Adizero Vibes - All-New Next-Gen Adidas X 18 Boots Leaked

The next-generation Adidas X 18 football boots have been leaked. Set to be released in late May 2018 in time for the 2018 Champions League final and 2018 World Cup, the next-gen Adidas X 18.1 soccer cleats introduce an all-new design.



The leaked yellow colorway of the Adidas X 18 football boot is not the launch edition of the boots but the first paint job for the 2018-19 season, set for a release in July. The next-gen Adidas X 18.1 football boot will be launched in a striking blue, yellow and black colorway.

Next-Generation Adidas X 18.1 Boot - Solar Yellow / Black

This is the next-generation Adidas X 18.1 soccer cleat.



A totally new visual design than the previous generation, the Adidas X 18.1 football boot comes with modern black Three Stripes on the outside (instead of the Adidas logo as the previous generation). It is a totally new visual appearance than the Adidas X 17, made to showcase what this boot is all about - ultimate speed.



Tech-wise, the Adidas X 17 soccer cleats are also totally different than the previous generation.

The Adidas X 18 features an all-new asymmetrical lacing system, an all-new Speedmesh upper (front area) as well as an all-new speed closure system (rear area). The ultra-thin synthetic upper is made for lightweight and close ball control, while the speed closure system is designed for ultimate lockdown.



The collar of the Adidas X 18 boot has been also changed compared to the previous generation. Known as claw collar, the collar comes with new stretch materials to provide stability, support and lock down fit.

Just as the upper and construction in rear, the outsole is also made for speed. The Adidas X 18 soccer shoe features a Speedframe outsole with a molded heel counter. A mixture of arrowhead forefoot studs and round heel studs provides perfect acceleration.



All in all, it can be said that the next-generation Adidas X 18 football boots bring the silo in a new era. Whereas the silo was launched as 'chaos boot' in 2015, the Adidas X 18 football shoes are made for ultimate speed, similar to the Adidas F50 Adizero.
