words // Pierce Simpson:
The state of Texas and rich monikers are synonymous with one another. For starters, they have “Everything is Bigger In Texas” or “Keep Texas Clean.” However, there’s one moniker that may need to be added to its proverbial rolodex of phrases and that’s “Football is King.” It seems as though sneaker giant adidas agrees with that notion as adidas Football has unveiled the latest iteration of its popular adizero 5-Star 4.0 cleat that pays homage to the Lone Star State.
The left cleat will be decorated in a red hue and the right will follow suit in a blue hue, which is a direct representation of the Texas flag. The aforementioned flag is also seen along the sock liner of the model, as well as incorporating the phrase “Don’t Mess With Texas” along the side panel of each silhouette. This adizero 5-Star 4.0 cleat is the lightest cleat in football.
If you’re looking to showcase your inner-Texas pride and unveil this model on the gridiron, then head over to select adidas retailers and Texas-based Academy Sports as this commemorative cleat is now available.
