adidas drop some Champions League fire
Seemingly out of nowhere, adidas release the next generation X football boots.
With the Champions League Final just a few days away, adidas have dropped their latest and greatest iteration of the X! The newly upgraded speed silo will be worn this Saturday night in Kiev, by the likes of Gareth Bale, Marcelo, Karim Benzema and the man of the moment, Mo Salah.
The X18+ becomes the first installment to adidas’ “Energy Mode” pack, which will be worn throughout the summer in Russia, at the 2018 World Cup. Man City baller Gabriel Jesus is one of the key athletes who’ll be lacing up in the boots along with Uruguayan forward and serial biter Luis Suarez.
I did get a sneaky look at these a few weeks ago and I’ve got to say, despite not trying them on, I could instantly see a huge upgrade from the previous model. adidas have definitely brought back that F50 vibe, with the famous three stripes sitting in a similar position to the F50 adizero III, which was released way back in 2012. One thing’s for sure, I can’t wait to lace up in these and see if they make me any quicker!
