The shoe of choice for Salah, Son, Benzema, Messi... Perhaps there is nothing more to add. Or maybe there is: Adidas X is the ideal shoe for fast players, dribbling and changes of direction.

With a mesh upper that wraps around the foot, giving support and stability, Adidas X is a lightweight shoe that offers maximum sensitivity when touching the ball. The collar, lower than usual, keeps the foot firmly in the shoe but at the same time leaves the ankle free to move. A special feature of this shoe is that, when you put your foot in, there is a kind of suction that glues your foot to the shoe. Almost as if air were being expelled to maintain maximum contact and sensitivity. Two heel cushions have also been inserted to ensure that the foot does not slip inside the shoe.

It can be found in FG, SG and AG variants for different types of terrain.

Finally, a brief note on pricing: adidas Football uses .3 and .2 to define entry level shoes, while using .1 or + to define professional models. The technological differences between the entry level and professional groups are significant. 

The adidas X+ (the top of the range without laces) are the shoes worn by Heung-min Son (Tottenham Hotspur), Joao Felix (Chelsea), Achraf Hakimi (Paris Saint-Germain) and, in Serie A, by Rafael Leao (AC Milan), Federico Di Marco (FC Inter) and Ademola Lookman (Atalanta).

While the adidas X.1 are the shoes worn by Lionel Messi (Paris Saint-Germain), Karim Benzema (Real Madrid), Mohamed Salah (Liverpool), Julian Alvarez (Manchester City), Rapinha (FC Barcelona) and, in Serie A, by Angel Di Maria, Niccolò Fagioli, Arkadius Milik (FC Juventus), Caleb Okoli (Atalanta), Georginio Wijnaldum (AS Roma), Ciro Immobile, Felipe Anderson (SS Lazio), Giacomo Raspadori (SS Napoli) and many others.
