Official: Emile Smith-Rowe Joins Adidas

Update: Emile Smith-Rowe has been officially announced as an Adidas player, having been wearing the X Speedflow boot for a number of weeks now.

Smith-Rowe Signs with Adidas

The deal was finally announced with a video posted by Adidas featuring Arsenal legend Ray Parlour.
Interestingly, Smith-Rowe has been given his own logo by the German brand, a stylised form of his initials. He joins the likes of Messi, Mo Salah and Paul Pogba, which could indicate that Adidas consider him in their top tier of players.

Original: Emile Smith-Rowe has been spotted wearing a pair of Adidas X Speedflow boots in a recent Youtube video.

Smith-Rowe Spotted in Adidas Boots

The Arsenal star appeared in a video (which you can see below from the 5:40 mark) with Youtuber Chunkz and took part in a football drill while wearing the red white and blue Adidas X Speedflow+.

This is a change for him, as last season he wore the regular Nike Phantom VNM before switching to a blacked out version since the start of this season, suggesting that he had been without a boot contract.

This latest sighting is likely an indicator that he is set to join Adidas, if he has not already done so. Smith-Rowe also posted photos from the shoot to his Instagram account, with the boots clearly visible, possibly the most sure-fire sign that a deal is imminent.

It would be a logical move from Adidas signing the young Arsenal number 10, meaning he’d be fully kitted out in the Three Stripes when playing for his club, as well as featuring prominently in any kit or collection launches - something we have seen a lot of since the Adidas-Arsenal partnership began.
