This is one of those colorway releases that really defines and characterizes the true look of the Adidas F50 adiZero. What I mean by that is that the separation of colors really works to differentiate the leather and synthetic found on the upper. Officially they are listed as a Black/Metallic Silver/Lab Lime, and I have a strong feeling they will become the “Love it” or “Hate it” colorway in the current F50 adiZero range.
Personally, I’ve studied these for a while and I’m partially on the negative side. I do like the subtle Blue detailing through the upper (particularly on the heel) but the general design layout of the F50 forefoot is a little odd and thoroughly highlighted on this version.
In terms of retail, this Leather version retails at $209.99.
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.
Something important to note is that this is just the boot – if you want to include miCoach tracking system, you need to purchase a sensor separately or look for a combo deal. The F50 adiZero comes in at $210, while the miCoach chip can be purchased for $70.
