From Chrome to Ice Cold, Adidas has released a new set of clean White colorways in theAce15 and X15 silos. Both boots feature a primary white upper with some metallic silver detailing to complete an icy look. On the X15, you will find the silver covering the reinforced X-Cage, while on the Ace15 it runs through the heel. Underfoot on the Ace15, things take a fiery red turn on each of the studs. It adds some dramatic pop to the soleplate.
Initial reaction to the releases has been extremely positive and it seems like adidas has hit a soft spot with fans. This is the sort of pack that comes with the understanding white scuffs pretty easily, but that hasn’t deterred fan reaction to date.
The adidas Ace15.1 is the boot that impresses us most of the new 2015 collection. Why? Because they opitomize everything you need in a boot. The upper is comfortable with an accommodating fit, they feature a soleplate and traction system that can adapt to multiple surfaces, and the upper provides a clean touch on the ball. Adidas has produced a final product that goes against player expectation and is advertised as a top performer for any style of attacking player. But don’t let that define the boot; Petr Cech, Leighton Baines and David de Gea are just some of the defensive style players currently wearing the boot. Realistically, they just make sense for both type of players.
The adidas X15.1 features several technical innovations, which all feature the letter X. There’s the reinforced X-Cage designed to keep the balance between a lightweight boot and one which offers the support a player needs on the pitch. The boot also features the X-Skin synthetic upper which offers up a veritable triple threat of softness, fit, and ball grip, as the upper is the beneficiary of a treatment known as Non-Stop Grip (NSG) which aids ball control regardless of weather conditions. When it comes to traction you have the X-CLAW system sitting on the exoframe soleplate which is designed to offer grip on either artificial or firm ground pitches.
