Boot Class = Pro
Nowadays, it’s an all-round speed boot that you’re as likely to see on superfast full backs as centre forwards, offering a mix of lightweight stability, comfort, and a precision touch on the ball.
As with many modern speed boots, the key element is the soleplate, which has seen multiple revisions over the years, refining the setup to produce the best combination of support for balance and snapback for acceleration.
Some of the world’s fastest players have worn the X, from prime Gareth Bale to icons such as Mo Salah and Son Heung-min and next-gen superstars Gabriel Martinelli and Achraf Hakimi. Reckon you can catch them? You’ll need a pair of your own to stand a chance.
Firm Ground Football Boots
Many of the best players in the history of the game have trusted adidas football boots to help them reach their full potential, including Zinedine Zidane, David Beckham, and the one and only Lionel Messi.
The 3-Stripes’ pioneering outlook has seen them remain at the forefront of boot design ever since founder Adi Dassler first started making footwear in the 1920s.
From longstanding leather classics like the World Cup and Copa Mundial to more modern innovations like the all-conquering Predator, their boots are always built to combine comfort and performance.
The adidas range includes the X for speed, the Predator for control, and the Copa for touch. Whichever boot suits your style, whether you like to lace up or go laceless, you’ll find options available for every type of surface and every level of play.

Ground Type Guide
Selecting the correct sole plate for the surface you are playing on is crucial, not only for the performance and longevity of your football boots, but also to avoid the risk of injury.
Using an outsole that isn't designed specifically for the surface on which you are playing may cause premature wear and/or damage that will not be deemed as a fault of manufacture and will prevent the retailer accepting them for a refund or exchange.
Boots with Firm Ground soleplates are only to be used on natural short-grass surfaces that is firm underfoot but may be slightly wet.
Designed specifically for this playing surface, they offer acceleration, comfort and enhanced traction, dispersing stud pressure evenly across the foot.
FG soleplates are fixed (not removable) and are used worldwide; wetter countries tend to use them spring to autumn.
FG boots are not to be used on artificial ground (AG) surfaces as the construction is not designed for the extra friction.
FG boots used on AG surfaces will invalidate the manufacturer’s warranty.
