After a summer living in the shadow of the new adiPower, the adiZero Prime is back to remind everyone that not only was it the top-scoring boot in the EPL and La Liga last year, and they’re still the undisputed lightest football boots in the world.
And what better way to do so than with a cornea-melting colourway like this adiZero Prime – Anodised Blue/White/Slime?
adidas have been using their ‘Slime’ colour on a couple of their signature football boots over the last could of months, with the last adiZero release and the women’s adiZero both bearing the distinctive green hue.
That said, we’ve definitely not seen it used as liberally as it is on the adiZero Prime – Anodised Blue/White/Slime!
Looking they’ve survived a nuclear fallout, there’s no doubting that the' adiZero Prime – Anodised Blue/White/Slime will be a favourite colourway amongst those who love their football boots to be bold!
Those with a keen eye will notice that the' adiZero Prime – Anodised Blue/White/Slime is more-or-less a quick switch of the White/Blue/Slime adiZero that we’ve seen the likes of Ashley Young and Jermaine Defoe wearing in pre-season, much the same way that Messi’s Electricity colourway is a reversal of the Purple ‘standard’ colourway.
That said, it’s our understanding that these will be general colourway, and Messi will continue in the Electricity adiZero for the time being.
As for players who will wear the' adiZero Prime – Anodised Blue/White/Slime – we imagine that Fredy Montero of the Seattle Sounders can’t wait to get his hands on a pair!
Since launching in January this year, the adiZero Prime has set a real benchmark in lightweight performance footwear, weighing in at only 145g per boot it is the lightest boot on the market at time of writing.
A combination of the revolutionary SprintFrame construction in the chassis and the adiTwin Lite synthetic upper separate these adidas football boots from the rest of the pack, and it will certainly take some doing to unseat them from their lofty perch.
Though with an RRP of £210/$300 – they represent a significant investment for a pair of football boots!
