This season has now come to an end and we here at #bootsfinder now have the chance to look forward to the 2018 WORLD CUP in RUSSIA!!!
It starts on 14th June and will finish on the 15th July and it's a great chance for boot companies such as Adidas, Nike and more to create new boots specifically for this special occasion and be showcased by the World's Greatest Players on the pitch.
The new range of boots from Adidas for the 2018 World Cup pack have now been leaked and we want to share them with you!
The Adidas 2018 World Cup collection is dubbed Adidas Energy Mode pack. These photos are only a glance of what’s coming up in the energy mode pack.
The range includes: a brand new, next generation Adidas Nemeziz (orange), Adidas Predator (yellow) and a brand new next gen Adidas X (blue). Only the Predator will remain in the same guise of the Predator 18 that was released in December 2017.
Energy Mode Adidas Copa 18 - Solar Red / Core Black / Solar Yellow
Quite possibly the most garish look in the whole collection are the Energy Mode Adidas Copa 2018 boots as they are mostly a 'Solar Red' with black-iridescent markings and a lot of 'Solar Yellow' (basically Adidas' equivalent of Nike's Volt) in the rear Primeknit part.
You will mostly see Vincent Kompany, Yohan Cabaye, Yoann Gourcuff they are either wearing a custom blackout pair or the current copa 18.1.
Arriving 2017, the Copa 18.1 are the first boots to feature the traditional leather from Adidas combined with with a knitted fabric along with a new internal structure.
Adidas Copa 18.1 - Features
· Kangaroo leather upper
· no more forefoot stitching
· Primeknit sleeve
· Likely to cost £170 in the UK and will be released in late May or early June 2018.
Adidas Nemeziz 18 - Zest / Core Black / Solar Red
The new Adidas Nemeziz World Cup football boots are going to be mostly Orange with a red pattern all over the entire boot. The stripes on the Energy Mode Adidas Nemeziz 18 only appear on the outside whilst the instep is clear.
These boots are likely to be worn by star adidas sponsored players such as Firmino, Lingard and Messi who will be receiving a signature colourway.
We expect these boots will be retailing at £170.
Adidas X 18+ Purespeed Boot - Blue / Solar Yellow / Black
The all new Adidas X 18+ Purespeed boots gets rid of the Adidas X branding and now comes with a new speed look! The 2018 World Cup (which will be the launch colors) of the Adidas X 18+ Purespeed is an electric blue and look amazing!
The Adidas X 17+ predecessor had a lace cover but the newer version comes without any laces at all. They feature a light weight mesh upper and a thin synthetic for the ultimate locked in feel.
The collar is gone and so is the old sole plate with Adidas using a mixture of arrow shaped blades and round studs for the rear.
they look sick and you might have already seen the likes of Mohammed Sallah trying them out (check our Instagram)! Adidas X 18+ Features
· Mesh upper
· Moulded Heel
The all new Adidas X 18+ Purespeed boots will be launched in June 2018 for around £250.
'Energy Mode' Adidas Predator 18+ World Cup Boots - Solar Yellow / Core Black / Red
Last but not least are our favourites - the Adidas Predator 18+ World Cup Boots. Inspired by the legendary limited edition Adidas Predator Accelerator colourway (pictured below), the Adidas Predator 2018 World Cup football boots will have a 'Solar Yellow' upper with eye catching red accents.
The sole plate of the Energy Mode Adidas Predator 2018 World Cup soccer boots are also red and yellow as well as the collar.
We particularly like the new predator range as its about time they started releasing a bit of vibrant colour into this really great sylo. The fact that its inspired by the old school special edition Accelerator range gets a big thumbs up from us and we will definitely be looking to add them into our range at a later date.
What’s your preference on this new energy mode pack releasing from adidas for the upcoming 2018 world cup and what are your predictions of who you think is going to win the world cup?
