After clocking Xabi Alonso in one adidas Prototype last month, another football boot that’s in the works seems to be entering testing – under the working title ‘adidas Chaos’.
Fellow Bayern Munich star Pierre Emile Hojbjerg was the man doing the testing yesterday as the Danish national team warmed up for their friendly with Albania.
The young midfielder was snapped leaving the training pitch in a very interesting pair of black-out football boots which, thanks to the lighting being just right, we were able to get a good look at.
As mentioned, these prototypes are operating under the working title adidas Chaos and are scheduled for release late in 2015. Why are adidas commencing player testing so early?
Well, rumour has it that these football boots are going to be the start of some radical changes in the way adidas create their football boots.
The adidas Chaos will use a revolutionary upper design, made of an entirely new synthetic material and production process.
We’re expecting the adidas Chaos to have a soft-touch upper material, with the firmer ‘modules’ you can see up the side of the boot creating the more technical ‘zones’ of the boot.
Another major talking point is that the adidas Chaos football boots are set to be the first adidas soccer cleats with a mid/high top design, aligning them as a direct competitor to the Nike Superfly and Magista.
But where do the adidas Chaos fit in to the current stable of adidas football boots?
Well, we’re not sure yet – Hojbjerg is traditionally an adidas f50 player, but has been flitting in and out of the Nitrocharge, too – meaning that just about any of adidas’ boots could soon be succeeded by the new adidas Chaos!
