Laceless Next-Gen Adidas X 18+ World Cup Launch Boots Released

The next-gen Adidas X 18+ Purespeed soccer cleats introduce an all-new laceless design.

The next-generation Adidas X 2018 soccer shoes were launched this morning ahead of their upcoming debut in the 2018 Champions League Final and the 2018 World Cup next month. The blue colorway is the launch edition of the next-generation Adidas X 18+ football boot.

Adidas X 18+ Purespeed Boot - Blue / Solar Yellow / Black

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

The Adidas X 18+ Purespeed football boot comes with an all-new design. The cleat ditches the Adidas X branding of the previous generation and now comes with a new 'speed positioning' for the Three Stripes. The 2018 World Cup (launch colorway) of the Adidas X 18+ Purespeed football shoes is striking blue with electricity used for the Three Stripes and other applications.

Tech-wise, the Adidas X 18+ Purespeed soccer cleats are also totally different to the previous generation.

Whereas the Adidas X 17+ Purespeed soccer cleat featured a lace cover to hide the traditional laces, the Adidas X 18 football boot comes without any laces at all. The cleat features a ultra-lightweight 'Skeletalweave' upper in the front area and a ultra-thin synthetic material in the rear area for lightweight and lockdown.

The collar of the Adidas X 17 boot is gone. The Adidas X 18 soccer shoe features a Speedframe sole plate with a molded heel counter. Adidas uses a mixture of arrowhead forefoot studs and round heel studs to provide perfect acceleration.

Basically, to summarize things up, the next-generation Adidas X 18+ football boot is somehow a modern Adidas Adizero football boot rather than an Adidas X (speed silo instead of chaos silo).
