adidas Embraces The Dark Side With New "Black Pack" Boots

Black Pack Group 2
adidas has today revealed new versions of each of its adidas adizero f50, adidas Predator, adidas Nitrocharge and adidas 11Pro silos. The new Black Pack brings the classic black-out series to the #ThereWillBeHaters campaign.

The #ThereWillBeHaters campaign has shaken up the world of football by celebrating the "hate" that the best players are subject to from fans. The best players know that their performances stimulate "hate" from fans and opponents, particularly on social media. This then becomes the fuel which drives even greater performances. They thrive off it – and they make no apology in doing so.

The Black Pack is the latest instalment of the hugely popular black-out series of boots. Each of the four silos has been given a dramatic re-design, while retaining the latest technological innovations of the #ThereWillBeHaters boots. Each silo features a unique re-designed upper based on specific medieval characteristics. The uncompromising new designs bring to life the classic look of the black-out series as well as the provocative tone of #ThereWillBeHaters.

The adidas adizero f50 is made for the world's most prolific players. The new "Fleur de Lisse" design is inspired by French knights. The 3D dribbletex layer on the upper allows for better speed dribbling in wet or dry conditions while the grip texture, stud configuration and second level of traction on the forefoot base provide maximum manoeuvrability.

The new design of the Predator features a Tudor Rose inspired by British Knights. The 3D engineered SL rubber zones, combined with the engineered gel pod, provide optimal grip on the ball and an enhanced capability for precision passing, while the revolutionary control frame provides ultimate contact with the ball.

Nitrocharge is the perfect boot for "The Engine", box-to-box, all-action player. The new Black Pack boot incorporates design elements from the renaissance in a striking new look.Energy-sling technology has been used alongside an increased area of protection pads and protection mesh to provide unrivalled stability.

The 11Pro is the epitome of comfort. The skeleton in the heel and forefoot offers a perfect fit and increased stability. The comfort outsole also features a comfort frame which distributes pressure across the shoe, while new smaller studs provide perfect ground penetration. The Black Pack 11Pro features a design inspired by Ottoman Janissary.

The world's most hated players wear the adidas adizero f50, adidas Predator, adidas Nitrocharge and adidas 11Pro. For further information please visit adidas.com/football or go to facebook.com/adidasfootball or follow @adidasfootball #ThereWillBeHaters on twitter to join the conversation.
