CJ Spiller and Eric Berry wouldn’t lie to you– the adidas adiZero 5-Star is LIGHT, and even at a ridiculously tiny weight of only 6.9 oz., it’s making a huge impact among the athletes who are prepping for this weekend’s bowl games.

So what’s the big deal about the adidas adiZero 5-Star football cleat? It’s almost three whole ounces lighter than the #2 lightest cleat. For players looking for a speed explosion on the field, that’s quite the selling feature.

You’ll be hearing a lot more about them from us in the future, but here are some stats you can drool over right now: we’re carrying 14 colors of the 5-Star, 4 of those are exclusive to Eastbay, including the triple black and metallic gold/black colorways shown below.
