In even more exciting news, it looks like adidas is finally going to release their response to Nike’s Vapor. We had reported a while ago about speculation of an adidas F70 line that was to be similar to the Nike Vapor. Building on the idea of an “ultra light” soccer shoes, it looks like adidas’ newest cleats will be called the adidas F50 adizero.
The F50 adizero will weigh only 5.8 ounces (a full ounce lighter than the Nike Vapor Superfly) and is dubbed the “fastest boot ever made”. The hollow core constructed cleats will be thermobonded to reduce weight and increase durability, but will still feature adidas trademarks such as Sprint Skin, Sprint Frame and Traxion.
We haven’t heard any official word on a release date for these, but we would assume they will be launched in the lead up to the World Cup.
