adidas World Cup SG cleats and 11Nova IN

Soft ground cleats can be hard to find with the majority of cleats being made for firm ground, but today adidas brought back the classic World Cup SG cleat.  It is like the Copa Mundial with kangaroo leather upper and the classic black and white colorway, but this version has the SG studs for soft ground surfaces.

The World Cup SG has the extended tongue that can be folded over.  It also has replaceable aluminum studs on the bottom connected to a triple density outsole.  The World Cup SG weights 10.2 oz which is not exactly light, but not bad for a classic SG cleat.  You can get it now in sizes 6.5- 13 for $160 at adidas.com.

Also today adidas added the 11Nova IN indoor shoe.  It comes in a solar blue with hints of battle pack pattern around the heel.  The upper is made with Free Kick leather with vamp stitching in the forefoot.  It also features memory foam and suede lining for comfort.  For cushioning, there is an EVA midsole with adiprene in the heel.  The 11Nova IN is available now in sizes 7-13.5 for $75 at adidas.com.
