What is really interesting about this shoe is that while it's a takedown it features an upper that I actually like more than the top-end X 17.1.
Features of the Adidas X 17.2 Firm Ground
- The Adidas X 17.2 features the TechFit construction upper. This soft material provides a snug fit and comfortable feel right out of the box.
- Adidas incorporated a knitted top workpiece to offer a sock-like construction on the ankle for excellent lockdown.
- This football boot also features a flexible soleplate and stud pattern that are designed primarily for dry, natural grass. The sole plate is made of TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane) plastic material that adapts to the movement of the foot.
Fit and sizing
The Adidas X 17.2 Firm Ground is offered in men’s sizes 7 to 13 and women’s sizes 5 to 11. The men’s version of this football shoe fits true to size, while the women’s version has a slightly narrower fit.
The Adidas X 17.2 sole plate is made of a lightweight TPU plastic material. It provides decent flexibility in the forefoot area. From the midfoot backward, the boot offers a sturdy flex especially helpful for push-off motions from long runs.
The stud pattern is composed of four slightly conical-shaped studs under the heel, six in front, and one in the middle. It offers excellent traction, acceleration, and support on natural grasslands.
The Adidas X 17.2 Firm Ground uses the TechFit technology which is a dynamic compression material that molds to the shape of the foot. It provides a secure fit as well as a closer feel of the ball.
The entire upper of the Adidas X 17.2 Firm Ground is made of a soft neoprene material covered with a thin layer of polyurethane (PU) acting as wet control component. The shoe also has embossed dots, called the Non Stop Grip (NSG) technology, all around the upper to ensure a good grip on the ball even on rainy days.
Internally, the Adidas X 17.2 Firm Ground is padded with a soft, synthetic suede material for a great in-shoe feel. It also has a fully removable insole with a mesh liner on top.
The heel area has an internal counter and the signature S-curve design, which is also found in higher models of the X 17 line. The curved design lessens the tension of the Achilles tendon.
The shoe has the same lacing system as the Adidas X 17.1. Five pairs of nylon lace holders are found at the center of the upper. The full lace-up closure offers additional lockdown.
