“The Speed of Light Pack is the most dynamic range of boots adidas has ever launched, designed to help players standout and lead on the pitch,” said Sam Handy, Vice President of Design.

“Spearheaded by the fastest boot we’ve ever built, the most agile boot we’ve ever built, and the boot which takes ball control to another level, our new footwear will be integral to deciding some of the biggest games this season between the world’s best players.”

Inspired by the colours created during light speed experiments, the boots are available in the shades of Solar Red, Solar Yellow and Shock Blue colourways. They come in adidas’ X16+ PURECHAOS, Ace 16+ PURECONTROL and MESSI 16+ PUREAGILITY styles.

The X16+ PURECHAOS, specifically designed to suit the fastest players in the world, has been reinvented in the Solar Red colour. The shoe is light and it features the latest PURECUT SOCK SYSTEM which covers the boot laces to provide players with the best fit.

X16+ PURECHAOS will be worn by Barcelona’s forward Luis Suarez.

In Solar Yellow, will come the ACE 16+ PURECONTROL. The first high-performance laceless boot, ACT 16+ PURECONTROL has been touted as one of the most innovative boots for its Primeknit upper and NON STOP GRIP (NSG) technology, which offers unprecedented close ball control.

Juventus midfield general Paul Pogba is among the players donning the boots for the season ahead.

Lastly, comes the ultimate boot in Shock Blue treatment, the MESSI 16+ PUREAGILITY. As the name suggests, the footwear was inspired by the world’s best player.

Featuring a PURECUT internal lacing system and an innovative SPRINTFRAME, the MESSI 16+ PUREAGILITY is designed to provide stability and traction in the lightest possible weight.
