adidas adiZero 5-Star Eastbay Exclusive

words // Nick Engvall

The adidas adiZero line has become synonymous with ultra-lightweight performance. The adiZero 5-Star football cleat takes that approach to a whole new level. This Eastbay-exclusive Metallic Gold colorway is just one of the many color choices from adidas Football for the coming season.

At just 6.9 ounces, the adidas adiZero 5-Star is about as light as it gets, and just as it is with all other adiZero designs, lighter is faster. Utilizing SprintSkin technology that has become almost standard in their basketball line, adidas has been able to reduce weight and keep the 5-Star stable and supportive. The 5-Star also uses Sprint Frame technology to bring a balance between speed and stability. While the TraXion stud configuration makes the most of of the TPU outsole by giving you the ultimate in traction and acceleration. A molded insole provides cushioning and teams up with a heel cup design that keeps you comfortably locked in, no matter how fast you are.

When it comes to performance, light weight is always one of the most important aspects of nearly anything. The adidas adiZero line has done about as good of a job addressing this in the past couple of years as anyone could, especially when it comes to cleated footwear. Take, for example, the adidas adiZero F50 we saw throughout the World Cup, the adiZero Diamond King baseball cleat, or the adiZero Scorch football cleat. Each pushed the limits of what was thought to be possible for how low you can go when it comes to the weight of your cleats.

Most recently, we got a glimpse at the adiZero 5 Star as it was introduced to players at the All American Bowl. The players’ reactions said it all. These are light.

As the lightest football cleat ever created, at 6.9 ounces, the adidas adiZero 5 Star will set the pace for football cleats. Later this spring, as it becomes time to prepare for next season, Eastbay will have a number of exclusive colorways available. One colorway that seems to outshine the rest is this limited edition Metallic Gold and Black colorway of the adiZero 5 Star.

Look for the adiZero 5 Star to be available in April at Eastbay.

adiZero 5-Star Blows Up All-American Bowl

words_Cheryl Mathis

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. You’ll also find white/light maroon and white/forest only at Eastbay.

The all-stars who were working out for the US Army All-American Bowl were rather star-struck by the 5-Stars. Take a look:
