adidas Football has officially unveiled its Turbocharge collection featuring on pitch ACE 17+ PURECONTROL and X 16+ PURECHAOS; the continuation of a journey which started with the Red Limit campaign under the ‘Stadium to Street” umbrella in November 2016.
The Turbocharge ACE 17+ PURECONTROL features a PURECUT Sock System – designed to lock the foot in place while adjusting to complex movements – and a 360 degree fully PRIMEKNIT upper to ensure zero wear-in time. The boot also features the iconic adidas BOOST sole to deliver unrivalled energy return with every step.
The Turbocharge X16+ PURECHAOS designed for the game’s fastest players- features a PURECUT sock system, which sees laces hidden under an upper layer for a more secure fit. It has a thin layer of raised dots applied to the upper for NON STOP GRIP (NSG) giving players unrivalled levels of control and a SPRINTFRAME outsole to create stability during high-speed changes of direction.
The Turbocharge will be worn on-pitch from 31st March by adidas global athletes and 1st April in South Africa. Players donning the ACE17+ PURECONTROL in South Africa will be Thulani Hlatshwayo, Travis Graham and Tebogo Mokoena amongst others, with the X16+ PURECHAOS worn by the likes of Phakamani Mahlambi, Liam Jordaan, Thabo Matlaba, Daine Klate and Riyaad Norodien.
