Adidas ACE 16+ Purecontrol Primeknit

Earlier this year, Adidas released a laceless soccer cleat that changed the way soccer players think about ball control.

2016 in professional soccer was the year of the Adidas cleat. Specifically, it was the year of the ACE 16+ Purecontrol Primeknit. While Lotto technically debuted the first laceless soccer cleat back in 2010 with the Zhero, it was made of plastic and was horribly uncomfortable. The ACE 16+ is the first laceless soccer cleat that is practical to wear and play in. The cleat makes use of Adidas’s Primeknit technology to hug your foot and offers a snug, performance fit without the laces. That’s about more than just dropping the bow knot — it actually changes the way players think about ball control. Look for it on the feet of pros like Manchester United’s Paul Pogba.
