Adidas have released a new color of the Adidas F50 Adizero, and they’re defiantly going to stand out. There purple, and I mean really purple, with highlighter green, and a deep fluorescent red color called Infrared. The colors work together quite well, and look really good on the pitch as they really stand out against the grass.
Since they’re leather, these soccer boots are very durable, which can be a problem for other super-light synthetics. The upper is made of Goleo calf-leather, which provides a snug fit and a leather touch, but still only weights in at 165 grams. The midsole contains an ultra light midsole inlay which feels good on the tops of your feet and prevents nay rubbing or blisters on the back of your heel. These soccer shoes also come with a second pair of comfort sockliners in the box. I wore mine for training, and I didn’t need them, but its nice to have the option if I ever decide to go with them.
The sprint frame construction in these Adidas F50’s is supposed to use geometrically shaped cleats to provide you with the perfect balance between light weight and optimal stability. Now I don’t know a lot about geometry, maths not really my bag, but the studs are very stable, and I’ve got no complaints about the traction they allow. The bottom studs are designed with new stud shapes to maximize speed, acceleration, and traction in wet or dry conditions.
Overall, they’re a great pair of boots, and the color is flashy, but class. At $199.99, they’re not cheap, but should last for a quite a while as they’re leather.
