Adidas and Nike have two spectacular cleats that are currently available for pre-order: the Nike CR7 Mercurial Vapor VIII and the Adidas F50 Adizero. We have already shown the CR7 Vapor and today we are going to look at the F50 Adizero. Adidas has, once again, redesigned the Adizero and this latest redesign looks fantastic.
This cleat remains incredibly light at only 5.8 ounces, which allows you to beat opponents with speed. The main difference between this version and previous versions is the style of the upper.
These new Adizero’s are sure to grab attention on the field. They are predominantly bright yellow with black at the heel. The two colors combine very nicely to provide a visually appealing cleat. Anyone who is familiar with the Adizero line of cleats will recognize this color pattern since Adidas used it with the older version of the Adizero. Why mess with a good thing, right?
This cleat features a single-layer Sprintskin upper. This helps make the cleat incredibly light, while also providing the player with great touch on the ball. Sprintweb is another nice feature of the F50 Adizero. This provides good stability that allows you to cut, even when you are flying around the field in these light cleats. The Sprintweb also helps increase stability. (Notice the use of Sprint everything. Adidas wants you to know that these cleats help make you faster by drastically reducing weight.)
In order to keep players comfortable on the field, Adidas put the Traxion stud pattern on these cleats. Traxion gives great grip on natural surfaces without putting pressure on your feet.
One last feature you get with the Adizero is miCoach compatibility. MiCoach allows players to track their stats on the field and compare with your friends and professionals. This is a great feature and can also let you know how your game is improving by keeping track of your stats.
All of these features make this cleat a perfect option for anyone who is a fan of speed. Not only are these light, they are also extremely comfortable and the technology allows you to track stats. This must be why Messi, one of the best players in the world, chooses Adidas F50 Adizero’s as his cleat of choice. As I mentioned above, these are currently available for pre-order at SoccerPro.com, so head over and check them out today!
