Boot Review: Adidas x Ghosted

Swaz provides a hauntingly eloquent review of this issue's boot of choice

Look

Because of the translucent skin, you can basically choose your colour depending on what socks you wear, because they show through. I tried yellow ones and that worked quite well. I wonder what black ones would look like? Didn’t try that.

Feel

It’s a thin boot so you feel very in touch with the ball. Another thing: when you put them on, it’s like a vacuum: schluuup. They suck your foot in. That’s quite cool. Never experienced that before. And once you’re in, they feel very snug.

Control

When you’re dribbling, the control is really good because you know what the ball’s doing. They’re made for attacking players running at defenders. It’s a winger’s boot and it’s a speed boot.

Tech

It’s all technology on this boot, isn’t it? They’ve got a carbon-fibre plate on the sole and if you try and bend it, you can’t. (I always try and bend boots, it’s a fun pastime.) It makes them proper springy on the forefoot so when you want to start running, you’re in the right position to push off.

Swaz factor

They’re brilliant, I have to admit. Even though they’re not boots I’d usually buy, you have to admire them. Top marks.
