Who should buy the Adidas Ace 17.3 Firm Ground

Similar to its lower-tier predecessors, the Adidas Ace 17.3 Firm Ground utilizes PrimeMesh in its upper. Although it almost looks identical with the Ace 17.2, the 17.3 model made a few tweaks in its upper configuration. Combining the PrimeMesh with synthetic neoprene material, the soccer cleat aims to provide that sock-like fit and that superior touch that allows for great ball control. You'd be up for this pair if:

  • You've already experienced the Adidas Ace capablities, but would want a more budget-friendly option.
  • You're impressed by the Total Control technology of the outsole, and want to give these studs a try on any ground.

This type of outsole is the first to have a mixed Firm Ground (FG) / Artificial Ground (AG) configuration that is set with a lower stud height to enable more studs to touch the ball when handling.

Adidas' high-quality upper setup for Ace 17.3

The soccer cleat wears an innovative hybrid upper that integrates PrimeMesh and neoprene. PrimeMesh lines the front foot area while neoprene covers the rest of the foot, including the collar.
