A few days before the Champions League final between Manchester City and Chelsea at the Dragon Stadium in Porto, adidas is stepping up a gear and plunging the X Ghosted and the Predator Freak into metallic gray through the Showpiece collection.
A few weeks after unveiling the revolutionary Gamemode range and the ultra-innovative PredCopX, the three-stripe brand surprises us by presenting two of its silos in a color that differs greatly from what the pairs of the Superspectral pack emit. According to some rumors, the shoes of this new pack had to be worn during the finals of the Euro and the Copa America while those of the Superspectral pack were to be worn during the group stages. But this early release leads us to believe that the Showpiece pack will be present in the Europa League and Champions League finals.
This new Predator Freak is unveiled in a metallic gray color with a touch of black at the level of the three stripes that appear on the outer side. Red and blue bring a little color to the upper through the “Demonskin 2.0” which are small rubber scales that would offer better control of the ball, in addition to bringing an ultra original look to the pair. Nothing changes from a technological point of view and we obviously find this original cut at the level of the heel which would allow to gain in range of movement. This pair could be worn by Paul Pogba against Villareal in the final of the Europa League.
The new X Ghosted is presented in the same metallic gray color with the famous black adidas stripes. Red and blue make subtle layered appearances throughout the pair. As always, the German brand’s speed shoe stands out thanks to its outsole. SpeedFrame chrome and its insert Carbitex in carbon fiber. This pair has already been worn by Mohammed Salah against Cystal Palace on the last day of the Premier League and could therefore be worn by Timo Werner against Kevin de Bruyne and Manchester City in the C1 final.
The absence of the Copa is not surprising since it has already benefited from a new colorway in March with the Copa Sense Inner Life. Regarding the Nemeziz, it has just been sublimated especially for Lionel Messi in a very flashy gold-red color. Unveiled through a video featuring the Argentine genius with the pair in his hands, this Nemeziz highlights all his records and could well herald the epilogue of the silo.
