adidas literally string together its innovative technologies in running and football by presenting the Strung+ football boot. The special edition Stripes release is based on the X Crazyfast+ but with significant influence from the Prime X Strung trainers. Prime X Strung has caused quite a stir in the running world, with it being so good it is now banned in competitions! And in some form it is now going to be present in football through the help of the brand’s speed boot silo.
Now, first things first. It does have that look of the X Crazyfast+ from the Crazyrush Pack because of the white base, bold black adi Stripes and lucid lemon accents slashed on the upper and protruded on the studs. The slight deviation from the Crazyrush colourway is the grey execution of the tongue and the soleplate. As it is based on the X Crazyfast+, adidas Strung+ has that central lacing system with the extended tongue finish and the responsive Speedframe outsole.
The star of the show is the upper, comprised here of the proprietary Strung technology. As the name of the material implies, the upper is made up of data-driven woven strings that are strategically densely threaded on some areas where structural stability is mostly needed. Despite the texture and looks telling otherwise, Strung upper has that thin one-piece feel because of the gluing process the strings go through.
