To look at, the adidas ACE 16+ Purecontrol Space Craft boot is a thing of golden beauty, a boot worthy of being kept in a vault rather than a locker. To wear them is a different story, you've gotta be a 24 carat world-beater to pull off these podium pearlers.
Launched as part of the adidas Limited Collection, the adidas Space Craft football boots drops in minimal numbers from September 15 in both ACE 16+ Purecontrol and X 16+ Purechaos editions. Only a handful of times per season does a boot launch have that extra element of hype and the Space Craft has that and more with it's quite literal out-of-this-world design, inspired by reflective spacecraft material and the darkness of space. If you've got the ability to back these up then good effing luck to you, son. If you haven't, then you'll need more than luck.
The adidas Space Craft gold and black body kit is designed to represent reflective spacecraft material juxtaposed against the darkness of space. To be honest, adidas can wrap it in whatever story they like, we're sold already. These are delicious. Throw in a cushioned k-leather material on the forefoot of the boot and what we're looking at here is an A-list, top-spec model of premium proportions, that look more expensive than my rent.
As for the tech, it's just that adapted k-leather panel on the forefoot that's different from the normal ACE 16+ Purecontrol technology. The Purecut laceless upper and lightweight Sprintframe still bring the Purecontrol innovation, they're just painted in a full fat creative coat of golden gaze. Straight up bling tings.
