The other new release in the Adidas F50 adiZero miCoach series comes in this slightly more appealing Black/Electricity/Warning colorway. The colorway is rather unique and it will obviously be pretty easy to spot in-game, although the black primary color does add a more modern and classic look.
I am highlighting the leather version of this release as it offers an alternate for players who want something other than the initial synthetic version released. Something you might have spotted, I say slightly more appealing above simply because the initial High Energy/Electricity has not received as much positive feedback as Adidas probably anticipated. I personally believe that Adidas can do better than this combo they have put together, with the Warning layer that runs around the lip of the upper creating an offset look. But again, I think this version offers a better look than the initial colorway.
When it comes to the technology used in this boot, it pretty much blows the competition away. Basically, miCoach is a highly intelligent chip that sits in the soleplate, Adidas has created a cavity where your miCoach SPEED_CELL chip sits. Once inserted and you are in-play, the chip tracks several key performance categories including speed, maximum speed, number of sprints, distance, distance at high intensity levels and time. After playing your game, you take the chip out and upload the data for review. It is that simple!
At 6oz, the leather version is slightly heavier than the synthetic version, which is 5.8oz. Realistically, this number is very minute and should not be a factor. The introduction of SprintWeb, a distinct 3-D textured design that runs across the top of your toes offers the most distinctive upgrade with this latest adiZero release. The SprintFrame soleplate has also been modified with the stud configuration altered to improve traction.
