Alvaro Morata Trains in Blackout adidas Boots

Chelsea forward Alvaro Morata has joined the ever-growing list of players to have been spotted wearing the latest innovation from adidas as he trained this week in the laceless blackout boot from the Three Stripes.

Numerous players have now been seeded the blackout silo signalling a release is imminent. Dele Alli, Fernando Llorente, Mats Hummels and Ivan Rakatic are some of the names we've seen training in the unreleased adidas football boots in recent weeks. All household names who represent adidas on the global stage, some wearing the laceless edition Morata is sporting here, and some wearing a laced version.


The boot are expected to release later this year as adidas set their sights on Russia 2018, a World Cup year that gives them the perfect platform to showcase their new innovations. The future silhouette features prominent grooves on the instep and forefoot to suggest adidas are giving the boots a control focus. Obvious cues have been taken from the ACE 17+, with a knitted collar design. The identity of the silo is currently being kept under-wraps by the Three Stripes, but with a landmark year approaching, anything goes. 


What we do know is that Morata is an avid boot collector, and was keen to snap up the limited edition adidas Predator Mania and adidas Predator Accelerator earlier this year as adidas turned on their special edition charm. The blackout silhouette features clear shooting/control technology on the upper, drawing comparisons to the Predator series. The next generation of adidas Football is close.
