Playing soccer during the frigid winter months can sometimes take the fun out of the beautiful game. That’s why adidas have released their latest “Cold Mode” pack, designed to keep the winter elements at bay by integrating PrimaLoft insulation into the upper of each silo. Take a closer look at the new boots and learn how the patented material works.
PrimaLoft® is a brand of patented synthetic microfiber thermal insulation material that was developed for the United States Army in the 1980s. For the first time ever, it has made its way to the upper of football boots to keep your feet warm and comfortable all winter long. The PrimaLoft insulation is engineered into the upper of the Predator, X, and Nemeziz silos (both laceless and laced) as part of the new Cold Mode pack; the Copa has been omitted since adidas has bigger plans for that silo in the near future. In addition to the material being integrated into the upper, each boot features red PrimaLoft branding on the side of the upper to remind the wearer that their toes won’t go numb in these boots.
The Predator receives a “Trace Blue/Legend Ink/Clear Orange” color update for the winter months. Predominantly blue with a pink heel and a black/white soleplate, the Predator will stay under the radar this winter. It is available in both laceless and laced versions here.
The Nemeziz, on the other hand, gets a unique “Maroon/Legend Ink/Collegiate Burgundy” color update. The soleplate features a cracked effect for an even more distinctive look. It is available in both laceless and laced versions here.
Last but not least, the X is given a “Raw Green/Night Cargo/Clear Mint” color update. The speckled effect on the heel, also seen on the Predator 18+, adds some flair to the unusual colorway. It is available in both laceless and laced versions here.
