Soccer and American football are two of the most versatile sports you can play. Obviously, if you have the day at your disposal, you can see to play, but if you have night, all you need is light. That must’ve been the thinking, then, when adidas started thinking about your feet.
Enter ‘The Enlightened Pack’, adidas’ set of cleated performance footwear that illuminates when light shines on their patented stripes and laces. The Enlightened Pack is a set of black and reflective white soccer and football cleats that range from the four main soccer silos (adizero f50, predator, nitrocharge, 11pro) to adidas football’s current adizero Smoke “Spotlight” colorway (a shoe worn by NFL star quarterback Robert Griffin III of the Washington Redskins).
In reality, The Enlightened Pack makes all the sense in the world. It’s already difficult enough to play under bright lights when the night has fallen. With so many moves being made and seeing blurs in your peripheral vision, reflective materials can help you identify your friends and your opponents on the field, no matter if you’re looking to score a goal or get into the endzone.
The Enlightened Pack will officially debut on the feet of Europe’s best players in the UEFA Champions League on October 22-23 and will be available to you and the rest of the world at selected adidas retailers today.
