adidas has once again raised the bar in the world of soccer cleats with the introduction of the X Crazyfast, a boot that embodies the essence of speed and innovation. This latest release comes in three distinct models – the ‘P+‘, and the ‘P1’ in both laced and laceless versions. Each model is packed with cutting-edge ‘AERO’ technologies designed to enhance speed in every aspect of the game.
The P+ model, the lightest in the series, is the epitome of high-performance innovation, designed for the elite players gracing the pitches of the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023TM. This boot was developed with input from a diverse group of contributors, from professional athletes to grassroots players, ensuring its performance benefits are accessible to all.
Complementing the P+ are the X Crazyfast P1 models, both laceless and laced. These boots feature advanced lightweight technologies, making them perfect for footballers at all levels and price points.
“The modern game is centered around speed and quickness to win the ball against your opponent. Players must think fast, and react even faster, which leaves no time for distractions,” says Mahsa Aryan, Global Category Director at adidas Football footwear. “The X franchise, and everything it offers, has therefore become increasingly important considering the modernization and increase in speed of football played today.”
At the heart of the X Crazyfast models is the updated SPEEDFRAME sole plate technology. The new AEROPLATE insert replaces the previous carbon version, making the overall plate 5g lighter. This update offers optimal comfort and responsiveness, while retaining the same design features for propulsion and dynamic movement. The stud design is optimized for traction during rapid acceleration.
The upper of the P1 models features the AEROCAGE innovation, an engineered lining designed for ideal support and stability, and AEROPACITY SPEEDSKIN, a single layer breathable monomesh for comfort and a second skin feel. The P+ model takes this a step further with a super lightweight upper comprised of single layer AEROPACITY SPEEDSKIN+ molded to the minimalistic AEROCAGE+, optimized for lightweight support and stability at high speeds.
Stability and support are paramount in the game of speed. The P1 models feature an engineered PRIMEKNIT collar for foot-hugging comfort and optimal direct ball contact, with the options of laceless, and laced for increased adjustability. The P+ comes in a floating tongue construction with superlight laces to help keep the foot locked in place.
In line with adidas’ commitment to ending plastic waste, all X Crazyfast models contain zero virgin polyester. The X Crazyfast P+ is made with a 15% lower carbon footprint than the previous X SPEEDPORTAL P+ version.
The X Crazyfast boot, in an elegant and minimalistic white and lucid lemon colorway, will make its first major competition appearance on the feet of some of the best female football players at the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023TM. This is not just a boot; it’s a statement of speed, innovation, and commitment to the future of the game.
