Who doesn’t love a good old Blackout release in their favorite range. Well, if you are an Adidas F50 adiZero fan, you have an opportunity to pick up a Blackout – with a little bit of extra detailing as a twist. Coming in a Black/Black/Infrared, there are sure to be a ton of fans hunting down a pair of theses shoes, especially since they are the same range worn by one Leo Messi. I’m a definite fan and love how the stitching along the front of the boot looks with the Black SprintWeb just above.
This version of the F50 adiZero is sure to sell out pretty quickly, but while they are on the market they retail for $209.99.
This release comes right on the heels of the extremely clean Running White/Lab Lime release worn by Lionel Messi in the past few weeks. One aspect of this boot that I am a fan of is the inclusion of a leather upper, which is a Galeo full-grain. It makes for a more responsive and natural touch on the ball, not quite what you get from a K-leather but in my opinion it offers better performance than the synthetic version.
Having recently tested the F50 adiZero miCoach, I just love the feeling as the ball connects with the leather upper, you can actually feel the ball cushion as it impacts your foot! At 6oz, there is no doubting the boot is designed for speed. And adding the concept of performance tracking makes these a very appealing overall package. The miCoach chip does a good job of capturing your data through play and the benefits of seeing how you performed can help you improve your game. It sits very comfortably in the cavity of the boot and you will have no idea it is there through wear.
