Notes - Elite-level X 15+boots released by Adidas in 2016 as a new range designed for the modern player who likes to make an impact in the final third. These revolutionary boots are designed using Adidas X-CAGE technology that is made to stabilize and protect the foot while moving at speed, while an X-CLAW stud configuration allows for unpredictable movement.. The upper is designed with a three-layer X-SKIN upper that gives lightweight feel and on this Superlight model, a TPU shine-through material that creates an X-RAY effect. Adidas have incorporated the use of a techfit collar that offers a compression fit for maximum comfort and compression fit that restricts unwanted movement inside the boot. The special moulded stud configuration has been engineered with several moulded studs to provide traction on both artificial and firm ground surfaces. This SL edition of the X 15 was used by several players at Euro 2016, including Gareth Bale who starred in Wales remarkable run to the semi-finals before a 2-0 defeat to eventual winners Portugal.
