adidas has just dropped their first-ever 100% vegan football boot with Paul Pogba and Stella McCartney – the Predator Freak.
Following an early tease this week, the limited-edition model is the latest iteration of the Three Stripes iconic model, celebrating McCartney and Pioche’s shared love of design and sustainability to deliver a plant-powered Predator that performs at elite standards.
Pogba actually played an integral role developing the boot, which arrives in a fresh white Primeknit upper is adorned with striking leopard-print and Earth Protector graphics. adidas’ Demonskin cutting-edge rubber spikes feature on the boot in signal orange, while signature adidas Stella McCartney detailing includes an opalescent finish and an ombré rainbow mirror metallic plate and heel logo.
Speaking about the collaboration, Stella McCartney said: “:ast year during lockdown, adidas brought Paul and I together for The Huddle which is where this idea was first born. Hearing how passionate he was about fashion and learning how much we had in common really sparked the inspiration for co-creating this iconic boot.
One comment that stuck with me was how fashion was part of his personality both on and off the pitch, so it was important for this to shine through in the design. This is just the beginning of adidas by Stella McCartney’s work in this space, and we can’t wait to share what else is to come!”
Paul Pogba said: “I am a footballer first and foremost, but I have a huge interest in fashion and design and I’ve always wanted to explore this further. This collaboration has been particularly special for me because I’ve been a fan of Stella McCartney’s work for a long time, so when we came together for The Huddle last year and had this idea, it felt like the perfect opportunity to create something.
“It was in the middle of lockdown and I was missing playing football so much, so it was an incredible feeling to be able to focus on something that combines my love for the game with my passion for style. The boots we created with adidas are bold and unique, and I can’t wait to wear them when I step onto the pitch.”
