Chicharito Joins Adidas - Becomes Adidas Nemeziz Player




Chicharito has been lacing up in Adidas soccer cleats since March 2017 when he totally surprisingly switched away from the Nike Mercurial Superfly to the Adidas X 16.1, while he has been wearing the traditional laces version of the Adidas Nemeziz football boots since a few months.

Chicharito talked about his new partnership with Adidas at an Adidas Nemeziz event in London some days ago:

Soccer Bible: You're working with adidas these days. What's that like? You can tell us...

They will do everything to make me comfortable. If I have a certain request for my boots then they see to it straight away. I’m wearing the Nemeziz now and it’s such a great mix of boots. It’s such an interesting design and it works perfectly. That’s what I love about adidas, they don’t stop creating and you can never predict what’s next.
