Pack features white and gold colourway to represent the light side of the moon
We take a closer look at adidas Football launch of the Stellar pack boots and the continuation of a journey which started with the release of Mercury Pack, followed by the Speed of Light Pack. Inspired by the light side of the moon, the boots are available in a white and gold colourway and come in adidas’ X16+ PURECHAOS and Ace 16+ PURECONTROL silos.
The world’s first high-performance laceless boot and one of the most innovative boots in the industry – The ACE 16+ PURECONTROL – features a white Primeknit upper with NON STOP GRIP (NSG) technology to deliver an unrivalled surface for close ball control, whilst a PURECUT system, in gold, creates an uninterrupted striking surface. The ACE 16+ PURECONTROL will be worn by the likes of Paul Pogba and Mesut Ozil.
The X16+ PURECHAOS – designed for the game’s fastest players and those who like to cause chaos – features a state-of-the-art PURECUT SOCK SYSTEM, which covers the boot laces to give players the ultimate fit. The white NON STOP GRIP (NSG) finish features an updated star design whilst a gold SPRINTFRAME outsole offers stability during high-speed movements. The X16+ PURECHAOS will be worn by the likes of Gareth Bale and Luis Suarez.
Customers at adidas’ flagship stores across Europe have already been the first to see the new Stellar pack through a ground-breaking in store Virtual Reality experience on PlayStation®VR. Visitors were not only the first to see the new boots, but were given an exclusive experience on the new PlayStation®VR headset before its release. The in store experience went live on September 21st and is the first time a football boot has been launched through a VR experience before its official release. The experience will continue until October 9th in flagship stores all over Europe including London, Barcelona, Madrid, Berlin, Paris and Milan. PlayStation®VR is the forthcoming Virtual Reality headset for PlayStation®4, launching globally on October 13th 2016.
Stellar Pack will be worn on-pitch from September 27th by some of football’s biggest names – including Paul Pogba, Gareth Bale, Luis Suarez and Mesut Ozil – and will be available to purchase from selected retailers and adidas.com from September 30th.

ADIDAS | Manchester United Film as part of First Never Follows Film Series
adidas has today launched a Manchester United special, as part of its new First Never Follows film series. The film launches the new third kit for Jose Mourinho’s first season in charge of the Red Devils as it plays on the media frenzy which has dominated his appointment and big name signings.
The series – featuring bespoke films of some of the biggest clubs, players and managers in the world – provides a defiant response from a series of star players to the feverous gossip, debate and hype that surrounds each club in the build-up to the start of the 2016/17 season.
Famous Manchester United fan and UK grime artist Stormzy opens the film by dismissing a billboard outside Old Trafford which has been vandalised by rival fans. The film then cuts to the team training and working hard for the season ahead, interspersed with parodies of typical pre-season television broadcasts as pundits become more and more frenzied about the club’s off-pitch news. The film closes with the team ready and focused for stepping out onto the pitch and the season ahead.
In the film, the players including David De Gea, Ander Herrera, Morgan Schneiderlin, Juan Mata and Luke Shaw also wear the new Speed of Light boots – the ACE 16+ PURECONTROL in Solar Yellow and X16+ PURECHAOS in Solar Red – which will be worn on pitch for the start of the 2016/17 season.
