Adidas F50 development

The Adidas F50 range was a succes for many years. The first boot came out in 2003 with the cool launch colourway black and yellow, remember D.Cisse as a main character in the Adidas advertisment. They were also one of the first boots were you could hide the laces and this way get a better strike to the ball. 


In 2004 Adidas released the second generation of the F50 range for the European Championship, Adidas F50+ with a cool spiderweb design. Still one of the coolest boot designs out there!


2006 became a big year for Adidas F50 as the Adidas F50+ Tunit was revealed along side the World Cup in Germany. First time ever you could customize your boot by changing the upper or the soleplate or the studs! Whole summer was all about the new Tunit. Models between 2007-2009 were quite similiar…


Next boot that has to be mentioned is the first ever Adidas F50 Adizero, released during the World Cup in South Africa! A beautiful boot and very light. The best of all was that you could get them in leather version. I think this model still is one of people’s favourite. Everyone remebers D.Forlan winning the top goalscorer and player of the tournament in WC2010!


And next boot is still the lightest boot ever made, the Adidas F50 Crazylight 99 gram! Revealed in 2014 and later released in limited numbers 299 pairs. Not a durable boot but for sure pushing the boundaries!


Last one is actually not from the F50 range, but some how we could look at them as follower to the old F59 range. The boot is called Adidas Glitch and was released in 2016, only in UK. This boot got no laces and you can change between the inner- and outerskins, also no laces needed! Let’s see when this boot is released worldwide.


Thank you for reading!

Adidas F50 Adizero match worn “Benz9” 

Last week I recieved these, for me this is a milestone! As some of you might know I got two football players that I admire: Zinedine Zidane and Karim Benzema. To own a boot worn by your idol is huge!

(Don’t know the owner of the picture above, but if any of you recognice it please let me know)


Both of the boots got “Benz 9” printed on the heel. I’m also happy that these specific boots are the first edition of the Adidas F50 Adizero range and in the cool white/black/pink colourway.


Benzema is wearing 9uk 9.5us 43 1/3EU sized boots, if anyone wondered. I actually got another pair coming and hope I would someday afford a pair of Zidane match worn boots.

Adidas Adizero 5-Star 6.0 Uncaged

Few weeks ago I was scrolling on the internet and I suddenly found these on adidas.com. What can I say, I fell in love with the animalistic design! 


The boots are called: Adidas Adizero 5-Star 6.0 Uncaged. And there was 6 different animals printed on the boots, I chose the shark theme. So the boots are actually American football cleats, but the design and feel is pretty close to the Adizero we are used to know. These boots have some extra padding in the heel area and slightly different stud-pattern.


Only issue was that they were only available for people in US, but I was lucky enough to have a friend in the US who actually orderd them for me. 

A nice addition to the other animalistic boots in my collection as the Adidas Tunit Y3 collections!

Adidas F50 Adizero 99 Gram

A landmark for football boot history. First ever football boot to weight just under 100 grams; the Adidas F50 Adizero 99 gram. Limited edition of 299 pairs made worldwide.  
Adidas spent over 2 years experimenting and testing which materials and components to use to reach two digits. The upper is made of a single layered lightweight textile material inspired by special material from NASA. The upper is not affected by any weather condition and it will always weight 99 grams.  
The super thin soleplate is made of polymide and is only 1 mm thick! Adidas has made everything to reduce weight.

  
The boot is so light that the durability gets weaker, that´s why Adidas included a tag with the boots saying “Only for the games that matter”.
