Adidas have pulled out two new color releases in the F50 adizero range. Both releases come in a synthetic upper – one an Intense Green/Fresh Pink/Black and the other a Lightning White/Lightning White/Cyan.
Both releases have their own unique looks. Over the weekend, we got to see the Intense Green version in action, with Gareth Bale sporting them for Spurs in their game with Manchester United. They definitely stood out on the field, although I felt that they clashed with the Spurs kit. It would be interesting to see how they look with a green kit, like the Irish national team kit for example.
The Lightning White version are, well, extremely white! I can imagine that they are going to be tough to keep clean, but there is no doubt that they will match the majority of kits out there and I personally think they look pretty slick.One thing to note is that the 3 stripes on the side of the boot almost have a metallic look and will slightly reflect whatever colors are around.
The synthetic version weighs in as the lightest of the range at 5.8oz. I was highly skeptical going into testing them, but all I have are positives to report about the adizero. The look good on, and feel pretty good to wear. Compared to the Leather version, the synthetics do fit slightly larger out of the box. One issue with the F50 adizero has been the recent case of studs breaking off – something to bear in mind if you are going to buy a pair.
