Emmanuel Adebayor has turned out to be a smart loan signing for Real Madrid, as the Togolese striker seems intent on proving his worth as a world-class centre forward – and it seems the Man City loanee has treated himself to some brand new football boots as a pat on the back!

adiZero football boots

Spotted here in action for Madrid against Levante, the ex-Arsenal striker has opted to wear an unreleased colourway of the adiZero.

We doubt this move was completely approved by adidas, but we’re sure the Three Stripes won’t mind the hype as they gear up to reveal the latest version of their signature speed football boots later on this week.

One point of interest is we can safely say that these are the leather version of the standard adiZero, rather than the new adiZero Prime – and unusual choice for Adebayor as he often trains in the 145g Primes – though this could be a forced switch thanks to the damp conditions at the Bernabeau at the weekend.

First spotted at a Trade show in New York, we’ve been looking forward to the White/Cyan/Pink adiZero for some time, having seen it in both the Prime and regular versions – we’re glad to see it looks great on the pitch and we can’t wait for release day!

    these are in the canadian shopadidas dot ca site. they’ve been out for week or so in north america.

    starting to see how in different markets adidas release leather vs. synthetics. i had no idea in usa/canada they have the leather oranges whereas i haven’t seen them on prodirect in leather.

    if anyone can get me leather cyan’s – fg let me know. great site.

    First off, I have to say these are definitely my favourite of the Prime colourways so far.

    Secondly, do you guys know when they be on miadidas? I know they are now, but only with that one odd colourway, and with very few options.

    actually they have been available on for more than 3 weeks now (leather version only, non prime) 250 cad minus 20 percent if u use a visa and coupon code visa2011 free shipping with 20 percent 230 cad clean. the so called “blackout” preds were also there several weeks ago. adizeros should be priced at under 100 their durability is garbage but i guess thats how the market is these days. kids dont care about that though they just care for looks. its a shame.

    I would just like to mention that the difference in wieght between the Adidas Adizero and the Adidas prime is 20g. yes twenty grams. . . . . i own a pair of adizeros (sun/black) and id say i was fairly quick. i just dont know how much difference 20g will make to my game. how they can justify such a price tag for the primes?

    @jpizzo I had no idea either that you could get Leather orange/warning versions on the Canda site, thats not fair! I might start shopping on there now. They also have F30 turfs – ive been looking for these for ages!!!

    Someone enlighten me why this is?

    i was shocked looking at this myself. i spend most of my time skimming the uk boot sites and had no idea that different markets (USA/CAN) have different product offerings to UK. i’d see Nani, Messi in leather colourways and figured they were custom/unavailable and they were in my backyard the whole time….

    kuddos to @mario1983 for the visa promocode – it works!

    anyone know where i can get F50 fg CYAN in leather? i have seen a few leather SG but does us Canadians little help at the start of the season when the ground is still thawing.
