Words: Sam Diss
Just in time for the good(ish) weather, adidas have dropped some new colourways of their boots as part of the Virtoso pack.
The pack—styled by Paul Pogba and rapper A$AP Ferg—has a futuristic slant that makes it stand out from previous packs. Each boot is white with eye-catching coloured accents, elevating the well-known silhouettes of each shoe.
The Predator is the standout, for us: white with royal blue accents across the outsteps’ textured Three Stripes and flecks of blue across the boot’s upper and sole plate (plus Pogba will be wearing them). The COPA is another highlight with a green (yep) hue to its detailing and branding along its supple white upper.
Can’t say these will be easy to clean up after a run about down the Marshes, but it’s always a joy to bring a beautiful pair of boots back to full fitness, isn’t it? Sat there on the sofa, bucket of sudsy water at your feet, scrubbing the mud off: what a way to spend a Sunday. And with adidas Football’s boot range having uppers that often feel like leather while being decidedly synthetic, you get the best of both worlds: the feel of the old and the durability of the new. Magic.
The adidas Football ‘Virtuso’ pack is available to buy online from adidas now.
