Most Intriguing Releases Of The last decade: 2016 Adidas ACE 16+ PURECONTROL.

If the removal of laces is to be challenged by anything on the 2016 ACE 16+ in terms of “major changes,” then it has to be the soleplate. While adidas is still claiming that the studs can function well on the newer versions of artificial grass, the removal of all the tiny nubs and studs that received high praise the world over is one of the first things that you notice.

In their stead is 11 conical studs laid out in nearly identical fashion to the old SprintFrame outsole that the F50 series made famous (which makes it no surprise that adidas has labelled it a “SprintFrame” on the PURECONTROL).

While the adidas ACE 16+ Purecontrol Paris FG - Core Black-White-Shock Blue has certainly turned the world’s head and fired up the imagination of any boot nerd, it won’t be until this boot makes it way into the populace that the true judgement is made.

Adidas might have just changed the future of boots, shoved their name right back into the thick with Nike, and solidified their choice to create and launch their revolution. On the flip side, adidas may have just created a boot that could hinder the evolution of the revolution.

We will bring you our verdict as soon as we get done testing, and we look forward to seeing how the world receives the PURECONTROL from once it hits player’s feet.
