WHEN YOU MOVE AT THE SPEED OF LIGHT ITS IMPOSSIBLE TO BE SECOND TO ANYTHING
The Adidas Speed of Light 16+ boots are available to pre-order in our Grafton Street store today and will hit stores with the rest of the Speed Of Light pack on Friday July 15th.
The Adidas 16+ boots were last seen dominating the pitches in France with the chrome coloured Mercury Pack. This time the brand are bringing you the primary colours of light in a bold tonal style with the Speed Of Light pack.
X16+ PureChaos: The Gamechanger
UNIQUE TECHFIT UPPER
PureChaos is made with a Techfit compression upper, which shapes perfectly around your foot, from the very first step. This gives a tight and individual fit, which offers incredible comfort, while also minimizing the time you need to break-in the boots. As something completely new, the PureChaos is designed with adidas’ Purecut Sock system, which hides the laces. This will give a secure and clean touch and a larger striking surface. The Purecut Sock System also ensures that you get the extra support you need. Because of this, your feet are offered the best possible condition to perform, at explosive speeds. The upper is coated with a thin layer of adidas’ unique NGS-technology. NGS stands for Non-Stop Grip and is small 3D dots that gives extra grip and full control of the ball in all weather conditions.
PureChaos is equipped with a re-designed edition of the adidas Sprintframe. The original Sprintframe outsole was featured on the adidas F50, where the low profile kept you close to the pitch for optimal grip. What makes this outsole so popular is its lightness and the flexibility, that provides both support and stability. This is especially important when making quick turns, rapid changes in directions and speed. The studs continues being a hybrid between FG and AG, allowing you to use the boot on several different pitches.
ACE 16+ PureControl: Control everything
PureControl is designed without laces, and is made from a woven material that shapes to fit your feet. This brings you closer to the ball than ever before, and helps you get a perfect first touch and extraordinary control. Especially developed Primeknit zones allows the upper to flex and fit tight on your feet, providing a sock like fit. adidas has even coated the zones with an ultra thin layer of synthetic material. This coating provides a soft touch and excellent control, in all weather conditions.
The Primecut silhouette ensures the perfect fit, stability and comfort. The Primecut technology works by improving the contact between you ankle and boot. The three iconic adidas stripes on the side act like an external skeleton, providing added lockdown and stability, especially to the midfoot and the heel. The boot is designed with a woven Techfit support system, that is placed inside the boot. It heightens the level of dynamic support for the midfoot. When making quick turns and rapid twists, your feet are exposed to both lateral and horizontal forces. The Techfit support system counteracts these and locks you down, making the boot feel like a part of you.
Messi 16+ PureAgility: Create impossible
PureAgility is made with a Agilityknit upper, which shapes perfectly around your foot. This gives a tight and individual fit, which minimizes the time you need to break-in the boots. The upper is deliberately designed to be as thin as possible, to create a very responsive touch. Every movement you make, is transferred directly to the ball. The PureAgility is designed with adidas’ Purecut Sock system, which hides the laces. This will secure a clean touch and provide a larger striking surface. The Purecut Sock System also ensures that you get the extra support you need. With this, your feet are offered the best possible condition to perform at explosive speeds
MESSI DESIGNED HEEL COUNTER
The PureAgility heel construction ensures that the boot is kept locked onto your foot, securing you for full control and confidence when making swift changes of direction, something Messi specifically demanded when designing the boot. This allows a dynamic and agile style of play, while providing you with all the support needed. The specially woven piece by the Achilles tendon is called the Midcut. The Midcut gives you a superior stability and freedom to play.
