A pretty hot topic recently has been the Adidas adiPure IV SL and how they actually fit – are they true to size or half a size large? Another typical query is how they compare in size to other Adidas releases? The focus for this post is on the boot on the left, with the F50 adiZero placed in the center for visualization.
Here is you answer: They fit slightly long, but not quiet enough to call it an extra half size. I wear a size 9US and like a snug fit. With the adiPure SL, I found there was a little extra room along the toe region – but not enough for me to need a size down. If you normally have some additional room in your size, consider ordering a half size down for a tight fit. You can see in the image that the leather upper angles towards the front of the boot in a different fashion to the adiZero. One of the primary differences lies in how both uppers are stitched. It is important to note that the soleplates used on both releases has the very same dimensions, so the variance in size lies in the design of the upper.
Summing up, the adiPure SL fits the very same as the adiPure IV, while they fit a little longer than what I would call the absolute “true to size” fitting Leather F50 adiZero.
