With the help of the universe's most brilliant scientist, Rick Sanchez, and his grandson, Morty Smith, Adidas unlocks new dimensions of speed for the players of Earth with the introduction of X SPEEDPORTAL – the latest innovation from its X speed boot franchise.
Having travelled the universe together in search of adventure, Rick and Morty bring their discovery to our reality in a new original animation as they experiment with the possibilities of multidimensional speed with X SPEEDPORTAL with some expert assistance from Mo Salah and Vivianne Miedema.
Every detail of X SPEEDPORTAL has been designed for the fastest players whilst remaining supremely comfortable, helping them unlock speed in all dimensions.
First introduced in 2020 on Adidas' game-changing X GHOSTED boot, Adidas' innovative SPEEDFRAME technology has been updated with a lightweight sole plate designed for unreal acceleration. The all-new multidimensional stud design gives players grip to get moving in any direction.
With so much speed, players need a boot that's also stable, supportive, and keeps the foot locked in place. For this, Adidas has created a new high-speed stability system which provides support, fit, and lockdown. The boot features a stability wing and support cage, which keeps players' feet locked in so they can play with absolute freedom when moving fast and changing direction.
Finally, the top-spec (P+) boot's outer SPEEDSKIN 2.0 is a laceless lightweight upper for step-in comfort and more direct ball contact. Designed to provide comfort for the full 90, the new SPEEDSKIN 2.0 will be available in laceless (P+) and laced (P1) models, creating a seamless connection between boot and foot.
The boot's launch campaign includes a 90-second original film from the creators of Rick and Morty, featuring the latest escapade from Earth's favourite dimension-surfing duo and a selection of iconic players.
In the film, the animated world meets the real world as Rick and Morty experiment with the possibilities of multidimensional speed using X SPEEDPORTAL, with a little help from Mo Salah and Vivianne Miedema.
As part of Adidas's journey to help end plastic waste, X SPEEDPORTAL is the first X-series boot to contain zero virgin polyester. Furthermore, at least 50% of the boot's upper is made with recycled materials, with no compromise to performance.
The boot comes in a Portal Fluid Green colourway and will be available from AED1,299 (P+) and AED1,199 (P1) from July 19th via adidas.com and selected Adidas stores and retailers.
