micoach is all you need to get the results you want.
Great for field turf! Don't be shy to order a full size down! I took the advice of other reviewers and ordered a full size down. First time I wore them, they were a bit tight but after one game, they were great. Very comfortable and great traction for cutting. (BTW bought them for playing ultimate)
This ball is one of the best, if not the best soccer ball you can buy. The materials that this ball is made from are great, the finish on the ball is not completely smooth, the white panels of the ball have a slight texturing that make a night and day difference to a completely smooth ball, keep in mind that this texture is not as pronounced, or raised as the top end ball, but I have used it in rainy days and it works great in wet weather, the ball does not slip from under your foot unlike the cheaper, lower quality balls, plus it does not rip easily either, which makes the durability great. The thermal bonding on the ball helps it to not absorb as much water as stitched balls, also the ball feels much more fluent to the hand as well as when playing with it, it also looks much more better than the stiched ones, and the ball also has a very light construction, which feel great when shooting it. The ball also looks much better than a lot of other balls on the market, but if you are specifically looking for a cheaper alternative to the 160$ top of the line ball from the champios league that looks alike, this ball pretty much is the only ball that does that, because the cheaper balls in the champins league line all have the standard 32 panel construction and the panels are not in the shape of stars, which kills the design, and the shiny finish to them looks cheap. If you are looking for a ball that looks great, performs great, and has good quality, this is the ball you should get, if you have the extra 20$ to spend on a ball (that is the difference from the cheaper one) that has barely any differences from the 160$ one, go for it, because this ball is 10 times better than the lower quality balls in the line, and I would reccomed this to anyone looking for a training ball for dailly use, that can undoubtably be used for a game ball, also for coaches that are looking to buy their team a nice set of balls. all in all this is the best value ball money can buy
I had bought these in a size 7 for my girlfriend (which is her size in every other cleat/shoe) but it was too long. Had to go down to a size 6 and it fits nice and snug. She said they're comfortable and feel really good! All in all, her and I would recommend these cleats but would advise to go a full size down your usual.
This boot fits well width wise- it fits snug and hugs your feet HOWEVER THE LENGTH OF THE CLEAT IS EXTRA LONG. I USUALLY WEAR A SIZE 6, BUT FOR THIS PARTICULAR CLEAT I HAD ABOUT 1 INCH OF ROOM FROM MY TOE TO THE END OF THE BOOT. CUSTOMER SERVICE SAID TO TRY A HALF SIZE DOWN (SIZE 5.5) HOPEFULLY IT ACTUALLY FITS TRUE TO SIZE AND LENGTH AT SIZE 5.5...
for someone who is just getting into soccer, these were a great purchase for beginner outdoor/turf playing. they are comfortable, fit great and I am amazed what a difference having a real pair of cleats makes. I have no idea the difference in these cleats vs. the more expensive, professional type, but for a beginner these are perfect.
These shorts are good looking, a great length and lightweight. If you need white soccer shorts these are very good quality. This is the lightest fabric Adidas offers and it is a bit see through, but so are every other white pair we've tried.
I bought this for personal training, really able to assist someone serious about improving their shot. No complaints, excellent ball (just a bit below Brazuca quality), fast charge, instant data. What's not to love.
These shin guards protect well, but as I run down the field, they slip. I constantly have to pull them back up. The shin guard itself was the correct size, but I think the slipping was due to the sleeve being too big.
I always dreamed of having my own official Adidas soccer ball since I was a little kid, and I finally rewarded myself on my birthday last week. I absolutely love this ball; the feel of it, the quality, the color, the design, is so impressive to say the least! It will likely be displayed in my house as one of my most prized possessions ever, that's for sure!
Placed my order on a Sunday night and received the goods on the following Tuesday. Excellent service and product was as advertised. Very happy with Adidas on-line. Will definitely be a return customer.
The ball itself is great. It is of high quality construction, is easy to charge, and connects easily to the Android app on my phone. The app itself is very good for a product this early in its lifecycle. As an early adopter of the Zepp sensor for baseball, if the Adidas software team is anywhere near as good as the Zepp software team, I anticipate the app will only get better in a few months. It is already giving feedback to my daughter that she has not received in three years of playing travel soccer, and I expect this ball to elevate her game to a point that it would not get to without the feedback it provides.
Currently the only product on the market that always you to work out how the ball is kicked and the what the results are. This helps in improving one's technique to get the best accurate results. One think though, there is no substitute in skill and dedication.
Good product, easy set up and easy to use. I'm using it as coaching tool with my u11 travel team. The kids have fun seeing their stats, speed of kick, where they make contact on the ball etc. and allows me to work individually with them to improve their technique.
Purchased this for the Women's World Cup in Canada in 2015, supporting my home team, Germany. The fabric is very light and feels great on the skin, thererfore making this perfect for exercising, too. The shirt is tailord for women, i.e. fitted around the waist but without being too long/tight (again, perfect for wearing during exercise). I am around 1.74m tall and usually wear a UK size 14-16 so went for a size L which fits me nicely with a bit of fit, whereas the XL size was just a touch too loose (lenght-wise, this would have been ok tough). The national flag on the neck is a nice little touch and with Germany having won two World Cups in the past, the two stars are proudly sitting above the chest badge. Looking forward to wearing this when exercising and putting the climacool fabric to the test.
I'm 5'11 but only 124 lbs, I prefer small for bottoms and usually my shorts ride low because of my weight but these ride up a lot. I had to buy compression shorts for these so I wouldn't show anything unnecessary. I wear these for running, volleyball and basketball, so 3-4 days a week for multiple hours. They're soft and they never get heavy from the sweat my legs produce. They stay nice and cool as well, plus they hold up really well after a wash, their color is still as good as new. Besides the fact that they ride up (not as in the crotch giving you a wedgy, but the waistline just likes to rise), I would recommend these shorts. The blue and black shorts are good colors, probably going to get the green ones next as it's my school color. I tried to upload some pictures so you could see the color and fit of the small on my body frame, but the pictures are kind of blurry.
Im a canadian 13year old boy and i bought the wwc official match ball its amazing u guys should buy it trust me unless u loose it or they steel it from you, you eill not regret buying this amazing soccer ball!!!
Fantastic piece of kit. Easy to use, looks and feels like the typical quality you expect with Adidas products. The information displayed after each kick its great and it also brings an element of fun, so the kids will get something out of it even if an adult is buying it for themselves. If there is a downside, it's that I wish you could get this item in other sizes, as my son is 8 and would get more out of this if it were a size 3-4. Brilliant product though, it will help develop our son throughout his footballing career.
technology and sport in unison The smart ball can take teaching to the next level, when Adidas roll out the new firmware updates to include moving ball data the smart ball will possibly become the biggest technological advancement in football history, if you think what computers have done for mathematics, computing data to find solutions in a fraction of the time, then the smart ball can compute the footballers data to teach the solution in a fraction of time. As a football coach teaching players how to shoot and pass the ball is a huge part of training and this is done by repetition, but being able to show each player exactly how they have hit the ball and then teach how to adjust to make that shot/pass perfect is such an advancement and advantage. e.g. Taking my goalkeeper, within a session we have perfected his goal kicks, by using the smart ball app to study with him how and where exactly he struck the ball the spin he generated, and the approach using the video data he was able to make adjustments to create his perfect goal kick and then continue to use the data to recreate over and over until continued perfection, before this session his perfect goal kick had been taking years with trail and error, now Completed in one session and the data has been saved, so when he feels he's not kicking just right we can see instantly where he needs to adjust. The smart ball is already amazing but it's capabilities have only just started
great ball would recommend this. moves well great control. my son loves it. I would recommend this to any budding player it helps with skills as well. its a must buy for any serios training great value too
this ball is seriously the best ball on the market still from mid 2014 to early 2015. This ball has helped me expert my knuckleball and My around the wall and over the wall shot. Thank you Adidas for creating a ball and app that's like a personal coach
This was purchased as a birthday present for my 14 year old son. It wasn't on his birthday list so was a gamble.....however, it was fantastic, his face was a picture as this is one of the latest in gadgets (unbeknown to me). In his words it was "the best present EVER". It was extremely easy to set up and link to his I-phone. The delivery was very speedy and was packaged well, so no signs that this was a football. I now have a garden full of teenagers or should I say budding world champion footballers!!
I originally bought this ball for myself and within a very short space of time the technique that the ball had helped my with was transferable to any ball I would kick, it made my game play more competent and confident and meant that my processing speed was much quicker on the ball and the accuracy of what I do with it has increased dramatically. I now use the ball with my students (9-16) and the rate with which they improve with the knowledge of how to strike a ball well and the understanding of different ways of manoeuvring the ball for crossing, fading, curling and knuckling is astounding. All of the students I have worked with when asked "what do you do when you kick the ball?" reply "I run up and kick it" and the improvement in their consistency, accuracy and power comes from having a knowledge of kicking process and technique from the ball and app. They love using the ball both for the novelty of using an electric football and because it takes them from playground football to a detailed and successful kicking method. It was easy to find the app underwhelming and trivial at first but once individual aspects of kicking are changed even in the smallest of ways a very visible difference is apparent and my feelings of mild disappointment were gone. The general consensus from all that have used the ball is that it is a work of brilliance. Yes it is expensive but worth investment for both improvement as a footballer and a productive use of MANY hours working on kicking technique.
The micoach ball is really cool. It shows everything about how you kicked the ball, where you kicked, the balls trajectory, how fast it spun, and more. iPad users have to download the app from the website instead of the AppStore. Only thing that I wish was added was the ability to deflate the ball for traveling with it.
Great for free kicks to understand effect of rotation and speed. Kids love it - encourages friendly competition especially when trying to kick within a small range of mph. The visualization through the graphing application on the smart phone really captures the kids attention. Overall great buy. The ball itself plays and feels like a Nike match ball and the quality is solid. How you would change the rechargeable battery is beyond me.
I bought the mi coach smart soccer ball for my son. He loves the game and loves to play. He prefers to train with the ball instead of playing video games, so this definitely gets him off the couch and makes him active outside. The ball is amazing! It actually shows real time data tracking speed, spin, trajectory, etc after each kick. My son won't stop training or playing with it. He loves the challenges included with the app. This ball is a definite must have for any soccer player. Adidas does it again, creating innovative and practical equipment and apparel. Thanks Adidas! !
