Several weeks ago, before the release of adidas adiPure 11Pro, there were all posts talking about Nike football boots, exactly the Nike Vapor VIII. And it is nice that adidas newest soccer cleats have come into the public, bringing people more choices in picking up a brilliant pair of shoes for themselves.
The released adiPure 11Pro SL is available in official colorway of Black/Running White/Core Energy. This super lightweight of cleat announced 6.4oz, regarded as the lightest soccer shoes ever. The upper is crafted using the soft K-leather, with an ultra-thin layer of protection, called DuraCoating, providing an extra level of durability around the strike zone. What’s more, this cleat features the SprintFrame soleplate and miCoach performance tracking system.
This adiPure 11Pro Sl cleat looks clean, with a classic look that matches what we expect from the adiPure Soccer Shoes. And due to the soft Kangaroo leather combined with thin layer in upper, and the Adidas lightweight SprintFrame outsole, the boot becomes the lightest adiPure ever released on the market.
Compared to the former adiPure 11Pro, there are several distinct differences between them. The obvious one is weight, and the SL comes in at 1.8oz lighter because the regular adiPure 11Pro is featuring a Taurus leather. What’s more, the regular ones are using PU outsole with Traxion 2.0 stud configuration while the SL is featuring SprintFrame soleplate.
It is lucky that the SprintFrame soleplate does exactly what it is supposed to, offering players plenty of stability and dynamic release from the surface. However, by some reviewers handling with football boots commented that the performance of the PU outsole on the adiPure 11Pro exceeds that of the SprintFrame. On a positive, the soleplate does feature a cavity for miCoach technology, so if you have a SPEED_CELL, it is compatible with this boot. And finally, there are the obvious visual differences, with the SL holding a much more traditional look compared to the more modern regular version.
The adiPure 11Pro SL is at $250 on the market, while the regular ones are 100 bucks less. To some of adiPure fanatics, they do not think it is necessary to pay more only for K-leather. When look back to the former adipure cleats, the SL seems weak. Because the adiPure soccer shoes are traditional boots that provide players reliable performance of control. It is not and would not be the kind of F50 adiZero ones which are built for speed. Therefore, a combination of K-leather in upper and PU outsole of 11Pro will be an advanced design and will enjoy greater popularity.
