If you could wear the Stellar Pack adidas ACE 16+ Purecontrol and nothing else on Saturday afternoon with out getting sent off/arrested, would you? Of course you would. A laceless naked golden-wonder marshalling the midfield. It would take until first half stoppage time before anyone noticed, we reckon. They'd be so lost in that dreamy golden soleplate to even realise your Djemba-Djemba's were offside.

Not sure where this is going, so we'll get back on track. This here lies the next edition of adidas' on-pitch footwear for the Three Stripe's pool of ACE players – a delicious gold, white and black combination to be worn by Mesut Ozil and Paul Pogba et al. from September 27. A predominantly white Primeknit upper is splashed with flickered gold that overflows from the metallic soleplate and finishes with a block colouring on the stretched area on the top of the foot. Shades of the White/Gold/Black adidas Predator Absolute, for us. Hence the immediate affection.
