We're tipping this as the underdog for boot of the year. K-Leather, lightweight speed boot, black and white design, we're struggling to find a box unticked with the Pure Leather adidas F50.

The K-Leather F50 is coming off the bench in the last minute of stoppage time and straight into the running for, whisper it quietly, the hottest release of 2014. Landing as one third of the latest and final adidas collection of the year there's something delicately and beautifully understated about the Pure Leather F50 that will make it appeal to boot purists and innovation heads alike.

Black speed boots are always a winning formula and combing that with the softest leather available was the crowd pleaser ordered to cap off a fine year for the Three Stripes. Tech-wise you're looking at perforated leather in the heel for reduced weight plus an undeniably premium look. So, it's an 11Pro right? Wrong, the Pure Leather F50 is 
engineered with deco stitching for a locked-down effect during sprinting. It's a Ferrari with the interior of a Roman Abramovich yacht, it's a supermodel girlfriend with a personality, the sort that brings you beer and plays FIFA with you in her underwear. The only thing wrong with them? The little beauties are limited edition, 500 pairs to be precise. Snap 'em up fast folks...

The adidas F50 Pure Leather is available now from selected adidas stockists including Pro-Direct Soccer. Thoughts? Drop us a line in the comments below.
