After making a bold Solar Yellow statement with the inaugural launch of the Ace and X, adidas has gone with a more traditional look for their first paint job for the new silos. The new looks are predominantly black and will be well received by purists.
The Ace 15.1 is a 2-tone black with the 3D Control Web of the forefoot a matte finish and the heel in a gloss finish. The look is given a modern look with metallic silver used for the 3-Stripes and on the adidas Performance logo on the heel.
The cleat stays true to its original colorway with a modest dash of Solar Yellow used on the studs of the forefoot.
The X 15.1 follows the trend with all black upper and use of Solar Yellow for the adidas Performance logo on the heel as well as a unique pointillism technique used on the X-Cage on the lateral and medial sides of the cleat.
The Ace 15.1 and X 15.1 are part of the adidas #bethedifference campaign challenging players to join the soccer revolution as playmaker or game changer. Which are you?
