adidas to “revolutionise football” with new boot as worn by Defoe



With the World Cup set to kick-off, players from all around the world, including Tottenham’s Jermain Defoe will be looking to shine on the biggest stage of all.

adidas have claimed to have revolutionised the football boot with the new adidas F50 adiZero, at only 165grams it is the lightest boot ever made and it is set to transform the beautiful game. The boots combine ultra light materials with core stability that will allow players to travel at light speed. Lionel Messi, the best player in the world, will wear this new innovation at the forthcoming 2010 FIFA World Cup as he aims to set the world alight.

Aubrey Dolan, Senior Product Manager for adidas Football comments “Players like Lionel Messi consistently told us they wanted boots that would enable them to be faster. Players wanted to be first to the ball, so we decided that the best way forward was to make a lightweight product which could be used at the highest level.”

The F50 adiZero will be worn by players during the 2010 FIFA World Cupâ„¢. The chameleon purple, white and electricity boot will be worn exclusively by Lionel Messi with Steven Pienaar (South Africa), Jozy Altidore (U.S.A), Shunsake Nakamura (Japan), Salomon Kalou (Ivory Coast), Arjen Robben (Holland) and Lukas Podolski (Germany) wearing the sun, black and collegiate gold colourway and David Villa (Spain), Samir Nasri (France), Jermain Defoe (England) and Johan Vonlanthen (Switzerland) wearing the black and sun version.

The black/sun yellow colourway and the sun yellow/black/gold colourway will hit retail on May 24th 2010 in all adidas Sport Performance stores, as well as at leading e-retailers and selected sports retailers around the world. The Chameleon boot will go on sale on July 12th 2010.
