In what can only be described as a groundbreaking moment in football technology, adidas introduces the X Crazyfast+ STRUNG. This latest boot innovation, originally inspired by the world of running, is set to redefine the soccer landscape with its unparalleled upper technology.
Football is a game that never stands still, both in the dizzying pace on the field and the relentless evolution of performance technology. adidas, always at the forefront of innovation, has looked to its running heritage for inspiration. Much like the transition of Boost technology into football, adidas now brings us Strung, making its stunning debut in the soccer world through the X Crazyfast+ STRUNG.
First seen in the adidas Futurecraft Strung running shoes back in October 2020, Strung is a revolutionary approach to crafting textile uppers. This innovative technique diverges from traditional woven or knitted materials, using a composite of yarns, each coded and meticulously placed by advanced robotic machinery. This process results in a fabric precisely positioned without any wastage. The design combines thousands of precision-engineered threads to sculpt a seamless, ultra-lightweight upper that envelops the foot like never before. The meticulous placement of stronger red threads in areas like the heel, midfoot, and toe-box ensures a snug fit and robust support, while softer yellow threads in the forefoot allow for greater flexibility.
This cutting-edge upper seamlessly integrates with the X Crazyfast’s SPEEDFRAME and AEROPLATE technologies, enhancing dynamic movement and agility at top speed. The result? A pair of cleats unlike any other, fine-tuned for optimum performance with precision that far surpasses current boot technologies. Well, that is the idea anyway, testing them is where we get those answers.
The buzz around the X Crazyfast+ STRUNG is already in full swing, with players like Federico Di Marco, Ferran Torres, and a host of rising stars across Europe already lacing up in pairs.
