With the new Adidas F50 adiZero pretty close to release, we are starting to see more players testing blackout pairs that seem to mimic an F50 silo. One player in particular that has been sporting a pair in both games and training has been Lille forward, Salomon Kalou. Since the Ivory Coast international has worn F50’s in the past, it only makes sense that he would be testing out a new version and it is what leads us to believe that they are the real deal.
Adding to all the hype, we also obtained the below close-up image of what the boots look like. Since they are a blackout, it is extremely tough to make out what they are all about but it does give us some clear insight into the direction Adidas are headed. The one obvious detail is that there is plenty of texture right around the upper, with a slightly weaved pattern sitting through the forefoot. Adidas also stick with their trusted Sprintframe outsole.
On a slightly different note for fans of the current F50 series, I recommend checking out the limited edition Graphic Pink version before they sell-out!
Check out the controversially revealed image below.
The initial version of the F50 adiZero hit the market way back in May 2010, with an updated version hitting the market compliments of Lionel Messi in September of last year. That leads us to believe that the newest version, which offers a very different look, will be released very shortly and around kick-off time of the big leagues in Europe. Stay tuned for more details as we get them.
