Bottom line

Belonging to the Adizero collection, the Adidas Adizero 9.0 is engineered to be among the lightest, and fastest cleats from the brand.

Sporting a revamped cleat configuration, the football spike features a 360-degree grip (preventing slips from all directions).

Adidas Adizero 9.0 vs 8.0: What’s new?  

  • No longer employs a sock-like closure around the ankle
  • Redesigned cleat construction for multi-directional traction (disables unwanted forward, backward, or sideways movements)
  • Added foam around the ankle collar for a plusher envelopment
  • Re-engineered upper for a more sleek and fashion-forward look 

Adizero 9.0: Who is it for? 

With its construction, the Adizero 9.0 from Adidas is ideal for beginning or veteran athletes with the following positions: 

  • Running backs
  • Quarterbacks
  • Defensive backs
  • Wide receivers 

What makes it a standout?  

Aggressive surface grip. Similar to the Adidas Adizero 5-Star 7.0 X Primeknit, the Adizero 9.0 employs Sprinstuds that dig into the field for maximum stability. 

Flexibility. Responsible for this is the football cleat’s SprintFrame plate, creating more freedom of movement. On the one hand, it also sports a blend of lightness and stiffness, integral for a heightened pace. 

Comfort. With the mesh upper of the Adidas cleat, airflow and a foot-conforming wrap are generated.
