adidas X 16.1 Leather "Black/Shock Pink/Blue"

Leather joins laces and laceless options as adidas complete the full 'Blue Blast' collection. With the dust settling from said blast, a darker cloud of ash descends on the X 16.1 silo as the blue is submerged in black.

The Three Stripes are covering all bases this season when it comes to player choice, and the "Black/Shock Pink/Blue" leather edition offers players a safer, more traditional feel on the lightweight speed silo. The 'Blue Blast' aesthetics take a back seat towards the rear, heel and soleplate of the boot, while a "Shock Pink" adidas performance logo provides the finishing detail. Lashing of leather provide the points of contact with the ball.

Some description

Adidas will of course focus efforts on the ACE 17+ Purecontrol and X 16+ Purechaos on pitch, but a number of their professional players who prefer the softer leather touch will slip into this colourway – Thomas Muller and David Silva to name just a couple. Laces and leather? It's a blue blast from the past. Understated but never underrated.
