Mo Salah Trains in Next-Gen adidas X 18+ Boots

Mo Salah's incredible debut season for Liverpool has seen him muscle his way into adidas' leading player stable for the 2018 World Cup. The Egyptian forward has been training in his Russia wheels this morning as he switched into the next-generation X 18+ boots.

Fit for an Egyptian King, the laceless X 18+ is set for launch ahead of the summer showpiece, and Salah joins the growing number of adidas players spotted in the blackout silo this month after switching into the design at Melwood today. Scroll down and see how much fun it is to be Mo Salah right now. Look at his little bearded goalscoring face. Just look at it.


It's been a busy month of adidas preparations as the next-generation Nemeziz 18+ has also been dished out to players, including Liverpool's Roberto Firmino.

The X 18 will remain in a blackout coat until adidas launch the update around the UCL Final in late May. Tech wise, it's a dramatic shift from the current X 17 edition with the sleeker, laceless silhouette using a clean one-piece mesh/synthetic upper. The return of the Three Stripes on the outstep of the boot will be a welcomed addition, and gives the X 18 a next-gen F50 adizero vibe.


Stay tuned for more on the next-generation adidas X 18+ football boots...
