It is one we have been waiting to hear official confirmation on, and today it arrived! Adidas is set to retire their four top silo’s (No more Predator, f50, 11Pro and Nitrocharge) and replace them with two new revolutionary boots – the Adidas X and Adidas Ace.
Rather being the evolution of the brand, adidas are touting this as a “revolution”, as they look to modernism everything they have on offer.
The game of football has changed over the years. Positions, traits and attributes that mattered before are irrelevant now. There’s a new set of rules. Forget everything you thought you knew about football, the future is now and adidas is leading from the front.
adidas has always been the leading brand in football innovation and, working with top coaches such as Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho, they have identified that the game has changed and instead of previously defined player types or positions, modern football teams nowadays need only two types of player on the pitch.
Speaking ahead of the launch of adidas’ latest product breakthrough, Pep Guardiola said:
It’s chaos or control. You need both. They are part of the game. Part of the field. You need players who have to analyse what you have to do. And there are other ones who have to be a bit free and show his talent as much as possible. When you have a team you mix both types of ideas. You have a big advantage.
The football world will wake up and take notice on Monday 25th May when adidas’ revolutionary new products designed for the modern game are unveiled for the first time. They are then set to be worn in the Champions league final for the first time.
The only remaining question is how to figure out if you are X or Ace?
