adidas Ace 16.1 Leather Soccer Cleats

The preferred cleat choice of the likes of classy soccer players Xabi Alonso, Philipp Lahm, and Morgan Scheiderlin the Ace 16.1 Leather offers a level of traditionalism upon an otherwise innovative cleat through its supple K-Leather upper across the toe-box yet maintianing a lightweight construction.

Ace 16.1 Leather Cleat

While the quality of K-Leather has seen an increased level of quality, reflective through its aesthetic creasing, the weight of the Ace 16.1 Leather has reduced from its predecessor from the addition of a mesh tongue and re-designed sole plate stripping excess mass from the cleat.

The Ace 16.1 Leather opts for the combination of a supple leather across the toe-box for touching and striking the ball, before switching to a soft synthetic across the side panels to prolong the natural structure of the cleat. To aid the protection at the back of a player's heel an external heel-counter extends from the sole plate to the back of the cleat which also increases lock-down of the foot.
