About this deal

Layered with a TPU coating, giving a tactile touch on the ball, gripping to the boot no matter the speed. New with box: A brand-new, unused, unworn and undamaged item in its original packaging (such as the . softground boots in solar solar slime colourway, these feature a ultra-lightweight design a sprinter's secret weapon, the raised forefoot prepares you for flight. If the upper becomes a little more accommodating and softer, as well giving us more lockdown and adjustability, I think adidas could possibly take the fight to Nike. In some ways this is a great thing as I have argued previously that brands should do more with synthetic uppers.

As with many modern speed boots, the key element is the soleplate, which has seen multiple revisions over the years, refining the setup to produce the best combination of support for balance and snapback for acceleration. He mentioned in his review that he got used to shooting with the boots quite quickly, I didn’t really notice anything at all. The upper is smoother than other boots on the market and some have suggested this is something you need to get used to however, I never had any issues with controlling the in spite of the fact adi didn’t make the upper rougher, as has been the norm with a lot of recent boots. Stability System Generative stud design assists in multidirectional movements and optimises traction to maximise acceleration.Bringing raw pace to the pitch since 2015, the X was first introduced with the intention of “causing chaos” in the final third, enabling attackers to disrupt defences with explosive play. The forward arrived at the Etihad on a five-year deal from Valencia, inheriting the number 21 shirt from City legend David Silva who left for Real Sociedad at the end of the season prior.

The studs themselves are also very solid and I especially like the inclusion of vertical studs along with the more triangular studs because it means you get support and grip when cutting and jutting across the pitch.Whichever boot suits your style, whether you like to lace up or go laceless, you’ll find options available for every type of surface and every level of play.

Nowadays, it’s an all-round speed boot that you’re as likely to see on superfast full backs as centre forwards, offering a mix of lightweight stability, comfort, and a precision touch on the ball. Then again, given that the X Ghosted+ was mostly likely designed first, it might have been just an afterthought. The "Ghosted" name is inspired by the boots' lightweight design and low-profile silhouette, The boots also have a unique design that sets them apart from traditional football boots, making them popular among players who want to stand out on the pitch. The 3-Stripes’ pioneering outlook has seen them remain at the forefront of boot design ever since founder Adi Dassler first started making footwear in the 1920s. It can be argued that the carbon fibre wouldn’t work as well without the curved toe, so the combination of the two provides for excellent performance.There weren’t any issues while I dribbled with the ball, I did find myself wishing that the upper was rougher and grippier to the touch.

This obviously improved after a few sessions in the boots, but I was hoping it was a softer out of the box. You will always be aware that you are wearing a speed boot with a synthetic upper, but this also means that there is nothing in the way of you and the ball. The X Ghosted’s raised forefoot allows for immediate acceleration from a standing start, combining with a springy Carbitex carbon fibre insert in the soleplate and a new, optimised stud pattern to propel you forwards, generating maximum speed in the blink of an eye. Many players will be pleased to hear this as there are surprisingly not a lot of boots on the market like this.Having the slight curve of the soleplate also plays its role well by allowing you to have a better push off from push off. Going into this review I kept telling myself to alter my expectations because I almost always review high quality leather boots and going to a synthetic speed boot will be a different experience and require different expectations.
