Blacker than the Ace of Spades. The ACE 16.1 Primeknit is sent spinning into a "Dark Space" orbit as adidas bring the 16.1 collection in line with their latest Purecontrol line. Tall, dark and handsome, these.

They may not feature on-pitch on the professional scene but that only adds to the type of cool factor that only blackout boots possess. There's an unspoken respect for turning up on a Saturday afternoon with a pair of crisp black, minimally branded football boots and they don't come much sleeker than the ACE 16.1 complete with Primeknit ankle-cut. The most controlled shot in the dark you'll ever take.

Some description

Tech-wise the boots remain unchanged, featuring the same elements as previous colourways. A Primeknit texture is weaved across the complete upper of the boot - the first time the technology has been applied to 360 degrees of a boot in such a way - while a 'knit support system' creeps up to the ankle collar to grab that streamlined edge. An application of adidas' Non-Stop Grip (NSG) technology is also applied to the upper to bring the control the silo is built for. Set for stealth, the "Dark Space" is total off-radar style.
