adidas have revealed their limited-run choice of colours for this year’s World Cup!
This bold new colour choice of Black / Sun Yellow will be used across all of adidas’ football boots in celebration of this summer’s tournament. Meaning you can expect to see the adiPure III and f50 adiZero lines, in addition to these fantastic Predator X‘s.
Incorporating the brightest and the darkest colours on the South African national flag – we reckon adidas have crafted a nicely balanced colourway, that’s likely to compliment just about any National Team Kit!
The Sun Yellow is used sparingly across the upper, highlighting the signature 3-Stripes and Predator element on the forefoot, leaving the Black to showcase the soft leather used across the rest of the football boot.
That’s just the upper though – the soleplate is a different story! Almost entirely Yellow – we reckon it won’t be hard to spot your favourite Predator_X wearers in this summer’s tournament – as long as their feet aren’t flat to the floor!
Speaking of wearers, adidas will be hoping from strong tournaments from the likes of Michael Ballack, Steven Gerrard and Xavi to make sure they see their flagship boot kicking their latest ball – the Jo’Bulani – in the World Cup Final!
What do you think to this new colourway?
Do you think it embodies this summer’s World Cup in South Africa? If not – what would you have gone for?

1st comment! don’t like it
Can’t wait to see the AdiZero, hoping it will be sun/black rather than black/sun 🙂
ERRRRRR!!!! nike pulled off that colourway off great, with the yellow midwest gold and black/black yellow at the start of the season. adidas flopped it.sorry adidas fans =(
im not really liking the this color for the preds and the adipures, but the photos of the adizero ive seen in this color are awesome. black and yellow has always been my favorite color combo for boots 😀
i think messi is wearing the adiZeros in the second leg against inter of the champions league.
Nadeem – Looks like his signature f50i’s to me!
Look for the gold in the heel section!
Xavi will probably stick to his PowerSwerves. I really wish that the adiPure III would have been Sun Yellow for the upper with Black accents instead of the other way around.
FUZZY, the adiZero is going to have both options that you mentioned.
Best Predator X colorway up to date.. C.A PEĂĆ’Ă˘â‚¬ËśAROL !!!
mmmmm, like the combination, but is not a worldcup coloway, adidas must used the jabulani’s colors
it’s a safe colorway.
adidas have tried something similar to this in the previous champions league on their powerswerve 🙂
white and orange would be much better
I like what adidas have done and don’t think its safe colours.
Whilst most boots are overly bright, adi have gone with something more stylish and know that the black on yellow will show up well on the TV cameras at the world cup.
A lot of thought and planning would have gone into this, good job adidas.
I like em, reminds me of the firs f50s
I like it, but it has been done before. Also anyone see the Liverpool new kit photo of Stevie G??? is he wearing a new white and blue predator x???
I like the look of these boots, especially how the powerspine is yellow. But I must say, these promo shots are some of the ugliest I have ever seen!
i is a good boot
