adidas Launch The 'Dark Script' Pack

Yep, adidas have just sorted out your pre-season haven't they? Throwing darkened designs across their laceless line-up to create the ultimate crowd-pleasing collection, the 'Dark Script' pack suits up in the shadows for a return to business.

Tactically dropping just as players return to their clubs for the new campaign, the Three Stripes offer up their complete silo collection under a delicious cover of darkness. The Predator 19+, X 19+, COPA 19+ and Nemeziz 19+ all take on blackout colourways with each respective silhouette packing some subtle graphic game across its laceless upper.

The Predator 19+ naturally headlines the 'Dark Script' pack with a more polished finish than the rest of the matte black collection. Shades of black dance across the upper to create a shimmering, almost oil-slick effect when in motion, while the stripes, studs and collar are all blasted in black for a low-key aesthetic.

The 'Dark Script' pack won't be dished out to the adidas pool of professional players – the brand have alternative on-pitch plans for later in the month – but this collection is nailed on to be one of the best selling drops of the 2019/20 season. Pick your silo, wrap it in black. The X 19+ follows the same route as the Predator, while throwing some graphic shapes on the soleplates for an added bit of stealthy style.

The COPA 19+, no stranger to a blackout, is once again comes coated in an all black upper with white branding on the heels and a bit of shine on the stripes to keep things interesting. The Nemeziz 19+ also opts for the matte black vibe allowing the 'Nemeziz' branding on the instep of the heels to take centre stage in gold. And that's a wrap. Pre-season sorted. Take your pick and then spend the rest of the month resisting the temptations of drop after drop in July.
