With only 299 pairs, already sold out, the limited edition Adidas Adizero 99g is the world’s lightest ever football boot.
Inspired by the lightweight textile material used by NASA and weighing just 99 grams, the revolutionary technology is explained in this video from Adidas product manager Hazim Kulak on Gameday Plus.
An ultra-thin sole plate and unique stud configuration along with weather resistant materials that are unaffected by conditions so that they will always weigh just 99g. An engineered skeleton gives extra protection.
Originally presented to the world as a concept model back in 2013 took two years to develop. Players such as Karim Benzema and David Alaba put the boots through rigorous testing during the development phase.
