Liverpool star Luis Suarez will be wearing black and white this summer and next season.
But don’t worry, Liverpool fans, he’s not on his way to St. James’ Park to play for Newcastle. He’ll just be wearing the new adidas Battle Pack range with thier unique black and white pattern.
With one month to go until the biggest event in the football calendar, adidas have launched Battle Pack, the official footwear collection for the tournament.
The adidas Battle Pack features a new boot from each of the five adidas boot ranges adizero™ f50, predator®, nitrocharge™, 11pro and adizero™ f50 Messi, each with its own disruptive black and white pattern to stand out on the pitch.
Every boot has been designed with an aggressive identity and cutting edge technology. The adidas Battle Pack will be worn on-field during the FIFA World Cup™ by the full roster of adidas players including Leo Messi and Oscar to Dani Alves and Liverpool star Luis Suarez.
The black and white patterns of the boots have been inspired by the warpaint of native warriors and the iconic pavement patterns of ancient Mesopotamia perfected on the Copacabana beach. The individual patterns are designed to express the attributes of each boot, as well as the attitude and abilities of the player type who wears them as they fight for victory – speed, bravery, control, energy and agility.
Markus Baumann, Senior VP for Global Football at adidas said: “For Battle Pack, we wanted the boots to be highly visible on pitch and stand out from the extreme range of colour everyone expects to see in Brazil.
“In addition, we wanted to pay homage to a unique Brazilian design and the powers associated with the boots and style of the players wearing them. They will help prepare our players for battle in Brazil, as they aim for glory.”
