adidas Launch The "Virtuso Pack"

This is your adidas on-pitch collection for the rest of the 2018/19 season and it drops under the "Virtuso Pack" title as the Three Stripes pull out the colourful vibes for spring. Set to be worn by all adidas athletes from this week onwards, the collection sees the Predator, COPA, Nemeziz and X all receive a splash of colour on their clean white canvases.

Following the launch of the Predator and Nemeziz street editions last week, adidas have now introduced their on-pitch updates that will remain in the spotlight throughout the business end of season and Champions League climax. In terms of overall aesthetic, it's one of the most straight forward packs of the season in that each silo is executed in plain white before being blasted with a bright colour for an added sense of identity. Four silos, all similar from a distance, it's strong look that will dominate pitches in a wash of white.

The full "Virtuso Pack" has been styled by ASAP Ferg and Manchester United's Paul Pogba, and features pops of pulsating paint across each respective silo. For Pogba, he'll be wearing the laceless Predator 19+ in pristine white with blue branding on the Three Stripes, Forged Primknit ridges and speckled graphic across the Primeknit collar construction. Expect the likes of Matteo Guendouzi, Mesut Ozil and Aymeric Laporte to join Pogba in the re-freshed design.

The COPA 19+ packs the most clinical of the designs from the "Virtuso Pack" as adidas hook up the laceless boot with an all white upper which only reserves colour for the Three Stripes on the instep and heel – green in this case. It's the first all white COPA 19+ and that leather has never looked more sumptuous.

The Nemeziz 18+ is the boldest of the collection as it throws patterns of pink across the upper for an eye-catching design. With numerous players already sighted in the next-generation Nemeziz 19+, this drop could well be the the final round for the current generation. Messi will switch into this drop now that adidas have seemingly haunted his own signature line.

The X 18+ wraps up the "Virtuso Pack" with bolts of electric yellow across the upper in a move that isn't a huge departure from the all-white "Spectral Mode" drop last September. As with the last set of adidas colour-updates, each leading silo is available in laceless and laced editions.
