A few weeks ago, adidas partnered with Disney for the latest Stan Smith, Forever campaign. adidas has continued its partnership with Disney with a collaboration for Marvel X-Men. This time around, however, the collab is for its football range with new bold designs for the adidas x Marvel X-Men collection.
For the collaboration, adidas has chosen two popular boots, the adidas Predator Freak and X Ghosted ranges.
The two silhouettes have been reimagined with colourways based on the X-Men’s most popular characters, Wolverine and Cyclops. Both of the colourways are based on the costumes seen in the 90s animated series.
The Predator Freak receives the iconic yellow and black makeover, based on Wolverine’s colours. For the X Ghosted boot, it receives the yellow and blue with a touch of red, as worn by Cyclops.
adidas’ Predator Freak dropped at the start of 2021, ushering in a bold new design and detailing. For the update pack, it receives new blockings, colours and graphics inspired by the adamantium-clawed superhero.
For the adidas X Ghosted based on Cyclops, it features all-new adidas performance material, the Translucent Mirageskin. This is a super-lightweight material offering great stability and support. The silhouette was inspired by track and field with a sprint spike forefoot. The construction ensures players will always be primed for on-demand linear bursts. In addition to this, the Carbitex Speedframe outsole integrates a tunable carbon plate, providing speed and explosive propulsion for more efficient transmission.
As part of the adidas x Marvel X-Men collection, the brand has partnered with renowned Marvel artists to create player sketches for some of its footballers. The series will bring these players superhuman football abilities in comic book form.
The adidas x Marvel X-Men collection is available from today across the globe. If you’re looking to get your pair on the adidas Predator Freak you can visit adidas.co.za as well as various retailers across the country.
