adidas PureChaos Comfort
Similar to a lot of adidas football boots the PureChaos provide a snug fit around the foot. Therefore, the first time trying on can be difficult to get on, however after the break in period the boots give a little and conform to your foot shape.
Perhaps not best for the wide footed players.
Your ankle fits into place by micro dots that sit in inside the boot. These helps to keep the foot secure against the upper to reduce movement.
adidas PureChaos Performance
The PureCut Upper is made from a pliable synthetic material which covers the laces improving touch and the strike zone. Control and friction are enhanced further by the Non-Stop Grip which lines the outside of the boot. This comes into play when dribbling at high speed.
What’s inside the PureChaos
The toe area is lined with a thin foam layer, which adds extra support and comfort when striking the ball.
What about the adidas PureChaos Laces?
Although the adidas PureChaos looks like just another adidas laceless boot, there is a lacing structure hidden under the upper layer. You can wear the without the laces, due to the Techfit collar and snug upper construction.
However having the laces adds an extra tight fit, to give you all the confidence you need in the boot. So its a case of tightening the laces and tucking them under the sleeve, creating a clean striking area.
Beneath the adidas PureChaos
adidas have taken inspiration from the adiZero soleplate, by including the SprintFrame to the PureChaos boot. However, this time around the stud shapes are angled and have a curved central blade. Although not advertised these boots perform well on both artificial ground and firm ground, therefore you get two surface options for your money.
PureChaos X 16+ TechFit Collar
The improvements to the adidas Techfit Collar have made it more competitive with Nike’s Dynamic Fit Collar. Using a thicker material which stretches and provides a locked-in feel around the ankles. The collar styling takes its inspiration from the PrimeKnit 2.0 by adding extra support for the Achilles area, although the curve design flows with the shape of your ankle for extra comfort.
