Soccer Locker Review: Paul Pogba’s New Red Limit ACE 17+ PURECONTROL
adidas has released its new Red Limit ACE 17+ PURECONTROL along with a short film featuring Paul Pogba that urges youth players to focus on creating their own path within the game. The new collection includes versions of the boot for all surface levels in order for athletes to showcase their skills anywhere they go.
The short film urges aspiring young soccer players to focus on creating their own path in the game, rather than following their heroes. A voiceover from a young player declares that he is not interested in emulating the style of the top players; he just wants their boots so he has the tools to create for himself.
The Red Limit ACE 17+ PURECONTROL features a 360 degree fully PRIMEKNIT upper to ensure zero wear-in time, in addition to being protected by an ultrathin NSG (Non Stop Grip) film to provide ultimate levels of grip.
The laceless PURECUT sock system eliminates overlays between the foot and the ball for ultimate control while the unique sock construction offers premium comfort.
The ACE 17+ PURECONTROL’s newest feature includes the introduction of adidas Running’s BOOST technology. The BOOST cushioning provides more energy than conventional midsoles and delivers unrivalled levels of comfort.
The Red Limit collection builds upon the launch of the Red Limit ACE 17+ PURECONTROL Cage version that features a PRIMEKNIT upper with a layer of NSG film to provide ultimate control.
A stretchable layer of TECHFIT material is structured between the black and red color blocks to optimize comfort, while the red EVA strip above the heel’s BOOST offers stability. Unlike the on-pitch version, the cage version features BOOST on the heel only, offering comfort, stability and energy return on a hard surface.
The ACE 17+ PURECONTROL Street version completes the Red Limit collection. The shoe features a sleek all-black colorway with red details and is predominantly developed with a PRIMEMESH material for a lifestyle-focused look.
Dean Lokes, Vice President of product adidas Soccer, said, “The Red Limit collection is the first time we’ve gone from the stadium to the street in the same collection. We’ve introduced a range of boots in on-pitch, cage and street silos so you can perform as well off the pitch as you can on it. The introduction of adidas’ leading BOOST technology highlights our constant desire to innovate within the sport and our endless drive to produce game-changing footwear for all types of soccer players; wherever they play the game”.
