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.
