Benzema Football Boots

Dean Ariola

Karim Benzema currently wears a pair of X Crazyfast+. The striker used to wear the adidas F50 adizero before making the logical switch to the X in 2015. He is one of the few stars who gets to wear some of the special/limited releases for the adidas speed boots. With his 2022 Ballon d’Or win, he receives a commemorative signature pair that showcases a white base with golden spiral graphics all over the upper, and a chrome finish on the soleplate towards the heel to complete the regal look.

X Crazyfast+ Solar Energy

If you’re wondering what’s that boot Benzema wore sometime early 2024, it was the Solar Energy adidas X Crazyfast+. That was the laced boot that had a translucent, cutout upper, carried a predominantly bright yellow colourway with black adidas striping on the sides of the forefoot. The white soleplate had an orange plastic insert visible through the angular cutouts on the forefoot and mid. The yellow with black somehow jived with Al Ittihad’s kit colours too.

X Crazyfast+ Crazyrush

Benzema moved to the Saudi Pro League for the 2023/24 season. And he spent a significant time wearing the season-opening Crazyrush X Crazyfast+. The boot was marked by the predominantly white look, designed with black stripes and volt accents.

As hot as the hot pink of his X Ghosted was his recall to the French squad for the Euro 2021, where he remained influential for the team despite their R16 exit.
