adidas Send Mo Salah and Viv Miedema into the World of Rick and Morty for X SPEEDPORTAL Boot Launch

Faster in all dimensions.

July 19th 2022

adidas have linked up with Rick & Morty to unlock a whole new dimension of speed with the introduction of the X SPEEDPORTAL – the latest innovation from its X speed boot franchise.

Every detail of X SPEEDPORTAL has been custom built for the fastest ballers in the game whilst offering premium comfort – with adidas bringing together two of their star athletes into the world of Rick & Morty to showcase the boot’s mutlidimensional speed.

First introduced in 2020 on adidas’s game-changing X GHOSTED boot, adidas’s innovative SPEEDFRAME technology has been updated with a lightweight sole plate designed for intergalactic acceleration. The boot also comes complete with a stud design that gives players grip to get moving in any direction and a top-spec SPEEDSKIN 2.0 is a laceless lightweight upper for step in comfort, more direct ball contact and creating a seamless connection between boot and foot.

The boot arrives with an original animation featuring Mo Salah and Vivianne Miedema, as they join the experiment with the possibilities of speed with the X SPEEDPORTAL model.
  
In the film, the animated world meets the real world as Rick and Morty experiment with the possibilities of multi-dimensional speed using X SPEEDPORTAL, with a little help from Mo Salah and Vivianne Miedema. The full campaign video can be watched via the Adult Swim YouTube channel here. 
 
“This 90 second short is as funny as anything Rick and Morty and as fast as whatever Rick must have put into this boot,” said Michael Ouweleen, president of Adult Swim. “It’s a collaboration that could only happen in a multiverse, and Rick, Morty, Mo Salah and Vivianne Miedema are the (fever) dream team you never knew you needed to see.” 
  
As part of adidas’ journey to help end plastic waste, X SPEEDPORTAL is the first X-series boot to contain zero virgin polyester. Furthermore, at least 50% of the boot’s upper is made with recycled materials, with no compromise to performance.

The boot arrives in a Portal Fluid Green colourway and will be available to cop from July 19 via adidas.com, and selected adidas stores. Get a closer look at the model below.
