Fresh off the release of the new Adidas F50 adiZero Prime comes this new colorway in the F50 adiZero series. Personally, this latest version is a little too bright, although I have been a fan of silver colored boots in the past. The official color is Chrome/Black/Warning and the synthetic upper is definitely going to stand out at night under lights (it almost has a mirror like finish!) The release is currently on sale for $169.99.
The actual design of this release differs vastly from the initial adiZero roll-out. The biggest difference lies in the detailing, with Adidas adding a staggered layer of orange color down along the front of the boot. This drops down from the laces to where the sole and upper meet. The upper is also lined with a silver zig-zag type pattern that you can easily see when you hold the boots up close, adding an extra element of detail. If you recall, on the previous release Adidas had placed a similar pattern to the Grip n’Groove seen on the Jabulani ball, which has been removed.
The signature Adidas stripes have also been modified along the side of the boot to finish of what is a very modern look. Rather than running right along the boot, Adidas have cut them shorter and angled them slightly down. You will also now find 3 striped on the instep of the boot (there was an Adidas logo here on the previous design). Overall, I personally like the design changes that Adidas have made – although I am not fond of the silver/orange colors used.
With the release of the new adiZero prime, it is going to be extremely interesting to see what reaction this new colorway gets. I personally found that the F50 adiZero performed extremely well on field although I do have a preference for the leather upper over synthetic. Weighing in at 6.0oz, this boot is designed for speed and offers great value compared to the other lightweight boots on the market.
What is your verdict on this colorway?
