adidas Launch The X 18+ "Cold Mode"

The faster players out there will know the importance of retaining sensation in your toes for sprinting in the colder months, and adidas have the solution with the X 18+ “Cold Mode”.

Featuring PrimaLoft technology to not only keep your feet warm, but dry also, the latest X 18+ arrives for the winter months looking the part with a colour combination of “Raw Green/Night Cargo/Clear Mint”. The speckled effect heel is interrupted by a spike of green that runs down from the forefoot on a soleplate that remains untouched.


The only real change here is the PrimaLoft insulation, and it's quite a significant one. The PrimaLoft tech comes with the approval of the US army, who initially requested a water-resistant material that provided enhanced warmth without the bulk, for efficient insulation with better breathability.

You’d be forgiven for thinking that all of this in a football boot would significantly alter its look and performance, but it doesn’t, and the X 18+ still looks as sleek as ever. Along with the assurance you'll be able to feel your toes this winter, and this innovation breakthrough has to be a winner.


For those that favour laces, the 18.1 is also available as part of the "Cold Mode" pack, along with respective versions of the Predator 18 and Nemeziz 18 series. The only thing stopping the "Cold Mode" pack being fully winter equipped is that adidas are only releasing the collection in FG...
