To celebrate Independence Day and America’s pastime, this adizero Afterburner 2017 pays tribute to the spirit of the holiday as adidas designers reminisced about the warm, sunny days of summer and the Fourth of July picnics from their childhood. The highlight of the day was an icy-cold popsicle enjoyed after a long day of playing in the sun. With those memories as inspiration, the limited edition adizero Afterburner ID4 features a melting popsicle theme that slowly fades from red into white and culminates with a blue heel and tongue. A wood popsicle stick-inspired badge sits atop the tongue and gold chrome stripes complete the look.
The popsicle theme continues onto the custom adizero sockliner while red and white striped lace tips add to the patriotic theme. A full-length LITESTRIKE EVA midsole provides comfort while a sparkly, iridescent plate with PROTRAX cleat configuration enables dynamic acceleration and traction.
Baseball fanatics can purchase the adidas adizero Afterburner 2017 Fourth Of July cleat on Tuesday, July 4th at adidas.com for $100. The limited edition cleats will also make their on-field debut on more than 100 #teamadidas baseball players over the weekend and for the holiday.
