The new Adidas Ace 16+ Purecontrol was made especially at the request of the world champion and arsenal playmaker. The special feature of this shoe is immediately apparent. The shoelaces are missing on the upper. A small revolution on the lawn.
Mesut Özil: "Shoelaces interfere with ball control. I told adidas that I put so many knots in the crotch, that it minimizes my ball feeling as little as possible. When adidas brought me the new shoes, it was as if they had created my dreamy product. "
But it was not only Özil who had previously unveiled his new boat at Instagram. The two other playmakers, Ivan Rakitic and Oscar, presented on their accounts the laceless Adidas Ace 16+ Purecontrol. As of January 23, these three stars will wear the adidas football shoe for the first time on the lawn. Further professionals, who are supposed to carry the Ace 16+ Purecontrol, will follow on 30 January.
Adidas Ace 16+ Purecontrol - "Like a stocking on the foot"
"The answer is provided by the adidas vice-chief designer Sam Handy and adidas vice-product manager Dean Lokes in an interview with the magazine soccer:" How can the foot please without a shoelace provide a stable stop? " "As soon as you slip into the Adidas ACE 16+, it feels like a stocking in the foot." Interestingly, not all professionals who should give their feedback on the new boat in the development seem as enthusiastic as the good Mesut. Dean: "In the initial phase of the design process, you get feedback from the players that some do not like it and other players say it's great as soon as they put on the shoes. We are realists and we know that this type of shoe will not be suitable for everyone. "
New technology in the Adidas Ace 16+ Purecontrol
In addition to the "lace-up" feature, the first adidas football shoe of the year 2016 contains some new technological updates. The upper from the further developed Pureknit material of the ACE 15+ and X15 + is to ensure an extremely good ball feel. The stability of the foot is also ensured by an update of the TPU Cage.
Even if the whole shoe looks extremely crazy and so many fanatics of the classic adidas Copa Mundial certainly frown, we are curious about the first opinions of you. Do you want perfection in the game?
