Carbon Fiber Sole Plate: Next-Gen Adidas X Ghosted - Name Confirmed + Features List Leaked

Update: Following up on our earlier post, we can confirm that the next generation of the Adidas X, which will make its debut at Euro 2020 this summer, will NOT be called X 20, we can reveal today.



Instead, Adidas has opted to change the naming scheme a bit, with the two top-tier variants of the boot instead named "Adidas X Ghosted+" and "Adidas X Ghosted.1". We have also obtained a full feature list of the next-gen Adidas X boots, which promise a major update compared to the current one, including a first-ever carbon fiber sole plate on an Adidas boot.

'Ghosted' is a fitting name for a silo that's marketed towards fast players and that offers a lightweight, no-nonsense approach to football boots. It's also exciting to see Adidas adopt a different naming scheme after five years of the X.

This news follows a similar move that will occur with the upcoming Adidas Predator 20, which will officially be called "Adidas Predator Mutator 20" - not to be confused with the collection of the same name!

So far, we have only been able to confirm Adidas X Ghosted+ releases for July and later in the year - this means that we might actually still see the current-gen X 19 at the Euros this summer.

While there haven't been any leaks or blackout spottings yet, we have finally obtained a full feature list for the all-new Adidas X Ghosted+ (laceless) and Ghosted.1 (laced).

Following in the steps of its speed boot predecessors, the Adidas X Ghosted line introduces the new 'Mirageskin (+) / Fluroskin (.1)' upper and a new carbon fiber sole plate.
