If you have followed any updates since their release, the reaction to the Adidas X15 has been very loud. Fans have been active in letting Adidas know their thoughts about the retirement of several key boots, with its replacement looking like, well, total Chaos!
But, that is the purpose of this release, to push the boundaries and provide players with something that they have never experienced before. Take for example the wild design featured on the outer side of each boot. There is a purpose to its inclusion, as it adds support from stopping right through to the second step as you sprint away.
To really understand what they are all about, I recommend checking out the above documentary that talks about the boot and its creation process. Adidas really shed purposeful light on what they are trying to achieve with this boot and how they implemented key features to improve player performance.
Destroy order. Smash defenses. Create victory. X15, built for the gamechanger.
One other key note I wanted to discuss at this point is how smart adidas decision is to cater the boot as an FG/AG. In other words, they have done extensive testing to ensure the X15.1 can be used on both firm and artificial surfaces. Players commonly use boots on both surfaces (I would be one of them) yet there has been great debate on whether players should do that or not. By providing the answer in the title, adidas alleviates any doubts and provides players with a one boot option for both surfaces!
