Closer Look + Leak: Mo Salah Shows Off Next-Gen Adidas X 18+ Boots

Liverpool striker and Golden Boot hopeful Mohamed Salah Salah has become the latest player to give the next-gen Adidas X 18+ boots a test run in training ahead of their scheduled drop in late May / early June.

Currently sporting the green and blue Adidas X 17+ Purespeed boots from the 'Deadly Strike' pack on his quest to become the Premier League top goalscorer this season, Salah laced up in a pair of blackout Adidas X 18+ boots in training this week.

A totally different design and approach compared tot he current gen, the next-gen Adidas X 18+ cleats feature a ultra-lightweight Speedmesh upper in the front area and a ultra-thin synthetic material in the rear area for lightweight and lockdown.

Likened to classic Adidas Adizero boots, the X 18+ also gets rid of the X17's collar and introduces a redesigned Sprintframe sole plate.

Having qualified for the tournament with Egypt, Mo Salah will wear the 'Energy Mode' Adidas X 18+ cleats at the World Cup in Russia this June and July.
