adidas ACE15 football boot, created for the controlling footballer. The player who keeps the team ticking. The playmaker.
Having retired four of their boot ranges, adidas have slimmed down to just two silos, the ACE and the X.
The first version of the ACE is the ACE15 football boot. This boot is aimed at the playmaker who dominates the entire game. The footballer who expects perfect ball handling, perfect fit, perfect stability, total 360° control. These are the players who orchestrate and control everything.
adidas ACE15 Features: The ACE15 is built for control and its features highlight this;
CTRL/WEB – featured on the upper of the ACE15. This is a revolutionary 3D material that combines breathability and protection in a unique way while a grippy EVA layer enhances ball control.
Ground Control – This is the groundbreaking stud configuration that enables players to put more studs on the ball allowing far more control on the ball, like during foot-over type moves. Stud configuration lowers stud height for control on firm ground and artificial ground.
NSG (Non Stop Grip) – The ACE15 features 3D raised grip dots which offer non stop grip in all weather conditions.
Heel Stabiliser – A new heel fit that perfectly wraps around your foot so your foot stays in place.
Players: Mesut Özil, James Rodríguez, Oscar, Manuel Neuer and Ivan Rakitić
First Wear: UEFA Champions League Final in Berlin on Saturday 6th June

ACE or X. Which boot is for you?
What do you think about adidas retiring four popular boots and replacing it with two, the ACE and X?
We want to hear your views, let us know below…
I absolutely hate it that adidas stopped with predator. There is so nastalgia with in that boot. But i also think adidas has messed up the whole predator brand since they introduced the predator LZ.
well first of all, they are aesthetically hideous. with that out of the way, the upper looks interesting, taking an idea Warrior had with the Gambler boot I think it was. that being said, I am extremely skeptical about the soleplate – are that many studs necessary? might be hard to get used to, or even be a nuisance. also, the heel counter has a weird u-shape. all in all, hopefully you guys can review both these boots – and see if killing off four silos was worth it.
I like the bold idea in going with just two silos. I think it paves the way for a predator limited edition predator release in the future (hopefully with a big elastic tongue!)… Need a new colourway! White/blue maybe. All black for this boot and all white for the X would have looked smart. Can’t see these soleplates being much use to anyone this isn’t playing on an elite level pitch though….. #stickymud
