RGIII adizero 5-Star Mid Launch (Videos)

At 7.9 ounces, the adizero 5-Star Mid is more than two ounces lighter than the nearest competitor and is designed to help make football players at every position faster.

The top high school football players in the country debuted the adizero 5-Star Mid at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in January and adidas NFL players including Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller and New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham wore the new cleat in the playoffs and Pro Bowl. Leading up to the 2012 NFL Draft, Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III has been working out in the adizero 5-Star Mid and Low and here are his thoughts on his NFL preparation and the 5-Star cleats:

Taking innovation cues from the adizero 5-Star Low, which launched in 2011, the mid version features a single-layer synthetic upper called SPRINTSKIN and a SPRINTFRAME base, which significantly reduce the weight while providing the perfect balance between lightweight construction and increased support. Internal TPU support bands offer increased stability for quick cuts and changes of direction on the field and triangular-shaped cleats provide players with maximum acceleration and traction on both natural and artificial surfaces.

The adizero 5-Star Mid is available now for $115 in 8 colors at www.adidas.com and we’ll continue to roll out additional colorways leading up to the 2012 football season.
