4 reasons not to buy

  • A good number of users perceived the cleats to be too small for their regular sizes. They ended up reordering a different size.
  • Some users think that the shoe is narrow, and it made them feel uncomfortable.
  • A couple of users noticed that the insole is not stable and caused their foot to slide to the sides. One reviewer pointed out that the instability may also be due to the heel’s shallow fit.
  • One reviewer did not like the extra seam found on the forefoot as it creates a bump that affects ball contact.

Bottom line

The turf version of Nemeziz Tango 17.3 just proved that it can be at par with the powerful cleats in the Nemeziz series. The signature Agility Bandage and Torsion tapes produced fit and comfort admired by many. Its unique design is also one of its highlights making it an attractive shoe inside and out. The hard rubber outsole seals the deal with its aggressive traction on turf surface. Considered to be a low-end model, it also has its fair share of flaws. Majority of it has something to do with its narrow fit. Overall this silo delivers what it is expected from its influential series.

Features of the Adidas Nemeziz Tango 17.3 Turf

  • The Nemeziz Tango 17.3 Turf embodies the prominent trademark features of the Nemeziz series. For one, its entire body is wrapped with 360 Torsion tapes known for providing an exceptional compression fit.
  • The Agility Bandage present in its firm ground version is also seen bordering the turf shoes opening. The said feature creates a Dual Lock collar look similar to Messi’s Nemeziz Tango 17.3 Turf and is equally intended to provide ankle comfort.
  • Agility rubber is the primary component in the outsole. It is deemed the most viable to work with short-bladed synthetic fiber surface. Adidas promises explosive moments with this soleplate set up with its outstanding turf grip. It may not be as light as other outsole material, but it produces noteworthy protection from slippage

Fit and sizing

The Nemeziz Tango 17.3 Turf is available in men’s version from sizes 6.5 to 13.5. The textile fabric used in upper allows for average adjustment in achieving the desired fit. It gives a padded feel that aims to produce a barefoot sensation. Central laces are positioned under a stretchable fabric to provide more freedom of movement.


A prominent zigzag pattern is seen in the middle of the rubber outsole and is surrounded by irregularly shaped small studs. These studs are constructed specifically for abrasive surfaces such as turf and artificial grass. Proper turf traction is guaranteed with its size. These small numerous studs are not designed to work with firm ground.


A textile-based material is wrapped around the forefoot, midfoot and heel area while 360 Torsion tapes are glued to the sides for lateral and medial stability. Compared to mesh, the textile fabric is thicker but is built for durability.

Small embossed dots are noticeable in the forefoot area that is similar to Adidas Non-Stop Grip texture. All upper components are designed with the signature Nemeziz stripes.

To complement the look, a striped Agility Bandage is placed in the opening to serve as ankle support while an internal plastic counter is set for the heel.

A V-cut is formed going from the ankle area to the heel, positioned as a design and functional element. With this kind of opening, one will find it easy to slip on.

Laces are in the central area and are supported by an elastic fabric for compression fit. The insole is partially glued but is removable.
