Adidas Rio

As if weren’t already excited enough about the World Cup in Brazil next summer…

Today, adidas have launched the Samba Pack – Brazilian inspired football boots aimed at celebrating the vibrancy and exuberance of the World Cup host nation.

For the first time ever, as part of the Samba Collection adidas has released a new boot from each of its four boot ranges, adizero f50, predator, nitrocharge and 11pro, with an array of new bright, exciting colourways.

Each boot has been designed with its own distinct identity and cutting edge technology, inspiring the next generation of footballer.

The Samba Collection launch marks the start of the adidas “All in or Nothing” 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil campaign. The tournament is the world’s largest event and the ultimate platform, where it will be Game On or Game Over for the World’s best teams and federations.

The full roster of adidas star players will be involved in the campaign from Leo Messi and Oscar to Dani Alves and Mesut Ozil.

As a boot designed for ‘The Engine’, the player who is always running, tackling and relentlessly powering his team, the Samba nitrocharge™ encourages its wearer to go Full on or be Gone.
