adidas adizero F50 Leather Football Boots - Black/Blue

Speed boots are typically bright, eccentric and designed to stand out but adidas continue to acknowledge the demand for a more low key style by releasing a leather, almost blackout version of their new generation adizero F50.

The black/blue F50 is wrapped in soft Taurus leather on the front of the boot to offer a more natural ball feel. The SPEEDFOIL on the back of the synthetic editions is replaced by a lightweight, perforated synthetic leather to finish off a more heritage-esque design.

The leather aspects on the boot have added an extra few grams to the overall weight, but at just 185g it's hardly noticeable and for players who prefer a leather feel then it's a sacrifice they'd be more than happy to make.

As with thewhite/solar slime versions it's unlikely that adidas' contracted players will wear the boot on pitch but for players who have been previously put off by the fruitier colourways it offers them the perfect chance to wear the lightest boot possible.

Dashes of blue follow the famous three stripes along the sides of the boot to match the studs and tongue detail and orange laces add a spice of colour, but can easily be replaced by blue or black laces to complete a more toned down vibe.

The new black/blue adidas adizero F50 football boots are available from selected stockists including Pro-Direct Soccer. What do you think of the new colourway? Let us know. Join the conversation online, on Twitter and on Facebook.
