adidas Football has today announced the launch of its Red Limit collection with a brand new film starring Paul Pogba. The collection introduces the brand new ACE 17+ PURECONTROL which brings the brand’s BOOST technology to football for the first time. In another first, the Red Limit collection also features a street adaption of each silo, allowing players to take their game from the stadium, to the cage, to the street.

 

The launch film urges aspiring young footballers to focus on creating their own path, rather than emulating their heroes. A voiceover from a young player declares that he is not interested in mimicking the style of the professionals; he just wants their boots so he has the tools to create for himself. The film stars Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba, who will wear the Red Limit ACE 17+ PURECONTROL. 

 

 

The Red Limit ACE 17+ PURECONTROL features a 360 degree fully PRIMEKNIT upper to ensure zero wear-in time and is protected by an ultrathin NSG (Non Stop Grip) film to provide ultimate levels of grip. The laceless PURECUT sock system is designed to eliminate overlays between the foot and the ball for ultimate control whilst the unique sock construction, which is formed of an internal lock-down system, offers premium comfort.

 

The ACE 17+ PURECONTROL’s newest feature sees the introduction of adidas Running’s BOOST technology. The BOOST cushioning is made up of thousands of unique foam balls and features along the boot’s SPRINTFRAME and sock liner. The end result returns more energy than conventional midsoles and delivers unrivalled levels of comfort.

 

 

The Red Limit collection continues with the launch of the Red Limit ACE 17+ PURECONTROL Cage version. Featuring the same black and red colourway as the on-pitch silo, the cage version features a PRIMEKNIT upper with a layer of NSG film to provide ultimate control. A stretchable layer of TECHFIT material is placed between the black and red colour blocks to optimise comfort, whilst a red EVA strip features above the heel’s BOOST to offer stability. Unlike the on-pitch boot, the cage version features BOOST on the heel only, designed to offer comfort, stability and energy return on a hard surface, where it matters most in cage football.

 

The ACE 17+ PURECONTROL Street version completes the Red Limit collection. Inspired by the street, the shoe features a sleek all-black colourway with red details and is predominantly constructed with a PRIMEMESH material for a lifestyle-focused look. A TECHFIT colour coating covers the three stripes whilst a full-length BOOST midsole enhances the lifestyle look whilst offering energy return.

 

Dean Lokes, Vice President of product adidas Football, said: “The Red Limit collection is the first time we’ve gone from the stadium to the street in the same collection. We’ve introduced a range of boots in on-pitch, cage and street silos so you can perform as well off the pitch as you can on it. The introduction of adidas’ leading BOOST technology highlights our constant desire to innovate within the sport and our endless drive to produce game-changing footwear for all types off footballers; wherever they play the game”.

adidas today reveals its latest global brand campaign starring Manchester United’s Paul Pogba, ahead of the on-air debut during The Red Devils’ match versus Liverpool tonight.

Featuring voiceover from his mother, the campaign shows how Pogba has always done the unexpected and serves as a call to players around the world to harness their own creativity to think, act and perform in new and unique ways.

 

“Creativity has always been the difference maker for Paul Pogba in all facets of his life, on and off the pitch,” said Ryan Morlan, adidas’ VP of Brand Communications. “Since childhood, his imagination has been the catalyst to defying the norm in the world of football. Pogba’s story mirrors our belief that creativity will take you further than your mind or body alone. There is only one Pogba, but all athletes can look to him for inspiration to use one’s own creativity to make new rules in their sport.”

 

Football Needs Creators is the latest chapter of the adidas SPORT 16 campaign that builds upon the belief that all athletes are #HereToCreate. The new spot follows the recent launch of Sport Needs Creators featuring Pogba, Super Bowl 50 MVP Von Miller of the Denver Broncos, two-time NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers, 2015 National League Rookie of the Year Kris Bryant of the Chicago Cubs, four-time NBA All-Star James Harden of the Houston Rockets, rookie guard Moriah Jefferson of the San Antonio Stars, and top NBA Draft selections Brandon Ingram of the Los Angeles Lakers, Jaylen Brown of the Boston Celtics and Jamal Murray of the Denver Nuggets.

With the UEFA EURO 2016 now underway, adidas has unveiled a stunning collection of photography of French midfielder, Paul Pogba. The imagery was captured by world-renowned photographer, Juergen Teller, who is widely recognised as one of the most influential photographers of his generation.

 

adidas commissioned Teller to travel alongside Pogba and document the football star in a mix of portrait and still life photography in the build-up to this summer’s tournament. The result is a raw and intimate portrait of the player – one of 21st Century football’s most dynamic and exciting personalities. The imagery also showcases a rare fusion of art, fashion and sport.

 

 

Included in the collection are a number of images of Pogba at the Juventus FC training ground, demonstrating his unique relationship with the ball. Known for his cool, off-kilter, informal point-and-shoot style, Teller also captured Pogba away from the football pitch. Shot at home as well as on the streets of Paris, with his brothers, the photography provides an exclusive snap shot into the life of one of footballs most interesting talents.

 

 

This photography project marks the latest collaboration between Pogba and adidas, who signed the 23-year-old star player for a long-term partnership in March 2016. At the time, Pogba was quoted as saying:

 

“This is the first sponsor contract I’ve signed and it’s a very important decision for me. I chose adidas because we have shared passions and values. adidas has the same vibe as I do, on and off the pitch.” He also added: “I love music, dance, and fashion, but my biggest passion is football, and I needed a brand that would give me the space to express myself and explore new frontiers. In adidas, I found a partner with the same goals as me.”

 

Teller, a respected art photographer represented at leading galleries internationally, as well as a contributor to publications as diverse as W Magazine, Vogue Paris, 032C, and System, is a contemporary legend with a signature aesthetic. The photographer is also an avid football fan and loyal supporter of both Bayern Munich and the German national team. He has published numerous editorial and books with a football focus.

 

Teller’s photographs will launch exclusively in a collection of publications, while a showcase and limited edition zine will debut in Paris during the UEFA EURO 2016.
