  • Wow, I really like the design on these – I’m sure it’ll split opinion but I think it’s a great looking boot. White/Black/Red especially.

    And it’s even better that they’re offering a Leather upper from the getgo!

    I wonder what a second skin is though? More marketing buzzwords?

  • man, i wonder if they will be compatible with all the f50.8 parts….cuz i was going to get the f50.9 CL upper, but ill totally wait for these!

  • How do these differ from the 50.9 out at the minute?

    Apart from a price increase..

    I would not buy the leather ones as they are just the same as adipures..

    No Thanks

  • These look like a massive overhaul of the previous models, which will gather more support i believe.
    I like the look and shape of these, will definitely try em on.

  • that cleat look really beautiful. i only liked the f50.6 and f50.7, but that look really that fit to your feet, and in my opinion, they look like vapors with better lacecover

  • The red and white ones are hands down the best colour way. The price is crazy tough. The resemblance to the adipure is there. To me tunits are a stupid idea. Definately agree that predators are some of the best boots of all time. Still nothing compares to the vapor 3’s.. In red and white of course..

  • those are a classy classy looking boot! best looking adidas boot design ive seen in a while! i like all the colorways, and its nice they got a k-leather one (which is what i presume the other black on is)

    they look like a hybrid of the older f50s, a copa mundial, and a vapor lol (thats probably just me tho)

    “First impressions suggest they lack the impactful, striking design of the F50.8 and the sleek running lines of the F50.9 ”

    really? i find these many times better looking than the previous f50s. i was never interested in the previous versions, but this one interests me quite a bit.

    ive heard allot of negative comments regarding the whole TUNIT system on the past boots, perhaps they made it better for this version? even still, theres always the F30, much cheaper and without the whole interchangeable shenanigans.

    one thing i notice is the shape: the previous versions seemed more wide, this one seems more narrow…probably why i compared the shape a bit to the copa. being as though i have a long narrow foot, id like to give these a try!

  • Yuk, sorry but do not like these boots at all! they look like they have taken a step back in time with these boots! and the shape is ghastly!

  • These boots look a lot less bulky than the previous TUNiTs. The F50.8’s and F50.9’s did not have great ball feel, but these new ones look like the thin upper will make a difference. Plus, the lace cover looks to be in a better place. The synthetic black and vivid blue along with the white looks awesome!

  • Amazing! Finally a boot that looks like it’s for speed… in my opinion…. I believe these will be a great hit.. 100% on BootOmeter

  • i like them especially the withe-black-red.

    will there be a white -black and red version of the leather ones they would be awsome

  • Are you serious..?
    How on earth do they look like predators. Like honestly pay for some glasses if necessary, just say the word. Like I said before, they give me a vapor feelin..

    • yah i agree on the vapor feel to them, like an adidas style vapor….

      thats why i said they look a bit like an older f50/copa mundial/vapor feel….

      i say older f50 cuz of the alls klear or whatever they are calling the see thru heel…

      the shape reminds me of a copa, especially the black k-leather one…

      and they def. look more like a lightweight/speedy boot like the vapors.

      all in all, one of the nicest looking boots ive seen in a while!

      ive heard some people complain about previous itunits and their replaceable studs….perhaps they improved that on these?

      if not, the F30 versions of these will still look just as nice. they just wont have the itunit studs…

      • Im guessing with so much success with the Nike Vapors Adidas needed to come up with a similar design to combat their boot design. So i would say that this is the answer. The f50 range is not so popular like the vapors are. Adidas need this boot 12 months ago. I still believe the best boot is the Predator. These new boots actually look better than the vapors with a nicer lace cover. Cant wait to see all the new color ranges in the coming months. I think adidas are on a winner with these. a BIG winner!! Look out vapor!!

  • The White/Black/Red ones are the nicest in my opinion, but the stars on the side spoils it. Does anyone know the significance of it??

  • chet said: Comment 3 April, 2009 @ 11:23 pm

    they look exactly like the predators

    are you blind chet, they look like vapors, or f50, but they dont look like the predators.

  • Am I the Only one that can see the ugliness in those boots
    they are the worst boots i’ve seen since the kelme shark
    CAN’T ANYBODY SEE THATTTT!

    • i no adidas is 2 good nike are a load of wank look and feel shit i got a pair of nikes and after 2 weeks a threw them in bin and got some f50s which are miles nicer , comfier, klassier and sexier also look better when you play in them
      nike is no con test to adidas

  • These boots are really better looking. I bet these boots are to challenge those mercurial vapours, looking at the shapes. i prefer these to those vapours dudes. Dont know why.

  • WOAH! Nice… but not a fan of F50 series in terms of wearing, but definitely a fan in terms of design.

    This is the best yet… and the overall feel is like vapor but I am biased and think these may be actually better boots!

    Anyway, still very happy in the 4th month of my new adiPures.

  • a step back for the F50 line.

    the f50s are supposed to be the cutting edge, push the envelope, never seen this before type of football boots.

    cant say that about these.

    if ur gonna get these ones, better get the adipures instead. same shape, cheaper price.

  • Sick, for people who cant wear vapors, like me, this is the best boot on the market. Nike always give me blisters no matter how long i wear them.

    So this is really an outcome, they arent as beautiful as the vapors, but at least these come close.

    Def gonna cop the blue ones.

  • I like these new ones , they are all nice boots , i really like the leather ones. Do you no if they will be making the blacked out ones i like black boots and i would like them .

  • I really love the design and the colors. very lovely and you choose my favorite colors. The white, black and blue are colors i love on boots. I wonder where i can buy those. Are they available now on the market?

  • “the f50s are supposed to be the cutting edge, push the envelope, never seen this before type of football boots.”

    i have to agree with the lad’s opinion right there…

    i remember dropping my jaws the first time i saw F50.8’s see through heel section. it’s a worthless and gold idea at the same time.

    the “back to the basic” development should stick with adidas pure. i’d say that F50s are supposed to keep boldly go where no one dares before…

    at least that’s what i thought. meanwhile i’ll stick to my F30.9

  • I think this is the best boots now in the market. Can’t wait to buy it. The F50 boots white and black color are really amazing. Very classy boots and i love it.

  • Nah,

    I’ll wait for the special 10th anniversary of the adidas predators these will be some boots to own.. Not to mention a collectors edition aswell!

  • yeaa look these are nice boots and i think they are defiantly better than the 50.8 and 50.9…..they are a kind of mix between the powerswerves and the previous f50…

    I think Ill wait for either the new predators or the mercurial vapor 6

  • i dont think adidas did a good job with these. i liked the tunit because it was a different retro boot. ya got it wrong this time…

  • HELLO TO EVERYONE , I JUST WANT TO SAY THAT I GET A PAIR OF THIS SHOES FROM A PAIR IN EUROPE . THEY ARE THE SICKEST BOOTS EVER !!! THE DESIGN IS SO GREAT AND THE NEW SKIN UPPER MATERIAL , MAKE THEM MORE LIGTHER AND FASTER ON THE FIELD . ALSO A BETTER BETTER TOUCH WITH THE BALL . THE NEW LACECOVER IS PERFECT FOR THE GREAT SHOTS . ABSOLUTELY THE BEST COMPLETE SHOES IN THE MARKET . THE STUDS SYSTEM LOOKS BETTER , ALL IS WAY BETTER THAN THE F50.8 AND .9 . IF YOU REALLY WANT TO KNOW HOW GREAT THEY ARE , THEY HAVE A PERFECT COMBINATION , LIGTHER LIKE THE VAPORS OR NEAR TO THAT WEIGTH AND POWER AND TOUCH LIKE THE PREDS AND ADIPURES . THE BEST SHOES EVER , TRY THEM AND YOU WILL SEE THAT WHAT I’M SAYING IS TRUE . THANKS

    • I really want to buy these boots but im just worried about the exchangable studs. Have you ever had any problems with them?

  • By the way does anyone know a trusted company that sells f50.9 uppers online and ships them worldwide, as I live in New Zealand its really difficult to get uppers. Please only tell me ones that arnet scams

  • These are sick especially the blue ones and the white ones. Does any one know when these will be available for pre-order?

  • NICE! but as some suggested, a good idea is to get the F30 to have regular cleats and cheaper (vs any of the top nike or adidas boots) and still a top performer (in my friend’s opinion cos I’ve yet to try this seris).

    Someone asked about uppers online? Get it from Footy-boots!

  • adidas te la comistes con esos zapatos estan sadicos son los mejores barça campeon de la champions y messi es el mejor del mundo ATT: Angelo 🙂

  • I think you are all mad these are not real football boots there a fashion statement. There for players who are more bothered about looking the part. I wear mizuno morelia and can honestly say the f50 are not in the same league, if you want to buy adidas boots then it has to be the adidas world cup….

  • HELLO TO EVERYONE , I JUST WANT TO SAY THAT I GET A PAIR OF THIS SHOES FROM A PAIR IN EUROPE . THEY ARE THE SICKEST BOOTS EVER !!!

    jaajajjaja that is funny, that boot is only on pre-order, they are coming out at july.

  • these are well nice best f50s yet i had the f50.9 black and yellow ones but thes are georgous im gonna have to get some blue ones !!!!!! these are miles nicer than vapors !!! come on chelsea

  • does anyone know if they are gonna come out with just uppers? I have the 50.8 parts wondering if they will work in these?

  • Why are there 2 different prices, what are the differences between the cheaper and more expensive one?? Overall, this boot has an amazing design and if the description is accurate, this boot is going to be amazing. i’ve seen this in a lot of adidas stores for 125 pounds but none for 195. i havent got them yet because im scared the 195 is way better. also do the studs and all the custom stuff come with the boot?

  • one of the prices is in pounds and the other is in dollars.
    and yes i love these boots but i just got f30.9’s so i wont be lacing up in a pair of f50i’s for a while 🙁

  • gaddamnit why can’t anyone find out if the uppers are compatible with previous f50’s?!? No way i’m paying for anything more than an upper. adidas ripped me off (and probably many others) by making the f50.9’s last 4 months…

    • YES THEY ARE ABSOLUTELY COMPATIBLE WITH THE PREVIOUS F50 MODELS . TRUST ME , I HAVE ALL THE MODELS INCLUDING THIS NEW F50.I . I GOT THEM FROM A FRIEND WHO GOT THEM FOR ME IN A STORE !!!

  • These are ugly compared to the f50.9. The black lace cover is feral they could have made it the same colour as the rest of the boot and the stripes look like predator stripes. Imagine a cyan f50.9 it would own this ugly bitch

  • got a pair of these today infact beautifull pair of boots and to get good contact with the ball dont believe what people are saying about the changable studs i had the f50.8’s no problems at all, smarter pair of boots than the other f50’s and much nicer looking in ‘cyan’ all in all a stunning pair of boots!

  • does the sprintskin rip bcuz i am guna get these nd i duno wat 2 get sprintskin or leather i wud usually play about every day

  • i think u should get the leather because u play every day and they might rip but they are really good boots and well worth all the money u pay 4 them and the box that u get them in is just sick =)

  • Maria never a prob with studs with my f50.8s wich i still wear 4 about 2 yrs now atill good nike ok puma great adidas best im getting the !

  • messi whos he it should be my name on them boots.

    i have a pair myself they feel and look so sexy.

    when your sprinting down right wing showing off all your skills they look klass coz all you can see is a blue blure on your feet.

    when you get the real f50’s they are defo worth the money you can have so much fun changing the three sets of studs you get

    swap messis name to mine

  • ya bende f50.9 un siyah sarısı var ama bunuda denemek istiyorum acaba kullananlardan art numarasını rica edebilirmiyim arkadaÅŸlar bu mavi olanın ama

  • I have vapors and they are brutal. The ball spins off the synthetic material when u shoot, they don’t allow tour foot to breath. Plus the synthetic stuff ripps really easy.
    And I want to get the leather versions of the F50i. They look too sick.

  • I have both Vapor 3 and F50.I and serously they are completly different…Vapor are lighter but F50 gives a better feel with the balls…seroiously recommand F50

  • i just got these boots a few days ago and love them! Haven t gotten on blister and no foot pain. only bad part is they already have a holy in the cleat(Adidas is sending me new ones). don’t know if my pair was messed up or if these cant hold up to a high school soccer practice. Feel grate and work amazing. great choice!

  • ess lo mejor de los botines nortes americanos putos anguante norte america papa aguanteee argentiinaaaa putos y es lo mejor adidas papapa putosss

  • I had a pair of mkv steam mercurials which consistently blistered me until my predator xs replaced them. Am considering f50i synths in red then buying the street studs and light chassis and sockliner. Any problems with them? Also are the synthetic ones any worse off in terms of touch on the leather or comfort? Do these feel heavy on your feet?

  • Leather version F50i feel more comfortable around the front of the ankle. (The top lace hole looks to be same altitude as synth version boot.) To get the same comfort with the synthetic F50i I had to be careful not to over-tighten laces.

    Another thing I noticed is that F50i toe stiffness is non-existent compared to adizero. Perhaps less redistribution of force away from my tired toes, and one bruised nailbed from wearing crap nike. 42 is true for me with slightly wide feet.
