After turning the latch and lifting the lid, we were greeted with a photo of Philipp Lahm, Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi, Dani Alves, and Mesut Ozil. Under the photo was a plexiglass cutout of each one of the shapes that defined the adidas Battle Pack boots and beneath that were the five boots themselves.
Encased in individual compartments outlined by bright orange paint (save for Messi's F50s which featured a special blue color like the boots themselves), were the 11pro, F50, Messi F50, Nitrocharge, and Predator Instinct. The boots went out for a quick photoshoot before getting all muddy in game action.
The boots are all 50% black and 50% white save for the gold adidas stripes on each boot (and the Messi F50 that carries a thick blue stripe). Each is a take on the Samba Pack boots that preceded the individual silos except for the Predator Instinct, which celebrates its 20th anniversary and brings with it a number of important improvements and innovations.
After you finish looking at the photo set, keep an eye out for the Predator Instinct review that will be out soon.
