We broke news about the pre-release of the Adidas adiPure IV SL a few weeks back, and now they have finally been officially released on the market. What an awesome boot these look to be, they have a classic look that really appeals in my opinion. And a super soft K-leather upper is always a welcome addition, especially when you factor in how light these really are!
If you are wondering what SL stands for, it is “Super Light”, and that is where Adidas has placed emphasis with this release.
The adiPure SL weighs in at an incredible 7.0oz – meaning it is lighter than the likes of the Nike Vapor VI. I am not entirely sure that the adiPure range was ever intended to be a speed boot, but if these carry the same performance as the adiPure IV, Adidas have pulled off a pretty phenomenal feat! The K-leather upper mixed with the same last that is used in the adiZero, creates a very appealing combo.
Obviously, testing is going to be key in finding out exactly what the adiPure IV SL is all about – and I can guarantee we will have a full review of this limited edition boot as soon as they are available. They also come with a pretty sweet shoe bag, which is something we don’t normally see Adidas doing. Right now you can get a pair for $250.
