“X GHOSTED was a major breakthrough for us in helping players unlock new levels of linear speed,” said Ben Herath, VP Design, adidas Football. “But through our research when developing the next iteration of adidas’ fastest football boot, the team were led by this idea of merging the physical and mental. So, we’ve combined the very best in adidas performance technology with a deep understanding of the speed needs of the modern game – X Speedflow supports instant speed, radical agility and instinct with the aim of creating the space for players to reach a true state of ‘flow’”.
