For those in need of some retro speed, adidas has released a very iconic, limited-edition adidas F50 Adizero IV. If they look familiar, it is because they feature the same chevron-style print originally found on the 2014 Battle Pack collection. This pair is set to be a signature Mo Salah release, as part of the “Prepare For Battle” pack.
What makes them even better is the fact they feature a one-to-one recreation of their super-lightweight HybridTouch upper. It all sits on a cutting-edge X Speedflow outsole, complete with Carbitex carbon-fiber plate and raised forefoot. So, you get that same upper feel and touch on the ball with modern tooling underfoot for maximin traction.
One important note here; we are assuming “released” on this one…..or at least prepared for release? As of this evening, all pairs are listed as sold out. But there was no official market drop, making me think this is more of a placeholder before they actually become available.
So, if you were seriously looking to secure a pair, don’t panic just yet. I imagine more pairs will become available on adidas.com, while other retailers like SOCCER.com will have a selection on offer soon! Watch this space.
