Dark clouds sprawl across the stadium skyline as a rumble of thunder brings the latest adidas football boot collection. Bringing it with a boom adidas roll out the 'Thunderstorm' collection as the Nemeziz 17+ 360 Agility, ACE 17+ Purecontrol and X 17+ Purespeed wave goodbye to summer with moody designs.

The forecast has been pretty rough this summer at adidas HQ. We've already seen off a Dust Storm, Magnetic Storm and Ocean Storm, and now we've battened down the hatches once more as the Thunder Storm sweeps into town. A darkened collection welcomes in the Autumnal nights, and it's low-key design is mirrored by the fact that adidas won't supply the Thunderstorm collection to their contracted athletes; they'll remain in the the Ocean Storm pack.


The ACE 17+ Purecontrol and Nemeziz 17+ 360 Agility come out of the same wardrobe with navy uppers and turquoise soleplates which hold on to the previous Ocean Storm colour combination. A modest duo with lightening bolts subtly scattered across the upper. The X 17+ Purespeed puts on it's own electric show with more lightening graphics flashing across that dark green uninterrupted upper.
