A design that looks to redefine the boundaries of fast as athletes return to the biggest stages in football. It’s built for speed, even looking like a satellite returning from orbit at supersonic-speeds. Yes, the X Ghosted, is here.
Thanks to the introduction of adidas’ all-new performance material technology, (stick with us here) the translucent ‘mirageskin’ and single layer of high-performance material, the boot is layered over a wire framework. The aim; to create a seamless upper that provides lightweight stability and support.
The boot is unique in both looks and technological advances. It’s see-through aesthetic won’t be for everyone, however this boot aims to give athletes the ghost-like nature of speed. To top it off the ‘three stripes’ placement is inspired by that of the wings of a peregrine falcon, which of course, as we all know, is the fastest creature on earth… (their words not ours).
The air is rapidly sucked out of the boot, with a vacuum fit experience that let’s players feel snug in their ‘bird-ghost’ boots, (it’s the best name we could come up with at the moment). Not to mention explosive agile movement achieved, thanks to the science of the boot that ensures the boot’s design sticks with a close proximity to the contours of the athletes foot. We predict a few more toe-trodding induced injuries coming the athletes way with these!
Some more science…The innovation was crafted via an open source approach, and harnesses the extreme power and performance of carbon fibre but in a flexible form. X Ghosted is the first football boot available at scale with the integration of a dynamic carbon plate.
