Ghosted, a verb that means to glide smoothly and effortlessly.
adidas is redefining the game of football, and the definition of fast with the all-new adidas X Ghosted. The football boot starts at the limit as it continues the adidas DNA of pushing the needle of performance and technology. The result is an untapped discovery engineered for the next level.
The X Ghosted focuses on the essentials with its Translucent Mirageskin upper. The upper is composed of three layers of material unified into one waterproof material layer over a wireframe structure and a mesh that adapts to the foot and provides a speedy aesthetic even when stagnant.
In addition to the upper, the boot adopts a carbon fiber plate that provides propulsion like sensation. The Carbitex Speedframe marks the first time that a carbon fiber plate makes its way to the pitch.
The adidas X Ghosted also features Vaccum Fit thanks to the layered upper and the 3D molded heel. The combination leads to a sensation that sucks the air out of the boot when putting it on for a completely locked-down fit.
The X Ghosted is available via pre-order now over at adidas. Expect the boot to break the barrier of fast during Europa League, UEFA Champions League and UEFA Women’s Champions League.
Learn more about the boot below from the adidas Football team, including USWNT and Portland Thorns striker Lindsey Horan.
Portland Thorns/USWNT Striker
Horan: My style has developed over the past few years. It matches what this boot is giving me. I like a lightweight boot. Over time, the innovation with this cleat has helped me. Counter attacks start through me, play in the middle starts through me. Having that comfortability with this cleat, and feeling fast is perfect.
It’s been incredible. Putting it on for the first time gives you that feeling that you’re putting on a sock. You feel so fast dribbling and running with it on. The extra boost is a great feeling.
I’m a player that likes the ball at my feet. Being able to feel the ball more so because of the boot and its lockdown component makes you more confident. You feel locked in.
The Mirageskin and translucency give it a fast look that’s already exciting. It’s so lightweight. The way the boot looks makes you want to put it on and get out there.
You don’t want to worry about your cleats. All of that goes away and you’re focused on football with these.

Lowrey: There’s always an efficient way to build things. The way we really dialed that in a way that hadn’t been done before and combining that with materials and technology was our biggest inspiration.

Hagel: We want to push the boundaries. We want to bring the next levels of speed. We want it to look and feel fast. The Carbitex Speedframe is the centerpiece that allows you to become the fastest version of yourself.
It’s about combining the aesthetic of the game and the performance. Blending it together and connecting to the sport and the culture of the sport is key.
