The X range, in every form has an undoubted attack-minded theme and this is enhanced by the thin and lightweight synthetic materials which make the boots ready for the fast paced performances of modern day football. The X 16 silo is headlined by some of adidas' and football's biggest talents including Gareth Bale, Luis Suarez, Marcelo, and Karim Benzema. The X by adidas, originally launched in the Summer of 2015, is now in its third generation of construction, it appears to get a revamp at the same time every year, with the X18 revealed in time for the 2018 Champions League final.

Continuing the speed-theme from the F50, adidas' X 15 was their first boot to feature a Techfit collar to increase a sock-like fit which is also a feature retained upon the follow-up X 16 & X 17 models. Boasting a truly modernistic design the upper of the X uses a thin yet soft synthetic upper similar to the previous X-Skin example however also incorporates a slashed-like graphic for a striking design and also increased friction upon the ball for close control and ball manipulation. Whereas original X 15.1 featured an aggressive X-Claw sole plate, the updated X18 & X 17.1 provides tried and tested acceleration through the highly popular Sprintframe outsole.

Whilst the early X boots incorporated Primeknit materials, the most notable feature of adidas' X is the Purecut lace cover found on the 17+ Purespeed to enhance a cleaner ball touch & strike. The no-tongue and raised collar system donned Techfit of the X 16.1 is similar to what is seen on the Phinish and Vapor silos by Nike as both brand's look for the ultimate in lockdown and responsiveness. The design of the X 17.1 holds certain reminiscence to that of American football cleats offering raised ankle support. The X 18.1 range offers scaled down alternatives including the 18.2, 18.3 and 18.4 ranges for club, youth and entry level footballers.
