Adidas X 18.1 delivers impressive in-field performance
Not only is it crafted for impressive performance, but this soccer cleat also boasts of its bold and stylish aesthetics that are sure to catch some attention.
One of the highlights of this Adidas soccer cleat is its Speedmesh upper. This upper is made from a revolutionary stretch material that gives superior lockdown and stability.
It also delivers a minimal feel that allows for speed. Moreover, the material also ushers in a close fit that gives its users a more natural sensation and movement for improved maneuverability.
Some purchases observed that this Adidas soccer cleat has very little padding protection for the foot. One player mentioned having a hard time putting the shoes on because of its narrow fit.
Takes time to break in
This seems to be a very similar complaint to the Nemeziz 18.1 FG. These shoes take quite some time to break in, as noticed by a few commenters.
Another feature of this soccer cleat is its low-cut Clawcollar design, which frees up the ankle for better mobility.
Gives a firm lockdown
This model is also equipped with traditional laces that keep the fit snug without being overly restraining. Additionally, a central tongue aids in cushioning ball contact areas of the midfoot.
For added stability, this low-top soccer cleat employs a molded and seamless 3D heel cap. This benefits wearers best during acceleration as it helps give a firm lockdown on the foot for a more secure footing.
More lightweight feel
Adidas has also fitted this speed cleat with a Speedframe outsole. This sole unit significantly reduces the weight of the foot for a more lightweight feel.
On its soleplate is a combination of conical aluminum and arrowhead-shaped TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) studs. These studs work well in penetrating through the soft ground pitch for better grip.
Provides added stability
The Adidas X 18.1 Soft Ground can be availed in sizes 6 to 13 in men’s version. It comes in a standard width and is known to fit true to size.
Players can expect a snug and lightweight feel from this soccer cleat owing to its stretchable and form-fitting Speedmesh upper. The fit is further reinforced by a full-lace fastening while a 3D molded heel provides added stability.
Helps boost acceleration
The base of this soccer cleat is lined with a Speedframe outsole that works to reduce the cleats overall weight. Aside from added comfort, the minimal weight also helps boost acceleration.
For traction, the sole unit employs the use of a combination of six conical aluminum studs and five arrowhead-shaped TPU studs. These cleats are strategically positioned to aid in executing quick pivots on the soft ground pitch.
Better ball control
The upper of the Adidas X 18.1 Soft Ground utilizes a stretchable Speedmesh material. Showing much flexibility, the material hugs to the form of the foot for a snug yet non-restraining fit. It also ushers in a close ball feel for better manipulation of the ball.
The upper is set in a low-cut Claw collar design that allows improved mobility of the ankles as well as better stability. As its name suggests, this collar resembles that of a claw as it extends at the heel and midfoot area to secure the foot.
Adidas X 18.1 Soft Ground offers a form-fitting wrap
Additionally, the cleat relies on a traditional lace-up closure to reinforce a form-fitting wrap. Meanwhile, a basic tongue lightly pads the midfoot, particularly those areas that come in contact with the ball.
This soccer cleat comes in a Solar Yellow/Core Black/Footwear White colorway. It weighs 201 grams.
