When NFL hopefuls arrive to Indianapolis for the Combine this weekend, they'll be laced up in the brand new adizero 5-Star 40 cleat. The shoe combines elements of the world's lightest track spike, the adizero Prime and the lightest football cleat, the adizero 5-Star. A limited run is being sold for $150 at adidas.com.
Furthermore, adidas isn't just talking a big game — they're putting their money where their mouth is. For the second-straight year, they'll be rewarding the player who posts the fastest 40-yard dash at the Combine. The player who records this weekend's fastest time will be running away with $100,000 courtesy of the good folks in stripes. Not a bad incentive for players on top of an opportunity to reach their NFL dreams.
The NFL Combine will air throughout the weekend on the NFL Network. More on the ultra-lightweight adizero 5-Star 40 coming to Sole Collector soon.
