This year adidas made football more black and white than ever.
Players were identified as one of two pure playing styles: the X player who causes chaos, and the ACE player who controls everything.
Those pure types of player came to define football in 2015, and now the ACE 15+ and X 15+ are available in a classic new black and white colour way to reflect the two distinct playing styles of the modern footballer, Sport-locker.net can reveal…
The ACE 15+ Primeknit features a stark white heel counter and collar padding, while the 3D control upper is in classic matt black.
The ground breaking stud configuration of the ACE 15+, designed for more traction for foot over ball moves, is picked out at the forefoot in vibrant pink highlights.
The X15+ Primeknit also has a black upper with the X-CAGE picked out in a camo style white and grey. There is chaos in the stealth colourway though, as the laces pop in flouro pink.
Defenders being shown a clean pair of heels will also catch a flash of colour against the black and white upper, with the adidas logo picked out in shock mint on the heel.
And of course, there’s synthetic versions of the colourway too!
