Since launch, the adizero miCoach football boots have been released in a myriad of unique colourways, and as the boot landscape changes to a point where any colour and design is now acceptable, we think these new White/Lime/Onix versions get the blend of classic and modern just right...
Released to support the Red/White/Blue lead f50 colourway for the European Championships, adidas have served up another eye-catching boot which despite being predominantly white and black (okay onix!), really stands-out courtesy of the lime colour.
We've seen every colour imaginable hit the adidas f50 range over the years, but when it comes to white colourways, the choices are limited. The new White/Lime/Onix offers a variation to the White/Energy/Black adizero miCoach football boots as a clean alternative to some of the more extravagant designs.
The new White/Lime/Onix adidas f50 football boots will be outnumbered on pitch by adidas' lead colourway – the Red/White/Blue, which we imagine will be worn by the likes of David Silva, Ashley Young and Arjen Robben, but perhaps this colourway would be more suitable for Lukas Podolski and Karim Benzema. Either way, we're looking forward to seeing how the new boots look in action over the coming weeks!
The introduction of miCoach technology has changed the boot game. By delivering precise information direct to your computer, the chip allows you to track and upload performance data including speed, max speed, number of sprints, distance, and distance a high intensity levels. Using 360 degree movement, the on board memory stores all of your stats during a game for up to seven hours.
The construction of the adidas F50 adizero miCoach soccer shoes is built around three key features – Sprintskin, Sprintframe and the all new Sprintweb. The newly introduced Sprintweb – highlighted on these versions in the Energy colour, is an advancement on the TPU Bottom Frame from the previous adizero Prime. The Sprintweb offers increased lateral stability and support, especially across the midfoot, to transfer the forces from the outsole to the upper.
The adiLite Twin material is retained for the 'Sprintskin' upper, as it's been a hugely successful single-layer synthetic which reduces weight and gives improved ball feel. For this new generation of the adizero, the upper has been given a more textured finish to improve ball control and touch.
The 'Sprintframe' outsole is still a revolutionary one-piece chassis; thin, flexible and lightweight, the 'Sprintframe' is the main source of the adizero's speed. Retaining the heel support, the Speed Cell cavity adds to the rigidity you need in the mid-foot area, whilst there is still plenty of flex where needed.
The new White/Lime/Onix adizero f50 miCoach football boots will be available from June 1st and will retail worldwide for around £155 GBP / €180 EURO / $200 USD. Alternatively you can purchase the bundle including the miCoach Speed Cell for £205 GBP / €240 EURO / $270 USD.
