Notes - Pro-level boots produced Adidas from their popular F50 speed silo around in 2012. These boots use a high quality synthetic upper which also features Adidas 'Sprintskin' technology for optimal traction between the ball and foot, while also being the lightest F50 ever at just 165g. Built for speed, the boot is made with 'sprintframe' technology which moulds to the shape of the foot for a tighter fit for when moving at speed, while still providing protection and stability through the external heel counter at the rear. The outsole is built with an Adidas 'miCoach' slot which allows players to monitor their performance through inserting a miCoach chip under the insole's to analyse performance levels. The soleplate is made up of 11 moulded studs, configured for use on firm ground surfaces. Gareth Bale famously wore this model of the F50 adiZero when he scored his sensational late winner for Wales in a World Cup qualifier against Scotland in 2012.
