Adidas Football’s latest drop is taking us all the way to Russia.
With only three weeks to go until the start of the FIFA World Cup, adidas has dropped a boot to unleash the speed of the game’s most dangerous players in the beautiful game’s showpiece tournament.
The all-new X18+ is designed with new innovations to provide stability and support at high speed. A laceless upper locks-down the mid-foot during high speed moments, while a new outsole is engineered for lightweight movement.
The boot – which drops as part of adidas’ Energy Mode pack – will debut in this weekend’s Champions League final before being worn at the World Cup by players including Mo Salah, Gabriel Jesus and Luis Suarez.
NOTD? It’s pronounced ‘noted’, FYI.
Ah. And they are? Samuel Brandt and Tobias Danielsson from Stockholm in Sweden. They rose through the ranks as remixers for other artists, and are now producing bangers for themselves. Here’s their latest one – ‘I Wanna Know’, featuring Bea Miller.
What’s it like? A dance track which sounds like a pop song. Which is our favourite kind of dance track. And actually, our favourite kind of pop song too. We like this tune a lot, needless to say.
Stink Studios has once again teamed up with adidas Football to launch style icon Paul Pogba Season III of the adidas Football x Pogba Capsule Collection.
Designed to reflect Pogba’s personality and creativity both on and off the pitch, the latest collaboration includes a range of clothing, footwear and accessories designed for the stadium and the street.
Adidas launch the new Paul Pogba capsule collection in a series of films created by Stink Studios. Each film encapsulates the style and individuality of Pogba – set to the new track “Game Hunt” by Serious Klein.
Adidas designers worked closely with the player to ensure the range represents his creativity and unique sense of style, highlighted in the range’s striking burgundy and metallic grey colour palette. Standout pieces include a reversible velvet bomber jacket with PP detailing, a unique long sleeve velvet tee with a metallic silver zip up the side and a luxury black leather backpack with PP branding and silver toned hardware. The range also includes track pants, tees, a cap and a signature ball. On-pitch footwear includes the PP PREDATOR 18+ CONTROL, featuring a metallic grey upper and deep burgundy PURECUT LACELESS system. The shoe is also available in cage and street models.
The cage shoe features the same upper as the on-pitch boot, while the street shoe features a sleek all-grey design. Both shoes include the brand’s revolutionary BOOST technology for comfort on any surface. In fitting with the range, adidas Football will be launching the collection in the fashion capital of the world, Paris. The collection will be available in select fashion and trend stores and will also be available via adidas.com and adidas stores in Paris, London, Moscow, Beijing, Shanghai, New York, Manchester, Sao Paulo, Dubai, Bogata, Santiago, and Tokyo. The films created by Stink Studios were directed by Stink Films director, Giorgio Bruni, and will break on 30th April across online and social.

Moments happen spontaneously, and all around us. And too often they pass us by. To remind ourselves that every day is worth celebrating, we worked with photographer Martin Parr to document the magic of authentic moments as they happened. This is the Kodak Moments Project.
