These were the words that seduced me into buying the adidas F50 AdiZero after watching their promo video starring Messi.Faster with the ball than without it.
I was a little hesitant to click the ‘check out’ button of the shoe store as I wondered whether the 5.8 ounce feather-weight boots could support my 5’11 frame. I am certainly not ready to spend two bills to crack an ankle! But because the boots looked too damn incredible on Messi, I ‘checked out’ anyway.
The boots arrived after what seemed like the five longest days of my life, delivered to my office in its pretty little box. I put them on, and experienced the incredible feeling of nothingness. Pick up your BlackBerry right now, and that is about how much the F50 AdiZeros weigh! I’ve hopped around in them in my back yard, and so far the boots have been comfortable - lightweight, good arch support, no pressure nor pinches.
A few days after I received the boots, World Cup started. I didn’t leave my house for 1 month and watched as the F50 AdiZeros became the #1 scoring boot in the tournament (40 goals in 62 matches, as announced by adidas). I am actually quite excited that I own these deadly bad boys now! Can’t wait to take them out for a break-in session once the weather clears up. I’ll keep you all posted on the progress here.
Have anyone taken the F50 AdiZeros to the field yet? How does it measure up to its claims?
