Black / Solar Green Adidas Ace 16+ PureControl Boots Released

The second colorway of the revolutionary, laceless Adidas Ace 16+ PureControl boots introduces a less saturated look for the all-new Adidas soccer cleat, officially launched on January 29. It features an outstanding sole plate reflection finish.

Adidas unveiled a blackout version of the laceless Ace football boots in early November, while the first colorway, a striking green paint job, was released in mid-January 2016.

Adidas Ace 16+ PureControl - Core Black / Shock Pink / Solar Green

This image shows the second paint job of the laceless Adidas Ace boots.

Officially labeled "Core Black / Shock Pink / Solar Green", the new Adidas Ace 16+ PureControl cleats feature a mostly black, laceless upper with a subtle shimmering effect, while the bold three stripes on the outside are colored in eye-catching Solar Green. Whereas the regular Adidas Ace 16.1 variant of the same colorway prominently includes Shock Pink trim, the use of the color here is more reserved and only affects the front pull tab and the lower part of the studs.

Also unlike all the other versions of the Adidas Ace 16, the Adidas stripes don't come with a gradient detail and are only visible on the outside. The inside of the black Adidas Ace 16+ PureControl boots is colored solid black. The most stand-out feature of the black Adidas Ace PureControl boots is however the sole plate, which is coated in a shiny metallic finish that resembles the rainbow reflection of spilled oil.

Branded as the first football boot to offer a truly "pure touch", the new Adidas Ace PureControl cleats do away with any sort of traditional lacing and instead only boast an extension of the heightened collar in the place where the lace would be in a standard soccer boot.

Other than that, the Core Black / Shock Pink / Solar Green Adidas Ace 16+ PureControl cleats are comparable to the Primeknit version. For more Adidas Ace 16 PureControl tech details, check out our in-depth analysis.
