As easyJet have increased their prices 8 fold for a ticket from London to Rome in late May (£847 return) we can now safely assume that Uefa has decided to keep the Champions League final in the Italian capital.


Barcelona will meet Manchester United there on May 27th, despite a keen campaign from certain parts of the media who wanted the final moved due to Rome’s appalling record of football violence.

On Footy Boots, the poll we conducted on the question of Rome’s suitability gave us the closest result ever. Nearly 3000 votes were cast, 1499 of you wanted the final to remain in Italy with 1482 saying it should be moved.

Will our next debate be as close as that? It could be, as the question is simply this: Which is better, the adiPure or the adiPure II?

adipure debate

Adidas adiPure

Both models perfectly illustrate a sparseness of gimmicks, resulting in boots dripping with class.

Sleek, clean and elegant – the adiPure’s symbolise a certain grace and style. And they are worn by some of the top players in the world including Kaka, Lampard and van Persie.

What’s not to like about them – but which one comes out on top?

adiPure Top Facts

Kaka was the first player to receive a pair of the adiPure football boots.
100% premium soft K-leather upper.
Glove like fit, lightweight comfort.
Pre moulded EVA sockliner with adiprene insert in the heel for additional comfort.

    To be honest I bet they give the same performance.

    I think the adipure 2 are sleaker, also design some on the mi adidas there are some sick designs.

  2. says: aliurip

    i vote for adipure I; it has better or more balanced white (bright) and black (dark) combination. I have worn the first but not the second. The telstar version was best buy.

    1. says: Toppo

      I agree the front is far to tight and because the laces are on the side they are hard to do up due to the tightness. The adipure 1 is loads better becuase i can actually wear them.

  3. says: st.huba

    I have both shoes adiPure I and adiPure II
    I must say that the adiPure I shoe has a much better shot stability, I believe the new seam and the too big surface on the inside of the shoe are the guilt what adiPure I better does … Personally the Adidas stripes on the inside of the boot are absent for me! … both are top producte, however, Adi pure 1 is the num.1 hehe

  4. says: Aussie Lad

    I have the adiPure 1 and i think they were class as, but the design of the 2 seems a lot classier, plus i’m sure they have maintained and improved on the 1’s.

  5. says: Jack

    Well chances are I’m gonna buy a pair of adipures after the disaster with the f50s, (They repetedely gave me blisters) Who has tried both and which is better?

  6. says: ollie

    i have both adipure boots and i have both in black with white stripes, the first one has a slimmer fit and is very narrow, but the second is quite wide but the design is better. overall my vote is for the first boot

  7. says: Frank

    I think the 2. is much better! The new, smooth inside rocks(!) and the are just much better then the first. I played in the Adipure before, but I buyed the adipure 2. And the are the best boots I’ve ever worn.

  8. says: Al

    Adipure II hands down!

    It fits my foot perfect and is the comfiest shoe I have ever owned. I’m a big fan of the tongue or lack thereof, and it’s the perfect boot.
