The collection will feature a new boot from each of the five Adidas boot ranges, adizero f50, predator, nitrocharge, 11pro and adizero f50 Messi; and will all boast a striking black, white and orange design to really turn up the temperature in Brazil.

Check out the official launch video for the Adidas Battle Pack range:

The likes of Luis Suarez, Mesut Ozil, and Lionel Messi will don the new footwear during the upcoming tournament, with the designs inspired by the warpaint of native warriors and the iconic pavement patterns of ancient Mesopotamia perfected on the Copacabana beach.

The five individual patterns exist to highlight the overwhelming attributes of each boot, as well as the key abilities of the player type who will wear them as they compete for football’s biggest prize – speed, bravery, control, energy and agility.
