The Adidas Ace 16.1 Primeknit FG / AG is back in the middle of the year. After the last year of the Ace 15.1 came on the market, one could already guess that 2016 the Ace 16.1 will appear. In this review, however, it is about the special Primeknit version of this model.
From the look and design, this shoe is a real eye-catcher. But what is behind the façade? We took the Adidas Ace 16.1 Primeknit FG with on the football pitch and have looked quite times.
In terms of wearing comfort, the Primeknit upper material is of course first to be addressed. As in the case of the Ace 16+ PURECONTROL, this upper material really pleased us. You simply feel a clear difference to the normal artificial leather or synthetic material.
The so-called Primecut form of the Adidas Ace 16.1 Primeknit FG / AG looks something funny. It seems as if the rear part is much wider than usual. After the shoe is on the foot, however, all doubts vanish.
It took no 5 minutes, then we felt in this model pudelwohl. The soft and flexible Primeknit upper material plays an important role.
Another factor that positively affects wearing comfort is the "inner sock". We have two material layers in the area of the ankle. The inner layer surrounds the foot very tightly, creating a sock-like feeling, as we are accustomed, for example, to the Adidas X15.1.
The inner sole is also very similar to the Adidas X15.1
In direct comparison to the Ace 16+ PURECONTROL the Adidas Ace 16.1 Primeknit FG / AG is somewhat narrower. This is, of course, due to the laces, which allow you to adjust the fit very well. In general, this model is safe for most foot types in order. Players with very wide feet should be careful, however, choose another model.
Overall, the Adidas Ace 16.1 Primeknit FG / AG is a super comfortable football shoe, which is definitely in the premium class in terms of comfort. Thumbs up for that!
Compared to the Ace 16+ PURECONTROL, this model puts a new dimension in stability. Especially the three Adidas strips are to be mentioned here. Maybe you're wondering now, what do the three Adidas strips have to do with stability? Yes, that is exactly what we asked ourselves at the beginning.
But if you look closely and the stripes of the Adidas Ace 16.1 Primeknit FG / AG also times, did not realize what it is. The strips are made of a special plastic which stabilizes the shoe from the outside. They are connected to the shoelaces. When the shoelaces are tightened, the Adidas stripes are automatically centered and the foot is stabilized better on both sides.
Thus, particularly the metatarsal region is extremely stable and tight. One should take care, however, that the shoelaces are not too tightly tied together. Let some blood run through your feet.
The stud pattern of the Adidas Ace 16.1 Primeknit FG / AG is very similar or nearly identical to the lug pattern
Of the Adizero F50. The cams are round and according to Adidas also suitable for artificial lawns. We managed the shoe on real lawns and artificial lawns and are of the opinion that this model can be played in both courts. However, the boot has felt even better on real lawns than on artificial grass. Here everyone has to decide for themselves whether one for artificial lawns still a few Multinocken shoes to buy or not.
Overall, the Adidas Ace 16.1 FG / AG provides the necessary stability to protect and support your foot optimally!
"Boss everyone!". The motto of the Ace 16.1 has it all. How is the ball feeling, can it meet this motto? Definitely!
The ball feeling of the Adidas Ace 16.1 Primeknit FG / AG is really not from bad parents. The upper is certainly not the thinnest thing we've ever seen, but it feels pretty good on the ball.
With Primeknit it is just good dribbling! We have already celebrated the ball feeling with the Adidas Ace 16+ PURECONTROL and this looks not different in this model.
Sure, if your technique is more like a Mertesacker (nothing for bad Merte) then we have to disappoint you unfortunately. Also the Adidas Ace 16.1 Primeknit FG / AG will not transport you directly to the Messi. But hey, exercise makes the master.
The new Adidas non-stop-grip technology is also a must for this shoe. Non-stop ... what? The non-stop-grip (NSG) technology is virtually the counterpart to Nike's All Conditions Control. NSG simply describes small dots that are spread over the top material. They should ensure that you can control the ball well even in wet weather. In our opinion, the difference can be felt and it works as well as with the (ACC - All Conditions Control).
The game with the sole is certainly not optimal with these cams, but it could also be worse. Our tip: Especially in wet weather you should not exaggerate. Otherwise, the ball will slip under the shoe and you pull the wrath of your coach on you.
All in all a very solid ball feeling, which is just the dribblers among you really fun to make!
SHOOTING / FITNESS
Compared to the Adidas Ace 15.1 FG / AG, the Adidas Ace 16.1 Primeknit FG / AG offers no special features, which support the shooting. However, this is not a disadvantage.
We liked this "naked" shot feeling very well. Due to the Primeknit material you feel the ball very well and then a 1A touch. We were able to score a ball or two at the keeper.
In passport our opinion is similar. No extra features that allow you to automatically play 10 passports. At least with us not :). No seriously, the passport does not feel very different compared to other Adidas models. Good, old Adidas quality just as you're accustomed to

Overall a really good shot and passport of the Adidas Ace 16.1 Primeknit FG / AG. Sometimes you do not have to renew everything to deliver a good performance.
The fact that the Adidas Ace 16.1 Primeknit FG / AG is equipped with this special upper material makes us strongly dependent on a rather long life. The processing at the often "endangered" places around the clamping looks pretty good. Of course, if you use this model only on artificial grass, you will probably see faster signs of wear.
After a training session on lawns and artificial lawns, we could not see any wear marks. We expect this from a high-quality football shoe but also.
Our forecast: The Adidas Ace 16.1 Primeknit FG / AG should carry you at least one full season over the pitch!
"Boss everyone!" - a cool motto for a hammer shoe! The Adidas Ace 16.1 Primeknit FG / AG has convinced on the whole line and is right in the Olymp of football boots. No matter whether it is ball feeling, stability or wearing comfort. The Adidas Ace 16.1 Primeknit FG / AG knows how to convince.
We can recommend this model to everyone warmly and wish lots of fun on the pitch!
