Light makes fast on the football field.
It may be the football off-season but adidas is unveiling a brand new cleat to take football footwear to the next level: the adiZero 5-Star cleat. The adiZero 5-Star weighs in at only 6.9 ounces, making it 3 ounces lighter than the closet cleat competition. Dynamic NFL athletes like Buffalo Bills’ C.J. Spiller and Kansas City Chiefs’ Eric Berry, will be among those sporting the shoe come the new season (well, if there is a season, with that whole lockout thing).
What makes the adiZero 5-Star cleat so light is something called SPRINTSKIN – a revolutionary and innovative synthetic upper that feels like second skin on the foot. The shoe also uses Sprint Frame technology that’s 50 percent lighter than the standard outsole. To ensure players like Spiller can make quick cuts and run patterns all the way to the endzone, internal TPU support bands help laterally stabilize the foot.
For traction, the adiZero 5-Star introduces brand new triangular cleats – the strongest shape – to allow for maximum acceleration and traction on turf or grass. Each cleat on the forefoot and heel are angled for specific in-game needs.
adiZero 5-Star releases on April 1st and retails for $100 in 15 different colorways. You’ll be able to pick up your own pair at Eastbay, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Shopadidas, and adidas retail stores and dealers.
