Who should buy the Adidas Adizero Primeknit

Adidas released the Adizero Primeknit to be a formidable game changer. You are likely to appreciate this release if:

  • you are an advanced football player who needs premium cleats
  • you like high, sock-like collars and snug fit
  • you are discerning about the visual aspect of your cleats 

Who should NOT buy the cleat

Because these cleats sell out like hot pies, it is really easy to miss a pair. Some of the solid alternatives to consider are the Nike Vapor Untouchable Pro 3 and the Nike Vapor Edge Pro 360.

Helps to level up your game

This Adidas cleat has lived up to the expectations of players with its overall performance on the field. Testers report that it indeed improves their dribbling and ball touch.

Reliable lockdown

The upper is made of Primeknit that securely wraps around the foot for a snug fit and support in areas where it's most needed. This iteration of the Adizero has the tallest collar of the series.

As one of the reviewers pointed out, you don't even need to further lace up the cleat after putting it on. That's how secure it feels.

Midfoot support

A lacing system that's anchored on the plate by Speed Spat ensures that the midfoot is cradled and well-supported even during the most aggressive movements.

Beastly traction of the Adizero Primeknit

The soleplate features Sprintstuds and a rotational traction zone, ensuring traction and control while in play. It is described as one of the most efficient traction patterns from Adidas.

Keeps you light on the feet

A good number of athletes have commented on how lightweight the boot feels throughout the game. "Felt like they weren’t even on," shares one of them.

Premium quality

You can expect a long life from this top-tier football cleat. Players who are hard on their shoes report that it has held up just fine. This refers to both the upper and the plate and studs of the shoe.

Adidas Adizero Primeknit is a looker

Adidas released the Adizero Primeknit in just a few colorways, but it sure does look good. You've got the original Cloud White/Silver Metallic, the Cloud White/Gold Metallic, and the black Marvel Black Panther. Be ready to receive plenty of compliments when donning a pair of these cleats.

As for the Marvel edition, it features an alternative bungee lacing system and is sold for an extra $10.
