One cleat that we have not got around to reviewing, but have been very keen to feature, is the Adidas adiPURE II. Now,for anyone that is a fan of the Adidas Copa Mundial cleat, you will be interested to find out about the adiPURE. The first range of the adiPURE was released in 2008, prior to Euro 2008. In January of this year, the adiPURE II was released.
So what makes the adiPURE a good cleat to purchase? Well its simple, just like its predecessor the Copa Mundial, it is handcrafted with the best materials without losing out to any of the current day technological advances. The upper uses Kangaroo leather giving it an incredible glove like fit. Cleats like these are designed to mold to the shape of your feet, particularly if you break them in the right way. The asymmetrical lacing allows for a larger striking area and increased control. Also, the tongue is cut off at the ankle line, meaning when you tighten the laces, the cleat sits extra cleanly and comfortably against your ankle.
There is such a classic feel and look to the cleat, especially with the colorways Adidas use. The black version is complimented by the white area located around the mouth of the cleat. These boots are definitely designed for the simple, no-nonsense player who is serious about their game and just wants to get the job done. Words like ‘Style’ and ‘sophistication’ come to mind when you see these cleats. Worn by Players like Frank Lampard, Xabi Alonso and Kaka with style and a hard working attitude. The adiPURE II weighs in at 9.2oz.
When I offer advice on what cleat to purchase, the adiPURE is one of the first I mention. In terms of comfort and style at the best value, it is top of the list. Currently, the best price available is $129.99. Check out the full adiPURE range at soccer.com.
