The red / black / solar red Adidas X Speedflow'Meteorite' boots have a stunning look in red, black and white. An electricity yellow is used for the inner part of the shoe.

The official color combo is "Red / Black / Solar Red".

If we look at the tech, the red / black / solar red Adidas X Speedflow football shoes were quite heavily updated to the Adidas X Ghosted, especially in the collar / ankle part.

“X GHOSTED was a major breakthrough for us in helping players unlock new levels of linear speed,” said Ben Herath, VP Design, adidas Football.

“But through our research when developing the next iteration of adidas’ fastest football boot, the team were led by this idea of merging the physical and mental. So, we’ve combined the very best in adidas performance technology with a deep understanding of the speed needs of the modern game – X Speedflow supports instant speed, radical agility and instinct with the aim of creating the space for players to reach a true state of ‘flow’”.

One main difference is the construction around the ankle and the tongue, which are both higher for a closer fit and therefore more lockdown and speed. Called Engineered Agility Frame, it is a lattice structure which wraps around the foot to keep it in place.

The boots are very different to he old, unpopular generation

A new Engineered Lightweight Primeknit upper provides an adaptive fit and boosts reaction speeds alongside the improved Primeknit Speed Collar technology.

The outsole also includes the evolved technology of the Carbitex Speedframe, which helps boost acceleration by increasing the amount of force pushed on to the ground when athletes start their sprints.
