On September 1, Notre Dame and Navy will open the college football season playing the Emerald Isle Classic in Dublin, Ireland. For the occasion, adidas has created an Irish Flag-inspired colorway of the adiZero Smoke Mid and Low cleats for the Fighting Irish to wear on the field. As of now, there has been no announcement of a special uniform, but it’s safe to assume adidas has that in their plans. Last season, they developed a retro look for Notre Dame to wear in the “Under The Lights” Game against Michigan.

Notre Dame last played in Ireland back in 1996, when they defeated Navy 54-27 at Croke Park. This summer’s game will be played at the new Aviva Stadium.

Holding rank as the lightest mid and low-cut football cleats on the market, the adidas adiZero Smoke features a SprintSkin upper with internal TPU that offers lightweight support and acceleration. The toe has been reinforced for added protection, while a molded PU sockliner gives long-lasting comfort. SprintFrame outsole construction uses geometry to offer the perfect balance between light weight and stability. The heel cup locks the foot in place, preventing the heel from slipping during games. An innovative TraXion stud shape provides maximum acceleration and multidirectional traction on synthetic and natural surfaces.
