The Sports and Recreational Training Arena (SPARTA) on Pioneer St in Mandaluyong was the launching ground of adidas’ new line of football boots, and we were on hand to witness the festivities. With the theme of ‘chaos and control’, siblings James and Phil Younghusband, stars from the Philippine men’s football team and UFL, booters in the collegiate and youth levels, as well as media personalities and celebrities, tried out the new X15 (chaos) and Ace15 (control). Here are some moments we were able to capture that action-packed and fun-filled afternoon.
“They feel comfortable, especially now they got the high cut (techfit collar) which gives more compression around the ankle.” – Phil Younghusband on the adidas X15. (JP Abcede)
“I’m getting more grip around the ball.” – James Younghusband on the adidas Ace15. (JP Abcede)
