This is the next-generation Adidas X 18 soccer cleat.

The next-generation Adidas X 18 cleats are striking blue in the front and black in the rear. Adidas Combines the blue and black main colors of the Adidas X 2018 World Cup boots with flashy yellow for the Three Stripes and a few other parts of the boot.

If we look at the tech, it is easy to see that the Adidas X 18.1 are totally different to the previous generation and the laceless Adidas X 18+ boots. The Adidas X 18.1 football shoe has a completely new asymmetrical lacing system, a newly developed Speedmesh upper and all-new speed closure system (rear area).

Another remarkable element of the next-gen Adidas X 18.1 is the claw collar. The outsole of the cleats is also completely new.
