The adidas 11Pro was very much the unsung hero of adidas' Samba Pack release some six months ago. The then-purple boot received a beautiful redesign with an updated outsole, new stud configuration, and memory foam-infused upper. The 11Pro is now back with a brand new Battle Pack colorway, ready to take the pitch in Brazil.
The new colorway, black-and-white, matches the rest of the Battle Pack but this time, the pattern looks to be inspired by air moving across the boot, from front to back, as it swiftly moves across the pitch. The three stripes are once again fiery gold to match the rest of the collection while the inside of the heel features the number 14, representing the year of the tournament.
The conical studs and new outsole design return, as does the memory foam-embedded Taurus leather that features a quilted stitch pattern on the forefoot. The 11Pro will be worn by England's Frank Lampard and Germany's Philipp Lahm, among others, in Brazil. Sacha Kljestan was also due to wear them but United States boss Jurgen Klinsmann elected not to bring the Anderlecht man into camp.
