be in, I was driving the ball as well as I ever have done with the old driver before it broke in Ireland, so that was a real shame. But it’s part and parcel of golf, and it happens to everyone and I’m sure I’ll fine one eventually that I get along with."
New Ping Vault putters on tour
Spotted on the putting green last week at the St Jude Classic, these four new Vault putters from Ping are expected to be released to the wider golfing public soon.
The putters – two blades and two mallets – boast shapes that will be familiar to Ping flatstick fans, but it’s the face milling that appears to be new.
Full details are expected later this summer.

Cleveland Golf’s new RTX 3 wedges
Cleveland's 588 RTX and RTX 2.0 wedges have proven amongst the most popular models on the market amongst both amateurs and pros. Now, it appears there's a third generation on the way.
These RTX-3 wedges were spotted on the range by GolfWRX.com at the FedEx St Jude Classic Classic last week. According to their sources, there are at least three grinds - V-LG, V-MG and V-FG.
More details are expected over the next few months.
TaylorMade does M2 vs RBZ test
One of the most often asked questions about equipment releases is 'how are the claims being verified?'
Well, now TaylorMade is showing us exactly how it’s done in a clip showing just much distance its M2 fairway gains over its celebrated RBZ fairway wood. Same conditions, same swing speed, different club. Let's see what happens.
