Mesut Özil Trains In Modified Blackout Adidas Ace Primeknit Boots

Mesut Özil has become the first player to train in the unreleased Adidas Ace Primeknit Cleats. The Arsenal midfielder laced up in a heavily modified version version of the Adidas Ace 15+ Primeknit Cleats, which are set to be released in late September 2015.

Last week, FC Barcelona striker Luis Suarez became the first Adidas athlete to sport a blackout version of the Adidas X 15+ Primeknit Cleat. Leaked two months ago, the Adidas Ace 15+ and Adidas X 15+ Primeknit Football Boots are the first-ever knitted version of the Adidas Ace and X.

Mesut Özil Reveals Blackout Modified Adidas Ace 15+ Primeknit Cleat

The blackout Adidas Mesut Özil Ace Ace 15+ Cleats features a knitted upper with a remarkable tongue design, which is designed for a sock-like fit with no distractions. Compared to the synthetic version of the Adidas Ace 15 Boots, the Adidas Ace Primeknit Soccer Boots are expected to offer an even softer touch, while the boots ditches the trademark Honeycomb structure in the forefoot area.

But Mesut Özil is wearing a modified version of the Adidas Ace 15+ Primeknit Boots. While the upper of the Adidas Ace Primeknit Mesut Özil Football Boots is the same used for the retail version, the outsole of the blackout Adidas Ace Primeknit Cleats is completely different.

Like his modified Adidas Ace Boots, the blackout Adidas Ace 15+ Primeknit Özil Cleats feature a totally new sole plate. The famous custom sole plate, which is used by various athletes sponsored by Adidas, removes the endless conical studs with a traditional stud configuration and also features a redesigned external heel counter.

However, it's almost certain that Adidas will launch the Adidas Ace 15+ Primeknit Boots featuring the trademark sole plate of the Adidas Ace Boots, made for Firm Ground surfaces and Artificial Grass, even though it's reported that the outsole design with nearly endless conical cleats offers less traction.
