With one month to go until the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil, adidas today launched Battle Pack, the official footwear collection for the tournament. Adidas Battle Pack features a new boot from each of the five adidas boot ranges adizero f50, predator, nitrocharge, 11pro and adizero f50 Messi, each with its own disruptive black and white pattern to stand out on the pitch. Every boot has been designed with an aggressive identity and cutting edge technology. adidas Battle Pack will be worn on-field during the FIFA World Cup™ by the full roster of adidas players including Leo Messi and Oscar to Dani Alves and Luis Suarez.
The black and white patterns of the boots have been inspired by the warpaint of native warriors and the iconic pavement patterns of ancient Mesopotamia perfected on the Copacabana beach. The individual patterns are designed to express the attributes of each boot, as well as the attitude and abilities of the player type who wears them as they fight for victory – speed, bravery, control, energy and agility.
The adizero f50 adiZero Messi combines revolutionary technologies with the precision engineering befitting of a four-time Ballon d’Or winner, with every aspect of the boot design based around making the wearer as fast as possible on the football field. At only 165g, the adizero f50 Messi is one of the lightest shoes on the market. The adizero f50 Messi has an additional blue added to the black and white colourway, inspired by the national colours of Leo Messi’s native Argentina. To order a pair CLICK HERE.
The Adidas Predator Instinct is all new and is the only one of the Battle Pack to be designed with a white on black colourway (the others are all black on white) and is the latest in a line of new predator boots to be released especially for every FIFA World Cup since 1994. Favoured by the likes of Oscar, Mesut Özil and Fernando Torres, the boot is designed with five distinctive ‘Lethal Zones’ of technology to deliver outstanding ball control, touch, accuracy and power.
