adidas have unveiled the boot that is to headline their World Cup footwear, The Predator 18+ Energy Mode.
A slight nod to the 1998 Predator Accelerator in a then, never-before-seen 'Electric' colourway, this boot that comes two deacdes on, is again one to catch attention on the biggest stage. Whether they're catching the sunlight or the floodlights in Russia amongst the World Cup games next month, expect to see the likes of Dele Alli, Mesut Ozil, and Paul Pogba dashing about in them.
An all black and white line-up of boots for adidas at the Brazil World Cup is a big difference from the brand's approach to Russia, who are encouraging their players to be bold and to stand out with this footwear seemingly being the perfect option to do that in. Coming with that sock-like fit that so many boots seem to do these days, in comparison to the original boots that these take inspiration from, we really have come a long way.
