adidas Ace 16.1 Primeknit Released

Ace16 Primeknit Up Close

adidas continue to dazzle the market with revolutionary new releases, today’s introduction of ACE 16.1 PRIMEKNIT providing a completely new level of performance. For the first time, Primeknit covers the whole upper of the boot for total 360 degree control allowing players to boss everyone, with every touch, every part of the boot. The 3D knit structure gives unparalleled fit and grip. Specially engineered knit zones across the upper combine loose and tight formed knits to fit snugly to the unique shape of a player’s foot, enabling perfect ball control.

In order to make it work, a brand new internal knit support system extends up to the ankle collar for a sock-like fit that streamlines the boot’s connection to the foot, so players can boss the field with confidence. The enhanced sprint frame construction delivers the perfect balance and control, on and off the ball, while an enlarged heel pocket adds to the next-level comfort of the ACE 16.1 PRIMEKNIT.

Sam Handy, Vice President of Design for adidas Football stated that:

We’re the leaders in football innovation for a reason and that’s easy to see in the ACE 16.1 PRIMEKNIT. We’ve created a boot unlike anything else on the market, a boot that offers unrivalled comfort, support and a new expression of the adidas design DNA. Following the release of the laceless ACE 16+ PURECONTROL it was important for us to add something different to the ACE family and with ACE 16.1 PRIMEKNIT we’ll be improving the performance of footballers everywhere.

In case you missed it, 2016 has already seen adidas make its mark with the ground-breaking release of the ACE 16+ PURECONTROL, the world’s first high performance laceless boot. The Ace19+ Primeknit adds some laces but offersthe same style of performance. We already know these boots are ready for action, with Morgan Schneiderlin and Manuel Neuer giving us a first look (below). ACE 16.1 PRIMEKNIT is set to start bossing pitches everywhere from January 30th.
