Check out these exclusive, limited edition Adidas F50 adiZero that have been released to coincide with this weekends Portland Timbers versus Seattle Sounders game, otherwise known as the the Cascadia Cup. This one has the potential to cause a mass frenzy!
Officially listed as a Metallic Gold/Green Zest/Metallic Silver, the design can easily be sported by both clubs and there will be several pairs worn by players of both sides in this weekends game. We are talking a proper Gold upper here with some serious Green detailing, that creates an incredible pop. There is a definite air of sophistication about the look that will have more than just the fans of both teams interested in a pair, although there is also bound to be a few critics as well. They are bold, brash and full of charm. It is almost like the Adidas folks headed out into the Cascade Range and picked a bunch of colors on what they found – “there’s some gold in them there hills!”
Fan’s do have the opportunity to picking up a pair of these exclusive boots, but numbers of the highly vivid colorway are very limited and you can only get them from one online store.
The place to find them is on soccer.com, listed for $249.99.
We don’t often get limited edition release like this for MLS games, so it simply shows the growth of soccer in the US as well as the fierce rivalry instilled between the Timbers and the Sounders. Both teams have huge followings and if you have ever been to a game at either stadium, you will know how much passion is involved. Releasing a boot just for this game is another enormous step forward and even if I won’t be sporting a pair, I am glad to see their release. It signifies something much bigger than just taste in boots. Kudos to the people that managed to pull this one off, and I’m definitely excited to see more releases like this in the future!
[Also: Adidas F50 adiZero Review]
This released version of the boot features a soft galeo calf-leather upper with plenty of stitching through the forefoot. The stitching allows the boot to mold across you foot and create a more individual shape. Everything about them is designed for lightweight speed. They weigh in at a meager 6.1 oz thanks in part to Adidas exclusive SprintFrame solepate, which we currently see on the majority of their silos. It is lightweight and provides solid support right through your foot. Players such as Lionel Messi and Gareth Bale wear a similarly constructed boot.
Again, soccer.com is the place to go if you want to see more of this release.
