The World Cup so close you can taste it, and today Sneaker Report got a little closer to the action when our friends at adidas sent over the 2014 Battle Pack.
When originally debuted earlier this month, the adidas Battle Pack bolsted bright, vibrant color cleats inspired by the war paint of native warriors and features gold stripes representing the ultimate goal, the World Cup trophy. Included in the pack were five cleats, each designed for a specific player and game type to help differentiate the models and what each cleat is meant for. The pack features the Lionel Messi signature adizero F50, Predator, Nitrocharge, 11Pro and adizero F50 all done in distinct colorways and circle graphics throughout the upper that may catch the eye of other players. Messi wasn't the only one with a specially made cleat as adidas designed the pack for other athletes as well including Phillip Lahm, Luis Suarez, Dani Alves, and Mesut Ozil.
