adidas Ace 16.1 CT

This is going to be the TOP end model in the Ace line with the surname 16.1 CT, and some characteristics that we already saw in other two models: Ace 15.1 Boost and Ace 15.1 CT.

The upper has suffered a huge modification with a clear goal, to provide a comfortable shoe with excellent touch with the ball. The upper has been built with their new material, PrimeMesh, which figures 3 layers of synthetic leather combined with woven materials which ath the same time offers the shoe beter ventilation. Another new element in this design is the tongue which has been built with Monotongue technology to offer the best possible fit.

The heel counter is an extension of the tongue and has been designed with that tsame woven material to make the Ace 16.1 CT lighter. In the other hand we can see that the midsole features an EVA layer almost in the entire urface of the shoe to provide it with perfect cushioning against all kind of impacts, combined with Boost material only in the heel area with will make for a better energy return.

And here we can say, without a doubt, that adidas has done pretty good maintaining the midsole , with the EVA material and the adiPRENE® insertions in the heel area that will provide a better cushioning against impacts and the outsole with "Hi-Grip" technology, that makes for a better traction.
