Vault Series - adidas F50 adizero
Posted on May 28 2018
A month after the heated victory of Die Mannschaft at the Maracanã Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, Adidas decided to turn down the Samba flame and roll out not one, but two simplistic and clean Adizero designs to the public.
The F50 Adizero, a lightweight silo focused on speed, was brought back to a prototype silhouette consisting of an all black or all white color way. If the color wasn’t enough, Adidas shifted the 3-stripes back and placed a leather vamp in the forefoot made up of their durable Taurus leather. A thin synthetic material is kept throughout the mid-foot to maintain the lightweight feel and responsiveness when changing direction. All this material is then built on top of Adidas’ iconic one-piece Sprintframe outsole for maximum traction and minimal weight.
