adidas Ace and X
Following the final day of the Premier League season yesterday, adidas have decided to start from scratch next campaign with two new football boots that will replace the current four silos offered by the brand. Introducing the adidas X and ACE.
No more F50, no more Predator, no more 11pro and no more Nitrocharge. According to adidas there is only chaos and control, and now there’s a boot for each style. And they are stunning.
Some players are born to control. They are the ones that pull the strings and set the pace. They bring order to a chaotic game. Players like Mesut Özil, James Rodríguez, Oscar, Manuel Neuer and Ivan Rakitić are the glue of some of the world’s best teams. For these players, adidas has designed ACE15.
The ACE15 is built to control with the revolutionary Control Web which gives ultimate ball control, thanks to an engineered 3D material. A 3-layer compound combines with grippy EVA for an unbeatable touch. A ground breaking new stud configuration puts more studs on the ball during foot-over moves to allow for complete ball control.
But some players can never be controlled. They are the spark that ignites a game. They defy rules and structure. These players are specialists in chaos. Thomas Müller, Gareth Bale, Luis Suárez, Karim Benzema and Álvaro Morata, these players strike without a moment’s notice. For them, adidas has created X15.
X15 is the ultimate weapon for the game’s most dangerous players. The Techfit Collar offers a compression fit around the ankle for superior support and fit. The X-Claw base is built to give complete traction with a lightweight feel, while the innovative X-Cage is built for the most dynamic and agile players in the world. A fragmented and lightweight design gives ultimate support during the most agile movements. The X-Skin is made up of a complex three layered system that delivers comfort, protection and performance in any conditions.
While we’ll miss the Predators especially, we can’t wait to try these beauties on for size. The adidas Ace and X boots will first be warn at the Champions League Final in Berlin on Saturday 6th June, and the boots will be on general sale from Wednesday 1st July.
