Another one of Adidas latest releases is a Black/Black/Warning colorway in the lightweight F50 adizero series. Maybe it has to do with the fact that there have been some extremely unique design releases in the last few weeks (including some by Adidas), but these boots look pretty darn good to me! The all black leather look really has an old school feel and if I get my hands on pair I will definitely be wearing them on the field.
The Warning orange detailing also adds a different look, and the color combo really pops. The whole boot just looks like something you would expect to see players in the 50’s or 60’s wearing. It is funny how sometimes the simple designs can be the most effective and visually appealing boots! Another thing that makes them more appealing is the fact Adidas have gone with a leather upper on this release instead of a synthetic – always a bonus in my opinion. The leather is of course a full grain Galeo cow leather – one of the reasons that Adidas are able to keep the weight of the boot down.
My preferred choice between the leather and synthetic upper is the leather version. This is primarily due to the nature of the fit, and the fact that when these mold to your fit they are a terrific boot. But one thing you are giving up is the full superlight package, as these weigh in at 6oz, 0.2oz heavier than the synthetic. To be honest, the weight difference only equates to a “title” more than anything else. You will not notice a weight difference!
