Adidas X 16+ Purechaos FG Silver MetallicCore BlackSolar Red
This one comes as somewhat of a semi-surprise release. A fresh take on the modern X series from adidas, and this one has an even more interesting twist with a lace covering synthetic NSG upper. There are also some other modifications through the ankle collar that should take this one to the next level. One of my key areas of interest is with the general fit and how tight they are going to be across the foot.
Breaking In and Comfort
The most important thing to note about PURECHAOS is that they are designed to fit very snug, and they need to be in order to really fulfill their functionality. For the majority of players that wear them, the first time out will be a challenge – just expect it! In order for the upper materials to loosen and mold to your foot shape, their is a certain adjustment period that you just need to go through. Some players might be lucky enough to have them fit out of the box, and they also probably have a very narrow foot; I wasn’t one of those players. Instead, the first wear was a struggle and I changed out after maybe 15 minutes. It just felt like several areas of my foot were cramping as my feet adapted to the security of the boot. Over the following few days, I wore them while coaching and although they were still not properly molded, they got better with each wear. At this point, they feel really comfy and I’ve worn them through several 90 minute games without any issue.
