After catching some heat from their customers for lackluster shoe designs, Adidas recently updated their current line for the 2015 spring soccer season with the “There Will Be Haters” pack. Expanding on current models, Adidas added more features and colors, while also impressing players and fans with the sharp "Black Pack" that stands apart from Nike’s current release of neon color ways.
Fueled by “Hate”
The "There Will Be Haters" campaign has shaken up the soccer world by emphasizing the “hate” that the best players are subject to from opposing fans and other players. Elite players know that impressive performances can stimulate animosity from rivals. Instead of viewing this in a negative light, Adidas wants its players to “embrace the hate” and use that as fuel to drive greater performance on the field. These players thrive off the attention – and make no apology for relishing in the “hate.”
Possessed by Speed
The new F50 Adizero is designed for maximum speed on the soccer field. Adidas updated the F50's overall appearance with a unique “Ghost” graphic featured throughout the upper. A new 3-D Dribbletex layer covers the striking graphic in order to maintain a player’s ball control in a variety of weather conditions.The classic Three Stripe branding is featured on the heel and tongue instead of its traditional positioning down the side of the boot. Inspired by sprint spikes, the F50 Adizero has a new stud design with an extra layer of studs increasing grip and traction on firm ground. The boots were also designed with a HybridTouch upper, utilizing the benefits of leather, but in a strong, lightweight synthetic with long-term shape retention. European players like Gareth Bale, Luis Suarez, and James Rodriguez will be wearing these boots on pitch.
Predator Instinct FG
Stalk your prey on the field with the new Predator Instinct firm ground cleats. This boot is equipped with a newly engineered gel pad on its instep for precision passing and ball control. These Predators are constructed of a newly developed, “super-soft” upper material that combines the benefits of both leather and synthetic materials. The 3-D graphic SL rubber stripes provide optimal grip on the ball, with a brand new transparent Control Frame outsole for an ultimate touch through the forefoot.
