Liverpool speedster Mohamed Salah set for ultra-quick boots in UCL final

Adidas have revealed the next-gen boots that Mohamed Salah will be wearing for the Champions League final this weekend.

Called the Energy Mode X18+, the sleek laceless boots have been painstakingly developed to help nifty players such as Salah reach maximum speed as fast as is humanly possible.

The X18+ boots are stripped down and coated in a new material called Skeletalweave which is ultra-thin, ultra-lightweight and sculpted to facilitate "flat-out speed and a super-responsive touch."

Real Madrid's defenders will no doubt be enthused to learn that Salah is going to be quicker than ever on Saturday night.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
