It’s fan-service of the highest order, but you don’t hear us complaining: adidas have brought K-Leather back into their football boots for a limited time with the Pure Leather Pack, and one boot that’s sure to please is the adidas f50 adizero Pure Leather.
After using various leathers since it’s 2010 debut including calf, Goleo and Hybridtouch synthetic, adidas have finally brought the don of football boot materials to their highly-lauded speed cleats.
Using premium K-Leather for the upper, adidas have stripped back some of the ‘tech’ on all three football boots in the Pure Leather Pack, and the adidas f50 adizero is no exception.
By definition, the adizero’s hallmark enhancement is it’s superlight microfibre upper, so adidas have replaced that to focus on comfort and touch.
Additionally, the Speedfoil rear material also makes way for more K-leather, creating a more forgiving heel section than the ‘standard’ model.
More notably, adidas have brought across some ‘deco’ stitching to the forefoot area in an aim to give the same level of ‘lockdown’ and minimal stretching that the f50 hangs it’s hat on.
Expert boot spotters might also note that this style of stitching is remarkably similar to the style used on some professional’s football boots – with the adidas f50 adizero Pure Leather looking more like Leo Messi’s custom version than any model before.
A boot normally notoriously colourful, the adidas f50 adizero Pure Leather brings the class factor in a big way, with black leather punctuated by the iconic white Three Stripes.
Gold call-outs for the leathermark on the heel and insole tidy up the package with some very smart detailing, but otherwise these are as close to a monochrome adidas f50 adizero as you’ll get without touching miadidas.
