There are a lot of things going on with the Nitrocharge 1.0. The yellow strip across the boot stabilizes the upper front part of the boot for sharp side cuts and fast turn movements, the zig-zag line at the bottom front helps you run faster and further, and jump higher, the special outsole construction and studs configuration offer perfect balance between lightweight and stability during footstrike. There's even a hi-tech chip in the midsole that measures distance, max speed, number of sprints, and high intensity distance for online coaching. Will all this tech improve your performance? We don't know yet but we do know some who are very happy with it. The guy in the video on the right is one of them and one of the things he said is that the Nitrocharge is “most comfortable boot that Adidas is producing right now”. See review here.
