A promising mix of old and new blood. The third-generation adidas 11Pro gets back to fundamentals with a classic colourway, premium k-leather upper and a new "skeleton" construction.

We've been fawning over the new adidas 11Pro since seeing them on the feet of Toni Kroos and Xabi Alonso. Now adidas have pulled back the curtains on their third-generation 11Pro silo with an end-of-year revamp that's surely its most significant yet.

True to the boots history, the new 11Pro goes back to its roots and incorporates modern features which adidas boast offer "the most comfortable and premium fit to date.” The all-new design gives the "Black/White/Flash Orange" colourway a twist in character with central colour blocking - something that’s sure to be a dividing feature - while also bringing back memories of the original adiPURE, with a classic black canvas and three white stripes.

Taking another step back to what we loved most about the original adiPURE, the new 11Pro welcomes the return of K-Leather. The super-soft upper is ingrained upon an all-new “engineered support skeleton” across the forefoot and heel that allows the boots to offer an enhanced fit. The skeleton upper allows adidas to remove all stitching on the forefoot of the boot while still offering maximum stability. The new 11Pro will be given its official debut outing this weekend across all major European leagues. We're nodding our head in approval, what about you? Let us know in the comments below.

The new adidas 11pro Black/White/Flash Orange is available to pre-order from today at selected adidas stockists including Pro-Direct Soccer.
