Critics may argue that Adidas was not the first to create laceless football boots. While that may be true, with Lotto earning credit for the first laceless release back in the early 2000s, the German sportswear giant was the only brand to create a radically functional design that will soon change the game. The Adidas Ace 16+ Purecontrol was the first high performance laceless football boot welcomed by the sport. It wore a unique and modern silhouette evident of Adidas innovative approach when it comes to product design.

Breaking down the laceless Adidas football boot

Best laceless Adidas football boots - March 2019

The Three Stripes fronted the laceless football boot revolution with their release of the Ace 16+ Purecontrol. Deemed as the “pinnacle of football boot technology”, this laceless Adidas football boot was a much-hyped debut that highlighted three key design elements that serve to replace the laces. These are intended for improved stability and better performance. Here we look into the key features of this prototype and how these features ultimately improve overall performance.

  • Thermoplastic Polyurethane Cage. Doing away with the conventional laces, this laceless Adidas football boot utilizes a TPU cage that keeps the midfoot in place. As it locks over the three stripes detailed around the middle part of the boot, it consequently mirrors Adi Dassler’s original intention of the stripes.
  • Primekit upper. This Adidas innovation has been tweaked to suit this boot’s laceless design. It combines open and loose knitted structures to form the upper of the Ace 16+ Purecontrol. The meticulous combination of the most premium yarns work to give a firm lock on the foot for the most excellent fit, without the need for laces. Additionally, the Primkenit has been treated with an extremely thin 3D layer, which provides increased friction between the ball and the shoe resulting in better ball control. This knit material is also used on performance basketball shoes.
  • Techfit locking system. Inside these laceless Adidas football boots, a techfit locking system hugs the foot in a snug wrap. This works to reinforce lockdown as well as to offer lateral stability, which is helpful when countering changes in direction. This detail also enhances control. As a  result, wearers get a glove-like fit with the closest possible touch because of the expanded surface area.

Laceless and leather: the modern Adidas football boot

Since the release of the first laceless Adidas soccer cleats, the brand has since produced more than a handful of similar models that continue to amaze players and shoe enthusiasts. These upgrades, so to say, are built on the design of the prototype boot but with newer specs and a few new upgrades. With its latest release, the brand mixes tradition with modern technology as it elevate the laceless game to a whole new level.

Adidas takes buttery K-leather and combines it with Primeknit and Fusionskin to compose the upper of the Copa 19+. The Fusionskin is a revolutionary upper technology that makes leather seamless and less permeable. The result is a liquid-like leather that fuses with knit to offer a distinct feel on the foot. Meanwhile, the leather creates an ultra-soft touch while giving a second-skin fit. The laminated seams across the foot also limit water uptake as well as better shape retention of the upper.

Additionally, this laceless Adidas football boot features a Purecut laceless strike zone for a clean and expanded surface area. The base sports an Exoframe outsole that ensures stability and excellent traction on firm ground surfaces.


Is there any laceless Adidas soccer cleats for turf and indoor?

Aside from their wide selection of firm ground laceless Adidas football boots, the brand has also come up with models suited for indoor courts and artificial turf. These models feature more or less similar innovations and technologies as their firm ground counterparts, with a few tweaks to make them more appropriate for use on turf and indoor pitches. Among these laceless Adidas football boots are the Predator Tango 18+, both in turf and indoor versions, and the Ace 16+ Ultraboost, which is also considered a lifestyle shoe.

What are the best reviewed laceless Adidas football boots?

There are quite a number of top-rated laceless Adidas football boots. The most recent releases from the brand have mostly been impressive, earning the approval of many fans. Among the top boots in the best-reviewed list are the Predator 18+ FG, the Predator Tango 18+ Trainers, and the Ace 17+ Purespeed FG.
