If you are an adidas Nemeziz 17+ 360Agility fan, an exclusive new Solar Yellow colorway has been released. Graced with a highlighter Solar Yellow upper, this is a design intended to match the “Supernatural Agility” theme of the silo. By exclusive, this is a colorway you will only find available at a select number of retailers, as adidas looks to diversify their market availability. For players that want to really stand out, they are a definite top option and one that completely contradicts the recent stealth black colorway that was recently released.
For those of you that are new to the Nemeziz series, this is a boot that takes performance to a while new level. adidas has employed a completely new mix of materials and construction techniques to create a boot that focuses on agility and natural fit. Below, you will find the important details and characteristics you need to know about them.
One place you can find them right now is at soccer.com.
These boots are built on the ideals of bandages and unparalleled agility. To design the ultimate tool for the agile soccer player, adidas tapped into a common ritual in ancient battle, in dance and in sport: the use of taping for increased physical and mental strength. The unique AGILITYBANDAGE features revolutionary TORSIONTAPES technology to keep the foot locked down and deliver ultimate fit. It starts around the ankle, where pieces are layered across each other to create an entry point. This runs through the lacing system and down to the touch and control region of the boot. And that is where you will find the second piece of the jigsaw, with a new AGILITYKNIT 2.0 interlocking yarn structure provides a soft direct touch and a lightweight adaptable feel. This the region around the very front of the boot. Across that portion, adidas has covered the AGILITYKNIT with a super thin synthetic layer to provide durability and enhance the texturing through the region. It ends up have a very bumpy feel that helps add grip and improve touch on the ball.
How do they Fit?
Being that they are laceless you won’t be surprised to hear that the fit is naturally very snug across your foot; it has to be. But, because the material is like a bandage, it has ample room to stretch. Of all boots on the market, this is the one that will offer the best fit across different foot shapes. My medium/wide foot was very comfortable inside and there were no pressure points. In fact, they feel a lot like you are wearing a pair of tight slippers and they make for one of the most natural fitting boots you will ever wear. In terms of length they are true to size, very much in the mold of other adidas boots such as the Purechaos and Purecontrol.
Basically, when it comes to fit you have to know going into wearing that it is a laceless boot with a very snug fit to keep them on your feet. This is not like a Totti Tiempo Legend that you can open the laces on, pull down the tongue and run loose on your feet. Compared to all laceless boots released to date, these provide the most natural feel thanks to the incredible stretch properties in the upper material, so there is definitely optimism for wider fitting players that want to give them a shot. But again, they are intended to fit snug!

Laced vs Laceless Nemeziz
I’m going to break this one down in its own post. But, in short, there actually isn’t a great deal different between both. I found the Nemeziz 17+ fit very snugly and never one felt like they were going to slip off. adidas has created an excellent fit. The Nemeziz 17.1 offers you the ability to be able to secure an even tighter fit across the top of your foot, allowing you to dictate the level of pressure between boot and foot. So, realistically it all depends on exactly what you are looking for!
Given that they are more of an exclusive release, the number of available pairs is substantially less than other boots in the silo released to date. It is important, however, to note that this is not a limited edition release. Even so, you will need to fork out $300 to reserve a pair.
