Long passes, short passes, crossfield balls, in every situation you will feel the ball directly on your foot. It was quite nice to absolutely smash the ball in these, since the thin upper gives you instant feedback, but again, I like having at least a little bit of cushioning. adidas lace up football boots with a Fluroskin upper that moulds to the foot acting like a second skin providing stability while the lightweight outsole is designed for rapid acceleration.

However, a positive of the upper meant that the foot mostly stays in place and I didn’t feel the upper give way when cutting or running. The lightweight, low-profile upper keeps your feet locked in while giving your ankles room to go up the gears.The way adidas has executed the use of carbon fibre is extremely clever and is hands down the best implementation of the material in football boots, ever. Many of the best players in the history of the game have trusted adidas football boots to help them reach their full potential, including Zinedine Zidane, David Beckham, and the one and only Lionel Messi. Therefore we accept no responsibility or liability should a pair of boots develop a fault after being used. Plus its lightweight Fluroskin upper provides stability as well as futuristic wireframe support system to keep you locked down while you show off that minimalist low cut collar silhouette at top speed. Switching to a floating tongue might actually allow for better lockdown, as well as allowing people to adjust the fit.

The upper being a uniform material does help in this case because there is a unison that is achieved when passing or receiving the ball.

The way the FLUROSKIN felt when trapping the ball reminded me a lot of the Vapors that had a Teijin-synthetic upper from years past.

Bringing raw pace to the pitch since 2015, the X was first introduced with the intention of “causing chaos” in the final third, enabling attackers to disrupt defences with explosive play. Again, part of this wish should probably be attributed to my history with leather boots, but I think the point should still stand. In an attempt to replicate the success of that boot, adidas has gone back to the drawing board and came up with the X Ghosted. Layered with a TPU coating, giving a tactile touch on the ball, gripping to the boot no matter the speed. Since the X is a speed boot, you might expect the lockdown to be excellent once you tie up the laces While there is definitely decent lockdown there, I personally feel the that the lockdown on the Morelia Neo 3 Beta Japan is better.While some of the tech that adidas has come up with for the X would seem like something that Nike would be more likely to create, especially the use of carbon fibre, the X Ghosted shows that adidas have given themselves a possible platform to dominate again. Going into this review I kept telling myself to alter my expectations because I almost always review high quality leather boots and going to a synthetic speed boot will be a different experience and require different expectations. The forward arrived at the Etihad on a five-year deal from Valencia, inheriting the number 21 shirt from City legend David Silva who left for Real Sociedad at the end of the season prior. You will always be aware that you are wearing a speed boot with a synthetic upper, but this also means that there is nothing in the way of you and the ball. Instead we seem to have an upper that seemed to ignore adi’s previous history of great synthetic uppers.

Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item.It’s understandable why adidas didn’t make the lockdown more solid with the X Ghosted, as the design doesn’t necessarily allow for it since it is a one piece upper. Giving it a reason to exist on the boot means its something to look out for and makes it worth having. The "Ghosted" name is inspired by the boots' lightweight design and low-profile silhouette, The boots also have a unique design that sets them apart from traditional football boots, making them popular among players who want to stand out on the pitch. Many players will be pleased to hear this as there are surprisingly not a lot of boots on the market like this. Speedskin upper Lightweight, sustainable Primeknit upper, so the weight of the boot is reduced while helping the environment.
