      Adidas shoes

      I normally buy only Adidas shoes. For some reason they really seem to suit me while sometimes other brands just aren't as comfortable. I think Adidas is a good brand especially when it comes to football shoes and a big plus is that the shoes aren't that expensive compared to some other brands. And at least with Adidas I know I buy quality and that the shoes will last me for some time.

      While it's not the most important element of a shoe of course looks are important to and that's also the reason why I went for these shoes in the first place. When I saw them in the shop they really appealed to me and they stand out. The bottom of the shoe has a silver/grey color as well as the plastic bubbles. The rest of the shoe has a gold color and a large part is white. Of course the shoes also have the well-known black Adidas stripes on the front. They are a bit different looking from your typical shoes but that is why I like them.

      Looks aren't of course the most important thing about the shoes. How they feel and play on the field is more important. The shoes feel very comfortable but also are flexible which is very important. They move along as you are running and walking making it feel like you are not even wearing shoes. What they do improve is the control you have on the field and gives you more grip. From standing still to suddenly have to run is no problem and during running and having to do sudden movements they give me grip and control.

      Adidas hasn't disappointed me with these shoes at all and for that reason I love the brand. They have a lot of experience with shoes and that shows. It's like they know what's important and while playing football control is very important. Not only with the running but also controlling the ball. I give these shoes five stars.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Not as good as they Adipure but a good boot for the price you are paying.

      The Adidas Nova is inspired by the 70's (like I said before retro is in). These boots combine "old school looks" with "new school" technology.
      Overview
      *made from real leather
      *asymmetrical loop lacing for fit and comfort
      *The out soles are made of a TPU plate (TPU is basically a material that is lightweight weight, durable and is a good shock absorbent) which provides high stability
      *Made with a Moulded EVA innersole and a synthetic upper. (EVA innersole is an innersole specially designed to enhance comfort). is also washable.
      Summary
      The AdiNova's are Adidas cheaper version of the Adipure's and represent value for money. However these are actually quite a good boot and are definitely excellent value for money; Unlike the cheap versions of the predators or the F50'S (F10'S) which really are a cheap boot.
      Verdict
      Not as good as they Adipure but a good boot for the price you are paying.

      Disadvantages

      Really good boot for the price, basically an adi-pure with downgraded leather.

      I bought these boots at the beginning of the season when the local pitches were still rock solid from the summer and they were a treat to wear, i don't have particularly wide or narrow feet and i bought them in my regular shoe size which gave a snug comfortable fit. The uppers are genuine leather of a decent quality which i found to be uncommon at this price range. However when the winter drew in and the pitches got softer i started using them for training on astro turf, previously i've used adidas copa mondial's on astro turf and they were great and given these boots share the same stud pattern i thought they would do the job, they did the job for two sessions then one of the back studs snapped off completetly at it's base! I'm guessing the quality of the moulded soles is not as good as the copa's and they do an astro turf specific adinova which would presumably do the job. Other than my possible abuse though they were a great boot and sports direct replaced them with the soft ground version which i now use regularly.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A restrained, toned-down all-rounder of a boot.

      Somewhere between flashy and functional, between Beckham and Beckenbauer, neither the bells-and-whistles of their Tunit range, nor the "sensible shoe" conformity of the basic equipment, Adidas' new AdiPure football boots look to cater to a kind of in-between market.

      White boots have long been the preserve of those who are good enough to get away with it (or at least think they are), quick enough to get away from the kicking that is traditionally punishment for indulging in coloured footwear. With the arrival of a rainbow of eye-catching boots on footballing feet, however, times are a-changing. Compared to lime green, neon orange and day-glo pink footwear, white suddenly seems quite restrained - and Adidas seem to have attempted to reflect this with a restrained, classically-styled boot with a few low-key modern touches.

      Visit the Adidas website, enter the boot room and behold the vast range of boots out there bearing the famed three stripes; hovering over each one will tell you which well-known player is proud to wear it. Steven Gerrard's feet bear Predators, Lionel Messi has a snazzy pair of Tunits - while these boots are sported by the Brazilian maestro Kaka.

      Well - kind of. The above boots are dubbed AdiNova, not AdiPure. They look almost identical - so what's the difference? Well, price most obviously. Where the top-of-the-range AdiPures will set you back around £100, their ostensibly very similar siblings come in at a more reasonable £40ish (In some stores, this may come down to around £30 - try Sports Direct). Of course "reasonable" is a very relative term; if the more expensive boot is longer-lasting and more durable than the cheaper one, the cost may work out as less in the long run.

      Adidas will usually do this, bringing out two or three versions of their most popular boots, catering for a range of budgets. In the past, the differences between top- and bottom-end incarnations have been noticeable, with the latter featuring the styling but not the finer details of the expensive boot. With these designs, however, there is less of an apparent demarcation; the boots are simple and straightforward, without some of the gimmicks of previous boots (the "fins" of the Predator series, for instance, used to "curl" the ball, making it move in the air after being struck). As such, there's less to leave out, and the two boots appear much the same.

      Very much a "classic" look, the boots are all-white leather, with a set of black stripes on the outside of each foot, the inside faces plain. The boots feature are a simple lace-up design over a more contemporary 'wrap-around' upper boot - as there is no tongue, the leather on the inner side continues over the top, parting once to allow for lacing. They are absent of any ridges or other markings on the leather, so it's all a very clean, classy piece of foot-housing. Available with soft-ground studs, firm-ground studs and blades, the boots are fine for 3G and grass surfaces, and reasonable on astro-turf.

      The new boots made their debut in a 4-1 defeat - however, playing the same team previously in my old boots, we lost 7-0; statistical proof of the four-goal difference they make! First impressions were very good - with the 'wrap-around' design of the top of the boot, the AdiNova is a snug, close fit, although there's enough 'give' in the leather that it's not constrictive. Some retailers suggest that you buy a half-size up from your normal fit to allow for this tightness, but I have naturally wide feet, and found no problems with my usual size; unless you like a particularly roomy boot, this shouldn't be an issue.

      Pleasingly for new footwear, there was minimal rubbing on first wearing - save for some abrasion right at the top of the upper foot, where the tongue would be, there was no discomfort. Continuing use of the boots has been similarly trouble-free and thus far tough-wearing - the pair seem to strike a good balance between being lightweight enough for speed, comfortable enough for regular wear and sufficiently well-built to withstand the knocks and strains that go with football.

      The clean, simple design of the boot is a factor practically as well as aesthetically. Free of gimmicks and adornments, the AdiNova has a large, smooth striking area on every surface. After years of wearing Predators and getting used to the ridges along the instep, this simpler boot was a slightly different experience - one tends to get a consistently good, clean strike, although I found my touch was slightly heavier. This may, though, be something which improves as I get used to the boot, and is likely more a reflection of my own deficiencies than any weaknesses in the product.

      How does it compare?

      On the whole, then, I'm very impressed with the AdiNova - so how does it compare to its more expensive sibling? My experiences are limited insomuch as I only own the cheaper pair, although prior to buying them, I tried out both, and have previously only owned top-of-the-range Adidas boots - so I can look fairly generally at both sides.

      As alluded to earlier, there are normal apparent differences between the 'proper' boots and their more affordable counterparts - the latter tend to be a bit plasticky and lack key features. However, in neither case is this true of the AdiNova. The main difference here is in the type of leather used - the top-range boots feature Kangaroo leather, which seems to be a little softer and more pliable; it is also said to be stronger than other leathers. Other than this, there are only a few cosmetic contrasts; an engraved metal stud one of these, the kind of thing unlikely to affect performance.

      In terms of whether the full-priced boot is worth it - I suppose it's all relative to one's needs, demands and budget. If you can afford the pricier boot, it's probably worth it; doubtless it's a better boot and should last longer, although I'm not sure it merits a £60-70 difference. The cheaper boot, the AdiNova, is a more than adequate alternative to paying top-dollar, and makes for a piece of stylish, comfortable footwear that's an excellent all-rounder. For all that, though, it's still a white boot. So you may yet get kicked; invest in some decent shin-pads as well.
