Adidas are whipping up a Dust Storm and sending it towards Cardiff on Saturday night as they launch their next-generation X 17 boot ahead of the 2017 Champions League Final in the Welsh capital. Dropping as part of the final collection of the season the X 17 will be worn for the first time when Real Madrid take on Juventus this weekend.

We've already been introduced to the Nemeziz 17+ 360 Agility and now adidas have bolstered their 'Dust Storm' collection with the addition of a next-gen X 17 and a "White/Black/Yellow" ACE 17+ Purecontrol colourway. The X silo receives a new generation design almost exactly a year since the boot launched ahead of the 2016 European Championships, and with it comes a few subtle tech updates.

Arriving in a striking grey and turquoise colourway, the X 17 once again features a lace cover with Non Stop Grip technology for increased ball control and Purecut Sock System for added compression. Elsewhere, the SprintFrame soleplate is retained from the previous generation and oversized 'X' branding comes into play on the instep of the boot. The X 17.1 edition without lace cover also forms part of the 'Dust Storm' collection, along with a cage version for small-sided football.

Player wise, you'll be looking at the likes of Karim Benzema, Alvaro Morata, Gareth Bale and Juan Cuadrado in the adidas X 17 come Saturday night. A brand new Nemeziz silo, updated X 17 generation, and two adidas clubs going head to head for European football's biggest prize; that's as strong a way as any to see the season out.
