adidas really went hard with this “Blue Blast” thing. Having given every street,cage and pitch silo a blast of blue, it is only fitting that the Three-Stripes give their less popular silo some deserved attention.
The Ace 17.1 Leather is a microcosm of the modern day soccer boot landscape. While it’s brother, the ACE 17+ Purecontrol features adidas’ most progressive tech, the ACE 17.1 Leather employs more classic elements. Out is the high collar, lace-less upper and prime-knit toe-box. In are the laces and a seamless, k-leather vamp for unparalleled touch.The boots upper is blue with a white leather toe-box and “shock pink” accents on the adidas branding. The sole-plate aptly rounds off the boot as it matches the upper’s fade from blue to white.
Ironically The Ace 17.1 Leather is often over looked but with the “Blue Blast” treatment we have a feeling that won’t be the case for much longer. They are now available at adidas.com
