While a lot of people may still be miffed about the exclusion of K-Leather on the adiPure 11Pro, we have to admit that adidas are rolling out some fine looking colour ways onto the boot! Fresh from the predominantly white adiPure 11Pro that was released at the start of the season, adidas have backed it up with a nasty Black/Infared colour way that we think looks very, very clean.
While heritage boots are the one place where you do not tend to see experimental colour ways, but adidas have gone against the grain a little bit with this colour way. Black football boots are nothing new, but adidas have ever-so-slightly changed things up with the addition of infared. We think that it gives the boot a nice modern zing that makes it obvious that this is not your average, conservative run of the mill leather boot!
The change of upper has seen the adiPure 11pro ditch the shackles of being a standard ‘heritage’ boot. The adiPure 11Pro features an ultrasoft Taurus leather upper that has been made famous by the Predator range. This is aided by an ultra thin coating to protect the main kicking areas, which is known as DuraCoating.
The 360° Support Saddle is perhaps the most revolutionary piece of technology in the new adiPure 11Pro. It’s a fully enginereed, ultra-thin, anatomically shaped saddle which has been welded into the three stripes onto the instep of the boot. This is said to aid midfoot stability. The adiPure 11Pro also comes with MiCoach compatibility.
When combined with the Traxion SprintFrame, the weight is further decreased and adidas have said to have found the perfect balance between stability and weight. New studs have also been given their debut on the adiPure 11Pro. The new Traxion 2.0 stud configuration aids high energy movement and increases acceleration.
The boots are already on sale at adidas.com, and we will keeping our eyes peeled to see if any pros in Europe take up the new colour way. What do you think of the latest colour way to hit the adiPure 11Pro?
