As part of their “Limited Collection” adidas today released the Eskolaite Pack, an eye-catching and special chrome transformation of ACE15 and X15, thanks to a unique new coating. Released in limited quantities, the reaction from fans to this release has been very enthusiastic. But what exactly is Eskolaite?
Eskolaite is an uncommon Chromium Oxide mineral and has been used for the very first time to give the Eskolaite Pack its striking design. The chrome coating, which has green accents, gives the Eskolaite Pack a truly bold new look without affecting boot performance.
The entire pack is set to be released tomorrow in limited numbers – keep your eyes tuned to soccer.com where the most pairs are sure to show up first! (*UPDATE: They are currently available via the above link)
Of both releases, we wanted to give a little more attention to the Ace15 on this one. The fresh colorway is excentuated on the heavily defined forefoot of the boot.
The adidas Ace15.1 is the boot that impresses us most of the new 2015 collection. Why? Because they opitomize everything you need in a boot. The upper is comfortable with an accommodating fit, they feature a soleplate and traction system that can adapt to multiple surfaces, and the upper provides a clean touch on the ball. Adidas has produced a final product that goes against player expectation and is advertised as a top performer for any style of attacking player. But don’t let that define the boot; Petr Cech, Leighton Baines and David de Gea are just some of the defensive style players currently wearing the boot. Realistically, they just make sense for both type of players.
The adidas X15.1 features several technical innovations, which all feature the letter X. There’s the reinforced X-Cage designed to keep the balance between a lightweight boot and one which offers the support a player needs on the pitch. The boot also features the X-Skin synthetic upper which offers up a veritable triple threat of softness, fit, and ball grip, as the upper is the beneficiary of a treatment known as Non-Stop Grip (NSG) which aids ball control regardless of weather conditions. When it comes to traction you have the X-CLAW system sitting on the exoframe soleplate which is designed to offer grip on either artificial or firm ground pitches.
