The Scoop: Four-time FIFA World Player of the Year Lionel Messi is the inspiration behind adidas’ newest soccer cleat release, the adiZero F50 TRX FG. The lightweight cleat, which drops at 5.8 ounces, isbuilt to help keep players fast on their feet.
Point to the upper as evidence. The area is designed with a single-layer of what adidas calls Sprintskin, durable technology that reduces the use of materials and aims to deliver a better feel on the ball.
Additional features – Sprintweb and Sprintframe – aid with supporting the foot and keeping it stable. And the stud arrangement is purposed to help provide a firm grip, encouraging smoother acceleration and necessary for supporting sharp changes of direction.
