One of adidas' first soccer boot launches of 2011 is the much-awaited F50 adiZero Prime - now the world's lightest soccer shoe. The new adidas F50 adiZero Prime is the second generation of the adidas F50 adiZero boot that was launched in the Spring of 2010. The shoe went on to becoming the top scoring boot at the 2010 FIFA World Cup and is now a favorite among professional players such as Lionel Messi, Gonzalo Higuaín, Daniel Alves, David Silva, David Villa, Samir Nasri, Thomas Müller, Asamoah Gyan, Salomon Kalou, Arjen Robben, Nani, Diego Forlán and Gareth Bale.
Weighing in at only 5.1 oz., the adidas F50 adiZero Prime TRX takes 0.7 oz. off the F50 adiZero and is 0.2 oz. lighter than the previous lightest boot in the world, the PUMA v1.10 SL.
The shoe is developed on a high-speed last with an adiLite single layer design (no foam, no lining) that is soft, lightweight yet extremely durable. It features durable Kevlar laces, an inner contrast-color TPU support bands for stability. The adidas F50 adiZero Prime has two sockliner options, one ultralight and one comfort TPU Sprintframe outsole with Traxion for acceleration and speed and comes with a shoe bag, extra laces and shoe cloth.
Here's a detailed look at the current colorways of the adidas F50 adiZero Prime (Black/White/Electricity and Warning/Black/White) along with video of reigning FIFA World Player of the Year and FC Barcelona and Argentina superstar Lionel Messi juggling the new boot.
The adidas F50 adiZero Prime soccer boot is now available at the World Soccer Shop adidas Footwear Store.
