Storming the Chaos and Control party with creative confidence comes the next chapter of adidas Football. Nemeziz tears the hinges off the football innovation door with assured agility and a disregard for how a football boot should be perceived. The revolution recharged.
Nemeziz is a completely new concept from adidas that will sit alongside the ACE and X silos, replacing the signature Messi silo in the process. Built for the most agile of attackers it's no surprise that Leo Messi will headline the Nemeziz and he'll be joined by other attacking flair including Bayern's Renato Sanches and Liverpool's Roberto Firmino.
Now pay attention cos this is some next-level stuff coming up. The key design feature of adidas Nemeziz 17+ 360 Agility takes inspiration from the process of taping, for increased stability and agility. Taping comes from a common ritual in ancient battle for both physical and mental strength. Each element of Nemeziz has be designed to suit players whose agility helps them succeed on pitch, by delivering security, support and adaptability.
Here's how the tech looks: First up we've got a unique AGILITYBANDAGE that features TORSIONTAPES technology to keep the foot locked down and deliver ultimate fit, whilst a dual-lock collar secures the ankle in place to enable that explosive change of direction. Next up there's the TORSIONFRAME outsole that features an ultra-lightweight construction and TORSIONRIBS to provide dynamic push off support; a key feature for agile movement. The new AGILITYKNIT 2.0 interlocking yarn structure provides a soft direct touch and a lightweight adaptable feel.
The launch colourway will kick off the adidas Dust Storm pack which will be made up by the ACE and next-gen X in the coming weeks. Messi will switch into the Nemeziz for the Copa del Rey final on May 27th and there may well be a Champions League Final appearance too, depending on player uptake.
The brains behind the Nemeziz is further explained by Sam Handy, Vice President of Design, adidas Football; “Part of our design philosophy is to look back to help us look forward, something we’ve held true to with the design of Nemeziz. The idea of torsion and taping is not a new idea, it's present in some of our classic products and in other fields, such as Martial Arts. Our design for this product was taking that idea, of the relationship between torsion, support and agility, and using it to support the most disruptive players in the game. Our main goal is to provide the athlete with tools to maximise their own creativity, and with this product we feel we have provided that.”
