We’ve already seen two colourways of the all-new adidas adiPure III – the White / Gold / Black worn by Frank Lampard of Chelsea versus Everton last weekend and the Black / White / Gold as chosen by Karim Benzema for Real Madrid’s clash away to Valencia.
And here’s the third and by far, the most impactful of the three, in Gold / Black.
So far, reaction to the adiPure III has been pretty mixed. Trawling through the comments already submitted to Footy Boots, some have suggested they resemble baseball cleats while others have argued that they have lost the classy look of their predecessors. However, on the flip side, fans of the new boot say they look more streamlined and that the new tongue design is a massive selling point.
Looks aside, being from the adiPure range, we can take it as read that the boots will be comfortable and extremely functional.
The Gold / Black colourway is expected to be on retail sale by March 2010 with pre-order starting in February.

miam miam 🙂 one pair for me
then what did Milito and Seedorf wore last weekend? Cannot be both had the same MiAdidas boots, could they?
They look way to old fashioned i no there heratige but there just no very nice anyone agree
hahaha in the “Tech Specs” instead of “Clean kicking surface” it says “Clean licking surface” good to know eh?
Basically these are the Adipure II’s with a tongue and greater heel support. It’s an improved version over the old ones.
I don’t see why everyone is complaining about the looks so much.
Seriously, looks shouldn’t matter in a football boot, as nobody else really cares what is on your feet.
Functionality is the most important thing about a football boot, but everyone always gets hung up on the looks and why they do is beyond me.
Now, I don’t know about everyone else here, but football is about scoring goals and beating the other team, and not about fashion….from a marketing perspective though, this may not be the case. -_-
However, my opinion is biased as I am a Copa Mundial wearer.
“licking surface” – that’s great:)
Hehehe, I noticed another copa mundial wearer above echoing my sentiments. He’s right. Functionality is the most important thing about a football boot but everyone always gets hung up on the looks. I couldn’t have said it any better myself. I wonder whether it’s a coincidence we both wear copas? I guess if we cared about looks we’d be in vapours or F50s eh?
I wonder how it tastes? I’m sure the creator of this article can tell us…after all, he’s proclaimed the boots have a “clean licking surface”! 😉
nice… these seem to be the best colourway… should i get the pred x or these??? hmm… wish i was a kid again (playing that much and that often) with the money i have today (and afford 2 pair of top end boots!!!) haha…
i was the one who said that they look like baseball cleats =P ahahaha
but, why adidas used that gold ??? i prefer a shiny gold, not that gold
saw milito training in those, look ok. but i saw a new (i guess) red pair of the pred’s X, by younousse sankhare of psg. dunno if its customized or a new colourway, but they looked kinda awesome…what do you think footy-boots?
poor zizou wannabe =P
“clean licking surface” ahahahahahhahahaha xD 😀
Had adipure 1…. Very nice boot. If you look at close up pictures of kaka and benzema’s adipure 2’s, you will see that they are customised to have a tongue, instead of wrap around thing. What does this tell you… Even the elite proffesional players prefer a tongue. That is why i didn’t buy th 2’s. i might buy the 3’s, because they have a tongue. Btw… Can anyone suggest wether i should buy these or the vapours?
adidas still make the same mistake…they still can’t make a light weigh boots.
its about time some decent gold boots came out man! 😀
tho i dont get why adipure are updatting their boots so often- 3 version already :S
the first version where the best and most comfortbale if you ask me
hahahaha ive already got them
$220 dollars from bobby10 football world
they are really comfortable and the colour is amazing
Is it me or do all the adidas boots now look similar
