Unlocking a fresh dimension of lightweight speed, adidas have unveiled the new generation X Speedportal as part of the Game Data Pack that’s being worn at Women’s EURO 22 and will remain on pitch for the kick off of the men’s 22/23 season across Europe. 

With the help of the universe’s most brilliant scientist, Rick Sanchez, and his grandson, Morty Smith, adidas unlock new dimensions of speed for the players of Earth with the introduction of X SPEEDPORTAL – the latest innovation from its X speed boot franchise.


Building on a legacy of adidas speed boots every detail of the X Speedportal football boots has been designed for the fastest players whilst remaining supremely comfortable, helping them unlock speed in all dimensions. 

First introduced in 2020 on adidas’s game-changing X GHOSTED boot, adidas’s innovative SPEEDFRAME technology has been updated with a lightweight sole plate designed for unreal acceleration. The all-new multidimensional stud design gives players grip to get moving in any direction. 


With so much speed, players need a boot that’s also stable, supportive, and keeps the foot locked in place. For this, adidas has created a new high-speed stability system which provides support, fit, and lockdown. The boot features a stability wing and support cage which keeps players feet locked in so they can play with absolute freedom when moving fast and changing direction.

Finally, the top-spec (P+) boot’s outer SPEEDSKIN 2.0 is a laceless lightweight upper for step in comfort and more direct ball contact. Designed to provide comfort for the full 90, the new SPEEDSKIN 2.0 will be available in laceless (P+) and laced (P1) models, creating a seamless connection between boot and foot.

As part of adidas’ journey to help end plastic waste, X SPEEDPORTAL is the first X-series boot to contain zero virgin polyester. Furthermore, at least 50% of the boot’s upper is made with recycled materials, with no compromise to performance.

The full Game Data Pack is completed by colour updates to the adidas Predator Edge and COPA Sense silos as the Three Stripes kick off the 22/23 season in a blast of unmissable colour.
