The Design Process Behind the adidas ACE15 & X15 Football Boots (Video)

adidas gives us a couple brilliant videos detailing the design process behind their ACE15 and X15 football (soccer) boots. They didn’t actually mention any of the names of the people in the video, but I did find the commentary very interesting. Basically it consists of a couple British and German designers/engineers that sounded like evil Austin Powers villains who owned a footwear brand and subjected athletes to ‘tests’ in their super secret underground laboratory  taking us through some of the very interesting aspects of both of the boots.

From the ACE15’s 3D engineered CONTROL WEB upper and a whole host of very cool sounding features on the X15 boot (X-SKIN, X-CLAW, X-CAGE & TECHFIT; seems like adi is stepping up their naming game), the video showcases the process that went into creating these boots and all their innovative features.

Check out the in-depth videos, below.

(BTW I’m half German, so I may have slightly offended myself in this article)
